Default Music before you race?

So do you?
If so, what kind, and is there any specific songs that you pump through your ears before that long main

I personally listen to a bit of Papa Roach, Skrillex, Pendulum and Parkway Drive are just a few personal favourites.

When I was racing indoor onroad this winter, I listened to music the whole day. Even during my finals/main. It's easier to find a good rhythm imo and it makes me less nervous. Just drive with the flow of the music ^^
I usually listen to wonky music, trip hop and experimental hip hop.

When I'm racing nitro, there so much noise that I would have to turn up the volume so much, that I wouldn't hear my pitmate anymore. So I don't listen to much when I'm racing nitro.

Music totally depends on my mood. Before racing, I'll play some good old classic rock..Led zeppelin, AC/DC, Rush,..etc. Laugh if you want, but it gets me pumped and ready to burn some nitro.

Some timing with this post....LOL....the wife and I were at a race last night, just spectators untill my buggy is done and just before the nitro main a guy in his trailer started balsting Eminem and some other rap music. The wife reminded me of how I would have to listen to ac/dc razor's edge when I used to drag race.
When I get going with my nitro buggy, I am shure I will listen to music as well. I listen to just about all music, but before a race rock music seems to do it for me. Probably ac/dc again but papa roach, tool, disturbed, chevelle, and some mudvayne thrown in for good measure. Put the Ipod on rock shuffle and go with it.
