I don't know 'bout the rest of you guys, but i can't get into a good painting swing without some decent music. For painting purposes, i like some upbeat folk music, memphis blues, and flamenco guitar.
What about you?
Music must give birth to orgasm and revolution
Latest LO Blog Post<+Tarnag> Who could help but love a name like Ultramoose, I think of a Moose with a rocket strapped to it breathing fire and wailing on a guitar
I go with some Iron Maiden and I usually watch one of their concerts while painting.
"They say the Darkness consumes you. They don't say what happens after It's done."
Coheed and Cambria have been the sound of my latest marine painting operation
What once was courage has now cursed in the wars we've made.
We are the sinners, before our graves.
I most of the time just put my mp3player on shuffle and see what comes along. Though I often listen to podcasts or catch up with The Howard Stern show as I don't have time to listen to it every day.
From time to time I'll have a movie playing in the background, sometimes with director's commentary on it.
But as for music, it can vary from the Star wars soundtrack to some kind of deathmetal/grindcore band. Depends a bit on what I feel like.
Last time I painted for a longer period on the day I had some collection of medieval folk music playing
Normally it's some heavy metal. Often part of my Iron Maiden collection (17 albums and counting...) or Megadeth, Metallica, Slayer, Trivium etc. Sometimes I put a bit of rock on too like GNR or Muse...but it's normally metal.
Then, when I'm done painting I pick up my guitar and play some metal...
Thou shalt remember:
Warhammer Fantasy armies do NOT have Codices. They have Army Books.

My iPod exists as a device that makes me do things faster (walk, paint etc) so it's normally on shuffle. If I really want to go faster then I put on a bit of J pop and sing along (this makes me faster for some reason).
I paint to the Starship Troopers soundtrack. It really helps me keep my Tyranids reasonably uniform.
I just set my player to shuffle, but make sure to leave out any songs that might be considered remotely funny as when I laugh, it throws off my brush control and has lead to some unfortunate accidents involving citadel paints and my clothes.
It can be anything ranging from good ol' battle metal(my fave) to film soundtracks including LOtR, 300 Pirates of the Caribbean
