    I just stick on either Chemical Brothers whole collection or Infected Mushroom
  • Just about anything by Slayer, early Metallica, or early Nine inch nails does the trick for me.

    Chris Su - First Snow
    Slipknot - psychosocial

    +1 GnR Sweet Cild o' Mine.
    Makes me ride like a demon but am usually in tears by the end!!!
  • Anything by the tresor label
    +1 for infected mushroom plus other psytrance usually does the job
    on a more rock orientated flavour Rage Aganst the Machine never fail
    Gogol Bordello
    Iggy
    Ramones ...
    The Fall can be quite good as well especially their earlier stuff

    Motown and Stax can usually be really good when not a ballad...think land of a 1000 dances by Wilson Pickett

    countless others I can't remember at the moment.. need to check my non Apple MP3 player

    mind you I usually don't listen to anything offroad mostly if I'm back on the commute...it's been a while or just having a tarmac spin on teh way to a track
    Enough bikes to open a bike shop but always room for one more...
