    Default Music and cubing

    Everone has music that puts them in "The zone."

    What music works best for you when cubing? For me, the John Butler Trio and Dave Matthews Band get me in the zone for cubing.

    I cube best with some Justin King, probably just anything mellow, but I was listening to him when I got my current record of 1:27
    I find when I listen to metal, it's too complex, and I get mixed up :s

    I get my best times to the song "Stronger". It has this very encouraging and calm tune that I can easily slip into and perform well.

    Otherwise I find Sum41 music works decently as well, but I get irritated of it fast. I usually then just alternate between Sum41 and some random Techno/Dance music, anything with a beat

    3x3 OH average: ~40 (working on it !)

    Hi :-)

    Something very rhythmic would definitely be good. Even i, like Arnaud, prefer peace and quiet i guess Talking Heads - Remain in Light should do the trick

    My favourite music would distract me too much

    Oldies such as Bob Dylan, Bob Seger, Tom Petty, or maybe Journey.
