All of the bands listed are good.
Rage againist the machine will get you going too.....
I do my best work while listening to House Of Schock and also the "forgotten albums" from classic bands...like ZZ Top's "Afterburner" album, Boston's "Third Stage", John Cougar's "Scarecrow", Tom Petty's "Southern Accents", Joan Jett's "Album", George Thorogood's "Maverick", and Ted Nugent's "Intensities In Ten Cities".
For motivational inspiration, I turn to L7's "Bricks Are Heavy" album and Phantom Blue's "Built To Perform", as well as instrumental albums from Brad Gillis, Earl Slick and Jennifer Batten.
It IS a part of the creative process for sure!
It changes from time to time, but lately its been Cannibal Corpse and Sepultura.
Lately, it's been Johnny Horton...
I have a wierd ass variety going on from Bob Marley, Motorhead, Clash, Sex Pistols, Chilli Peppers, Rollin's, Peter Tosh, Stray Cats, GG Allin, Six Feet Under to Hank Williams.
But AC/DC is my first love, ever since my dad tock me to see them in 77, when I was 8.
And yes, Bon Scott, was the man.
"every time i hear "orinoco flow" it just makes me want to bang out another hot rod."
Milli Vannili? Michael Bolton?
You guys are SO under suspicion. . . . .
. . . .and now, back to the show. . . .
Yeah, Bon Scott AC/DC, Humble Pie, DLR era Van Halen all with the volume pretty pegged.
i've been listening to a lot of social distortion latley.
I often feel "the rhythm of the night" ha ha ha
I have a 300 disc CD changer mostly full of the finest obscure 80's hair metal in the garage. It is set to play at random to a pair of Klipch's with 15 inch woofers up in the corners of the garage. My old lady can often times not hear the TV inside because I am rocking out across the yard with my ear plugs in so I don't have to listen to the air compressor.
as for the greatest bands I like to hear pop up at random:
Guns and Roses
Pretty Boy Floyd
Bang Tango/Beautiful Creatures
The greatest Rock and roll band to come from Lexington Illinois - Demolition Derby
Murderdolls/Frankenstein Drag Queens
and let us not forget...The Sea Hags!
Dead to Fall
thats the fairly constant list of tunes I jam to at the shop..and of course other shit that the rest of the boys wanna hear..
When I need some inspiration, I put on some Richard Clayderman or some Zamfir. Kick ass baby!
AC/DC for sure and the HEADSTONES,you southern guys would love these guys.The lead singer has split from the band to form his own band the Hugh Dillion Redemption Choir http://www.thehdrc.com/
And I agree listening to Bon Scott really fuckin loud causes speedin tickets,but who gives a shit?Right boys......Shiny
Janes Addiction (the old stuff not the watered down later crap)
Smashing Pumkins (same...the old stuff)
and of course, old Black Sabbath.

For sawing and grinding and welding it's hard to beat The Cramps, The Demonics or The Ramones.
And for generally getting nothin' done on a sunny day, some Trojan ska and reggae.
The rest of the time, well just about any blues, soul, country and rockabilly will keep me entertained.
And kids, just remember this: Death before Disco!
Love the sound of burning rubber and the tone of grinding steel!
What ever your style , punch the pedal to the metal....
Rage Against the Machine
