    I am a weirdo, I listen to a pretty wide variety when playing.

    Disarmonia Mundi -Best WOW Melodic Death Metal
    Pain - Industrial Metal from Sweden, amazing
    Kamelot - cool sounding and medeival

    Others you might find easier to listen to would be like classic rock, Boston, Journey, Foreigner, Queen, Rush, The Doors,
    Faster paced but not really heavy Rage Against the Machine, System of A Down, Disturbed, etc.

    Another I'd check out is Fatboy Slim for some more funky sort of style, it's suitable to WoW most times. Then be a weirdo and add all this list to Abba, Coldplay, U2, Elton John, Bon Jovi and Radiohead and you have for a well balanced playlist. Variety is the best.

    I found some of the good old faster (sometimes downright dirty) Jimmy Hendrix stuff (Voodoo Chile, Purple Haze and the like) very effective and fun tanking music. While the more angry/fast stuff can certainly help when you're mashing your rotations there's nothing like Jimmy for repositioning, shockwaving and focussed tankage...

    Liked seeing stuff like Kamelot being mentioned

    I tend to put some lacuna coil in the playlist, currently have some songs of kings of leon too... Oh and for blues; Joe Bonamassa can nicely ripp things up. Oh! and Steve Vai's Erotic Nightmare (okay it is weird but that opening riff just Rocks!)
    And hell... even had some funky James Brown stuff in there yesterday... But well, the last is quite rare. I tend to fall in the blues/rock/metal camp most of the time.

    Hi, some of the music I like to listen to while tanking.

    Skillet - Rebirthing, Comatose and Whispers In The Dark is some really good songs, they aren't very heavy
    Korn
    System of a Down
    Marilyn Manson
    Rage Against the Machine
    Slipknot
    AC/DC
    Soil
    Nonpoint
    Volbeat(danish rock/metal band, they are really good. Sing in English, cept for a few lines, if you look on youtube most of them is translated by some nice danes) - The Gardens Tale is a really, really good song and Sad Mans Tongue
    Skindred
    Iced Earth
    Three Days Grace
    Kings of Leon
    Disturbed
    Godsmack
    Creed

    While healing on my pally, I have a very diffrent taste. For some reason I find rock/metal/heavy metal stressing while healing some fights But that's just me.

    Prince - Kiss
    Jack Johnson
    B.J. Thomas - Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
    Michael Bublé
    Rufus Wainwright
    Rainbow
    Kings of Leon
    Bachman Turner Overdrive
    Elvis
    Frank Sinatra
    Billy Idol
    Coldplay
    Creedence Clearwater Revival
    D-A-D(danish rock band, not very big in the international. But they are a legend in Denmark. D-A-D is Disneyland After Dark, they got sued in their early days so they had to change their name. Sing in English)
    Bright Eyes
    Bo Kaspers Orkester
    Damien Rice
    Death Cap For Cutie
    Eagles
    Outlandish

    This got kinda long, hope you can use some of it. The healing play list wasn't really needed, but you did say you like a lot different music, so just wrote it as well.

    Kind of envious here, I find that if I listen to music, I can't hear vent properly, even with the music on low there's always the one guy who sounds like he's in a different country than his mic.

    When I do listen to music though, it's usually something fast and simple like Dragonforce. You can bash their musical merits all you want, but for fast paced, pure adrenaline rushes, they suit the purpose.

    for farming runs i'll tune in to "the buzz radio" @ winamp, alternative music radio.

    and for every other situation i choose any song of "In Flames, Metallica, Rise Against, Freundeskreis, Beginner, Ricardo Villalobos, Richie hawtin, Matthew herbert" and some others. depends on what happens during the fight

    Anytime I'm raiding or just playing wow really and BT starts playing on my iTunes I get transported to a place of happy feelings and everything just seems more epic.

    Available on Amazon - and great tanking music! Similar folksy march-metallic stuff could include Saltatio Mortis and Rammstein.

    Folk metal and alternative folk of any kind seem to make great tanking music: Gaate, Lumsk, Hedningerna, Sorten Muld, ...

    Jonas Brothers and Hannah Montana

    Joking of course. I agree with a lot of these selections. Metal/Rock seems to go well with tanking. I would add Alestorm and Rage Against the Machine.

    Personally I can't listen to music while tanking anymore because I zone out and stop paying attention to the raid and often times die... But here are some of my favorite tank-themed songs:

    Heal Me - by Freak Kitchen (Don't we all sing this anyway?)
    I'm a Warrior - by Rob Rock (Pallies/bears/DK's might not appreciate this)
    The Bone Carver - by Pyramaze (Fun story about vanquishing evil, etc.)
    Damage Control - by John Petrucci (pop shield wall!)
    Dance of Death - by Iron Maiden (Fun for Heigan)
    Dark Eternal Night - by Dream Theater (Fits most boss fights)
    I Died for You - by Iced Earth (typically a song you don't want to relate to your raids)
    Last Laugh - by Iced Earth (I figure naming a tanking item is a plus)


    There are plenty more but I have a final to go take now :/

    I have a weird taste I guess, but on progression nights I have to listen to stuff like Jack Johnson and Dave Mathews for progression nights, and then its off to the 150 gigs of shuffle greatness. Naxx and stuff that is on farm we have a healer that plays DJ over vent which is quite amazing...she takes requests and if she doesnt have it manages to download it before the end of the raid.
