90% of the time I listen to nothing but the engine and road noise. Otherwise I listen to the same music as SVOboy.

I normally listen to the knock sensor through the stereo, mostly because I am strange I guess but I want to know exactly what the engine is doing.

If someone is in the car though I play normal music. Mostly a mix of bluegrass and heavy metal. Nothing drives people crazier than listening to a mix of Manowar and Flatt and Scruggs

Normally whatever I have stored on the MP3 player. But if am doing experiments, nothing so I can hear the road and anything funky.

I'm listening to a radio broadcasting only pop/rock songs from last 80's, when I was a teen... But since a few weeks I often find that I forget to switch on the radio when I'm alone in the car
