Total dark horse sleeper hit at work is the Ace of Bass pandora station. People are oddly productive while it's playing. I think its because they are ashamed to admit they are enjoying it and just keep quiet and work. I find it immensely entertaining to watch the magic.

Depends on how much I've slept the previous night. Shonen Knife 'Osaka Ramones' if I've had little/none; 'Workingman's Dead' if I slept enough.

Workingman's and American Beauty for sharpening...Wake of the Flood for prep

When it's my turn to pick, it's Streetlight Manifesto pandora radio, or Finch pandora. When I'm alone in the kitchens on the days we are closed, its a little heavier, like Between the Buried And Me, or Coheed

Fugazi brings back high school memories. I was listening to Ramones radio yesterday. Lots of fugazi and misfits...

We are open early where I work now, so no music on sushi bar or anything like that. Back when I was younger this was for opening the kitchen --- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OrAtURpuDQo

When it's my turn, straight Pearl Jam. But I usually let the crew play their choice which includes reggae and even More popular, Rick Springfield Pandora, which luckily plays no Springfield.

That's hilarious, Chuckles. Reminds me of this scene from "Tommy Boy"

I cringe to think how much of my brain is dedicated to remembering lyrics to songs I don't even like.

From 4 to 5 am, I don't listen to much besides the hoods and the bacon cooking. 5 to 6:30, I go big and loud and bumping... lately it's been IM's Army of Mushrooms. 6:30 on, the second cook and first server shows up, so I let them play with the box until the final hump near the end of the day, when--like Chuckles--I'll put on Ace of Bass or freaking Paula Abdul or SNAP, just to mess with people and keep them from taking everything too seriously.

Captain Hollywood Project. Remember that? You'd be surprised how many of your coworkers do too!

Our morning crew is almost always classic rock but for dinner service we are really random. During Marathon Week (Dec. 26 - New Year Eve) we played all Beastie Boys, it just fit the mood for our 6 straight days of 15 hour shifts. It even spawned our mantra for the week when "No Sleep Till Brookyln" became "No Sleep Till Tuesday". This week there was alot of Modest Mouse (my doing), The White Stripes (my grill cook) and old school rap from the dishwasher.

Gotta go with some yacht rock classics like Christopher Cross or anything Michael McDonald. Just to see how grumpy it makes people.
Actually we very rarely listen to tunes. I kinda miss it. Good music makes me more productive but can be distracting or irritating to others. I try to be cognizant of other people and don't make them suffer through music I know they won't understand.
I also hate suffering if someone wants to crank Dave Matthews or Nickelback or some garbage!

Lol, depends on who gets in first, if my cooks do then its Grupo Laberinto radio on Pandora, if I do I usually start with a chill dubstep and by mid day have it swithced to 80's. Evening usually goes to classic rock or Laberinto again.

I snapped about a year ago during my third open to close shift in a row and blasted Night Ranger's "Sister Christian" for something like seven hours. The service staff that worked that day still aren't ready to talk about it.

Typically, I start the day with something pretty chilled, perhaps dubby or trip-hop. In the mid-morning, minimal techno or progressive trance. After lunch, something really dynamic, psy-trance or a banging mash-up set. Usually a sing-along to pack down and scrub the kitchen, old radiohead, wilco or recently some Richard Cheese. Its a pretty eclectic day in my kitchen.

lots of new orleans bounce(local rap) atleast when were closing the kitchen. daytime music is more relaxed like greg dulli(aghan whigs or twilight singers) neil young, interpol, against me! and plenty of other stuff im too old to recognize. its pretty common to burn mix cds or playlists at my job so even if one particular band or artist isnt popular with everybody atleast were not stuck listening to the same band for half an hour.
side note: we took old 6x9 speakers from someones car and made a cabinet for them out of the carboard boxes the carbonated cokes come in. works really well. we have em in the walk in so you dont miss any of the music while your grabbing stuff for the line.

Today - Frisky radio. An internet radio station from japan that plays minimal and progressive techno. We're shut after a re-furb, re-opening on monday and started MEP today.

Ten hours straight internet radio on my phone, I'm not looking forward to this months bill.

We rock a lot of Classic Rock, 80's, and Them Crooked Vultures when the white(r) crew is on:) otherwise, its Latino rap (don't laugh, a lot of it's actually pretty good!) If it's just me in the morning and I have a monster preplist, it's Lamb of God

After listening to music tonight during service (and it wasn't rotating choice, it was all stuff I really love playing), I am more anti-music than ever. Fine for awhile, annoying after a couple hours, makes the whole place noisier, doesn't help when things are busy, etc, etc. Who needs it.

Usually either the 60's station or the 90's station

I for one don't have any during service, one of the very few times I've snapped was about 8 years ago when the hot-entree section was slow they turned the stereo on after about 5 mins while I'm getting raped on sautee I'd had enough, I threw an over-cooked piece of chicken at the radio and yelled at them "turn that f**ken shift off" one thing I hate is people dicking off when some one else is busy, that radio never came on again during service. That was one of 4 times I've lost my cool in 13 years.
