At work I have a “Loud” play list, for when things are noisy in the office and I need to concentrate on something.
Loudness helps, but an all-encompassing sound is even better for when I need to drown out other noise.
Most artists in my collection have at least a few loud songs, but some which have more than others and are more prominent on the list, such as:
The Living End
Hoodoo Gurus, especially their live album
Ocean Colour Scene
Who else would be good?
