1980's: Listened to "Alternative" music on my boombox while playing on my TRS80 Color Computer 2
1990's: Listened to "Grunge" on my Walkman while installing computers and pulling cables
Late 1990's: Listened to "Rock" streaming on my computer while installing and managing Cisco routers
2000's: Listened to "progressive-house music" streaming on my computer while pentesting and doing reverse MALWARE analysis
2010's: Listen to blues, classical, and jazz while writing security policy
I think I may be going down hill...
