Hi Guys,

I was wondering what music people will listen to while playing, to bring back their nostalgia from the vanilla playing days. For me I will definitely have the following playing:

  • In Flames

  • To/Die/For

  • All That Remains

  • Killswitch Engage

  • Lamb of God

  • Dream Theater

  • As I Lay Dying

  • Nightwish

  • Soilwork
  • And many more... As you can see I was listening to a lot of metal then. I also had an oldies classic rock playlist I listened to a lot, which was quite eclectic which I will also try to recreate. It was literally songs dad called out to me so I could download on Limewire at the time, that he didn't have in his CD collection.

    How about you?

    I recognize a lot of these songs, but my experience playing Classic was a bit more nerdy. Is it weird that I played with the sound: ON? (and luved it?) I adore the music in-game, I think it's some of the best music out there. I'll be sticking with the game's original soundtrack but if anyone has other titles to share I'll definitely be listening to those in my off-time! Razz

    (Okay, fine, maybe I'll cave and turn on some music in PvP)

    I actually really like listening to the game's background music and sound effects for full immersion. On the off chance I feel like listening to music, RHCP and Three Days Grace will be my probably be my first choices.

    Like Tropical said, I'm probably just going to have the game music and sound effects on rather than listen to other stuff. I think I just want to get some nostalgia for a bit before I dive back into real-world music while I play.

    Once that happens I'll probably listen to the music I listened to back when I started playing WoW for another round of nostalgia haha

    Besides the background music, my nostalgia inducing bands would definitely be Hammerfall and old Nightwish. Riding to Hammerfall while listening to Hammerfall playing "Let The Hammer Fall" is so meta.

    Selexin In Flames was then and still is one of my favourite bands. I was only around 10 when I started playing (towards the end of classic, start of BC) and fondly remember listening to Kamelot whilst farming in the Hellfire Peninsula.

    My main game right now is Warcraft III and I listen to a lot of Cradle of Filth when I need to make the high-APM plays :).

    Did you hear the latest In Flames album "I, The Mask" released a few days ago? Loads of really nice tracks in there!

    Similar to this for me. When I'm levelling, especially on my first character, I'll be experiencing the in-game music and sounds.

    I often listen to WoW soundtracks generally anyway. I love so many of them.

    When I'm grinding or farming, and during aspects of the level 60 game, I will probably switch to other music though so keep the suggestions flying. Wink

    Same here. Will have the ingame music on loop and on volume 100.
    When grinding, some drum'n'base or lowfi hiphop tunes get me going.

    Anders well your username certainly confirms your loyalty to Mr Friden! Good choice Smile
    I too love the games soundtrack and intend to have it cranked, especially in the early days after classic launch, but then as time goes by I'll alternate between music and soundtrack.

    I'm excited, I can't wait!

    I'll give the vanilla-era playlist that guy compiled a listen at the very start and then switch over to in-game music Razz

    Definitely the OST as it's aged so well and honestly brings back some of the strongest WoW nostalgia for me. I guess after a long while I probably will be open to listening to something else as I play. Actually I often think the art and music is the one of the only things that still retains it's integrity in retail WoW today.

    Definitely the in-game music. I still listen to the wow soundtrack on a daily basis.
