Once, I listened to some new Jack Johnson while I was lifting...baaaaaaaaadddddddd idea. I was too busy enjoying the music that I forgot to breath correctly. Next thing you know, I'm blacking out, hearing things that aren't there, and hunched over a trash can.

When I'm doing cardio, however, I like some fast paced rap, hip - hop, or any alternative. T.I. is one of my favorites right now, always has been, but now more than usual. Rage Against The Machine has some pretty heavy tracks that bump up your intensity.
You black out if you don't breath correctly when lifting? You should see a doctor. I usually don't listen to music when I am lifting, just during cardio. At the moment I'm listening to the new Silverchair Album , Queens of the Stone Age and some Anthony Hamilton.
