Music to Word: Writing Playlist

I wrote a while back about the writing environment and have lately been inspired to put together my writing playlist. But, first, a few words of note: I use roughly this playlist for every kind of writing because I’ve found that louder, faster music tends to help me write faster and better, whether its fiction, non-fiction or whatnot. I’m only going to list artists, but will note individual songs if only one or two are on my list.
