As a personal favorite "I am just a programmer/developer don't get the wrong idea here", I love listening to this while working, or for example writing this post.
If you are a hacker or a wanna-be, seriously you don't need me to tell you what to listen to, being a hacker is meant to be a private thing that you only knows, so your music, unless you are one of those white hats pretending to be the good guys, ah they suck badly, there is no white, black grey a person is a person, it's something about the inner self, however good luck convincing those rich guys that they need you and sucking their money out, what they actually need is faith.
