Music For Hacking

Recommended Posts

I know when I sit in front of my pc; blindly gazing into pixels, deteriorating my retinas, always with my music playing.

My favorite artists while honing my skills are:

The Black Keys

CCR - If you don't know em, you heard them before

Incubus

System of a Down

Boston

Sublime

Middle Class Rut...

What do you guys like scarring your ears to?

Just going to list off some favorites, it'd take me at least a year to list all of my music... (not listed in any order)

A perfect Circle

Tool

God is an Astronaut

Feint

Hudson Mohawke (Particularly Fuse)

Nine inch Nails

Monster Magnet

Pendulum

Scars on Broadway

Less than Jake

Sleep Dealer

The Devil Wears Prada

Those are just a few, but then again I don't have any specific music I use when messing with stuff. It's just whatever comes on the playlist next :P

So, you like to hack to general public, American Joe type music? That's cool. Lots of people do, but I just don't get it. Hacking is supposed to be rebelling against that kind of mainstream culture IMHO (and take this with a grain of salt). Here are my top favorite albums to listen to while hacking:

1. YTCracker - Serious Business

2. YTCracker - Digital Gangster EP

3. YTCracker - Nerd Life

4. YTCracker - Chrononurga

5. YTCracker - Best of the b-sides

6. YTCracker - Nerdrap Entertainment System

7. Music Inspired by Tron - the second "Tron" album... the green one (i'm a little fuzzy on the exact title)

8. Hackers - soundtrack

9. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - soundtrack

10. Orbital - the brown album (aka Orbital 2)

Daughtry

Creed

The Fray

AudioSlave

Incubus

Hinder

to name a few.

Also a fan of classic rock (70's, 80's):

Aerosmith

AC/DC

Guns N' Roses

Queen

etc.

Recently been listening to the soundtracks from the [just ended] Humble Bundle 6: https://www.humblebundle.com/

You got a very nice selection of music there. Even though, I listen to them, I rather listen to the heavy shit.

I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned Dual Core yet seeing as how much int80 has been on the show in the past. Plus their music is just plain freaking awesome.

YTCracker is a nerd who was arrested in high school for breaking into NASA and also hacking his school. He came back as a rapping hacker and is the oldest geek rapper by far, save K&R.

Yeah, dual core and soem 8bit gmaing music http://kohina.radio.ethz.ch/kohina.ogg as well as MC Frontalot

I like this too :) We listen to the same stuff, but for the record Dual Core and MC Frontalot are only famous because YTCracker did some tracks with them to give them some limelight. Well, that's literally true for Fronalot*, but I suppose Dual Core did pretty well on their own, although YTCracker really expanded their fanbase.

* YTCracker lyric:

People compare me to MC Frontalot / but the truth is I predate him with significance (Frontalot: Yea!)

In fact, for the uninitiated, let me give you a taste of YTCracker, so you can see why I say it's hacking music:

i hated gym - cuz i never was athletic

i played a couple sports just to keep it copacetic

but i found more in computers than i ever could in hooping

every time i wrote a goto, bitch i had that baby looping

basically BASIC was the first language i spoke

and i was telling Apple deuces just where they could peek and poke

i had a five and quarter floppy labeled "PLEASE DON'T DROP ME"

used to load a million copies and no one could ever stop me

- from "Meganerd"

Can't rush hacks

Backdoors infected

SQL jack, SQL-injection

XP Command shell

DG army knows I command well

Run trojans

B*tch knows I shark it

See me IT, see me tele-market

See me on your subnet mask

Know that I defeat any block or class

Untouchable like Kevin Costner...

- I can't remember the title of this song right now but I will remember later

Note: DG is short for Digital Gangster, a term popularized by YT Cracker. Mr. Cracker is the leader of SpamTec, best friends with MC Lars, mentor to MC Frontalot and Beefy

www.ytcracker.com

www.digitalgangster.com

Oh, and since YTCracker is the most flamboyant Internet pirate behind Kim Dotcom, he actually allows you to steal his music directly from him at www.ytcracker.com/v2012/music and on IRC. He's also in the iTunes store and Pwned2Pwner if you send me your Apple ID then I will gift you a song.

You should hear him in the songs "#antisec" (he started that term, btw), "I am a Pirate", "Nerd Life", "Still DG", and "Hacker War".

Personally, I only ever heard of YTcracker because of MC Frontalot and the video he did with him and Int0x80, but I had heard of Dual core because of Hak5 and int0x80 way back season 1 I think, and MC Frontalot a few years ago. Nothing against YTcracker, just don't think hes as famous as much as he is underground.

Well, fair enough. I'm not sure that it matters, but I do think that YT is more famous. Asides from his original NASA and educational hacking, here's why:

1. I just did domain valuation:

www.dualcoremusic.com - $1,400

www.digitalgangster.com - $42,000

If you include ytcracker.com (which is also YT's site, but not the interactive one) then that's another $1,400 ($43,400 all in all).

2. YTCracker has been around way longer, and is doing better on iTunes

3. YTCracker invented the term "nerdcore", which the newer artists (like MC Lars, MC Frontalot, Dual Core, Beefy, MC Router, etc) all use to describe themselves. There's no disputing that, as they've all appeared on each others' albums and no one has contradicted the claim. On a side note, the credit for the term "iGeneration" goes to MC Lars.

4. When the FBI raided Sabu he had recently contacted YTCracker, who had agreed to make a song called #AntiSec, which was to promote LulzSec, give contact instructions to journalists, bring in new members to Anonymous, and start the AntiSec movement. The FBI allowed it to continue so that Sabu would be able to build trust. Despite this, as Sabu said after his arrest became public, the song he and YT created launched a movement that is bigger and longer lasting than LulzSec. As you may have seen all over the news, Anonymous and AntiSec have remained very active. For instance, they pwned the FTC and recently dumped a few million iPhone UDID's / Apple ID combos (has Frontalot or Dual Core ever hacked anything btw? I'm honestly curious).

<-- #antisec, by the Nerd rap king, YTCracker

http://pastebin.com/...m/mJWUDtGD <-- FTC pwnage (I disapprove, but still think it's cool, like I think "The Godfather" is cool, but I don't want the local stores being extorted)

http://pastebin.com/nfVT7b0Z <-- a few million iPhones dumped by the #antisec movement (and really, there's a lot more, just do a search)

5. I think YTCracker has lot more of a real-world government documented hacker and SEO career than his contemporaries...

6. YTCracker is the only one I always see at DEFCON with a limo, insanely hot women, Krystal, and all the trappings of a successful rapper/blackhat hacker

7. He's made a lot more music than anyone else I can think of in this genre, including Dual Core

8. Even some of the kids who follow him on his forums, IRC, and elsewhere have emerged as some of the most famous recent hackers in the news. For instance, cam0, who served time for hacking Paris Hilton, and TrainReq, who the FBI raided for hacking Miley Cyrus, both presented their hacks to the world in the name of YTCracker's DG army and remain his loyal followers to this day.

im the defacto leader of a movement

screaming "hack the planet" back in 99

hacktivism in its prime globalHell had the .mil rooted

alphabet soup and their troops in the suits kid

kicking down doors and seizing my equipment

blocking all my shipments sitting on their hitlist

0day radical emphatic beat addict

and that stab hit i envelope the game call me rabbit

I will listen to anything good, rock (Ash, Nine Inch Nails, New Order), hip-hop (Wordburglar, Jesse Dangerously, Dual Core), and electro (The Chemical Brothers, Ladytron, shemusic).

If it's not American Top 40, it goes in my music player.

that Ladytron group you mentioned looks kind of interesting. what's a good song by them?

yea Chemical Bros are good too. i prefer Paul Van Dyke and Teisto for trance, but I saw them at the 2005 Ultra Music Festival in Miami and they had lots of fireworks and people were going crazy with exciment. i meant to be intoxicated, but i was accidentally sober and it was hillarious to see a crowd of thousands of people on XTC LOL. craaaazy!

I like Mirage and Ghosts. Their later albums have a alternative feel to them, while their earlier ones involve mostly dance/electro.

You know, while on the topic of electronica; Prodigy "The Fat of the Land" is still my favorite album of the genre... it is a lot like Alice in Chains and Filter... both classic albums... and they still play "Hey man, nice shot" on movies today... goes to show... good music lasts a generation... great music will last forever... or something like that :)

"Turn my pitch up, smack my b*tch up"... classic music video, too.

Hoobastank "Running Away"
