    Bringing your own music on the rides

    So does anyone else occasionally bring their own music on the rides? Ever since I read about the imagineer (I think I read about it on MiceAge but I could be wrong) who used to bring his own headphones when he went on Space Mountain, and that's where the idea for music on Space Mountain came from, I've been bringing my own music whenever I go into the park. I generally like very loud, hardcore music anyway so it fits very well with riding a roller coaster. So here are my ideal songs that I've found for some of the different rides at Disneyland:

    Space Mountain:
    Korn - Narcissistic Cannibal
    Jay Price - Indie Anthems

    California Screamin:
    DJ Jean - The Launch
    Jay Z & Linkin Park - Dirt Off Your Shoulder / Lying From You

    Splash Mountain
    Beastie Boys - So Whatcha Want
    Cypress Hill - Insane in the Brain

    Haunted Mansion (Regular)
    Dead Can Dance - The Host of Seraphim
    Charlie Clouser - Dead Silence Main Title

    Haunted Mansion Holiday
    Marilyn Manson - This is Halloween
    Korn - Kidnap the Sandy Claus
    Rise Against - Making Christmas

    Fantasmic
    The Prodigy - The Fat of the Land
    Rammstein - Feuer frei
    New Order - Confusion (Pump Panel Reconstruction Mix)

    Anyone else use their own music to customize some of the rides at Disneyland?

    Host of the Seraphim is a very nice choice for Mansion - might have to try that one! (though I associate it with Knott's and their vampire themed mazes at this point pretty firmly first thing).

    Re: Bringing your own music on the rides

    I used to do this a lot - then in short sequence bruised the holy hell out of my ear when I hit a side pad with the earphone, and later in the day lost my walkman (yes, cassette based, deal with it I'm old). Tried recently but it's just not as much fun for some reason? It takes me really not liking the ride soundtrack to do it.

    That being said, I used to be able to time Screamin' perfectly for the Red Hot Chili Pepper's cover of Love Rollercoaster. The ultimate irony for me was blasting that in my ears so I couldn't hear the crappy RHCP song they opted for.
    Woo! Spring is coming!

    Without earphones it makes it possible to join all those conversations taking place on Space Mountain.

    Question - how is it rude and antisocial on a ride? What social experience is going on there other than all being on the ride together? Wouldn't having a conversation - really the only thing listening to music prevents - be drastically more rude than listening to your own music?

    Sadly, walling off the world with a digital screen is becoming as common as blocking it out with earbuds. The Louvre is just one of the major museums getting flooded with complaints demanding they mandate at least a few "iPad-free days" every week, due to the hordes of tourists who mob the Mona Lisa and other famous works with their Pads, Pods, phones and point-n'-shoots, rushing from painting to painting like trophy hunters.

    Re: Bringing your own music on the rides

    Actually yes but only for Space Mountain, and even then not ALL the time. Only when I remember and give myself time to get ready!

    When the band Avenged Sevenfold was working on their self-titled album a few years back, one of the draft titles for one of their songs was called "Disneyland Acid Trip". When my cousin and I were watching the bts DVD and they mentioned that and played the clip of the song it immediately got us thinking of SM. Of course the song title was later changed but that stuck in our heads so we tried it out one time and it really did fit weirdly perfectly cos the song is fast paced & being in the dark with the lights, it all blends really well!

    That's not to say I don't enjoy the music that SM comes with obviously, but every now and then I do change it up

    Re: Bringing your own music on the rides

    I'm ok with turning Space Mountain and California Screaming into Rockin Roller Coaster, just like WDW. I don't really ride those anyway.
    But I don't understand why take away the soundtrack for the other classic ones.

    Sometimes I will listen to the Main Street Christmas BGM during hot summers days as I walk through MS. I usually just listen to Disneyland music on my iPhone while at Disneyland.
    As we say to the animals, that's the end of the lion.

    Re: Bringing your own music on the rides

    I do but only with the original soundtrack so like Space mountain there are times when I listen to the first version of audio during the complete ride of space mountain the one that sounds like surf music and the only other ride is Cali screamer I listen to the regular soundtrack seeing that most of the times the speakers don't work or the audio cuts out
