Recently I've began reading William Gibson's Neuromancer. Also, by chance, I've also been listening to Massive Attack's "Angel" a lot again which, I feel, has a kind of cyberpunkish feel. So now I want more music that might compliment reading cyberpunk. I'm downloading Oval's 94DISKONT thinking some glitch might work? Anyways, you all know any music that kind of brings that kind of bleak techno dystopia feel?

Fluke & Underworld (mid 90's era)
Fluke's song Absurd has been used in basically every cyber-punkish movie (except the Matrix, for some reason)

Certain Einstuerzende Neubauten songs: Das Schaben (nine minutes of industrial sounds), as well as less obvious ones like Schwindel, Fiat Lux (only some parts) and Der Kuss (maybe the most beautiful guitar solo ever, in a weird way). The last three always give me some weird nostalgia, often for the original 1963-1989 Doctor Who, sometimes for something I just can't grasp.

Cyberpunk Music

**This list represents a breif list of cyberpunk music. Not all cyberpunk-style bands are listed. If your personal band is not here, please do not be offended. I have simply compiled this list from the writing of several net users and I have not (and do not intend to) keep this list up to date.
  • "In the end, cyberpunks listen to whatever the fuck they want."
  • The Velvet Underground (Gibson's favorite cyberpunk band)
  • on claims in VOX magazine, Feb 1994, that Brian Eno's "Nervenet" is "the
  • closest thing I've heard to a soundtrack for Neuromancer"
  • Gibson wrote lyrics for Dog Star Girl song on Chris Stein's "Debravation"
  • Front Line Assembly
  • Front 242
  • Negativland
  • Ministry
  • Information Society
  • Electrik Music
  • Art of Noise
  • Devo
  • Billy Idol's Cyberpunk album
  • U2 (Zoo TV?)
  • Pink Floyd
  • Chemlab
  • Sonic Youth
  • Neal Young, "Trans" album
  • Voivod
  • Many computer .mod music files can be considered cyberpunk
