I find that when I'm feeling sick (I guess sick = anything worse than typical cold...so bad cold, flu, anything else that makes me feel tired and crappy), I seem to lose my desire to listen to metal. I just feel too run down, like I don't have the energy to enjoy it. Generally I know I'm getting better when I start feeling the urge to throw on some Hibria (or whatever my latest interest is) again. Does it work the same way for most people? I'd guess yes, but no way to find out without asking, so cast your vote and add your comments.

Nah, it doesn't really work for me. When I listen to music I dedicate my whole complete attention to every little detail. If I'm sick, nausious, or I'm vomiting, feeling tired... then this becomes really difficult. Not such a big deal though, because when I get well, then it's all the more exciting to finally let the ears make love to heavy music again! Sometimes you don't know how much you really appreciate something until you miss it or lose it for awhile.

I just caught a pretty bad cold today, my tonsils are fucking killing me, everything huts and it feels like my head is about to explode any moment....it just so randomly happened that i heard some slayer a few minutes ago...so i thought what the heel, i'll put in "god hates us all" and it really makes me feel better. No idea how or why, it just does...and about what lamawalker said, there's no need to pay a lot of attention while listening to thrash, as most of it is just mindless aggression (especially old school) and besides, paying attention to the music or picking up the guitar (or bass in my case) and playing for a few hours lets you forget you sickness xD

It matters for me. If I've just got a cold or feel under the weather, then I'll still jam to some good metal. But if I'm SICK, I mean fever, shakes, puking/shitting my guts out, then no way. I don't feel like listening to hardly anything. I just want to sleep.

Good topic, since I've been wondering the same. I remember listening to Leviathan - Massive Conspiracy Against All Life the first time when I was sick, and somehow it made me feel even worse which resulted in me not being able to enjoy this album ever since because it reminds me of feeling bad. but strangely enough the last time I've been sick I found out about Caladan Brood - Echoes Of Battle on youtube by accident and listened to one song several times which actually made me forget about my sickness a bit.
so yeah I dunno if it depends on the quality or the mood of the music or just the sickness but one thing is for sure, music can affect you while beeing sick and better or worsen your state (at least for me)

If I have headaches I tone it down considerably or don't listen at all.

I do prefer "comfort" bands (Metallica, Guns N Roses, Megadeth) or mellower stuff (Soundgarden or Down) when I'm sick though.

What a crack up question..depends how sick i am, i'm obviously not going to be listening to metal while throwing up and shitting everywhere, but a cold or head ache goes down nicely with some atmospheric ambient or deppresive BM.

oh I apologize if it sounded rude, but erm ... so many times guys refer to their that part of body too, is it really rude to talk about a part of my body ? :/ I don't know, but anyway pussy has so many different meanings, but what I said... hmmm I don't think that it is that rude, actually it had humor too.

It's definitely not the same thing when I'm sick. I can't stand anything extreme in general, and I don't want to discover new albums, because I'm not totally focused on the music.

So I prefer listening to my good old prog albums

I may have mentioned it before, but when I was sick I was cured by listening Pantera for two hours.

Genuinely ill, no. It's a good time to lie back and soak up some lengthy prog albums though.
Hungover ill, definitely. The more abrasive the better.

It depends on what metal bands we're talking about. I won't listening to Marduk or Cannibal Corpse for sure, but bands like Summoning, Alas or Katatonia are ok.
