really depends on the mood you wanna set, but Ratatat and MGMT never fails :] for more of a "hardcore" mood i would go with something in the rap genre that has some nice heavy bass beats.

I'm more a fan of putting some electronic music in my vids. Check out some infected mushroom.

I concur with the Muse suggestion
"Did you know that policemen are called cops because their badges used to made of copper?"
"That's cool... then why are they called pigs?"

if you can use some kinda electronic music like the waters of Nazareth song in 'that's it that's all' along with some video editing like changing the colours of they're pants with the beat of the music(which just so happens to be in that's it that's all also) then that would look cool
The 'GINGERS HAVE SOULS' kid is crazy..

I absolutely can't stand rap music in snowboard videos...the whole thug image just doesn't work for me and I think rappers use their "music" to complain even more than country singers.

Schism by Tool? I think that bass line would be killer for some epic opening snowboard footage.

Get some cruisy (or not so cruisy) Drum and Bass on the soundtrack.... Pendulum have some great choons...I used 'Spiral' on my skydiving vid and it fit in perfectly.

Bounce - MSTRKRFT would be cool too!

spend your own time figuring it out.  music is one of the biggest parts in conveying a mood or theme or vibe, so if you put music that doesnt fit the video at all, its not nearly as enjoyable to watch... like all those videos where people throw together footage and then lay over some lame "rock" song or something that just totally ruins the video even more.

and the majority of the songs posted in here are exactly the type of song that will blow the video.
