When training jiu-jitsu there are a lot of factors that can make a training session bad or good.  For me, aside from having a good training partner who has their hygiene game on point, the choice of music is one of the most important choices to make.  In general I like to avoid aggressive music that will get you too amped up.  After all, engaging in an activity where strangulation and joint locks are standard, additional aggression is not necessary.  So save those Pantera and Jackyl tracks for when you're trying to hit a PR on your deadlift or bench.  

Personally I like instrumentals, or at least music that is heavy on words.  For me lyrics can be distracting.  When fighting for my life I like to give that particular activity my full attention.  Electronica, Jazz, Synth Pop, etc. are all good choices.  You can just kind of get lost in a state of trance and roll without thinking too much.  Here is my list from Spotify, feel free to agree or disagree with my selections.  For those of you still listening to cassettes here's the list.  Happy Rolling.
