The Rogue Bard has a few nice songs that fit well with playing roguelikes.

http://roguebard.eptalys.net/#

I also second the original Doom soundtrack for games other than doomrl.

The main theme and dungeon songs for Mordor Depths of Dejenol is also nice as well as a few others like the Theme to Puppet Master and and this awesome instrumental cover of W.A.S.P.'s Animal (I F*ck Like A Beast):http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWL2FbqPxtc&feature=related

Some of those 8-bit remixes and midi versions of metal songs also work well.

The hard to fid Wizardry soundtracks are ok too. Some tracks are hit and miss though.

I can't play video games without music.

If the game has music itself and it isn't incredibly bad I usually listen to the game's music. If the game has no music itself I just put in my favorite music CDs.

I'm thinking of listening to "Crazy" from MadWorld when playing NetHack. Its first verse and its chorus fits NetHack quite well, in my opinion:

See the day turn into night.
See the blackness, where's the white?
Through the darkness there's the light.
Full moon, you're consumed, now you're terrified.
Hear the cries from the castle,
Cold stones ache and the moans start to grab you.
You can feel ‘em shake, you can feel ‘em bash you.
Bones start to break and your heart starts to craaaaaaaaaaaaash.
Will it be your last breath?
Will it be your last move?
Will it be your last step? (Step)
Don't step too close.
Or else it’s gonna make a mess when your chest explodes

Yea don't the full moon make you go Crazy? (crazy crazy crazy)
Caught up in a maze, dark and twisted,
Let's see who the craziest is!

I have started a playlist for roguelike music if anyone is interested  https://soundcloud.com/groups/music-for-roguelikes or else The Cure albums 'faith', and '17 seconds' are good. Also Vangelis album 'El Greco'

I like listening to Megaman themes or Cave Story themes. Sometimes I pull up DF and listen to the main theme while playing other RLs
Also goes by the name of "NANOsoldierEnke"
Ever notice how nobody can read anyone else's handwriting? That probably means that the Bill of Rights is a detailed order for party supplies, there is no mention of any Congress, and the president's only duty is "to blow the horn of cheese". I think that.

I like to listen to video game music when playing roguelikes. For instance, I like this radio station (old-school game music): http://www.kohina.com/

There's a lot of Vangelis on Ultima Thule, and IMHO it goes well with roguelikes.  http://ultimathule.info/
