Certainly, there's no good or bad music for trading and most likely it depends on what every trader prefers, but thinking from the point of view of distraction and concentration... I would say that listening to music while trading is not probably not a good idea all around.
A good song with likely attract your attention, move your thoughts from the markets to anything that makes you like that song.
I definitely like to listen to music, but I do it after trading. I usually go for a walk or jogging, listening to music while I do that.
It removes the stress, and gets my body in better shape after a long day on a chair in front of a computer.

(From Aesop's Fables) The Hare was once boasting of his speed before the other animals. "I have never yet been beaten," said he, "when I put forth my full speed. I challenge any one here to race with me." The Tortoise said quietly, "I accept your challenge." "That is a good joke," said the Hare; "I could dance round you all the way." "Keep your boasting till you've won," answered the Tortoise. "Shall we race?" So a course was fixed and a start was made. The Hare darted almost out of sight at once, but soon stopped and, to show his contempt for the Tortoise, lay down to have a nap. The Tortoise plodded on and plodded on, and when the Hare awoke from his nap, he saw the Tortoise just near the winning-post and could not run up in time to save the race. Then the Tortoise said: "Slow but steady progress wins the race."
