Naturally, I have it. Here.
It is kinda befitting.

Anything from the Amiga game 'Shadow of the Beast 2'. So atmospheric, and the rhythmic drums are very Dwarfish (it also reminds me of the Mines of Moria bit of LotR).

The music in the youtube clip is also in the game Lemmings.  I wonder what it's called originally.  

Coincidentally, the Lemmings version is much better quality and even more awesome.  I stuck it on Rapidshare if anyone wants it.

That reminds me, just about all the Lemmings music seems appropriate, seeing as I spent half my time just mining through the floor and into the "aquifer."
(*Ploosh!* "Blub blub" *splashing* "Blub blub!" *drown*)x100. That, and marching them into those big spinning bladey-things. Mmm, lemming confetti.

EDIT: Another thing; I really wish I could get ahold of the soundtrack to either Diablo game. The original DF music always reminded me of the Tristram theme.

Anything by High On Fire. Hell, one look at their album covers makes you think of Dorf Fortress.. I'm half way convinced that the singer is actually a filthy dwarf standing on stilts.

That's a nice one, Matt Uelmen does some good stuff. He also worked on the soundtrack of the Burning Crusade expansion for WoW, and you can really tell with some of the tracks.

One of his tracks I like the most is Fortress, although I don't know if it would go all that well with DF...

I'm currently playing the Cave Story soundtrack for Dwarf Fortress - a lot of it is really good.  Pity some of the tracks are so short, though.

The [classified] level music is pretty cool, too  ;).

Personally i prefer Basil Poledouris: Conan the Barbarian Soundtrack, just take a peek at song names:  Anvil of Crom, Riddle Of Steel, Mountain Of Power Procession, The Kitchen-The Orgy, etc.   :D
