I tried classical music, Enigma, Sounds of Nature
What really helps me focus and tune out everything but the problem at hand:
Iron Maiden, Megadeath, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Opeth, Rob Zombie

Its the beat. You'll find the same with most of Ellie Goulding's songs. She's a avid runner, so all her songs have a very fast rythm that you can run to.

Out of that lot, I only have Opeth on my "at work" playlist.

But they deserve their place. If that's Death Metal, count me in.

I should also mention - late afternoons, when the office is clearing and I'm sorting out some stuff - Cafe Del Mar also works. But only then.
