Is there some music that is better than others when you're testing speakers? If there is, what is it and why would you consider it better?

The best way to test speakers is with test equipment that uses a test signal. Some test signals are sequences that sound like noise, some are actual noise and some are sine waves and swept sines.

But I think you're looking for an informal "seat of your pants" test. In that case, use material you are familiar with so you already know what to expect.
