Workout Hype


I am who I am.
Apr 17, 2009
Question, question, question! :D What are your favorite songs to work out to? Do you have a particular playlist for it? If so could/would you share it with us/me? I'm just looking for some new stuff to hype me up when I'm sweating it out. :wink:

Eminem, the inspirational ones
Rocky Soundtracks
Bon Jovi
some 80's songs.
It's the eye of the tiger, it's the cream of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he's watchin' us all in the eye of the tiger

I listen to heavy classical music, techno, strong rock, heavy rap, and guitar solos. In that order.
I can't take most rap during a workout. It tends to be too laidback, or racist, or narcissistic bling bilng crap. Eminem is pretty much the only one I can take, and then, only about 5 of his songs.

I can take Heavy Classical, Techno, Inspirational Music, Classic Rock
Fort Minor, Jurassic Five, Heiruspecs, and Styles of Beyond all have some good workout music. I don't care if it's laid back as long as I feel the energy. Which is why I like Classical and Techno. I'm liable not to even listen to the words anyway. I'm going to listen to the sounds and get the energy off the base, have the drum kicking my heart into high speed, that guitar shedding my blood. The piano ripping my thoughts apart. I find this is the best way to concentrate/think and work out at the same time.

Black Crowes - Go Faster
Van Halen - Jump

Anything upbeat and rockin' works for me
Zwara, Komit and Conquistador II by Juno Reactor.

I run to the beat of the music and the beats are coming fast. I like to play Komit as my finisher for my 10 mile runs. It contains a slow spacey twilight calm into a relentless violent tone, at this time I would be using up whatever gas I had left in a full sprint.
I have an entire play-list dedicated to working out.

This is a straight copy and paste, so it might be a bit messy. If you happen to recognise some of the more obscure band names here, do let me know. :)

Sweet... by the way. VNV Nation?! Nice. :D
Honestly mostly 3rd eye blind and Hip Hop.
Fake Problems
Guns N' Roses
I Set My Friends On Fire
Billy Talent
LCD Soundsystem
Mando Diao
Mindless Self Indulgence
Puddle Of Mudd
Bloc Party

Most of that is metal and punk.
I definitely had to download a few tunes that are out of my element once I realized my usual music wasn't really getting me jazzed. These are a few that I've found that are pretttty high tempo/inspiring (right term?!) but I usually switch my playlist up every second week so I don't lose that desired effect.

Spirit in the Sky - Norman Greenbaum
Take Your Mama Out - Scissor Sisters
Piece of Me - Britney Spears
9-5 - Dolly Parton
Black Betty - !!!Spiderbait (This version specifically.)
Hit the Road Jack - Ray Charles
Play that Funky Music - Wild Cherry
Bucky Done Gun - MIA
Electric Feel (Justice Remix) - MGMT
Anthem for the Year 2000 - Silverchair
the Rulers Back - Jay-Z

I like a lot of that music Slant, I'm going to have to scour my music now.

And Third Eye Blind to work out? really. I mean I love them.. but they put me at ease, not pump me up.
"Play that funky music - Wild Cherry"

Weapon of Choice- Fatboy Slim
Clubbed to Death- Rob D
Highway to Hell- ACDC
A Little Less Conversation- (JXL Remix) Elvis Presley
Massive Attack- Angel
Bodin Movin'- (Fat Boy Slim Remix) Beastie Boys
Block Rockin Beats- Chemical Brothers

I exercise with Dance Dance Revolution so my exercise kind of supplies its own sound track. Convenient, that.

I don't "work out" but I do ski. This is some stuff I like to listen to when I ski:

Perfume Tree - Flooded
Basement Jaxx - Oh My Gosh
Lycia - Wide Open Spaces
Seefeel - More Like Space
UNKLE - Eye for an Eye
Bowery Electric - Slow Thrills
Faithless - We Come 1
Hooverphonic - Out of Tune
James Hardway - See Through Me
Justice - Genesis
Leila - Mollie
Misstrip - A Ticket to Death

Too lazy to add links to the songs. All of it has a "cold" feel, as the best way I can describe it. Alot of dnb, dance, and or shoegaze ambient spacey stuff.
I don't listen to anything in particular; just basically anything that's really heavy and crushing (mostly various forms of death metal: old school, brutal, technical, death/doom, death/thrash), like....

Defeated Sanity
The Amenta
Decrepit Birth
Severe Torture
Fleshgod Apocalypse
Abominable Putridity
Severed Savior
Dead Congregation
Criminal Element
Human Mincer
Sentenced (only Shadows of the Past)
Detonation (Holland)
Hour of Penance
Novembers Doom
early Entombed
early Grave
early Carcass
Cannibal Corpse
Swallow the Sun
Kronos (France)

and some other random stuff...

The Ocean
Benea Reach
The Esoteric
High on Fire
Ion Dissonance
Pig Destroyer/Rotten Sound/Terrorizer/Nasum/Napalm Death/other random grindcore bands

I doubt this list will be helpful to anyone, but I'm bored so...whatever.
