Hey UG,
When I work out I like to listen to music and there is just some songs which just give me the illusion of a performance boost.
For example I listen to Metallica's "Fuel" when I go running because the song simply make want to run like hell.
So anyone know any good songs for running or perhaps the weight room?
I want to beeee with you
and make belieeeve with you
and live in harmony, harmony, oh love!

Personally, I listen to SHITLOADs of Black Mages when I'm down the gym.

Some good amped up drum n bass works pretty well for me.

Also what this guy above me said. Black Mages battle themes are epic as.

Basically anything with a fast beat should get you moving quicker.

Oh my God.


But yeah, seriously, I listen to a lot of Death Metal, Melodic Death Metal and occasionally Deathcore when running and working out. Behemoth, Bloodbath, Hypocrisy, The Black Dahlia Murder, Enfold Darkness, All Shall Perish, Zonaria, etc.

try and go for something that is in time with your reps, this way you will not lose count or rhythm on your reps.

for this, i listen to something with a good drum beat or rhythm guitar line. try no one knows by queens of the stone age.

Lots of thrash. Sodom, Megadeth, Rigor Mortis, Kreator, Coroner, Sadus, and Exodus are good places to start.
The Burn My Eyes album by Machine Head. My performance is like 100% better when Davidian and Old come on.
No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable

Well, I'm a runner myself and have also experienced with music + running, but for me it isn't really a good combination because when you hear a really adrenaline-pumped song you start to run faster and sooner or later reality will catch up on you and your energy will be drained quite fast. Anyways here's a few good "running songs":

Eye of the Tiger - Survivor !
2 Minutes to Midnight - Iron Maiden
(Ace of Spades - Motörhead)
All Nightmare Long - Metallica !
Attero Dominatus - Sabaton !
Primo Victoria - Sabaton
Break Stuff - Limp Bizkit
Breaking the Law - Judas Priest
Burn it to the Ground - Nickelback
Carry On My Wayward Son - Kansas
Die MF Die - Dope
Flirtin' With Disaster - Georgia Steamroller
Hand of Blood - BFMV
Highway Star - Deep Purple
Holy Diver - Dio
I Hope You Die - Bloodhound Gang
Crimson Tide/Deep Blue Sea - Nightwish !
Johnny B. Goode - Chuck Berry (might just be me, but this one rocks for running )
Kickstart My Heart - Mötley Crue
Killing Time - Doom Unit
No One Knows - Queens of the Stone Age
Red Flag Billy Talent
Run to the Hills - Iron Maiden
Runaway - Bon Jovi
Scream Aim Fire - BFMV
Smooth Criminal - Alien Ant Farm
Sound of Madness - Shinedown
Speed King - Deep Purple
Staring at the Sun - The Offspring
Warriors - Freedom Call
Die for Metal - Manowar !

Should keep you adrenaline-pumped for a while
Enter Shikari works very well for me.

Yeah try and find stuff with a strong, driving bass and a tempo that matches your running/rep speed. Drum and bass is often good to look into because the sounds are really... energising? I dunno, but you know what I mean

Machine Head and Pantera gets me pretty pumped when I work out.

Also this song is probably my favourite working out song atm:
Megadeth - Skin O' My Teeth, Rattlehead, Take No Prisoners
Mastodon - The Wolf Is Loose
Morbid Angel - Where The Slime Live, Dawn of the Angry
Metallica - No Remorse, Damage Inc., Holier Than Thou, Tracks 1, 3, 5-11 on Garage Inc. disc 2

I just went to the "M" section in my WMP and looked but you could also throw in some Judas Priest, they've got alot of good stuff for working out. Exciter, Turbo Lover (lol), Bloodstone, Ram It Down, and just about the whole Screaming For Vengeance album would be good.
I used to use Maiden, Pantera, Shadows Fall and In Flames for weights, followed by Dragonforce for cardio (I had the perfect setup for that, the songs were in alphabetical order, so in 20 minutes running I would start with operation ground and pound, move on to revolution deathsquad, and finish just before the really crappy repetitive solo in soldiers of the wasteland). I've recently found however that Joe Satriani is good for both (and is also good for doing work or relaxing with a book)

I used to use "Get your hands off of my woman" by the Darkness, after an unfortunate thing with an ex girlfriend. Now I use all sorts, rock etc. I like slow minor blues stuff. Moody music seems more powerful than something flat out aggressive.
