I'm on my school's wrestling team and I have the potential to go far, but before a match, I get really nervous and feel like I'm under a microscope. I get all scared and intimidated and I can't be my overly dominant self like I am in practice. If I listen to music that gets me pumped before a match, I somewhat come out of my negative mindset and and do very well.

But.

All the songs I used to listen to aren't doing the job anymore. They are either very cliche or I overplay them.

That's where you come in. I need you to give me songs and artists that you think will do it for me.

I like upbeat, and powerful songs that are good for getting pumped up.

I like pretty much any kind of rock that is not in any way, shape, or form affiliated with rap or like music. I like softer metal, but not the Lamb of God, satan-is-doing the vocals metal. I like lots of revival, such as Wolfmother and Jet. I don't care if it's 60's,70's,80's, grunge, hard rock, nu-metal, or MTV Mainstream; or anything in between. If it fits my musical taste, I'll probably like it. I also love songs like More Than a Feeling by Boston and Any Way You Want It by Journey that are strong and powerful, if you know what I mean. Base your suggestions off the examples listed below:

This is pretty much what I listen to:

AC/DC
Aerosmith
Avenged Sevenfold
Bachman-Turner Overdrive
Bon Jovi
Boston
Def Leppard
Disturbed
Godsmack
Grand Funk Railroad
Journey
Korn
The Kinks
The Knack
Led Zeppelin
Lynard Skynard
Nirvana
Peter Frampton
Pink Floyd
The Arctic Monkeys
The Raconteurs
The Red Hot Chili Peppers
Rise Against
Something Corporate
Static-X
Taking Back Sunday
Trapt
Wolfmother

I also like a lot of grunge stuff, but I havent downloaded any yet and I don't feel like thinking of the band names right now...i'm talkin the Tool, Primus, Nirvana stuff...

As you can tell, I need some new music pretty bad.

Hey man, wrestling is not gay. I beat the kid who one states. Wrestling is sure straighter than having "Gummy Balls" as a username and having a bannre that says "lick me."

Despite having a terrible, judgmental and ignorant attitude towards other genre's, you don't even have the fucking courtesy to thank me for making that list. I'll have you know that it took me some time, and the knowledge that you clearly didn't read the whole fucking list saddens me, as it's not entirely made of rap.

Next time you make a thread, be thankful for the responses you get, you cunt.

thats exactly who i was gonna recommend.

Try some Pantera or Slayer if you want some heavy stuff without extreme vocals. Or maybe Man In The Box by Alice In Chains.
I was bad with usernames at age 12. Ah woe.

you don't even know what the guy on top is doing; you just assume its gay. He just got 2 points for a takedown and now he has in a power-half nelson. He's covering up his opponents hips so he can't escape or get a reversal. He's going to take the half, run it around his head, release his left arm, and by now he should have his opponent on his back and getting backpoints. He will grab his opponents other arm to keep him from getting up and lift his head so that his shoulder blades are more visible to the official (if your shoulder blades are on the ground, your pinned.)

pshh wrestling is gay...you dont even understand it but you criticize it

thats not even wrestling lol, idk what the hell that is and i've never seen it before. and for the first picture, I'd like to see you on the bottom and get put in that move he's doing and see how painful it is. I can guarantee you won't think it's "gay" anymore.
