Music that pumps you up.

I've been looking hard for truly motivational music. One of my friends who is huge into music said about a tape he has but wont listen to. Apparently if you have a psychotic thought then listen to it it'll make you do what you are thinking. Not sure how much I believe it but meh. Besides, that's not what I am looking for.

I find that Pantera is great to lift to, VULGAR DISPLAY OF POWAH! I like a lot of 70s rock and moreso the newer rock. System of a Down and Rage Against the Machine do it for me.

Any good suggestions or anything you all like?

i find that the beat helps most, more than the music itself. an upbeat tempo helps me keep pace, especially with cardio. while lifting, i'm mostly indifferent to the music since i'm focusing more on the lift itself.

Great stuff frigginwizard. Disturbed, Deftones, Slipknot all good. I'll look it up later but what does N.E.R.D sound like? I've also thought about getting a Taking Back Sunday cd, but haven't yet.

hmmm.... Let me see. Music that really get's me going in the gym??

Here's my top 3....

-Britney (especially womaniser)

These get me going in a way that I seriously contemplate launching an O bar at the reception area in the hope that i'll wipe out the person responsible for playing it.

My prefered music is some what different. I'm sort of old before my time. I love 60's/70's rock for training though. When the Ipod is on it will be playlist made up any of the following,

-Jimi Hendrix
-The Doors
-The Rolling Stones
-Led Zeppelin

I'm a big Blues fan, too, and some Blues Rock numbers will get tossed in their. I've also found that listening to Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker motivates me, but you kind of need to be a fan (well, think - the film, Casino's Soundtrack). It's not quite 'my mother didn't love me' but music like that just seems to focus my attention.

I generally don't train with my IPod in, though. I've developed the ability to block out a busy commercial gym, and the crap music to the extent that I barely notice anything...

KPj, I understand what you mean! Pink is so awesome to work out to! j/k

My gym plays the sad puppy song that Sarah Mclachlen does and it really GETS ME PUMPED...

Classic rock is always good, lately I've been getting into the Kinks something fierce. Need to go buy some cds!

I know a lot of people dislike them, but anything by godsmack generally gets me going. And someone mentioned rage. Try Rammstein as well. That's if you want some heavy, while at the same time catchy, stuff. They're not real heavy metal but as someone mentioned, the commericalized heavy stuff usually has the beat to go with it.

My last gym had a station called KISS FM on 24/7, which played the same five stupid RnB songs on rotation. If I ever have to hear about that guy wanting to "make love in the club" again I'll go batshit insane.

White Stripes, AC/DC, RATM all good. Faith No More, Stiff Little Fingers, Modest Mouse, Kings of Leon also good. I tend to tune out completely though when I'm actually lifting.
