Special honors to the song that, for some reason, always shows up to every gym I've been to:
Taylor Swift - Trouble!
I was originally going to post my entire Playlist, but all of them have at least 70+ songs, and that'd be nuts. And format unfriendly. =P
Might make a cardio one, too, because the two playlists are so different.

Back in my boxing days this band was on my playlist when I did a lift/cardio/bag workout...
These days I just listen to a Pandora shuffle.

I am more of an R&B/rap/hip-hop kind of guy but for the life me there is no way I can ever seem to get motivated to lift listening to R&B/rap/hip-hop. Below is a list of groups I've complied for my lifting playlist based on recommendations and sampling different styles:
Children of Bodom

My iTunes is kind of a hot mess of songs I love and a whole lot of "please don't judge me". I have a few hundred songs and I don't have a set play list, but I tend to go for a beat. That helps motivate me, or at least keeps me moving
"Yes, I've been known to get in the zone, forget where I'm at... and shake my butt a little":)))
Ab time, I tend to go with a slower grove.

Nice! I did kickboxing for years, but my jab and cross are way meaner than my kicks ;-)
We listened to a lot of metal at the gym. It helped pump everyone up!

Anything Rock, and more on the harder/heavier side. Black music, whether old school, or this current Rap/Hip Hop stuff, isn't aggressive or energetic enough. Danceability doesn't apply in a hardcore gym environment, IMO.

I prefer "To Alpha Sector" by Michael Angelo Batio for some rhythmic fucking music.
