Hey everyone! 
What are your top 10 tracks (or less, or more?) that REALLY get you going during a workout? 
The kind that you just have to stop and close your eyes for a second because you can feel your body tensing up and getting ready to LIFT BIG TO GET BIG! 

Mine are:

Audioslave - Cochise
Audioslave - Exploder
Audioslave - Show Me How to Live
Blue Stahli - ULTRAnumb
Disturbed - Voices
KoRN - Twisted Transistor
Rush - Driven (Live in Rio)
Slipknot - Wait and Bleed 
Symphony X - Domination
Velvet Revolver - Slither

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:

Amon Amarth
Rammstein
Pantera
Slayer
Sepultura
Kalmah
Children of Bodom
Dimmu Borgir
Cannibal Corpse

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.

If you're into rock music, try Skillet,Buckcherry, ACDC, or The pretty reckless. Her sty;e varies and can get you in the mood for any workout. :)

I am going to be that guy. I used to listen to music until I really got into Olympic lifts (snatch and clean and jerk) which require a lot of timing and balance. Having headphones in really distracted from my breathing and technique. No joke, with headphones Max clean was 215 without 245... With that said, when I ised to warm up before pitching in college I would listen to music that made me angry, I mean teeth grinding, psycho eyes angry. 

Till i collapse - eminem
toxicity- system of a down

shit like that.

It definitely varies from session to session. But since I love Eminem, I have to go with his hard hitting songs like: Forget about Dre, Infinite, Square Dance, Old Time Sake, Rabbit Run, Say What You Say, Soldier and of course Till I Collapse. Honestly, I can just list his entire discography. Like I said before, it depends on the day. Some day I lift to classical piano music. Moonlight Sonata to start it off.

Olympic lifting requires 100% concentration, due to the amount of technique involved in the lifts. Same thing with powerlifting, but to a slightly lesser degree. Music doesn't seem to bother bodybuilders, because poundage, leverage, and 1 rep max isn't their primary concern.
