I am going to get an MP3 player in a few days for my workouts. What are your favorite songs to get jacked to? The first song on mine will be "Let the Bodies Hit the Floor" by Drowning Pool.

I've always had an adversion to music while lifting. To me, music is for the pumper toner set down at the fern and chrome gym. I just can't imagine Hackenschmidt, Anderson, Saxon, Grimek, Kono, Dimas, Coan, Rezazadeh etc. worried about music so they could get a good workout in.

Of course, ymmv.

California Jack - yes, you did. Very old school.

I do like music when I am lifting. Anything heavy metal, as long as it's fast. Drowning Pool, Anthrax, Metallica, Pantera, Slayer. At home, I have an MP3 player, or just don't listen to anything. At 24 Hour, the closest choice is an FM rock station. The hats-backward, wifebeater-wearing kids keep putting it on Top 40 or rap, and we have to keep turning it back to music. :cool:

Prong is another good one. Chemical Brothers. Disturbed. Pantera. Rollins Band

I 2nd
Tool
Prodigy

I think the music you use is like whatever workout you do. It needs to be changed up and kick started.

"When the bullet hits the bone", "Another one bites the dust" "Radar Love" "The Eagle and the Hawk (John Denver)" Classic Rock & Roll songs like that.;+

Most people don't know that song. It is a great adrenaline song as well as Calypso.

For lifting I usually like clasic rock like Boston's "More Than A Feeling" or Bon Jovi "Livin' On A Prayer"

Of course, ymmv. The problem is that when you travel a lot, sometimes the fern and chrome gym is your only realistic choice. In that case, loud aggressive music on headphones is far better than listening the J.Lo or Britney and the murder of the guy doing curls in the squat rack that would surely follow.

And, as for music:
I'll second Rollins, specifically On My Way to the Cage, Illumination, and Your Number is One.
Black Flag
Bad Brains
Slayer
Tool
A Perfect Circle
Killswitch Engage

When you're lifting heavy metal, you should be listening to heavy metal. 'Nuff said!

The heavier the better.

Slipknot works well. The best "get-juiced" CD for me has to be Perseverance by Hatebreed.

AC-DC, Metallica, Rancid, Led Zeppelin, Rage Against the Machine

I listen to very eclectic music during a workout. Loud, agressive music makes me vomit when I am training like I should. I find that Muddy Waters and Elmore James can walk me through a set of 20 rep squats quite well... but also I listen to a Christian Indie band from South Africa called The Benjamin Gate that have a song called "Lay It Down" - for some reason it goes really well with any painful, long, drawn-out set. It isn't aggressive, but very passionate and energetic.

I save the mean, loud, metal and hardcore stuff for triples and singles training, when I am working on a new 1 rep PR - when I say mean/loud metal, I am not talking about any of that nu-metal rap-metal vanilla pudding prison-girlfriend of metal. I am talking more of the deeper underground bands like Nodes of Ranvier, Seventh Star, Dodgin Bullets, and No Innocent Victim. I also like old streetpunk/hard rock, like The Business, CockSParrer, AC/DC, Motorhead, AntiHeros, and The Templars.

I don't really need music to "pump me up"... but my workout playlist on my Zune, consists of a lot of AC/DC, Aerosmith, Metallica, Guns and Roses, Motley Crue, etc.. however there's still some Country, Rap, etc.. on the playlist that I like.

I spend almost every waking minute listening to music, so naturally I listen to music while I'm lifting.

It runs the gamut. Anything from prewar and postwar Delta blues to death and black metal to gangster rap to punk to southern rock.

Dunno what I'll listen to tonight when I go.

It sure does help to block out the top-40 dance garbage that gets piped into my stupid gym.
