    Default Music to excersize to

    Ok, so I'm going through my mp3 player, and have come to the realization that I need to expand my collection of songs to listen to during my workout.

    Currently I have a bunch of linkin park stuff, some drop kick murphys, a guns and roses song or two, some nickleback, and some other random songs. oh, and I have crazy bitch by buckcherry because it reminds me sooo much of my ex

    I'm looking for mostly rock stuff, fast paced, and good music. basically stuff with a good beat that i can blast into my ear and tune out everything else.

    any idea? and if you have specific songs in mind, please post title and author.

    Not [really] a good idea to blast anything into your ears. Obviously you are young and indestructible, but Tinnitus [ringing in the ears] is irreversable...caused by various things, one being loud noises, along with certain [Benzine] chemicals. I think this is the main reason for the fuss concerning the "Q's" being mounted low, and those [goofy] "headsets" worn today...isn't it?

    I have suffered from Tinnitus for many years...with no relief available whatsoever. PROTECT YOUR HEARING AT ALL COST!

    Metallica, Godsmack, Disturbed, System of a Down, and Ministry are in my iPod

    Godsmack - The Enemy is my favorite to really bang out a good set.

    Indestructible, the new album by Disturbed has fueled some sick workouts lately. I also like Sevendust's latest album, Alpha( check out deathstar, beg to differ, and alpha). On www.rosstraining.com Ross used the song indestructible for his compilation video. Youtube has it too.

    Check with your local health club where they teach group classes. The instructor should be able to give you the names of companies thast produce mixed music so that you have it w/o any dead air and all at the same beat.

    Hey Dan, I think it comes down to what kind of music YOU like.

    For me, when I'm out for my walk or riding the stationary bike, it will depend on my mood at the time and how fast I want to go - I could listen to Led Zep, Metallica, U2, the Stones, a few of my favourite Sarah McLaughlin songs, Eric Burdon and the Animals, retro and oldies like Love Shack, Lust for Life (Iggy Pop), The Wanderer , Life is Life, The Twist, Twist and Shout, Shout, couple from Long John Baldry, Outside (Staind w/Fred Durst version), Spirit of the West, INXS, couple of favs from Midnight Oil, Joe Cocker, Tragically Hip, Nickleback etc etc etc. I wish I had some Rush on my MP3 Player, but I only have .... cassettes

    It also depends on what part of my work-out I'm at ... some songs make me pedal my little heart out on the bike so I put those types of songs on when I need to ramp it up and then slower songs when its time to "cool down". Imagine how long the live acoustic version of Kashmir is! I can get lost in the music and pedal pedal pedal!!!! Misty Mountain Hop, Dancing Days, Fool in the Rain, Dazed & Confused are other Led Zep tunes that always get me going hard. I usually don't make it as far down the playlist to When the Levee Breaks. hehe

    I go with what music will get me up and moving, or belting out the lyrics at the top of my lungs to my favs. Except when I'm out walking, then it's not quite the top of my lungs

    You guys all listen to some hard *****, man.

    You heard of Disciple? They got some great songs. "Game On" is my favorite. Personally I kinda like some hip-hop when I'm working out everyonce in awhile. It's got a great beat to follow along with and it's just fun stuff. Lil Jon, Eminem, Kanye West, etc...
    As far as more 'rock', Green Day is tight... I listen to alot of christian rock like Pillar, Skillet, Anberlin, TobyMac, Audio Adrenaline...
    Hope that helps...

    Thanks for the link. Some great tunes and some new stuff I wnat to check out.
    Check out pandora radio. Put in a song or artist you like and it starts spitting out songs that go with the type of music you requested. It's free and it has exposed me to some bands I'd never heard of:
