They say music calms the savage beast. Well it can also turn you into a savage beast with the right selection.
What is the right selection? Ah yes, that is the beauty of music. . . Everyone’s tastes are uniquely their own.
Favorite Workout Songs…
#1 “Name Of The Game”, The Crystal Method
I don’t care how many times I hear this song, it ALWAYS gets me going! My number one go-to song if I feel the training vibe slump.
#2 “The Hand That Feeds”, Nine Inch Nails
I’ve been a NIN fan since Pretty Hate Machine. Few can beat Trent Reznor for focusing anger and angst into music.
#3 “Lose Yourself”, Eminem
I know, I know. . . Cliche to put this one on the list, but I can’t think of a better song to make you want to rise up when everyone else thinks you’re the underdog.
#4 “Counting Bodies Like Sheep”, A Perfect Circle
31 Day Challenge Champ and overall BEAST Mike McNeill turned me on to this song. This is the song I crank when it’s time to move the heavy shit. Embedding was disabled, so if you want a listen click here.
#5 “Bring The Noise”, Public Enemy and Anthrax
One of the earliest Rap-Rock collaborations. And one of the best. Turn it up!
#6 “Bullet With Butterfly Wings”, Smashing Pumpkins
If you’ve ever felt like a rat in a cage, this song is for you. It also makes me think of an old girlfriend (in the good sort of way). 🙂

#7 “Remember The Name”, Fort Minor
“This is ten percent luck, twenty percent skill, 15 percent concentrated power of will. . .” If you know the rest of that line, you know this song will get you fired up. And if you don’t know the rest of that line, check it out:
