Workout Music Recommendation

There is a compilation series on iTunes which is the best workout music I’ve found around recently… it’s called “Euro Club Hits” and there are currently 5 volumes… here is the link, check it out:

It’s also on the new download service at www.amazon.com

Let me know what u think!

I stopped reading when I hit Euro+Club. I’m a hard rock type person.

Megadeath
Soil
etc

Check out the Flobots, Denver based rap group. Hits include Handlebars, Stand Up, Rise…

Sounds kind of like Cake but with a better message. Upbeat and gets you going. Its new stuff check it out!

Most definitely! I have some quality Anthrax, Megadeath, Skid Row and Motley Crue mixed in with Rage and other hard rock. Nothing gets me going like some hard-driving heavy stuff.

Wolves In The Throne Room
Amon Amarth
Dimmu Borgir (specifically, their album “In Sorte Diaboli”)
Goatwhore
Anterior
WarBringer
Nile
As I Lay Dying
Darkest Hour

And remember: Slipknot, Korn and Nickelback ARE NOT HARD METAL!

But you are still a douchebag.

Rage Against the Machine goes without saying.
Black Sabbath, Black Flag, Henry Rollins, Slayer, and other obvious classics.

High On Fire is like Motorhead but darker. Probably some of the best music I’ve discovered this year, even though they’re not completely new.

Mobb Deep has some pretty good tunes and may not be in your rap collection. So does Atmosphere. But not all of it is worthy of listening to for Squats.

Twista’s song “Kill Us All” and Lil’ John’s “Throw it Up” are perfect for heavy sets if you just turn your brain off and crank your balls into overdrive.

Nine Inch Nails has plenty of angry, artistically arranged tracks. You know that song from 300 with all the drums and Guitars? It’s on the Fragile from 1999.

Powerman 5000 and anything Rob Zombie involves himself in often turns out to be deliciously absurd and over-the-top industrial-electro-pop-metal. Ministry does it better but they both do it well.

Many music geeks thumb their noses at Ramstein because they’re not of the Ultra-Heavy Doom genera and because they’re lead singer doesn’t scream in a fake, raspy voice. Whatever: these guys wear flamethrower face masks on stage. They rock hard and that’s all there is to it.

I’ve gotta say I was glad to see that Saul William’s song “List of Demands” off his first album made it on the Nike Sparq commercial.
The only thing that could have made that commercial about training for speed, power, and quickness more bad-ass would have been if they actually had footage of some people lifting weights. You can’t condition musucles to be explosive with Med-Ball Drills, Psychometrics, and Sprints if you have no muscle to speak of.

Tsjuder is probably the heaviest thing I have on my Ipod right now. I can’t really take it seriously so I save it for when I’m doing arms or calves or something that doesn’t require all of my cunning and rage. But if you’re into Ultra-Heavy Doom Metal, they’ll fit the bill.

dude theres one of these threads every damn week.

Euro Club Hits? What the fuck man, does your workout consist of Pilates or all nude gay male yoga?

Here’s some music to straighten you out:

Mastodon - Deep Sea Creature

Sepultura - Refuse/Resist

Sepultura - Biotech is Godzilla

Dimmu Borgir - The Serpentine Offering

Dethklok - Better Metal Snake

Children of Bodom - Needled 24/7

Corrosion of Conformity - Diablo Blvd.

Pantera - Cowboys From Hell

Slayer - Killing Fields

The Union Underground - South Texas Death Ride

Viking Skull - Skull Heaven

White Zombie - Astrocreep

Repeat every training session until you get yourself a clue.

And, and for the record, no Euro Club mix is complete without Gunther and the Sunshine Girls.

Those “idiots” would be BillBoard top 40 free radio channels.

Any person that calls themselves “free-thinking” in terms of musical taste wouldn’t be caught dead listening to “BillBoard radio” in their car.

hardstyle

hardcore, high energy, nuff said. its the shit you snort a line off a girls ass and then fuck her & her best friend (or another random girl) to.

Why do a lot of people give shit to the people who like techno, house, etc.? That is just the music they like. I can easily just start talking shit about metal, but I won’t because that is the music some people they like. Although I don’t, oh well. You listen to what you want.

But people who listen to metal don’t break out in a dance out of nowhere, suck on pacifiers, or hold hands.

Can the mods combine all of the “workout music” threads into one?
