I need some good pump up songs for when I workout...Any suggestions? I love to listen to alternative and hard rock: Seether, Korn, So They Say, Disturbed, for example?

What songs pump you up and you can listen to on repeat while working out? You know, those songs that never get old because they just keep you going through your workout routine.

Try some Audioslave, Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and maybe some Muse.

What about classic rock, though?

Extreme’s second album pornograffitti :)


But really, funk-metal. Lots of sKWEEEEls and pounding riffs.

Got any Pantera? I start out any workout CD with This Love off the Vulgar Display of Power album, because it starts all slow and then builds, just like a workout. You can never go wrong with Back in Black…any song off that album, or hell, any song by AC/DC can pump you up and keep you going. Seether is good in my opinion because they sound a lot like Nirvana, some of the heavier Nirvana would be a great choice. I can’t say enough good thing about a Canadian 3 piece hard rock band called Danko Jones, check out this video, or this one, which isn’t really a video, but a montage someone set to one of their songs. I could work out to that all day. If you like what you hear, get your hands on a copy of their 2005 album “We Sweat Blood”. If you want to go a little more old school metal, pop in Megadeth’s “Rust in Peace” or “Symphony of Destruction” albums. You can’t go wrong with the White Stripes in my opinion. If you like a little more punk in your rock, Bad Religion is the way to go. If you like your metal a little darker, pop in some Sabbath. If you like high energy and unrelenting, pop in an album by the Hives. I’d highly recommend Anthrax’s “Sound of White Noise”, their first album after losing the original lead singer and replacing him with the lead singer from Armored Saint. Go back a few years and grab Coal Chamber’s first (self-titled) album, that will do it for you. I think you’d probably like Sevendust. If you want the kind of good time hard rock that was made in the 80s, but with a little modern flavor, and dig female metal bands, I can’t say enough nice things about the Donnas 2007 album “Bitchin’” If you like female metal but are looking for something a little heavier, try Kittie or Drain S.T.H. If you dig the bass, pick up a Helmet album, I’ll suggest “Meantime”. If you like a little more progressive metal, pop on some Tool. If you like a little more funk in your metal, go with Faith No More, Suicidal Tendencies or Infectious Grooves. Stoner metal…pick up The Sword, or some Queens of the Stone Age (or Kyuss if you can find it). And of course, you can’t go wrong with Slipknot.

all great suggestions…i don’t really care for classic rock in my workout because i listen to it all the time, half the time stoned so it doesn’t really set the mood for a workout haha. A lot of new bands mentioned here. I’ll have to look into them. Thanks for the word!

I’m looking for certain songs that you guys like from the mid to late 90s. I like Offspring for a few songs, Sevendust, Staind, Cake, etc. that kind of genre. A little more mainstream rock from that era. I remember Kittie haha, not bad not bad. Any ideas for particular songs?

mass_pike4's avatar

for you guys, I’d suggest Buckethead’s “Soothsayer.” Pure greatness

The Melvins

@quasi – though the Melvins are fantastic, revolutionary, indescribably unbelievable, I think they might be a little sludgy to work out to.
