What should I add to my running playlist?

Asked by nikipedia (27504points) May 30th, 2010

All right, I know this question has been asked before, but I think since the answers change with time, it’s okay if I ask it again? (But, lovely mods, feel free to correct me.)

I am heading out on my first double-digit mile run today. (There, I said it, so I can’t back out!) I expect this will take me close to two hours, and my running playlist is just a little too short. Any suggestions of things to add? Right now I have a bizarro mix of that includes the poppiest of pop music (Madonna, Rihanna, Lady Gaga) to country (Brooks & Dunn) to standard white girl music (Guster, TV on the Radio). So I’m open to pretty much anything.

The Run Lola Run soundtrack is pretty good and would make a decent running tempo.

“A Beautiful Mind” So They Say…you can’t go wrong, trust me. Amazing intro for the first two minutes. Great pump up song, check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqZRUJ2Idqo

What you want is angry music which will keep your adrenaline pumping. Anything by Crass, Oi Polloi, Black Flag, Melvins, Dropkick Murphys, Dead Kennedys, or Exploited should work.

You left out the Ramones, the Butthole Surfers, the Sex Pistols, and the Mighty Mighty Boss-Tones.

Run by Gnarls Barkley. Pretty good tempo, actually, for straightaways.

Slayer. The first 5 albums with Christ Illusion and World Painted Blood. Sodom’s Agent Orange is also another good choice. Fast, angry, brutal and Teutonic.
