    Saw this article on Fark.com and it is absolute fail as far as I'm concerned (as did the Fark people). It is Spike.com's list of top 11 songs to pump iron too. Only ones I really agree on are #2 and #1. What would be on your list?


    My List:
    Ace of Spades - Motorhead
    You're the Best Around - Joe Espisito (Karate Kid theme)
    Immigrant Song - Led Zeppelin
    The Touch - Stan Bush
    Push It To The Limit
    Gonna Fly Now & Eye of the Tiger
    Hunger - Specter General
    Instruments of Destruction - NRG
    Dare - Stan Bush
    Holding out for a Hero - Bonnie Tyler
    Way of the Warrior - Hammerfall
    Sweep The Leg - No More Kings
    2 Minutes to Midnight - Iron Maiden
    Black Betty - Ram Jam
    Welcome to the Jungle - GnR
    Take a Trip (Heavy Metal)
    Heavy Metal - Sammy Hagar
    Real American - Rick Derringer (Hulk Hogan Theme)
    Final Countdown
    Hungry Like the Wolf & Rio - Duran Duran
    Top Gun Theme
    I wanna Rock - Twisted Sister
    Wheel in the Sky - Journey
    Tom Sawyer - Rush
    Pretty Handsome Awkward - The Used (Barricade/Bumblebee chase)
    Barracuda - Heart

    I listen to podcasts when I work out, Dan Carlin's Hardcore History and Common Sense, and Dan Savage's Savage Lovecast.

    I'd listen to mostly 80s music, TF soundtracks, and Linkin Park.

    There, I said it.

    John Tardy always sounded like he was trying to lift something heavy anyway

    I don't work out per se, but I do run in place for 20 minutes with Wii Fit while listening to wrestling themes or the TF movie soundtrack. Beat it by Michael Jackson is also excellent for that.

    I don't have a playlist but when I go for my walk I use softer music for the first 30 min to warm up and wind down from work. The second 30 shifts to heavy selections and a faster walking pace.

    Well it doesn't have to be what you work out to, just what would be on your list. Basically the list that Spike.com provides is kinda lacking. Just coming up with better ones. The songs I listed are songs I like to listen to while driving.. It is just they make good work out music as well...

    You under estimate my rage. You think I would have downloaded or just YouTube'd those episodes by now.
