4Gonna Fly Now (Theme from Rocky) - Bill Conti
Truly gigantic song and great motivator. It gives great energy boost and makes one pump harder.
If you don't think this deserves at least #2 of 3, go watch Rocky and listen for this song, and then say it doesn't motivate you.
Come on people, it's Rocky!

Yay Rammstein! Du Hast and Ich Will are both great songs to work out to.
