The Top Ten Best Workout Songs

1 Eye of the Tiger - Survivor

This one is one iconic song. This somehow reminds me of Katy Perry's roar. Anyone heard it? - Ambuj904

One of the best song I ever heard, really fantastic, running and parkour song. It must be in top of the list. I always listen this great song whenever I walk, run, gym and even breakfast time.

I wish my gym teacher would play this more on the speakers when we lift weights

During Basketball practice, they would play a bunch of modern pop, and I always waited for 30 minutes just for the one good song to come on. And oddly enough, I performed better when this song came on - SirSheep

2 Beat It - Michael Jackson

Best ot the best!

What, this isn't a very good workout song.

Agreed. Michael Jackson probably Beats it as much as he beats the kids. - AngusCash

I love the beat for this

I love this song!
This is my 2nd favorite Michael Jackson song and a great workout song. - Ajkloth

3 Lose Yourself - Eminem

This is awesome for a workout playlist! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

Funny how this is third and beat it is higher - SnoopDoggedyDog

Lose yourself is a great song but phenomenal should be on the list

You can't help but "lose yourself in the music the moment". Lose yourself definitely deserves to be in top 3. - Donzacuceron

4 Remember the Name - Fort Minor

Catchiest song ever - SnoopDoggedyDog

Heart pumpin' and keeps going'. Always comes in any top workout song lists.

Best workout song ever! Must listen

Yeah. This is totally the best. I listen to it all the time - Aiia152

5 Master of Puppets - Metallica

This whole album is a plate destroyer

When I work out I almost always listen to Metallica - SirSheep

This is mine. - Cyri

Metallica song that's litterally earth shatteringly powerful, just listen to it - Metalhead83927

6 Smooth Criminal - Michael Jackson

I could run the London marathon to this very song and end up first

It should be on the top of this list

That's a great song in workout.

Great for cardio... Running to see if Annie is okay

7 'Till I Collapse - Eminem

This is an essential for any workout! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

Lose yourself and this are the best songs - SnoopDoggedyDog

If u think this is good listen to the remix - SnoopDoggedyDog

Whenever you hear hear song, you just want to fight. It gets you blood pumping and makes you want to work harder. An awesome song, I would say it's better than lose yourself.

8 Walk - Pantera

Best for weights and push ups. - AngusCash

Amazing chorus, heavy/groovy riff, and shredding solo make this the absolute perfect workout song.

Anslemo's voice takes the song to an other level

The only good song on this list! Can't believe that more people don't listen to the pinnacle metal music while working out.

9 Enter Sandman - Metallica

This song is the first on my workout playlist. - Cyri

Best workout song ever. Followed by Iron Maiden: Loneliness Of The Long Distance Runner and Judas Priest: You’ve Got Another Thing Coming, both excellent songs.

Exit light, enter night.

There's no close second.

10 Gonna Fly Now - Bill Conti

I only like this, and ''Eye Of The Tiger''

¡the simply greatest, for a workout routine!

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.

The Contenders

It's amazing how motavated I get to work out when I listen to this song.

13 Du Hast - Rammstein

Great beat and fantastic lyrics as well. Makes you move and gets your blood pumping faster with this song. The English version is good, but the German version is the best.

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

Du hast, du hast nicht

This song is about sex
