Best Workout Songs


The Top Ten

1 Eye of the Tiger - Survivor Eye of the Tiger - Survivor

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

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

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.

2 Beat It - Michael Jackson Beat It - Michael Jackson

Best ot the best!

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

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 Lose Yourself - Eminem

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

Not only is the beat awesome and the rhythm builds up to a tremendous crescendo, but the lyrics give your workout a sense of urgency and desperation. Just great! I can never listen to this with complacency. You get worked up whenever you listen to this song, which, if you think about it, makes this the best workout song ever!

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

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.

Seriously how could you not vote for this song?

8 Walk - Pantera

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.

Listen to the song I don't understand how it's not on this list like honestly search it up

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 Newcomers

? Mother - Danzig

The Contenders

11 Girlfriend - Avril Lavigne

I never used to like this song, but it's really grown on me - Meg21

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.

LOVE this song. Definitely a good pump up song. This song makes me want to go crazy!

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

Du hast, du hast nicht

50 Animals - Nickelback

It deserves the number one place. It's the best song for running and workout! When the pitch becomes higher and when the voice rises you will get energy boost! It really works for hardcore running with full energy. I always hear it three to five times in my warm up running session, my blood starts boiling!

This song is about sex
