Best Workout Songs


The Top Ten

1 Eye of the Tiger - Survivor

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

The best one ever

I knew this was gonna be number one

3 Lose Yourself - Eminem

Lose yourself and till I collapse are the biggest songs when it comes to getting pumped up

No doubt

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!

5 Smooth Criminal - Michael Jackson

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

6 'Till I Collapse - Eminem

Hear it... you gonna tear it

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.

FACK is a more motivational Eminem song in my opinion

Seriously how could you not vote for this song?

8 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.

9 Gonna Fly Now - Bill Conti

This is an example of a song that fits so perfectly during workout. - illusion

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!

14 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
