Best Workout Songs

The Top Ten

Eye of the Tiger - Survivor Eye of the Tiger - Survivor Cover Art

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.

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

This was WAY before Roar. And better than it, too. I heard that Roar ripped off a bunch of songs including this one. - HaiThere


Always feel like Rocky Balboa when listening!

Beat It - Michael Jackson Beat It - Michael Jackson Cover Art

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.

I love the beat for this

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

Lose Yourself - Eminem Lose Yourself - Eminem Cover Art

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

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!

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

This is the only song (Besides 'Till I Collapse) that will get me off the couch to pump some iron. EPIC SONG!

Remember the Name - Fort Minor Remember the Name - Fort Minor Cover Art

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

HELL YEAH! Every time this song plays, I work out like a pure badass

Master of Puppets - Metallica Master of Puppets - Metallica Cover Art

When I work out I almost always listen to Metallica

This whole album is a plate destroyer

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

I workout w Metallica songs all the time

Smooth Criminal - Michael Jackson Smooth Criminal - Michael Jackson Cover Art

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

Walk - Pantera Walk - Pantera Cover Art

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

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

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

Best for weights and push ups.

Gonna Fly Now - Bill Conti Gonna Fly Now - Bill Conti Cover Art

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!

This theme send energy to blood and body

Enter Sandman - Metallica Enter Sandman - Metallica Cover Art

This song is the first on my workout playlist.

Exit light, enter night.

There's no close second.


'Till I Collapse - Eminem 'Till I Collapse - Eminem Cover Art

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?

So Much Motivation... picks you up when your down

Most of the songs on this list aren't for strength training, but this is the absolute best for it.

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

Best wokout song ever

Du Hast - Rammstein Du Hast - Rammstein Cover Art

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

One of the best songs of all time!

Nobody knows any other queen songs

except Another One Bites the Dust and We Are the Champions, but yeah.

This is nostalgic!

I use to listen to this all the time but now I just have better options

This in not only good song in workout, this is overall one of the greatest songs of 21st century!

Kanye west is not that great but still this song is amazing!

This song makes me work harder, better, faster, STRONGER

The Final Countdown - Europe The Final Countdown - Europe Cover Art

I'm only commenting on this because I'm English

Breakout - Bon Jovi Breakout - Bon Jovi Cover Art
A Warrior's Call - Volbeat A Warrior's Call - Volbeat Cover Art
Merry Christmas from the Family - Robert Earl Keen Merry Christmas from the Family - Robert Earl Keen Cover Art

I know this looks like a troll item, but I actually have legit reasoning to say it's one of the best workout songs: It's such a ridiculous song that it helps with mental strength. Try doing thirty curls with a 36-pound dumbbell while listening to this; I can guarantee it's almost impossible

Thunderstruck - AC/DC Thunderstruck - AC/DC Cover Art

AC/DC has a ton of songs that could make this list. Their songs are so full of energy.

This is a definite for any workout playlist.

Thunderstruck! Damn that voice!


Warriors - Imagine Dragons Warriors - Imagine Dragons Cover Art

Have you ever been running while listening to this song? Enough said.

This is like the best song to do a workout to!

Scream - Usher Scream - Usher Cover Art
Far from Over - Frank Stallone Far from Over - Frank Stallone Cover Art

Yes it's cheesy. Yes, it might even be a bad song if I'm being honest. But still, this is a great workout song. Also, I just wanted Frank Stallone on the list, OK?

I used to love Frank Stallone's music. That was about four years ago. The only song I still remember is "Moody Girl." I don't even remember the lyrics. Just the title. I understand you wanted Frank Stallone on the list, but I'm gonna have to listen to this again to determine whether I like it or not. - HaiThere

Jump - Van Halen Jump - Van Halen Cover Art
