The Top Ten
1 Eye of the Tiger - Survivor

One of the best songs I ever heard. Really fantastic running and parkour song. It must be at the top of the list.

I always listen to this great song whenever I walk, run, go to the gym, and even at breakfast time.

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. Oddly enough, I performed better when this song came on.

Punching bag music. The fighting theme from Rocky works well with the whole working-out thing.

2 Beat It - Michael Jackson

My mom played this for home aerobics in the '80s! MJ is a legend but relevant for any workout these days. It's actually funny it's on the list!

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

3 Lose Yourself - Eminem

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!

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

This is the best workout song ever!

I work out with Insanity, and this song fits perfectly for the exercises. Love it!

4 Master of Puppets - Metallica

There are many Metallica songs I listen to at the gym that fire me up.

5 Remember the Name - Fort Minor

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

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

Best workout song ever! Must listen.

6 Enter Sandman - Metallica

Best workout song ever. Followed by Iron Maiden's Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner and Judas Priest's You've Got Another Thing Coming, both excellent songs.

This song is the first on my workout playlist.

7 Walk - Pantera

The only good song on this list! Can't believe that more people don't listen to the pinnacle of 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.

8 Du Hast - Rammstein

Great beat and fantastic lyrics as well. This song makes you move and gets your blood pumping faster. 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.

9 Smooth Criminal - Michael Jackson

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

10 'Till I Collapse - Eminem

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

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

Really good song to work out to and makes you want to beat up people you don't like.

The Contenders
11 Gonna Fly Now - Bill Conti

If you don't think this deserves at least #2 or #3, go watch Rocky, listen to this song, and then say it doesn't motivate you.

Truly a gigantic song and great motivator. It gives a great energy boost and makes one pump harder.

You feel like Rocky when listening.

12 Girlfriend - Avril Lavigne
13 Jump - Van Halen
14 We Will Rock You - Queen

One of the best songs of all time!

15 Work Bitch - Britney Spears

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

16 A Warrior's Call - Volbeat
17 Counting Stars - OneRepublic
18 Scream - Usher
19 Stronger - Kanye West

This is not only a good song for workouts, this is overall one of the greatest songs of the 21st century!

While hearing Stronger, run faster.

20 Before I Forget - Slipknot
21 The Final Countdown - Europe
22 You're the Best - Joe Esposito

Also in Rocky, it gets you into the mood of any fitness workout!

23 Angel of Death - Slayer

This song is the perfect workout song with the groove-heavy breakdown, blisteringly fast solo, and haunting vocals.

24 Fight Fire with Fire - Metallica
25 Song 2 - Blur

Even though it's only 2 minutes long, it's a great workout song.
