Top 10 Best Songs to Get You Pumped Up

Imagine stepping into the gym, lacing up your sneakers for a run, or even gearing up for a significant life event. The silence feels heavy and unmotivating, right? Now, think about that perfect beat hitting your ears, the one that resonates with your soul and drives you forward. Suddenly, every fiber of your being is alive with excitement and readiness. That's the power of a great pump-up song!

These aren't just random tracks; they're anthems that accompany us through our ups and downs, musical milestones that connect with our innermost desires to strive and succeed. They're the unsung heroes in the background of our everyday victories, whether those triumphs are on the field, in the office, or on the stage of life itself.
The Top Ten
1 'Till I Collapse - Eminem

All good pump-up songs, but this is the best. If Balboa listened to this, he wouldn't have gotten his ever-lovin' ass kicked by Apollo. Criminal should be on this list too.

This song has pumped a lot of people up, and it is sure one of the greatest Eminem songs of all time!

I think the song Till I Collapse is a great song to be a pump-up song #1. Till I Collapse!

2 Eye of the Tiger - Survivor

Wow, brings the spirit of the great character ROCKY into you. Even would pump the hell out of Bieber himself.

Makes me feel like I can do anything!

Honestly, no song is better to hype you up than Eye of the Tiger.

3 Thunderstruck - AC/DC

You just can't compare against AC/DC, and if you have ever been to one of their concerts, you would know why. They are one of the best bands that there are. They get the whole area pumped up just at one of their live concerts.

AC/DC, the best pump-up band with such great pump-up songs like Hells Bells, Back in Black, and Highway to Hell, to name a few.

AC/DC's Thunderstruck should be number 1 instead of that Marshall Mathers song Till I Collapse!

4 Remember the Name - Fort Minor

After the two above this, I think Remember the Name should be and shall always be the #3 pump-up song. Remember the name.

We played this before a soccer game against Heartland, and we ended up marching them before the end of the first half! Coincidence? I think not!

You should always listen to this. It's amazing! I feel like I can do anything!

5 Lose Yourself - Eminem

I wrestle, and this song is perfect for getting pumped up before a match and explains exactly what is going through my head. Should be number one, in my opinion.

You can't listen to this song without going absolutely wild! This is easily the best pump-up song I have ever listened to, hands down. Never disappoints.

The opening guitar riff gives me chills, and that's like the smallest part of the song. Eminem has a way with words, man!

6 Enter Sandman - Metallica

Best rock opening ever. It's like you just knocked down a big dude, and he gradually stands up and clenches his fist and knocks you out.

Gets you super pumped up. Listen to it before sports games.

Great intro, with a heavy beat throughout.

7 Heart of a Champion - Nelly

Featuring the instruments really makes this song so good to listen to before any game.

This song never gets old to listen to before games!

8 We Will Rock You - Queen

The fast version of "We Will Rock You" is totally and completely out of this world cool! I love this one too, but the fast one will blow you away, just as it did me! Seriously! It's like a different song, much more upbeat, way more energetic - just all around kick-ass awesome! I don't know why they would ever play the slower version of it again after seeing what they could do with the fast one!

Check out "Queen Rock Montreal". They begin with "WWRY - Fast" - amazing!

9 The Final Countdown - Europe
10 Bodies - Drowning Pool
The Contenders
11 Savior - Rise Against

This should be higher because anything heavy will get you pumped. It does for me, and I'm just plain good.

12 Not Afraid - Eminem

This song is probably one of Eminem's best. It describes overcoming challenges and just gets you pumped up!

13 Rich as F*** - Lil Wayne
14 Fury of the Storm - DragonForce

What gets anyone pumped more than speed metal? That's what Fury of the Storm's genre is, Speed metal. Seriously, just listen to it, and you will soon feel the energy literally PULSING through your veins.

You want pumped and ready to take on the world? Try Fury of the Storm, Cry Thunder, or Through Fire and Flames, it's like doing coke for your ears.

15 Jump - Van Halen

This isn't the first thing I'd think of, but good idea, this is good to get you pumped up.

16 Wild Boy - Machine Gun Kelly
17 Cinderella Man - Eminem

One of the best pump-up songs ever. Eminem does it again.

18 Shepherd of Fire - Avenged Sevenfold
19 Paradise City - Guns N' Roses
20 Alpha Omega - MGK
21 Bleed It Out - Linkin Park

If you don't get pumped to this song, you have no soul.

22 Holy Wars...The Punishment Due - Megadeth

The riffs... The closing solo... Just INSANE! One of the greatest metal songs of all time.

23 Live Wire - Motley Crue
24 Burn It Down - Five Finger Death Punch
25 Anthem - Rush
