Love Pac. Have "How Do U Want It" in the MP3 player right now.
Also got some of the Rocky soundtrack in there - great stuff!

Lately....the last 2 songs before I go into the gym are Anthrax-Skeletons in the Closet...and Anthrax - Indians.
I'd use my MP3 player, but I've kinda liked not being connected to anything while working out lately. Weird.

pantera, old metallica, slayer, tool, stabbing westward, and every so often in an odd mellow mood Johnny Cash or George Jones.

I'm so behind the times, clueless on who these bands are.
I grew up on 70s rock, still have Nugent, Aerosmith, etc. in my Zen player, the most contemporary additions would be the Foofighters and the Stone Temple Pilots.
Can anyone suggest bands a relic like myself might want to check out?

My ex-roommate and I got up on stage with pennywise at the warped tour 3 years ago. It was a wild time!!! We snuck back-stage and saw them sitting around, so just asked them if they would bring us up. They said sure and got us up there, it was AMAZING!Originally Posted by glenihan

This is a really weird problem I have. I CANNOT wear headphones in the gym. Does anyone else experience this?
Whenever I have headphones on my breathing/heartbeat begin to regulate themselves in time with the beat of the music....
I have read studies that have proven this is a natural response to music, but was wondering if you guys feel the same? I got an Ipod nano from my girl for my birthday and cant even use it in the gym

Radiohead is my suggestion it gets better the more you listen to it.Originally Posted by Rogue Drone
I mostly liked Led Zep , Rush etc but decided to update my music a couple of years ago. some good nu metal bands are Mudvayne and disturbed and Godsmack proably will suite you

At the Drive-in
angrier NIN songs
Linkin Park (it's throw-away music but it pumps you up)
Led Zeppelin - Kashmir (makes feel like big things are happening)
System of a Down
Some Trance as well

my gym is a bunch of old ****s listening to awful awful 80's pop, No I am not kidding... Thank you IPAWD...

Praise the lord for MP3 players:
Guns N' Roses
System of a Down
Anything that can incite a feeling of extreme anger.
Note: My all time fav is Jimmy Buffett.... but ol' Jimmy just doesn't cut it when you're shoulder pressing 100 lb. dumbbells. lol.

Diplomats get me pretty motivated in the gym sometimes. Especially "ground zero". I've put up some pr's on that song.Originally Posted by Achilles13

I work at the school gym so I have to watch what I play. On the other hand, I'm one of the few who actually needs to get pumped up for my lifts so I play what I want when I need to get my head on.
Here's the goods:
Slipknot (Wait and Bleed still gives me goosebumps)
Alice In Chains
White/ Rob Zombie
It'd be cool to get an all time fav. lifting songs list. Kinda like a sampling of everyone's songs that get them pumped like no other.

Pantera( walk),Testament, Dying Fetus(killing on adrenaline rocks), Goratory,Hatebreed, Six feet under, Sepultura( Territory live). Guttral secrete, just a few to get amped

It really depends on my mood.
Some days I listen to no music because I'm in a crazy mood just to hit the gym hard.
When I'm not on one of those days I listen to different types of music once again depending on my mood.
Atmosphere(Really only rap I enjoy)- When I'm in the mood to have a nice beat and some intelligent words while I work out.
Children of Bodom- When I need some endurance - Very fast melodic metal from finland.
Underoath(Old)- If I'm in a normal mood
At the Drive in- If I'm in a mellow mood.
Killswitch Engage- Once again refer to Underoath
Maylene and the Sons of Disaster- If I'm in a really trashy mood haha
