    I am pretty lucky too. My gym is mostly all guys. Most between 16 and 35. We get to listen to any kind of stuff from rage against the machine to slipknot, atreyu, as I lay dying, disturbed system of a down. All the good stuff.

    I am a big fan of listening to 90's hip-hop like Bone thugs, Notorious BIG, Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, mostly gang-banging hip-hop... but also like to work out to the newer rap like 50 cent, lil Wayne, etc. I like basically all types ofmusic besides techno and country though so anything that appeals to my ears i listen to.

    yeah i've seen pennywise live a few times .. great live show .. but nothing can compare to when i saw Joe Strummer live in Nov of 98

    i really only like the Hot Damn album by every time i die .. gutter phenomenon just doesn't do it for me .. and the first album they tried too hard to be too complicated with the music

    Mine would have to be Metallica, Slayer, Amon Amarth, Iced Earth, Pantera, Disturbed, and Drowning Pool. Helps to provide a bit of encouragement and keeps distractions to a minimum. Nothing says I'm here to work like a glare that could melt lead and headphones blaring metal.

    Good taste man. Alot of Rancid songs get me pretty amped up when I'm lifting. Roots radicals always gets me juiced up. Pretty much just good aggressive punk in general, with maybe some old-school hardcore thrown in the mix is always good. Cro-mags, before the quarrel seems to find itself rotating in my mp3 player alot.

    Mudvayne get's it done, Slipknot, Sepultura, Soul Fly, Deftones, RATM, Chimara, a couple of local bands no one has ever heard of, Every Time I Die.

    Just as a side note; there is this one owner at my gym who is always playing the most ridiculous music. last year around thanksgiving he was playing this Celtic music, now I am Irish, but I don't want to listen to the Titanic sink while I am Sqatting. Then last week, he was playing this instrumental, elevator style christmas album. How do you get pumped up to that? The worst part is the guy is ALL ABOUT this ****, like he stands around telling people about how "I saw this band last year at the community center and they rocked!" I seriously would like to smash the sterio when he plays that crap. Thank god I usually go to the gym at like 3 in the morning.

    The Used.........great songs, and the best live performers ive EVER seen, ive been to four of their show and they always blow me away
    Definitely some AFI
    Definitely some My Chemical Romance
    Im trying to back away from the hard stuff but i still like em....underoath, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, the New Finch CD has some duesy's, Thursday, Greeley Estates, Dear Whoever, maybe some Silverstein, Thrice, Let Live, Agony Scene, Funeral for a Friend, Avenged Sevenfold, etc...
    Im really not a fan of rap unless im throwin a party, in which case its a must if you want to dance with girls.

    Lately i just listin to chillin music: Guster, Kalia, Jack Johnson

    everyone that's mentioned Every Time I Die should check out "shape of punk to come" by Refused .. best hardcore album EVER and considering it came out in 97 it was way ahead of its time

    Dennis Lyxzen (sp) is the singer .. he's now the singer of the (international) noise conspiracy

    Yeah, shape of punk to come blew me away when I first heard it. Some of the coolest breakdowns I have ever heard. I haven't played that album in a long time, I might have to pop it in.

    I'm lucky, my NROTC unit has a weight room in the Armory. It's really small but it has all my friend and I need to get things done. It also has a stereo so we can pick the music. I think I'm the only Navy option that uses the weight room, other than me it's just the marines. Even my workout partner is a marine option.

    Rancid- ... And Out Come the Wolves
    Older AFI
    Calavera
    Tiger Army
    Social Distortion
    Some ridiculous mainstream rap
    80's pop
    50's rockabilly- Eddie Cochran, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, etc.
    Carmina Burana, which reminds me, I need to get some classical to make a classical mix for lifting, any suggestions?

    LOL! Well sir you have a good taste in music.

    Everyone that's ever asked me what I'm listening to while I'm working out gets kind of scared. I get the "Oh ****, this guys a ticking time bomb" treatment. Girls don't seem to mind it though. They seem to understand it's a guy thing.

    Date's really suck though because every cd i have is this stuff.....it doesnt work. So i tell my dates to bring their music or we will be listening to the radio. (i hate the f ing radio)

    It is a tough problem. I like it when girls im dating like the same music as i do so its not the "can we listen to my music after this" senario. But then again there is something very unsexy to me about girls that like the sound of men screaming like they are dying.

    I agree. However, on the flipside nothing to me is more unappealing than an emo chick...

    Lately, my taste has been very different. Mostly Spanish music:
    Carlos Vives
    La Ley
    Diego Torres
    Shakira (sexy and talented )
    Alejandro Sanz

    But overall, I tend toward some heavier stuff, only while I'm lifting (I used to listen to heavy music every waking hour, and I was a very angry young man).
    I still throw these on once in a while (I used to know most of these guys):
    Vision of Disorder
    Candiria
    Crown of Thornz
    E-Town Concrete
    Madball
    ...of course, I'll still throw on some Jeff Buckley and Radiohead

    I refuse to take girls with me to concerts now. My friend brought his girl to warp tour this year and some retard in a mosh flailing his arms hit her in the face. She lost a tooth and her lips were all ripped up.....it was pain full to watch that happen to a girl.

    You knew Madball and Crown of Thornz bro? Thats awesome. I bet you have some crazy stories if you hung around those guys. Madball- Hold it Down is an awesome cd to play when lifting.
