All I got is the Rocky Balboa: The Best of Rocky soundtrack on my iPod. I need some more pumped up stuff to workout too. I also need something really pumping while I'm running.

I have lots of: AC/DC, Rolling Stones, Beatles, Paul McCartney, John Lennon, John Mellencamp, Bruce Springsteen, The Who, Aerosmith, Warren Zevon, Led Zepplin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Stepenwolf, Tom Petty, Queen, U2, Van Halen and Wings on the computer. I didn't want to add all of their stuff since some stuff isn't as good as other stuff.

Any recommendations for good, rocking songs?

Morning Glory - Oasis

First song I always play when I go running. Hell of a rock tune when played really loud while running. Also The Swamp Song. Its an instrumental (no idea if ya like those) but it gets pretty loud and busy.

You listed some of the other artist I listen to.

I don't listen to anything "current". Anything after Nirvana is lost on me. I can't stand a lot of todays stuff. It seems all the same plus half the bands are nowhere in a few years after they're "discovered" and then proceed to sellout.

Maybe you should try a little classical music, Brendan!  8)

"Ride of the Valkyries" from Wagner's Die Walküre used to work pretty well for me (though I only played it on the "inner I-Pod")!

That's what I figured.

I listen to pretty much everything. Old stuff, new stuff.
You already had all the classic stuff, so I thought, maybe you'll like some of the new stuff.

But hey it's your workout, your iPod  O0

I listen to all kinds of stuff when I'm working out..including Classical and Jazz.. I can really get "lost" in some of that stuff... I also listen to Dylan's Hurricane occasionaly..

Of course the Rocky theme is right up there.. :)

Unfortunately I'm stuck at home at the moment recovering from an op.... piling the pounds on.. :o
  I'm gonna take the oppertunity to compile some new workout soundtracks..

Yeah, jazz works great too  O0

Check out Eddie Harris - Listen Here - terrific!

A few other jazzy  songs (and some oldies too) I find myself listening to a lot these days while working out:
Curtis Mayfield - Superfly
Zero 7 - In The Waiting Line
Solomon Burke - None of Us Are Free
Joe Cocker - Feelin' Alright
Al Green - Love and Happiness
Otis Redding - Pain In My Heart

Oh and yeah Robert Palmer - Bad Case of Loving You (Doctor, Doctor)  ;D

Well, these work great for me ... might not work for everybody though. Especially, you, Brendan, if you're more into classic rock  ;)

So many, I can't think of them all now.

Flashdance, Fame and their like work quite well.  But KC is right about the classical.  Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance March No.1 gets me going every time, as does Rule Brittannia - but they might not work the same for a Canadian! ;D

It's funny, this ain't the usual workout music, but we were in the gym the other day and they had that crappy Hits TV on the screens, and it was worst love songs, and I really got going to the bad 80's tunes.  Remember that hilarious video for Lionel Richie's Hello, in which he's fallen for the blind girl?  For some reason that made me go crazy on the rowing machine! :D  But I was laughing my head off too, so not really ideal for a serious body thrashing. ;D

You cannot go wrong with The Ramones Brendan. If you really want a good rocking groove to work out with, go with Obituary or Six Feet Under. >:D

Brendan , get Obituary - Slowly We Rot. Work out to that everyday for about a month and you will turn into a man of super human strength. It is a great album as well. O0
