I am looking to update my playlist.

I lift, and do cardio.
I need something that is going to get me going in the gym.
I like to lift, hard core and need something for motivation.

Give me something good.

PS. i know some trolls will come on here and give me renditions of their dream song, "It is raining men" so please skip it.

like this

even this stuff works for me

Lol. Of course all the men have to assert their masculinity by working out to metal. It might get your testosterone pumping by hearing other men scream, but anything with a good beat is good for cardio because you work out to the pace of the beat. Techno or dance music is actually best... like "4 Minutes" by Justin Timberlake and Madonna, etc. And please - spare me the "that song is so gay" schpiel.

But since we're sticking to rock-type of music, I think Comon would like Rage Against the Machine best. They're good to work out to fo sho. Even cardio. For instance, Killing in the Name Of -- Classic.

So let's get this straight. You're admitting that you don't like (so listen) to techno and yet you think you somehow have the capacity to judge it all -- including the stuff you haven't heard? Interesting.

I've heard some David Guetta. And if I took 15 seconds from any given song, it would be the same experience for me.

I love him. But he doesn't represent all of techno. Plus, even if you may know the techno song "Sandstorm" or something else really popular doesn't mean you can speak on behalf of all of techno. That said, there is repetitiveness in every song. Even metal. They play the same chords over and over while soloing on top of it (sometimes) and when they do change the chord progression, it's the same exact thing as when techno changes the chord progression (even if they're not using guitars - it's the same concept) or key, etc. The aesthetics of music usually relies on some sort of consistency. And plus, the point is that maybe the consistency over and over and over is exactly what makes a song good for working out to. It keeps you at a certain pace. Even if you don't like the genre and get bored with it, it does its job as far as working out is concerned. Some things are better done in steady repetitiveness over and over and over... like giving oral to a girl, for instance ;D (which most guys never understand lol). Anyway once you start going to dance clubs (or doing ecstasy... haha) you'll appreciate the beauty in dance music if you can't yet :P

Anyway I still think RATM with Testify and Killing in the Name of are Comon's best bets. Eh, this Kings of Leon song is good too for cardio.

another band I love. But I started liking them long before they were popular. I tend to like their earlier work although some of the Kings of Leon's later works are alright.

You want a workout you say?

Anger evolved to pump you full of the perfect chemicals to chase down an enemy and smash their skull with a rock.

That is a form of exercise you know, and more-- civilized-- exercise can make use of the same chemicals.

Besides, there's rock that isn't angry, even metal. Sometimes it doesn't sound like it at first blush though. White Zombie's music is essentially devoid of anger.

well i guess like lwerd says it comes down to certain gender differences or maybe even just personality differences. wanting to smash someone's skull with a rock does not motivate me, but i can see how it might motivate others. the only thing that keeps me motivated is being distracted to the point where i'm not noticing how painful the work out is lol. so if i'm listening to my ipod and singing along "if you like it then you shoulda put a ring on it" which is uppity and makes me smile, then i can bear through the grunt work, so to speak.
