    I'm looking for individual songs that I can use while working out: weightlifting and slamming the heavy bag in my old barn. Here's a very short sampling of what I currently own (and really dig):

    "Break Stuff" : Limp Bizkit
    "Invert" : Blindside
    "Headstrong" : Trapt
    "Rise" : Disturbed
    "Hard" : Rollins Band
    "Sleep Now In The Fire" : Rage Against the Machine

    Take a second look at that list. What else should I add to it? If you know half of what I've already listed, you should understand what I'm looking for: powerful hard rock/metal that makes me wanna split that 100 pound heavy bag right down the middle...

    Your suggestions? Thanks,

    mangoman

    This is a good song. Also check out others recommended songs from there.

    Iron Maiden?

    Megadeth?

    Metallica is prerequisite for any heavy playlist, however unavailable from iTMS.

    Last and Best=NIN tunes. Try "Happiness in Slavery"

    "Wish" from same album will have you screaming and jumping around the weight room. Might wanna save that one for workouts in your basement or something.

    I need to the same thing for mountain bike training rides. I would like some more electronic techno stuff that has a good beat so I can keep a good pedal cadence.

    Any Disturbed track from the first album works for me, plus tracks like Jizzlobber and Crackhitler from Faith No More's Angel Dust LP

    I also use led Zep's Achillies Last Stand for an intensive heavy bag workout, try keeping the rhythm running for the 10-odd minutes and not missing a shot:eek:

    Some of Pearl Jam's early stuff is good, try 10 or Vs,and there's a couple of really good tracks on Audioslaves LP too.

    Gotta love Henry Rollins though, gives it that extra zip, right?

    I've actually listened to a little Metallica from time to time during my workouts...not too bad.

    Filter works really well also. I recommend Title of a Record.

    I usually listen to Paul Oakenfold, BT or Hybrid during my workouts though. Also, if u are into techno, I'd suggest something progressive. Too much droning beat can be way too repetitive & not do the trick. ;)

    Just judging from your list, I'm going to need to suggest The Rapture's "House of Jealous Lovers" (best song in 2004, possibly?), and their other song "Killing" from their album, Echoes. :) It's not hard rock or heavy metal or whatever..........it's a bit nuts sometimes though. ;) It has the beat of a dance song, but it's definitely rock.

    Oddly...not oddly whatever, I like this group called Girls Aloud, but that is total chick music. I also love 311...their earlier works more over their later stuff, but their later stuff is simply amazing as well.
    You already have Rage...but I also recommend Rage, their Evil Empire CD.

    Surely you can't beat the Rocky soundtrack?!!! If it works for him... ;)

    Ok, this isn't heavy but bear with me – Kaiser Chiefs album is actually strangely good to work out to, as is Franz Ferdinand's first album. They have some quite fast basslines that you can keep rythmn to, and keep smiling!

    I used to work out to Jump by Van Halen, including the 1984 intro.

    Nice slow kata warm up followed by a good beat. For every beat there was a punch or a kick. Worked well -- even with weapons.

    I tend to listen to either Meshuggah or Sigur Ros.......I know, i know.....they are completely different.....

    I personally think that anything by Meshuggah is just great for the gym. I love working out while listening over and over again to "New Millennium Cyanide Christ" by meshuggah. it just gives so much energy :cool:

    I love me some Kenny G.....

    in all seriousness -- I personally like to listen to either Rap or Rock when I work out

    Rap
    Lean with it Rock with it - Dem Franchise Boys
    Snap Ya Fingers - Lil Jon
    Let's Go - Lil Jon
    Soul Survivor - Young Jeezy featuring Akon
    Heart of a Champion - Nelly

    Rock
    My Hero - Foo Fighters
    Faint - Linkin Park
    Thunderstruck - ACDC
    Hero of the Day - Metallica

    But the music that really turns my gears is Going the Distance by Bill Conti...it's one of the training songs used in the Rocky series -- I don't know why but it always gets me ready to go.

    Buy Slayer's Undisputed Attitude albumn. It's Slayer doing some fantastic covers of some great punk tracks.

    Any Dead Kennedys albumn will work, as will older Bad Religion, TSOL, Agent Orange, Seven Seconds, Black Flag or MDC albumn.

    Don't forget your Andrew WK blitzkreig of sound. If that doesn't get your blood pumping, hitting a bag surely won't.

    Smashing Pumpkins first album Gish is great. There are other good SP tunes to rock by.

    Welcome to the Jungle by GNR.

    Yes, I'm an 80s child.

    I'm suprised that no one has endorsed Appetite for Destruction yet! That would be my main pick as a whole album. Axl really makes me want to misbehave and hit stuff.

    I also recommend some straight up guitar instrumental rock from Steve Vai or joe Satriani, check out, Satch boogie, Fire in the house, mind storm, the audience is listening (except for the beginning) Giant balls of gold, the cryin machine,

    Ozzy works great too! check out the Ultimate Sin, not his best, but the whole thing is like one big song!

    If you are really angry, just spring for the Lamb of God death metal! yARR

    of course the disturbed and limb bizkit works well too, i'm just a bit more old school in my tastes!
