    It totally depends on your music taste and what you are going for. I love upbeat fast music for a work out, but recently I've also found that something more mellow can sometimes help me put "mind over matter" in a corny "zen" sort of way when I really hit a wall during cardio or something similar.

    Anyway, if you want some suggestions try:

    POD
    Marilyn Manson
    Powerman 5000
    Papa Roach
    Cake - "Going the Distance"
    Foo Fighters
    Ice Cube
    Beastie Boys
    Ting Tings
    Black Eyed Peas
    Andrew WK
    50 Cent
    Gravediggaz
    Wu Tang Clan
    The Killers
    Gwen Stefani
    Missy Elliot

    Of course pretty much any club, techno, or house/trance is going to have a fast beat. It really just comes down to what kind of stuff you like to listen to.

    Any death metal or grindcore band, essentially :D I would give my vote for Nile, Misery Index and Rotten Sound. Always able to do a lift or two more with them

    This... I love speed metal and other music that is fast and in your face to get me going. However when I am doing cardio, I actually like a little slower music...... Just my personal preference.

    Of course, these only work for exercising if your idea of exercise is getting out of your chair for the eighth time in 30 minutes to go pee. :eek: :rolleyes: :eek:

    Rage Against the Machine is definitely a great band to listen to during a work out. I saw them live and it was ridiculous.

    If you like Electro or Dubstep, check out The Kollection. They've a work out mix.

    'Til I Collapse - Eminem (not that fast but it's good for lifting)
    Collision - As I Lay Dying
    Omen - Mt Eden
    Heart of A Champion - Nelly

    I generally prefer rap with a heavy bass line, but when I run I like the ones listed above.

    I always listen to Lil Wayne when I lift, for whatever reason it helps me get a good rhythm. I switch to metal or hard rock for endurance activities.
