I just started running again, and my first run (a little more than 5 miles) got me pretty tired. I have an mp3 player which I play to strap on my shorts when I run, and play some music to keep me going when it gets tough. I'm looking for some fast paced, wild music. What I have so far is:

Pretty much all metallica songs
Rob Zombie songs

What else do you think? Any specific songs? I'm looking for stuff that is REALLY wild and gets you MAD and FIRED UP!

Thanks.

For something really heavy, Slipknot.

I say you listen to Megadeth! Holy Wars can really pump you up.

Wow 5 miles on your first run is nuts. Be careful you don't get hurt! I run also, well atm I am not since I hurt my knee, but normally when I do run I listen to sloooow music.
I like to go into a relaxing trance-like state while I run. I do alternate though and listen to rap sometimes.

I like to get mad when I run. I need music to remind me of all the times I want to hit my parents in the face, or swear at them, or punch somebody, or kill people, things like that. Know what I mean? Then I forget about running and am just so mad I keep going.

Yeah, I love MegadetH...
All their albums are great except Risk

Actually any thrash metal song can really pump you up!

So you don't like Thrash Metal...

Metallica is good( the first 5 albums ), Pantera is good also...
But Rob Zombie is very different it's even Metal( as I see them, they seem more like TECHNO )

WOW slipknot is great for what I'm looking for they really go crazy. Megadeth was a bit too quiet and boring for my likes. Slipknot is effing wild man, imagine them in concert!!!!!!!!!!!

So, I'd say the best for getting me fired up during workout is:

1) Slipknot
2) Rob Zombie
3) Metallica

You have to admit, listen to some slipknot songs and they are the loudest, most full of sound, maddening, craziest kind of songs that will make you forget you're working out and just make you go crazy! I can't understand the lyrics because they don't sing, they scream, but that's what makes it wild!

But when I'm not looking to get pumped up I listen to Metallica, Rob Zombie, Good Charlotte, Billy Joel, Styx, Jigga man jay z, the tokens, nostalgia from moscow, techno remixes, chemical brothers, the proclaimers, supertramp, lots of good stuff like that.

I have. They seem sort of like Pantera (not as heavy though) to me. But I don't understand what they are saying and lyrics are a huge factor in my music.

Yeah. I used to like Slipknot, but now I like Stone Sour better. Corey has a good voice, and in Stone Sour, you actually get to hear him sing.

I didn't download any Ramstein yet, I downloaded some Pantera which seems pretty good. What I like about slipknot is the wild and crazy screaming. I mean, what can get you more fired up than heavy banging music with a guy screaming in the back?

Is Ramstein as heavy and loud and screamish and fast as slipknot?

If you haven't already, check out $$$$ing Hostile, Cowboys from Hell, and Mouth for War by Pantera. Also, Rammstein is pretty damn cool, and if you can understand German then their lyrics won't be too hard to understand.

ever read. I can just imagine somebody running and listening
to that... Hehehe..

Very funny. :)

Band like Rob Zombie, Slipknot, Rammstein, are very defferent from bands like Metallica, MegadetH, Iron Maiden, etc...

So you cann't realy compare them to each other...

If you like songs with great solos, great lyrics( that you can understand ), you should listen yo MegadetH, Metallica, Iron Maiden, etc...

But If you want songs with heavy rythm, screaming, etc.. you should listen to Rob Zombie, Slipknot, etc...

Needs more:

Final Countdown, by Europe.

Seriously, though, if you want to get pumped up, try some punk. Real punk, not that Good Charlotte crap.

Rammstein is also different from Slipknot, you are right.

I'm not a Rammstein fan.. I hate the use of Keyboard in their songs, it gives the impression of a techno song not a metal one! Although the rhythm is sometimes good

J-pop needs to disappear, it encourages the growth of this manga-obsessed "artistic" youth, the truth is everyone in HS draws manga and pimps it around to show everyone how creative they are for watching too much anime and subsequently learning how to replicate the style.

J-pop sucks.
Anime is ok - just don't draw it plzkthx.
Rammstein rapes my virgin ears, and it is so good :D

Don't worry, when you get to college, those manga obsessed students will be gone; most of them flunk out after a semester, leaving only dorks like me.
