    What music do you folks have pumping for motivation during your workouts?

    I'll start...Right now I'm on a David Guetta and Daft Punk kick.

    Music on my iPod to make it feel like I'm somewhere else other than work, 'Rodrigo y Gabriela'.

    I grok, therefore I am.

    Leftfield - Leftism, one of my favourite albums of all time.

    Climbing, I like a suprisingly mellow soundtrack. Jack Johnson and Newton Faulkener etc.

    Seven Summits starting Easter 2010 with Elbrus, so lining up some tracks for that, probably going a bit heavier.

      Industrial metal- something like Ramstein to get me going. (I'm seeing them in Feb-yay!)

      I also listen to Middle Eastern music e.g. Natasha Atlas when I'm doing Arabesque dancing.

          ACDC always motivates me during my sprints.

            I'm loving Tool, and Death From Above 1979 to get me going these days.

              I like to throw, squat and pull heavy things for fun.

              We're designed to be hunters and we're in a society of shopping. There's nothing to kill anymore, there's nothing to fight, nothing to overcome, nothing to explore. In that societal emasculation this everyman is created. ~David Fincher, director of Fight Club, interview with Gavin Smith, "Inside Out," Film Comment, Sep/Oct 1999

                Current Value

                Main artists for hard, dark Drum & Bass if I feel like going at it aggressive.

                The Prodigy is your classic madness. Fat of the land and Invaders Must Die are my favourites.

                The Samurai Champloo soundtrack (4 albums) by Nujabes, Tsutchie & Fat Jon and Force of Nature is pretty damn diverse.
                The Jet Set Radio and Jet Set Radio Future soundtracks all have catchy and original beats that never get old!
                If I want something really mellow, or just downright beautiful instrumental, I'll listen to some Beautiful Killing Machine (what a paradox, eh?)

                Those are my main staples!

                  The birds, the wind in my ears, the pounding of my heart, the grunt of my effort.

                    the bombastic sound of symphonic metal: Kamelot and Nightwish, mostly

                    I can't imagine starting a workout listening to anything other than Kamelot's "Center of the Universe" or the first 3-4mins of Nightwish's "The Poet and the Pendulum".

                      Do the moderators ever merge threads?
                      I ask because this thread is a good candidate to be merged with this one.

                        yeah, this is one that i started late last year even before the new forums were integrated.

                          I should have searched before starting my thread.

                              Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
