When it comes to weightlifting, there's nothing like some good thrash metal. I suggest Slayer's Reign In Blood, South of Heaven, and Seasons in the Abyss; and Metallica's Kill 'em All, Ride The Lightning, Master of Puppets, and ...and Justice for All.

It's been over a year since Cheapo recommended "Freakin Da Funk" in this thread, and I have since worked out to it over a hundred times, including during a 10K where it helped me reach my best time ever (and to acquire a case of DOMS I will never forget). There is something ineffably sublime about it, and it gets me going every time like Pavlov's dog, if Pavlov had trained his dog to breakdance on hot asphalt. So if you're looking for workout music... there you go.
Very much depends on my mood but likely one (or several) of the below:
Nine Inch Nails
Supertramp (anybody remember that group?)
Emerson Lake and Palmer
AKA: Texas Grok

The clanking of weights is music to my ears. I actually listen to nothing when I am lifting. Part of the reason is that I work out at 5:20 a.m. and listening to Megadeth, AC/DC, Pantera, Motley Crue, Metallica, Sammy Hagar, Accept, The Cure, The Meat Puppets or Big Head Todd and the Monsters just doesn't do it for me that early...unless I am already up from the night before.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't have a constant soundtrack.
Walking or running outside with headphones seems like a safety hazard, even though the entire city of Boston seems to be plugged in constantly to something. The drivers here are both aggressive and unpredictable, and I can't stand cutting off one of my senses like that in a semi-dangerous situation.
In a gym or even doing bodyweight exercises, I always feel like the headphone cable is getting in the way somehow.
I mostly listen to chilled out music or hip hop when I workout and WANT music (which isn't often)
Only a few songs really "push me" though, like for instance "when good dogs do bad things" by Dillinger Escape Plan is a track I'd have on repeat when running. If you know the song, you know the part I'm talking about.
I prefer female singers sometimes when training. Norah Jones, Amy Winehouse, Fiona Apple, Adele, Bjork...
I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.
Ted Allen's dry voice, announcing the last 10 seconds of a round of chopped. Alternatively, Alton Brown announcing that Mario Batali is using brandy in his flambe using only the color of the flame on Iron Chef.
Seriously, though, I tend to listen to either techno/dance, metal, or power metal/nerd metal stuff. Unfortunately my gym likes to play country and pop, because nothing pumps me up like OWL CITY and songs about my TRUCK!
