Love the lists so far!

Here are some of my go-to's.

Kaiser Chiefs - Everyday I Love You Less & Less
IAmDynamite - Where Will We Go
New Politics - Harlem
My Chemical Romance - Na Na Na
Bloc Party - One Month Off
Willy Moon - Yeah Yeah (a little slower)
Head Automatica - Brooklyn is Burning
Louis XIV - Finding Out True Love is Blind
Caesars - Jerk It Out (has great lines like "it's easy once you know how it's done, can't stop now it's already begun, you feel it running through your bones" - I play this on when losing some motivation during my workout)
Kasabian - Reason is Treason
Green Day - Let Yourself Go
Teddybears - Cobra Style (feat. Mad Cobra)
Hot Hot Heat - Talk to Me, Dance with Me
Chemical Brothers - Setting Sun (electronica, good for zoning out to a higher beat)
Blue Man Group - I Feel Love

For "angry" workouts, I like most of the Mission Impossible 2 soundtrack.

Probably not your style but I like angry rock music best - Volbeat, Halestorm, Hollywood Undead, etc. I can just ride the beat.

Anything by Pitbull or Daddy Yankee.
Take Over Control- by Afrojack is a good one
Telephone- Lady GaGa and Beyonce
Tokio Hotel's music is also good.

I don't know if you like this kind of music but I love running to Linkin Park.

Well, first, I love that you have Gay Bar on the list. Love Electric Six!

Second, I use the site to get ideas for music to listen to while I run. You can plug in your pace per mile and it will give you songs with that beat--so cool! You can also narrow the selections by genre if you want. (They have a bunch of user-created playlists, too, but I haven't really checked those out.)

Hi all,

I'm looking for some high energy high tempo running songs to add to my list. I run on a treadmill, so no danger of getting hit by cars. In return here are some of my favs.

Florence - The dog days are over (and pretty much everything else on that album)
Electric Six - Gay bar
Misfits - Ballroom blitz
White Arrows - Coming or Going
The Darkness - I believe in a thin called love
Arctic Monkeys - I bet that you look good on the dance floor
Kasabian - Shoot the runner
David Guetta - The alphabeat
BRMC - Beat the devils tattoo
RHCP - Can't stop
The white stripes - Hypnotize
Zeppelin - Immigrant song
Kanye - Jesus Walks
