TracyFabulous I love your list!!! That kind of classic old school rock is playing in punk houses everywhere. This seems like kind of an old thread but wanted to give you props on your good taste!

A mixture of everything! Iron Maiden, Down, Pantera, Nickelback, Metallica, Flyleaf, Journey...I just put the ipod on shuffle and click through until something strikes me as that next push through song!

I need to update my playlist for working out. Usually I prefer anything heavy, especially with double bass drum beats. Usually that means something like Static-X, some Mushroomhead, Arcanium (new band I love)...That kind of thing really gets me moving.

Why would anyone laugh at you, Tracyfabulous, because you are 45? I am also 45. Heck maybe they are laughing at me, I just started my first rock band. I'm singing Zeppelin and Heart like I always wanted to!

Actually, I should make a note of some of these newer groups everyone talks about here. I'm sort of hopelessly stuck in the 60's and 70's. Yesterday I listened to Journey while I worked out, (Infinity and Evolution were great albums IMO). But what is good that is truly current? Never even heard of some of these groups you guys talk about.

Hubby and I tried to watch some of the Grammys the other night and we almost died of boredom. What the heck is all this Taylor Swift/beyonce/pink/lady gaga/kanye west stuff?

Is there any new really great rock out there?

Hi fellow headbangers! When I lift weights I like Pantera, Metallica or Disturbed. When doing cardio - Korn, Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit is great for running.

ROCK ON!

Don't laugh too hard ladies...but I'm 45. I was a punk rocker/rocker thru most of the late 70's/early 80's....so my playlist is a bit...Old School ? My 16 year son says I'm not Golden Oldies, not Classic Rock. He says the 80's crowd is "Old School". (Shhhhewwww! That made me feel better. Thought Mommy's ego was going to go right down the tubes.) Anyways....some of my "Old School" favs to work out to are:
Patti Smith - Ask the Angels
Pretenders - Mystery Achievement & Brass in Pocket
Boomtown Rats - Fine Art of Surfacing album
Talking Heads - Little Creatures album
AC/DC (nearly anything)
Scorpions - Ballads & Rockers
Divinyls - I T**ch Myself
The Tubes - What Do You Want From Life
Rolling Stones - Shattered, She's So Cold
The Ramones - Bonzo Goes To Bitburg
T-Rex - Mambo Sun & Lean Woman Blues (ironic, huh? But it's a great "cool down" song)
B-52's - Rock Lobster
AND the list goes on!

I DO love some newer stuff. Some of the System of A Down. I love that one Disturbed song with that driving beat.."Down With the Sickness" tho the content is a bit depressing. Coheed & Cambria "Hope You're Waiting" (i think is the name) that's a mover.

Anyways, I'm going to check out some of you ladies' favs. I may get some new ideas!

Keep ROCKIN'! and have FUN getting FIT!

I have a few very different playlists for workouts that I use depending on my mood, so I'll only go with the one that'd make sense to post here (lol I almost remember it off by heart I use it that often)

Tire Me - RATM
Hush - Tool
My Mind's Sedate - Shihad
Fascist Jock Itch - Skinny Puppy
March of the Pigs - NIN
Bounce - System of a Down
Angel with the Scabbed Wings - Marilyn Manson
... ahh this is where I start to forget ;) there's some Pantera, Fear Factory and STP on there too. Maybe also Soulfly????? this is what I get for making a playlist much longer than my usual workout! lol

Depends on what randomly pops up on my mp3 player. I've got Disturbed, Godsmack, Metallica, Pantera, Megadeth, Motley Crue, Guns and Roses...just to name a few good bands :) Definitely keeps me going.

Yep :)

My Metallica playlist is filled with songs that last 5 minutes each, so they're really good to time my workout.

Iron Maiden have good beats to set a pace, but so do the older metallica songs that I mentioned all the way in the beginning :p

---

A little heavier and more modern: Black Label Society.

Indeed they are! Just got a music video collection of theirs and I'm loving their stuff both old and new.

But on topic, I can't work out to anything too heavy. I need something more bouncy or with a good driving beat. Iron Maiden mix spotted with Man O War and some Meatloaf, will do me just fine.

When I was working out in high school, I made myself a cassette tape I'd play on one one those mono speaker old school tape players. Not the boom-box kind, the kind with only the cassette player...yeah, those. Is my age showing? If it's not yet, here's some of the songs I'd have on there:

Lunatic Fringe - Red Rider
Motely Crue - Looks that Kill, Too Young to Fall In Love
Moving in Stereo - Cars
Only Women Bleed - Alice Cooper
Rainbow in the Dark - Dio

OMG - I can't believe this list - I'm totally laughing I can't type!

Anything hard & fast. I usually blast Korn, Metallica, & Disturbed. But I have a ton of music from various people that I usually burn onto CDs and play on random.

My strength/weight training workouts go for either 20 or 25 minutes most of the time. (excluding stretching)

my playlist:

1 Metallica - 2x4
2 Metallica - Enter Sandman
3 Metallica - Sad But True
4 Metallica - Ain't My Bitch
5 Metallica - Whiskey in the Jar
6 Metallica - The Memory Remains

the first 5 songs are all 5 minutes in length, so it's a perfect 'scale' to see how far I am into my workout time.

the 6th song is only 4 minutes long, which is the time used for stretching after my workouts.
