    Running playlist, help

    So I am in need of some new tunes to listen to while I am running, any fellow Cyclone favorites that I should add? Obviously it helps if the song is very fast / up-tempo. Thanks!

    Re: Running playlist, help

    I've found that having songs I like is more important than up-tempo/fast songs.

    If I hear a song that's just blown me away recently, I put that on, even if it's mellower or slow.

    I just need something to put me in a good mood. For running, more often than not, that's a more aggressive/upbeat song, but it doesn't have to be. Just go with what you really enjoy.

    To give a more specific recommendation, the most recent Foo Fighter album is pretty damn awesome for running.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I was just going to start a thread asking for the same help. I agree with the OP that I'm looking for songs that are of a fast, up-tempo variety.

    Re: Running playlist, help

    Basically, I put whatever kinds of songs I would listen to before a game. Stuff that gets me psyched up. For me, that's a lot of Three Days Grace, Breaking Benjamin, a little Eminem, and Skillet.

    Those are some good choices as I have several of those artists already especially Skillet - Monster and Hero are awesome songs.

    Agreed, those are two of my favorite songs from Skillet. Awake and Alive, and Comatose are also legit.

    Metallica is my favorite band and I always enjoy listening to them while I run... And lately I've thrown in a lot of Avenged Sevenfold as well.

    I like anything with a consistent, 4/4 beat when running. Lcd soundsystem, daft punk, win win, the hold steady, japandroids, !!!, fela kuti are all good,

    I know Skillet has been out for awhile but recently came across them in the last year. Thanks for the suggestions, I'll be sure to try them out.

    Re: Running playlist, help

    when I run I listen to a band, whom I met in Louisiana - from Louisiana, called The American Tragedy. Kind of an Indie Band (which never has been my taste in music)but the sounds they make are perfect (in my opinion) for running. Keeps pretty good time. Check them out on youtube or go to cdbaby.com or just do a search - you can listen to samples of their songs.

    As SDillion500 stated: Anything with a good 4/4 time works well.
