Any suggestions of good music to listen to while lifting weights?

Blood Bros, I'd reccomend the first one[/rul] but the [url=http://maddecent.com/blog/blood-bros-mix-part-2-heaven-2-hell]second (http://maddecent.com/blog/blood-bros-first-blood) one isn't bad either. It's basically a mix tape of 80's music, and its genre is training. Each is about 40 minutes, so they last a while.

This (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AO43p2Wqc08) has to be mentioned, just to get it out of the way.

On a more serious note, it depends on your music tastes. Those (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAjR4_CbPpQ&ob=av3e) two (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8pLwPHH0Xs) pieces by Daft Punk might work, but Anvil of Crom (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHfE682mm3c) might as well. Rocky (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvQkl7qa6RQ&feature=related) movies (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q57qB6Kwroo&feature=related) are full of good workout music as well. There's this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9D-QD_HIfjA) piece as well.

I like anything with high beats per minute. My current play list is very varied from Ska to metal to rap and some other stuff in there too
Goldfinger (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udUCjJphE-0)
Rise against (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhldbymXK-8&ob=av2e)
Fort Minor (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5YJfPBqPNE)
Iron Maiden (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbT2lHtYtEQ)
Jurassic 5 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1WzNVU-BXM)
Crystal Method (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A12-KN5UijA)
Underworld (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10q96IPlm70)
Dropkick Murphy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10agPj0Vzu4)

There is a lot more, but hopefully that give your some were to start.

High BPM music is better for cardio workouts in my opinion - I especially like fast trance.

With weight lifting, it'd depend on what exactly you're doing - high BPM stuff is good for low weight high reps, not so good for the inverse.

When you screwed up your reps or don't care, listen to educational kids songs like Sesame Street or Schoolhouse Rock. You feel less tired when counting by 5's.

I once got the whole weight room of a hotel in on a round of Conjunction Junction.

That's true, also mostly what I do. Probably should have added that.

For lifting weights - Doom Metal, or other slower-paced heavy music. :smallcool:
