    Looking for additions to my running/workout music playlist. I have 295 songs in my playlist but always looking for more. The only criteria is that it's high energy. I lean towards the cassette era of classic rock (and older) but also have artists like:

    George Clinton
    Bob Marley
    Robert Randolph
    Harry Connick Jr.
    The Carolina Chocolate Drops
    Spyro Gyra
    Jeff Lorber
    Herbie Hankock
    David Sanborn
    Bruce Cockburn
    Big Smith
    The Indigo Girls
    Keller and the Keels
    Old Dominion (not a big fan of country but one high energy song at a time ain't bad!)

    So, come on. Whatcha got?

    Workout? You mean like in the shop? And what is this running? When I run, it is away from something that wants to hurt me and I don’t have time to listen to music.

    Seriously, I like a lot of those musicians and groups. But not for workout purposes.

    In keeping with the style of music you listed:
    Taj Mahal
    Tower of Power
    Average White Band
    KC and the Sunshine Band

    I lean towards more hard rock stuff, so my faves include more 70s classic rock with the right tempo for running footfalls. As Sac Arrow said, your listed groups are good stuff, but too mellow to drive me in an aerobic workout.

    And, of course, my favorite weight-loss song ever: "I'm Losin' You," by Rod Stewart.

    Most artists have a song or two that's high energy enough for me to workout to regardless of how mellow their typical music is.

    i.e.

    Keller and the Keels - Hepped up on Goof Balls


    Harry Connick, Jr who is typically mellow Sanatra style - Smile


    Bruce Cockburn - Sunwheel Dance

    One I forgot and that is a lot of fun to work out to. (And was the "procession of the bride" as my lovely lady walked up the aisle...not kidding)

    My workout playlist is a lot of Rage Against the Machine and Avenged Sevenfold. Either of these songs starts playing and I'm running through brick walls and throwing weights across the room.





    I love some of those artists you posted, but I can't imagine working out listening to such mellow songs.

    Edited to add:

    This song is great for when I have to do slower tempo stuff.

    Fabulous Disaster
    The Lillingtons
    NOFX

    Dead to Me
    Rocket from the Crypt
    Toys that Kill

    Nauga,

    All the respect in the world for 70s and 80s classic rock - that's what I'm usually streaming in the car. For workout purposes, I'd suggest maybe dipping a toe in EDM since the BPMs are well north of 120 for the most part. Try David Guetta (anything from his Nothing But The Beat Albums (both of them)), Nicky Romero, Martin Garrix, Zedd and the late/great Avicii.

    A good friend who is a hard core runner really likes Girl Talk - high energy DJ who mixes together ~20 second samples of mainly hip hop tracks. Admittedly great for running, but definitely a hard PG-13 and NSFW. I don't want to link it here lest anyone accidentally play it in an inappropriate setting, but if you go to YouTube and search "Girl Talk" the full Feed the Animals album should come up first.

    Definitely five finger death punch. If you want to start out with FFDP light, Start with their renditions of bad company and house of the rising sun, then move into some of their original stuff

    SiriusXM has additional web streamed channels and I often use the BPM work out one. It repeats a bit too much for me but crap does time fly by with that kinda music.

    Honestly, I only choose my own music when I'm doing endurance riding on my bike. Which I haven't done for a couple years. These days, I just listen to the music at the gym, and watch the true crime TV stations in front of me.

    I watched this horrid zombie British eat flesh movie that I sort of kind of enjoyed even though it isn't normally my thing, but they had this techno beat cardio workout drum mix that was totally the bomb playing, and even though they were eating human flesh, I was so totally rocking out on it.

    That is pretty bad. I've done two Oktoberfests in Germany when I was stationed there, and being drunk didn't improve it.

    Glad there's more than one of us! Buckethead is amazing (and eclectic). All instrumental guitar. Everything from hard rock and metal to techno and soothing and acoustic.

    Some of my favorites:
    Florrmat :

    Project Little Man:

    Ourselves:


    There are literally hundreds of albums and numerous compilations as well. I don't know how one artist comes up with so much (and sustains the energy for the length of these tracks).

    I do like Jet. I was going to post this one in the other music thread but it fits here too. They love it in Temescal when you roll by in the Camry blasting this. :D
