By now we have reached that point in the new year where our resolutions to get in better shape are on the back burner and the gym has fewer check-ins on Facebook. It’s OK, I’m guilty of this as well but, I have a simple solution!

I’ve put together a playlist of some great songs from my own iPod that always gets me pumped during my workouts. It’s a mix of some awesome rock music, punk and hip hop. Have a listen and maybe some of these could be added to your own playlist!

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Foo Fighters[/lastfm] - White Limo


The first time I heard this song I wanted to run a marathon! THIS is a rock song.

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Pennywise[/lastfm] - Society


[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]New Found Glory[/lastfm] - Don’t Let Her Pull You Down


This is a good upbeat pop punk song to workout to. Also, it features KROQ’s very own Styrker in the video!

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Bloc Party[/lastfm] - Helicopter


I can’t be the only one that noticed them posting on their Facebook pictures from practice. New Bloc Party album in the works?? I certainly hope so!

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Refused[/lastfm] - Deadly Rhythm


This is off their album The Shape Of Punk To Come. This album will forever stay on my iPod.

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Girl Talk[/lastfm] - Feed The Animals


This whole album is great to workout to. He does these amazing mash ups of songs from all types of different styles of music.

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rancid[/lastfm] - Maxwell Murder


Very short and fast Rancid song. Check out dat bass!

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Strokes[/lastfm] - Juicebox


[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Black Keys[/lastfm] - Lonely Boy

All you gotta do is watch this video, learn the dance moves and incorporate this in your aerobics routine!

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Roots[/lastfm] - The Seed (2.0) Ft. Cody ChesnuTT


[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Skrillex[/lastfm] - Bangarang


New to the KROQ playlist and everyone is diggin’ it. Get your dub step on at the gym.

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Walkmen[/lastfm] - The Rat


If you’re a drummer, play this song a few times! Now that’s a work out!

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Travis Barker[/lastfm]/[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]DJ AM[/lastfm] – Fix Your Face Vol. 2 (Coachella 09)


It’s still very much a bummer to know we can never get a brand new mix tape from the late DJ AM, but at least we will always have this amazing piece of work when he teamed up with Travis Barker. This is the set they played at Coachella 2009.

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beastie Boys[/lastfm] - Body Movin’ (Fatboy Slim Remix)

One of my top remixes to listen to.

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Big D And The Kids Table[/lastfm] - Myself


[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Blink-182[/lastfm] - Heart’s All Gone


I remember how excited I was when they released this song. the second new Blink-182 song to be released from Neighborhoods. I immediately put this on my iPod and had it on repeat at the gym.

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rise Against[/lastfm] - Give It All

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]NOFX[/lastfm] - She’s Nubs


This song makes me laugh and want to run at the same time.

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dead Kennedys[/lastfm] - Chemical Warfare


Pretty recently I had worked out to the whole Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables album. Not only was it a great workout, but I was also inspired to cover a lot of those songs.

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Descendents[/lastfm] - Silly Girl


[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Metallica[/lastfm] - Fuel



[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Bronx[/lastfm] - False Alarm


[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Weezer[/lastfm] - Why Bother?


[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kid Cudi[/lastfm] - Cudi Spazzin’


[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Sublime[/lastfm] - Seed


Thus concluding my playlist of songs.  You think this playlist will make you sweat?! Try it out! leave some comments with some of your personal favorite songs to work out too!
