I saw Bad Brains at the Warfield in San Francisco back in 89. Probably the best live show I saw in that era. Better than the RH Chili Peppers, Primus, Metallica or Faith No More.

After almost 30 years, I've been listening to them at the gym. Works nicely. arrrh


How about you?

I love how in the video above, the chick in the red shirt sings along the whole time sitting on the stage.

When I run, I'll listen to anything with a steady beat. I usually match my pace to the music. Things that I listen to more often: Frightened Rabbit, Augustines, Abba (I'm not kidding, it's great running music), Clap Your Hands Say Yeah...etc.

I don't want happiness by halves, nor is half of sorrow what I want. Yet there's a pillow I would share, where gently pressed against a cheek like a helpless star, a falling star, a ring glimmers on the finger of a hand.

I didn't watch the whole thing to see if HR (the singer) did his signature backflip or not.



Those guys were crazy animals. With a positive Rastafarian message clothed in pure punk menace.

My time is spent doing cardio work almost exclusively, so keep that in mind with this.

I keep two separate playlists; "Trail Mix" is what I use for the generic time spent biking or jogging, and "Angry Music" is when I need a little more motivation to go the extra mile. They're both mostly harder, driving symphonic metal, with a decent amount of overlap, but the latter goes the extra mile.

My favorites include Planet Hell (Nightwish), Fools of Damnation (Epica), some Rage Agains the Machine, a decent amount of Delain, and others. I mentioned those songs specifically by name because the pacing of them is just perfect for my stride; every beat is a footstep, making it very easy to pass the time.

Great topic, btw. I love finding new music.

Since 1985 (!) I've been lifting weights to Judas Priest's Defenders of the Faith. Over the years I've tried to branch out in an effort to shake things up, but goddamn—this is the soundtrack for playing with heavy things.

When my sons got into lifting I solemnly instructed them in this most basic tenet, and they both purchased the album for their workouts.

Just hearing this first track makes my skeleton hungry for iron...

I've watched those bad brains at cbgbs clips a tonne of times. Really captures something about punk rock beautifully. I love sitting on the stage myself!

There's a magnificent fishbone concert at the warfield up on YouTube I think as well - were you there Stymie?


As for exercise, a nice steady rhythm is all I need. A lot of reggae/dub fits the bill.

Man you put me in the mood.

Us Festival 83 is streaming on Amazon Prime right now.

Guess which is the best part? Yeah, Judas Frikking Priest!

Time to add them to the gym playlist. I was always partial to Screaming for Vengeance!

I run three times a week but never with earplugs in, because I want to hear the forest and the quietness of the outdoors.

Ow and my chances of survival also greatly improve when I can hear approaching traffic..

Pretty much the Chemical Brothers.

Maybe some Fatboy Slim, as long as it doesn't change tempo too much. Oh, and Moby, Prodigy, Underworld, Crystal Method, Daft Punk, and a little bit of Propellerheads for variety.

Great list of artists you got there Matt!
I grew up listening to those tunes and they are well suited for a good workout, even after 15-20 years.

If you're interested in more 90's electronic music: Leftfield, Orbital, Groove Armada and Junkie XL also made some great tunes back then.

These are all great! I probably have one or two of each of these somewhere in my lists.... I'll also sometimes throw in N.E.R.D.'s Rock Star (Jason Nevins remix) for some heavier beats, and Filter have one or two really good ones. (Oh, and Crystal Method + Filter, (Can't You) Trip Like I Do = win!)

Edit: specificity

+1 for the electronica. Crystal Method's "Vegas" is one of my all-time favorite albums.

To add to the general theme of the thread:
