What music makes you push yourself harder? Here are some of my current favourites (although my list is constantly changing):
Flux Pavillion Bass Cannon (xKore Drumstep Redux)
Nerd Rage Fast Dubstep
Storm Time To Burn
Hanzel und Gretyl Komm Zu Uns
Hatebreed I Will Be Heard
Korn Here to Say Dirty Version
Snake River Conspiracy Lovesong
Cheesy but Fast
Addicted Diamond My Sharona
Andrew Spencer Zombie
RPM 17 Hot Stuff
The Immortals Theme From Mortal Kombat (Encounter The Ultimate)
Warp Brothers Smells Like Teen Spirit (Voc 2 The Floor club mix)
I don't need music to make me work hard....
I don't listen to music when I run but I do occasionally find myself singing the chorus to My Body by Young the Giant on the runs/races when I am struggling a bit
I'll listen to music when i run on my own but find it can put me off a bit. Perhaps because i'm listening to post hardcore/crossover metal.
I listen to music on my long runs, so I can stop listening to the voices in my head telling me 'stop and go home', 'you're in pain, stop and go home'. Btw, I only have voices in my head when I'm running - I'm not mental (well I think not).
Paramore usually makes me pick up my stride, and a bit of old school Shed Seven
I don't usually listen to music when I'm running outdoors (only the treadmill) but the best song I've come across is Animal by Nickelback. Terrible band, but it's a remarkably good running song.
Name your power songs then 'Sussex Runner' - or are you going to flake out with the 'I don't listen to music' (if so, clear off of this thread - you have no valid input and are wasting peoples time reading your drivel).
I wouldn't even call your list music. When I was your age I was listening to The Pistols and The Clash. Proper tunes!
Music is down to individual tastes, for me The Clash and Sex Pistols are easy listening - good for in the pub. Neither have the bass nor power required for pushing yourself during training. I'm sure my grandad would enjoy the aggression in your listed bands but they are weak motivators compared to the tunes that I listed.
Sussex Runner I think Ben fancies you.
Vomitting... the only true sound track to a decent session.

Yeah, he's clearly got a thing for older men
bv, I haven't heard of any of the bands you listed, but you are probably a youngster. My heavy metal favourites are Iron Maiden, White Snake, AC DC, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Judas Priest, Metallica and Motorhead. Status Quo are perfect for a steady pace training run.
I never wear my I pod in races, and am glad that more and more events are banning them. I'm also wearing it less and less in training, and concentrating more on my heart rate readings to make me push harder.
Fossil hunting can be fun!....
But as you tend to find fossils on stony beaches doesn't that make it difficult to run ?
I enjoy a bit of Rodrigo Y Gabriella (rock inspired classical guitar) on a tempo run, sets a good rythm and is nice and up-beat. A bit of Pendulum works there too.
Intervals /high intensity training has to be some metal (Metallica, Iron Maiden, Rammstein, Pantera, Machine Head, Rage Against the Machine, System of a Down) too many to name all of them.
Then there's the inevitable dance/ house music the spinning instructor puts on (no choice over that one) but it's loud and high tempo so it does the job.
Showing your age Sussex Runner, NIN (Nine Inch Nails) and Korn have been around sice the start of the 90s.
For me hard intervals are done in the gym. Switch on Daybreak or Loose Women and get through the session as quickly as possible, and then get the hell out of there. What More motivation can there be?
I caught a couple of seconds of Korn on the dowload featival. Beavis and Butthead jokeband surely.
How can the younger generation be so uncool with their music. I like a few new bands but dumbass shit like Ben likes. Fuck me!!
