I run pretty much everyday and have been running to the same crystal method album for about 2 years now. I think it´s time for a change. Any suggestions?

With a solid bass riff. Rhythmic. Metallica, Rush, ZZ Top, REO, Van Hagar...that's the ticket

Rock/Hard Rock ... something like Godsmack, (when working with weights or boxing) boxing

Disco (hahaha) or I don't know .. something upbeat when I'm running (even 70's or 80's music).

Country, Indie, ... mixing it up with some alternative when walking.

Mellow when stretching and such

I totally agree. I like to have aggressive music when I exercise. Godsmack, Metallica, Alice in Chains, Linkin Park, Janes Addiction, and Drowning Pool are some of the bands on my iPOD for running.

Depends how hard I wanna ride. But usually good old rock as others said something good loud and heavy gotta have a good fast beat for me unless I'm hill climbing then good pounding drums

I like to exercise to dance music from the early two thousands. Running wise I find I am partial to a bit of Queen these days. I like singing along to it when running. It makes me enjoy it more

When doing weights or kickboxing, I always listen to hard rock or old punk, with Metallica, AC/DC, GnR, Ramones, Sex Pistols,Dead Kennedys, Dead Boys,The Damned, Black Sabbath, Ronnie James Dio, Deep Purple being some my favorites. It really gets the adrenaline flowing!! When I am running, it can be anything from Pink Floyd to Johnny Cash to Classical. Lot of Pink Floyd lately!

Its usually something heavy for me, anything from Rammestein to QOTSA, or else I like to listen to the Prodigy. Anything upbeat or heavy.

Had a nice long run with The Very Best this afternoon. They have two great free mixtapes out, plus a full length album. The first is Esau Mwamwaya and Radioclit are The Very Best. It was free for a while, but all the links I have found are dead. The new mixtape is called SuperMom. It can be found here. The price is an email.

I start off doing that exercise where you move your arms from side to side and the same with your legs in time to Bill Haley and the Comets doing Rock Around The Clock, then I do push ups and sit ups to Chuck Berry's Sweet Little 16, Everley Bros, Temptation, then I do lying on your back and bicycling to the Eagles doing Take It Easy, then I sort of push against the wall with my arms to ACDC doing Highway to Hell and Steppenwulf playing Born to be Wild, then I finish off running around the house or on the spot to Huey Lewis and the News doing The Power of Love. The whole thing is about 20 mins every day and cheaper than going to the gym. Another advantage I don't have to wear a device just play the music system loud. I can vary the stuff but this is this week's selection.
