(wasn’t sure whether to put this here or in the Watercooler, but this sub needs more love so went with this :thinking: feel free to move it)

Everyone I know has that go-to song–or songs–for a new max attempt, new rep PR, or just grinding out that last set when you’re fighting to just stay on your feet. What are yours?

Personally, I get so in the zone that I forget to put music on more sessions than not, but when I remember, I have a few that I go back to time and again.

I know naming the band is gonna put some people off, but Emperor’s New Clothes by Panic! At The Disco is such a good hype song. If you really get into the character of it, it adds at least two inches to your self-perceived penis size.
I like deadlifting heavy to Bleed It Out, by Linkin Park.
A lot of my training sessions are done with Hollywood Undead in the background because so many of their songs have that cocky, self-confidence-booster feel, but a couple of favorites are City and Party By Myself.
And lastly, if I just need something fast-paced and heavy in the background to keep the pulse pounding, I keep Devin Townsend/Strapping Young Lad on shuffle. His screaming/growling is great, but his cleans are just beautiful.

I used to have a ton of songs downloaded to my iPod shuffle (yes I’m old school) but recently downloaded the FitRadio app to my iPhone and pick DJ’s from there.

My “emergency mode” music is the beginning of the Strapping Young Lad - City album.

If the first half of that album can’t get me going, I’m toast
