A Little Party Never Killed Nobody - Fergie

This song isn't just perfect for partying, it's perfect for working out too! After all, a little gym session never killed nobody neither.

Another classic about vanquishing foes (as long as your foes are the government or any other oppressive force).

Harder Better Faster Stronger - Daft Punk

Daft Punk are masters of creating beats to get you moving, and this track is perhaps their best for helping you get your rear in gear.

You're the Best - Joe Esposito

Maybe the single greatest "workout montage" song in movie/television history, and deserves to be on the list simply because of its use in It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Welcome to the Jungle - Guns N Roses

This song is downright electric, and gets our bodies moving every time we listen to it! Your dumbbells will never know what hit them!

Move Bitch - Ludacris

Tell every weight you lift to "move, bitch" as you pump! It feels great!

TKO - Justin Timberlake

You can always count on JT for a hot beat, and TKO definitely does not disappoint! Vibe along with Justin while you sweat.

Praise You - Fatboy Slim

This song, along with its classic music video, are made to get your body moving, and what better place to move than at the gym!
# 9

Freak on a Leash - Korn

There are few genres that get us into beast mode quite like hard rock, and this late 90s classic from Korn definitely fits the bill.
# 8

Call on Me - Eric Prydz

While we definitely believe that Valerie by Steve Winwood is the superior song overall, Call on Me is faster tempo and more repetitive, making it better for the gym.
# 7

Burn - Ellie Golding

Ellie Golding gets our feet moving every time. This is a great tune for hitting the treadmill or elliptical.
# 6

Seven Nation Army - The White Stripes

One of the hardest bass riffs ever, gets us completely amped up every time we hear it! A Seven Nation Army cannot hold us back!
# 5

Mr. Brightside - The Killers

This amazing indie pop song from the mid 2000s has an awesome upbeat tempo and is perfect for running.
# 4

Enter Sandman - Metallica

Another rock classic! If you have trouble working out to this song, it's only because you'll be too busy thrashing your head and making the "rock on" symbol with your hands to focus on your exercises.
# 3

Daft Punk is Playing at My House - LCD Soundsystem

Daft Punk is so amazing that even songs about them are great! LCD Soundsystem have crafted an incredibly fun song that is perfect for grooving along.
# 2

Eye of the Tiger - Survivor

Without Eye of the Tiger, the training montages on Rocky would be much less memorable. Play this tune while at gym, and you basically turn into Rocky himself!
# 1

Lose Yourself - Eminem

One of the best hip hop songs ever for hitting the gym. Just listen to Em while you workout and totally lose yourself.
