Default Kickin' Work Out Music

Alternachicks & Alternadudes have such great taste in music, it's no wonder that people pass by and post asking us all about our favorite workout tunes!

So post! Tell us about a favorite workout song. Or ten Come back anytime and add more if you come across something good.

This will provide a space for anyone wanting to begin a playlist, update an old one, or just find something great and new. It'll keep us all moving to some good music.

This will be Sticky'd (Thanks Mauvaisroux!) so that it can keep being added onto and modified.

Well, let's start this off!

I usually like to start my workouts off with:

The Distance - Cake
Everybody Knows You Cried Last Night - The Fratellis
Move Away - The Killers

Slow-er things, that I think help me built up. Then I move on to:

Bring It On - Horror Pops
Random - Lady Sovereign
One More Time - Daft Punk
Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger - Daft Punk
Around the World - ... Daft Punk ()
Absolutely Nothing - Lily Allen
Everythings Just Wonderful - Lily Allen
Sugar We're Going Down - Fall Out Boy
Dance, Dance - Fall Out Boy
Breaking the Habit - Linkin Park
Crawling in the Dark - Hoobastank
Hash Pipe - Weezer
Killing in the Name Of - Rage Against the Machine

Or somewhat, not always in order. And I like slowing it down with:

Heavens a Lie - Lacuna Coil
Ultima Esperanza - Dresden Dolls

I'm sure I'll be adding as I build up my playlist.

Talking Kick'n Country/Rock

Since I am from ND I have been subjected to a lot of country and some of it really makes me want to shake my butt! I love to country 2step and jitter-bug and I know after 4 mins of dancing on the floor to any of these songs I am pretty winded so it helps me going on the elliptical aswell. So I figured I would add my "30 Min Cardio" playlist on my Ipod. I hope this all helps you guys!

1. Boots On- Randy Houser
2. She's Country-Jason Aldean (My future husband! 8P )
3. My Maria- Brooks and Dunn
4. Feel that Fire- Dierks Bentley
5. Fishin' in the Dark- Nitty Gritty Dirt Band or Emerson Drive version is great too
6.Right where I need to be- Gary Allan
7. Gun Powder and Lead- Miranda Lambert
8. Life is a Highway- Rascal Flatts
9. If you're going through ****- Rodney Atkins
10. Settlin'- Sugarland
11. Awful, Beautiful Life- Darryl Worley
12. Thank God I'm a Country Boy- billy Dean
13. Quit Comin Around- 32 Below
14. Make a Little Noise- 32 Below
(My cool down Song)
