Default Best work out songs?

I'm really not sure if this is the right place for this thread but here goes....

I am in dire need of new work out music... my iPhone crashed and I lost most of my collection I'm into a lot of different types of music but it has to be upbeat/fast to keep me going... Anyone have any good suggestions? What's your favourite?

I'm very fond of old, rock and roll! ZZ top, Tina Turner, BTO, Elton John, and so on. But I also toss in some country, Garth Brooks, "standing outside the fire."

Whitesnake, the "cars", J giels band, (centerfold), Smoke on the water, "Sweet Home Alabama". Lynard Skynard.

Amazon music, is awesome! I've got Gloria Gaynor, Golden Earring, Chris Ledaux, AC/DC, Toby Kieth, Meatloaf! It's all there!

I have pretty eclectic taste in music, especially considering I'm over 50 (which explains some of my choices.

For warm ups: Wild is the Wind (the Bowie version for me)
Still Life- The Horrors
And anything by Air (really liking Alone in Kyoto lately.

For work outs:
Celebrity Skin- Hole
Give Me Back My Man- The B-52's
Fancy- Iggy Azalea
Parliament/Funkadelic- One Nation (Under a Groove)
Seeds of Love- Tears for Fears
This is Not a Love Song- PiL
Stupid Girl- Garbage
Anything by Daft Punk I'm obsessed with French pop music (I even like Vanessa Paradis)
There are so many songs I truly love, but these are some of the ones I have on my work out playlist at the moment.

PS You can skip some of them if you're offended by explicit lyrics

Oops almost forgot my absolute current favourite
Left Hand Free- Alt-J Just LOVE this song (if you like Beck you'll like this)

I really despise both Eminem and Kanye West, but "Til I Collapse" and "Stronger" are two of my go-to workout jams. I also have a *lot* of 80s pop.

I am currently digging a workout mashup of Blurred Lines and Ice Ice Baby. The shame factor is high, but its so good.

Other favorites:
Ghost - Ella Henderson
Sorrow - Bad Religion
The Decline - NOFX (this is my go to when a workout is inching by sloooooowly. It's almost 20 min long, so you get on, sing along, and by the time you're through it, a good portion of your time has gone by).
La La La - Naughty Boy ft Sam Smith
Shut Up and Dance - Walk the Moon
Titanium - David Guetta and Sia

I heard Nicki Minaj is doing remix to the Maroon 5 Sugar song. That might have potential.

I was introduced to it in a spin class. Such a good beat for heavy cardio.
