Favourite Running Tunes?

Hi all

ACDC, Royal Blood, Undertones and many more are helping me along. Do you have favourite tracks to recommend?🎧🎼

I listen to AC/DC, velvet revolver, meatloaf, Bon Jovi and Eminem mainly whilst running with one track from Bryan Adams thrown in "run to you"

I've chucked in 'praise you' fatboy slim and 'Don't stop me now' by Queen, 'Born to be Wild' for good measure 😂

Mines all dance music with a beat! Loving zombie nation by kernkraft and a bit of faithless!

They are old tunes from the late 90's early 00's.

All My Life by Foo Fighters works for me. And if the "Done, done, onto the next one" part kicks in at the end of a run it makes my day! 😀

Love the Foos! I had 'Sound of Silence' by Disturbed kick in on my cool down! Magic moment!!

I never even considered adding the Foo's in, all my life would make an awesome running track.

Good call

Old school rave music 🎶 tried playing some to my kids telling them how daddy once used to dance to this in random abandoned warehouses they now think I'm nuts 🥜

Kids for you! They don't know the meaning of 'total lack of health and safety'😂

I made a Ryan Adams playlist for 5/2 and I also love Peter Kay's Carshare on Spotify

I just did W5R3. Since it was a continuous 20 minute run, I spent the whole of yesterday looking for 20-minutes of good, fast-paced and motivating songs. This is what I ended up with, and really helped even when I was super tired after about 12 minutes:

The New Workout Plan (Kanye West)

Good Life (Kanye West ft. T-Pain)

Black Skinhead (Kanye West)

Champion (Kanye West)

Touch the Sky (Kanye West ft. Lupe Fiasco)

Move B**ch (Ludacris ft. Mystical & I-20)

Make sure it's played in that order. Really really helps

Bit of a Kanye theme going there! Great idea though, will manage my tunes for my next run. Thanks😊

Yep, it's Kanye overloaded, but some of his beats make you forget the exhaustion from a run

System of a down, the offspring or pierce the veil make you think you are running fast even when you are not!
