“Too Drunk to Fuck,” either Nouvelle Vague or Dead Kennedys
For those who will start “racing” at 5AM, and possibly not stop from the night before, just remember what the end of the race will feel like.
“Obsession” is the type of song that you sing along to and don’t realize you’ve ran your heart out.
“Breath Stretch Shake It,” Mase
Ma$e, everyone feels like a run pimp star with that song!Â
“Burden,” Mute Math
When he chants – “I just can’t hold it together… ” at the end I just bust through the wall. Darren King is a GOD.
“Pon de Floor,” Major Lazer
Its dirty, grimy rhythms and lyrics mash for a perfection of motivation while treading cement.
“<3," Butterfly Bones
It's the most uplifting damn song on the planet. Makes you wanna smile and run all day long...until you get a leg cramp. Then you'll probably wanna stop.
Anything at all by Tanlines is a catalyst of encouragement. Makes you wanna get all Beyonce on everyone’s asses, if that was possible (would probably take a lot of multi-tasking abilities).
“Home,” LCD Soundsystem
Great message, positive attitude, and who can resist some LCD Soundsystem? Just saying.
The U.K.’s Hadouken! are fast, heavy, beat driven new rave. M.A.D. can get you energized for a run or give you that last push to the end.
“We Are Rockstars,” Does It Offend You, Yeah?
It’s not quite punk and it’s not quite dance, but it’s perfect, fast paced running song with lots of energy.
“Day N’ Night (Crookers Remix),” KiD CuDi
Nothing gets you moving like a remix with a great beat and cool effects and that’s exactly what Crookers will bring to your run with their remix of KiD CuDi’s “Day N’ Night”
“Empty Causes,” Bad Religion
No running mix is complete without some great classic punk. It’s aggressive, it’s fast and it makes you feel like you’re running for a cause.
“Stronger,” Britney Spears (DUH)
