Best Rock Songs For Working Out: Q-Tease Amanda’s Picks


Mandatory Credit: Ker Robertson, Allsport, Getty Images

I’m very particular about what I listen to when I work out. I prefer rock songs that tend to have more aggression. I spend time running to relieve stress, along with lifting. I cannot listen to slower songs just because I tend to feel myself get lazy, and I don’t want to defeat the purpose of my workout.

Below is a list of my top picks on my playlist for the gym. Your best bet is creating a playlist if you are as picky as me, or else random club songs will sneak up on you at the gym. Not that it’s a bad thing, but I’d prefer not to fall off the treadmill while attempting to dance.

Enjoy these songs and rock out while you work out:

  1. Adjustments” – Smile Empty Soul
  2. White Rabbit” – Egypt Central
  3. Comin’ In Hot” – Hollywood Undead
  4. Monster” – Skillet
  5. So What I Lied” – Sick Puppies
  6. The Beautiful People” – Marilyn Manson
  7. Realign” Godsmack
  8. I Think Bad Thoughts” – Danko Jones
  9. Gorgeous Nightmare” – Escape the Fate
  10. Welcome to the Family” – Avenged Sevenfold

By the way, Godsmack, Skillet, and Egypt Central will all be at Q-Ruption in August. Don’t be afraid to add all each of the bands’ songs to your iPod. You could even make a Q-Ruption playlist!
