What is up rebels, it’s Jax here… I know shock horror right, in this my first piece I’ll be writing to you all for Rebellious Noise.
I’m guessing we have some avid gym fans and maybe some New Years resolution newcomers on here so I’ve decided to come up with a playlist of songs that I feel you might need when gracing those exercise bikes with your sweaty cracks!
If you are looking for some decent quality and reasonably priced earphones to bang this playlist out with then don’t forget to check out this Rebellious Noise article here.
I’ll be hitting you up with three songs for pre, during and post workout.
Right, we’ve made the decision to head to the gym, but what do we listen to when we’re getting started to get that blood pumping?! Kicking us off
The Prodigy – “Invaders must die”
You feel it… the dirty Sub Bass pumping into your ears gracefully given to you by the British Techno/Rock/Drum and bass godfathers that are The Prodigy. Pounding Drums with the simple yet ever so aggressive Guitar, add in some super auto tuned Vocals and Synths of pure filth…and just like that we are off the ground and running.
Avenged Sevenfold – “Scream”
Shock horror an “Avenged“ song from an “Avenged” fan, but this is my list, so just trust me on it because it will help! The second you hear that ear splitting scream it’s on, chromatic scales, naughty deep bass and The Rev on Drums….follow that up with the lyrics the band themselves class as a strip club anthem and we’re still going, we’re long out the door and on route to the iron paradise.
Lamb Of God – “Laid To Rest”
Pretty self explanatory…. IT’S LAMB OF F**KING GOD!!!
In The Gym
Time to lift things and put them down repeatedly here be a few to get you through.
Die Antwoord – “Pitbull Terrier”
Ahh Die Antwoord you extremely odd characters, don’t ever change because whatever it is you have… it works. HARD. As usual the crazy duo keep it pumping and catchy. Easily one to bang the reps or minutes out to.
Gorillaz – “Feel Good Inc.”
Love them or hate them, The Gorillaz can make some proper ‘feel good’ songs and none more so than this Brit Pop/Hip-Hop mash up using the fabled four chords known for catchy tunes but infusing them with the Old School Rap vibe of De La Soul and I dare you not to hum the Bassline afterwards!
DMC feat. Wayne Static – “Noise Revolution”
DMC firing out lyrics like a machine while Mr. Static brings it to life with his oh so very unique vocal style. This one will get your head bobbing and brain thinking as the lyrics alone make this amazing but the crashing Guitars and Drums make it that oh so much sweeter.
Congratulations you made it!! Can you feel dem GAINZZ. Damn, look at you… Arnie would quake in the shadow that you cause!
Childish Gambino – “3005”
What?.. Doesn’t everyone get their rap name from from a Wu-Tang name generator?! No? just Donald then, this song will lift even the most worn out souls, it’s thumping and has just the right amount of “ughhh in yo face” Rap from the Rapper/Actor/Stand up Comedian….aaand the voice of Miles Morales….ya know the black Spider-Man….some people have all the luck!
Lamb Of God – “Walk With Me In Hell”
As you have made it through hell once more chiseling away at your ‘Adonis’ like body. You can now feel the pound of victory….as I said before IT’S LAMB OF F*CKING GOD!
Queen – “We Are The Champions”
‘Nuff said really
So there it is guys and girls some songs to throw into your mix at the Gym! Remember it’s all in good fun, I’ll catch you all soon.
