There are moments in life when you need to get jacked up. They could be when you’re preparing for a big presentation, going to the gym, getting ready for a big game, going out for a run or just needing to feel the blood and adrenaline rushing through your veins to remind you that you are alive.

Music consisting of a pattern of sounds and silences constructed into an art form is the most consistent way that I know to get amped up. A top 10 list is too restrictive, so I busted out 15 highly diversified, high-octane songs to get you pumped up (in no particular order). Enjoy.

“Killing in the Name of” by Rage Against the Machine

Zach de la Rocha brings an unbridled fire that rages through his lyrics, and his pleas for activism make you want to take on the whole world. With a war waging in Iraq, there is no better time than now to dust off this track and listen to Zach’s poetic guttural overture to think and act for ourselves and not do what we’re told. Killing in the Name

“Blood” by Pearl Jam

“Blood” is Eddie Vedder’s punch in a 1-2 combination that knocks you down to the canvas looking for oxygen. If you want to lift a small Volkswagen off the ground or just need to get amped at the gym, this track will get you there. This is one of the craziest songs I’ve seen live in concert. With the combination of a strobe light in the background and Eddie going ballistic, the crowd was worked up into such a frenzy that the riot police subsequently quelled with a pepper bomb (like a stink bomb but filled with OC gas). Blood

“Rock N Roll Star” by Oasis

Oasis bangs out this masterpiece that reminds you what you really wanted to be as a kid. You’ll want to take your car and drive really far but there’s no easy way out. Rock ‘N’ Roll Star (Album Version)

“For Reasons Unknown” by The Killers

The Killers crank out an anthem of longing for that time when things were right and perfect with that special someone. With one deep breath and one big step, Brandon Flowers will get you up and jumping for when your heart beat like it used too. For Reasons Unknown

“Where the Streets Have No Name” by U2

There is never enough that can be said about this magnum opus. The best is the live version from Boston. You could tear down walls and build and burn down love with this as your soundtrack. Because really, it’s all you can do. Where the Streets Have No Name

“Kickstart My Heart” by Motley Crue

Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars and Tommy Lee created one of the best songs to get you pumped up ever. Their hard-living lifestyle and general decadence was the inspiration for this 80′s anthem.

“In 1987, Sixx suffered a near-fatal heroin overdose. He was declared legally dead on the way to the hospital, but one medic refused to give up and gave Sixx two shots of adrenaline to the heart, bringing him back to life. His few minutes in death were the inspiration for the band’s song “Kickstart My Heart.” [via Wikipedia]

Play it loud enough and you might even be tempted to sky dive naked from an airplane.Kickstart My Heart

“Rock and Roll” by Led Zeppelin

“Rock and Roll” is how the west was won. Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and John Bonham bust onto the scene in 1968 and we’ve been counting our lucky stars ever since. This should be your first track that you listen to when you get behind the wheel of a Porsche, Ferrari or Lamborghini for the first time. Crank it all the way up, stomp the gas pedal to the floorboard and beg the cops to catch you as you wave them the middle finger. They might carry you back to jail, but you won’t forget about the time you rock and rolled. Rock And Roll (2007 Remastered Live Version From The Song Remains The Same)

“Soldier” by Eminem

Eminem’s “Soldier” is a perfect workout song. You’ll get so jacked up that your shoulders will hold so much, won’t budge, never fall or fold up. Even if your collar bones crush or crumble. Soldier

“Hit ‘Em Up” by Tupac

Tupac’s “Hit ‘Em Up” is a lyrical assault on Biggie Smalls. 2Pac accused Biggie of setting him up in regards to his shooting in 1994. What’s better than a revenge song to get you pumped up? Nothing because you’re about to feel the wrath of a menace. Hit ‘Em Up [Explicit]

“Master of Puppets” by Metallica

“Master of Puppets” is one of the first songs I listened to as a teenager. Kirk Hammett and James Hetfield kick off this killer track with what Total Guitar magazine called “the greatest riff of all time.” If it doesn’t get your blood pumping, you’re clinically dead. Master Of Puppets

“Welcome to the Jungle” by Guns N’ Roses

Gun’s N’ Roses gives Metallica a run for their money with “Welcome to the Jungle.” You know where you are? You’re in the jungle, baby. You’re gonna die. There’s not much I can add to top your appetite for destruction. Welcome To The Jungle (Album Version)

“Cochise” by Audioslave

“Cochise” can best be illustrated by watching the music video. Fireworks mixed with a devilish bass line and Chris Cornell’s throaty rage to go and save yourself. Can you ask for much more? Cochise

“Feeling This” by Blink 182

Tom DeLonge, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker lay all out on “Feeling This.” Show me the bedroom floor. Show me the bathroom mirror. “Feeling This” will show you the way you move. And that I got no regret right now. Feeling This

“A Decade Under the Influence” by Taking Back Sunday

Taking Back Sunday delivers with “A Decade Under the Influence.” Adam Lazzara and John Nolan’s screaming back and forth that they got a bad feeling about this takes angst to the next level. Juices will be sure to be flowing. A Decade Under The Influence

“Johnny B. Goode” by Jimi Hendrix

Finally, Jimi Hendrix finishes off with a live rendition of Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode.” Asking the crowd if it’s too loud, they respond “No way!” Ranked by Rolling Stone as the 7th greatest song of all time, the guitar licks and driving beat will have you yelling, “Go, go, Johnny, go, go!” It’s literally a rock-and-roll version of the American dream. For that blessing, we can never give Chuck Berry enough praise. Johnny B. Goode (Live At Berkeley Community Theater, Berkeley, CA)

  6. mira on January 30th, 2008 2:23 pm

    “Asterick”, by M83.

    I don’t suggest listening to this on a daily basis, though. It can get you addicted. And by the end of day, you’ll max out your energy.

  7. David on January 30th, 2008 11:04 pm

    I like those types of songs ‘mira’ where could i find more?

    good stuff..

    Is this your creation?

  8. mira on January 31st, 2008 9:26 am

    Hey David. Cool playlist on your last.FM, especially diggin’ “Pingback”. You’re probably the 3rd person that I personally know who listens to metal. Reminds me of my friend who’s a fan of Dragon Force (or something like that?). :)

    I usually listen to epic/instrumental rock (i.e, Godspeed, you black emperor and Mogwai) to get me either relaxed or pumped.

    I’m not registered anywhere w/ a music playlist, but uh… the closest would be:

  9. Squarehead on February 20th, 2008 6:00 pm

    There are several songs that can get me pumped as hell. I’m surprised this one wasn’t on the list.
    Clubbed to Death by Rob Dougan.
    Gets adrenaline in me every time I listen to it. Man, it’s so awesome.

  10. Larry on February 29th, 2008 12:43 pm

  12. doug on March 11th, 2008 9:32 am

    Nice on the Rage, but check out “Know Your Enemy” and for Eminem “Till I Collapse”. But if you want a song that will make you run through a brick wall and just go crazy listen the “Anger” by Downset.

  13. Myk on March 24th, 2008 10:34 pm

    When Worlds Collide – Powerman5000

  30. Jess on November 9th, 2008 12:43 am

  31. kaizen on November 9th, 2008 5:36 am

    OK I am ’80 hahah


  32. Alex Rochon on November 9th, 2008 2:26 pm

    Perhaps I have inherent bias towards heavy metal, but honestly, why is there no Motörhead on here? This particular list could be made ENTIRELY with Motörhead if necessary. Ace of Spades, Bomber, Iron Fist, Another Perfect Day, Dirty Love, Live To Win, No Class, The Hammer, Iron Horse, (We Are) The Road Crew, Metropolis, Overkill, Limb from Limb, Mean Machine, and Motörhead are good starts…

  33. aidan on November 11th, 2008 4:08 pm

    why the hell isn’t “you’re the best” from the karate kid in here!? thats the best song for getting pumped ever made!!

  34. Victor on November 11th, 2008 4:33 pm

    Thank you for straying from the metal… but you didn’t go far enough.

    The obvious #1 pump up song of all time is Sirius by Alan Parsons Project. Ask Michael Jordan.

  35. bored on November 12th, 2008 9:39 pm

    all right i cant believe no 1 mentioned these i swim, i no what gets me pumped

    all right

    till i collapse by eminem
    im me by lil wayne, (probably not your typical pump up song but, great for my case)
    lose yourself by eminem
    remember the name by fort minor
    stronger by kanye west

    o and dont forget through the fire and flames by dragonforce

  36. sam on December 30th, 2008 1:48 pm

    indestructible- disturbed

  37. nathan on January 20th, 2009 1:28 am

    ok…my best songs to get me pumped up are

    1.redneck-lamb of god
    2. boom-soulfly
    3.supafly-thousand foot krutch
    4.ace of spades-motorhead
    5.killing in the name of-rage against the machine
    6.pulse of the maggots-slipknot
    7.iron man-black sabbath dog-led zepplin
    9.i stand alone-godsmack
    10-nemisis-arch enemy
    11.cowboys from hell-pantera
    12.i wanna rock-twisted sister
    13.the final countdown LOL JKJK
    14eye of the tigerLOL JKJK
    15. in all seriousness, if you wanna get pumped enough to like rip someone’s head off running around the end on an option,

    RIDE THE LIGHTNING BY METALLICA or just have any old metallica, motorhead, or powerman 5000 song in your head. ok with an exception of “whiskey in the bottle” lol

    if you drive a trans am you might wanna hit up some stix or somethin cause you won’t like any of that.

  38. nathan on January 20th, 2009 1:33 am

    “line in the sand” by motorhead
    “fury of the storm” by dragonforce wayyy better than through the fire and the flames.
    “this fire burns” by killswitch engaged
    AND FOR ALL OF YOU DRAGONFORCE FANS, I’D RECOMMEND YOU LISTENING TO “SYMPHONY X” THEY PLAY JUST AS GOOD IF NOT BETTER WITHOUT THE 80′S HAIR METAL VOICE. (not saying anything is wrong with 80′s hair metal, i love it. just not with drums that sound like machine guns and guitars so fast you can’t even see their fingers all you see is a blur)

  39. nathan on January 20th, 2009 1:42 am

    oh yeah, how could i forget, try listening to these bands if you wanna hit the gym,

    bullet for my valentine “the poison” buy the whole album. it’s worth it.

    becoming the bull
    ex’s and oh’s

    any devil driver will get anyone wanting to kill someone.

    nu-metal will get anyone going i don’t care who you are, well any younger kids or young adults.

    for all you old skool people like me (and i’m only 18)
    70′S AND 80′S is the music to have.
    i’m talking
    you gotta be breakin the law with JUDAS PRIEST
    you’ve gotta have the “we’re not gonna take it” attitude with some TWISTED SISTER!

I remember when Taking Back Sunday used to get me pumped, back in the 9th grade when my max bench was 135 lbs. If you’re going to the gym or about to play a football game here are some songs you need on your ipod playlist:

    Valient Thorr- Heatseeker
    Valient Thorr- Red Flag
    Valient Thorr- Showdown
    Metallica- Metal Militia (or anything from their 1st album “Kill Em All”)
    Metallica- Fight Fire With Fire
    Black Label Society- Suicide Messiah
    AC/DC- For Those About to Rock
    Iron Maiden- The Trooper
    Judas Priest- Metal Meltdown
    Lamb of God- Descending
    Mastodon- Blood and Thunder
    Pantera- Mouth of War
    The Sword- Freya

    If you want to get pumped up for something stay in the Metal genre of music thats your best bet.

  49. Anna on April 7th, 2009 5:38 pm

    I personally listen to Led Zeppelin Immigrant Song, Green Day St Jimmy, Basement Jaxx Where’s your Head At, My Chemical Romance House of Wolves. I’m quite mainstream, but hey, whatever works right?

    Feeling This by Blink 182 may be there worst song in the endless line of terrible songs that band has created. The rest of the list was pretty fantastic but this song just comes off as whiny and annoying. Of course if by “pumped up” you meant “pissed off” then I guess this song would accomplish that goal. (Richard Cheese’s version however is epic)

  59. magnum on May 8th, 2009 9:43 am

    I don’t think that I saw “bodies” by drowning pool. That song can get anyone pumped up.

  60. thomas on May 8th, 2009 2:46 pm

    The song that get’s me the most pumped is Backbone by Gojira.

  61. dylan on May 9th, 2009 5:14 pm

    1- The Blister Exists
    2- The Nameless

  71. Some dude on June 23rd, 2009 12:37 am

    Clearly, we all have different versions of “pumped up.” Personally, my “pumped up” soundtrack is a LOT different than my “wanting to rip someone’s head off” soundtrack.

    And in terms of my own “pumped up,” just give me some speed jazz. Metal is great, but speed jazz is the SHIT.

  72. nick on June 23rd, 2009 10:54 pm

    definitely the best song to get me going
    dream on–aerosmith

  73. do on July 1st, 2009 1:40 pm

  75. john henry on July 20th, 2009 7:35 am

  77. Ben Livermore on August 3rd, 2009 11:00 am

    Have a listen to this! It always does it for me.
    It needs to be LOUD!

  78. Courtney on August 4th, 2009 6:53 am

    Okay Okay you guys all have great points, i remember sitting at football games and listening to “Hells Bells”- AC/DC Right before our team ran on the field, the classic hair metal and even new hard rock will get pretty much anyone pumped up.. lol if you want to kill someone. And btw, Breaking Benjamin has better songs than Diary of Jane to get pumped on… I mean if you are pumped to go to bed, all for it.. but, you might want to pick something more along the line of Smile Empty Soul – Bottom of the Bottle, OkGo- Get over it, or HotHotHeat-Bandages before picking that song again.. oh and no one can pass up BassHunter hahaha sorry I’m a techno girl.. DOTA!!! Also Numa Numa gets you pretty hype by Ozone

  98. ian on January 3rd, 2010 10:57 am


  99. denny on January 8th, 2010 1:13 pm

    my favorite– Detroit City- Eminem and Trick Trick

  100. Blak ops on February 7th, 2010 3:48 pm

    here is my top 5
    1. Redneck, Lamb of god-it just makes you wanna keep on goin till you cant no more.
    2. Determined, Mudvayne- this song will chew you up and spit you out, leaving a feeling that you could take on an abrams tank with a plastic spork and a shoelace.
    3.Dig, Mudvayne- each game i listen to this song in the locker room and i find myself immersing into an almos trance like state after.
    4.Blood of the scribe, lamb of god-same as determined.
    5. Lose yourself, Eminem- get a pair of speakers and this song on your ipod, play it and soon eneough youll have a riot once your team hits the field.

  101. danny on February 24th, 2010 4:45 pm

    You forgot “Sabotage” by The Beastie Boys. In my opinion, or just for me, it’s the mother of all songs to get you pumped.

  117. parks on August 14th, 2010 6:55 pm

    i use this on a daily bases at the gym to keep me pumped whilst wieght training it really does help before i had my music at the gym i was lifting say 11 kg dumbell curls anywhere from 10 to 30 reps a time then hitting a wall and going onto something else like shoulder press for a miniute using my back and neck resting my arms then keep switching but now i use my music it seems to help im on 14 kg weights anywhere from 35 to 50 reps then switching and this isnt because ide gotten stronger from doing the curls so i could do this i was only at the gym about 4 days then a trainer at the gym suggested muysic to me i tried and its showed these results so yeah for wieght training try these. by the way i know that these weights arnt much but im 16 i started training like 2 week ago.

    1.redneck-lamb of god
    3.bloodwork-36 crazyfists
    4.supafly-thousand foot krutch
    7.ace of spades-motorhead
    8.killing in the name of-rage against the machine
    9.pulse of the maggots-slipknot
    10.iron man-black sabbath dog-led zepplin
    12.i stand alone-godsmack
    13.nemisis-arch enemy
    14.cowboys from hell-pantera

    17.becoming the bull-atreyu
    18.hand of blood-bullet for my valentine
    19.empty walls-serj tanken
    20.down with the sickness-disturbed

    with me i leave it on repeat all the way through my workout sesh witch is three hours a day down at the local gym this is my weight training one anyway my cardio is alot more relaxed and rythmic to set a pace the music wills you on to keep that pace i use moslty songs like grand theft autumn by fall out boy it works because of the beat and because its an old school song for me things i used to listen to when i was younger so it one of those that reminds you of simpler times and ditracts you from the pain of your workout without stoping you or slowing your pace so for cardio workout music to keep you pumped you need to think of your own like that

  124. CED on October 14th, 2010 8:10 am

    I know my selection is probably going to go unnoticed since there are already tons of them, but here we go. I tried to vary a bit, not going for more then one song per band and trying to give something other then metal songs. But lets face it.. This is what metal is all about :

    Aesthetics of Hate – Machine head (Loop up why this song was written it helps me get pumped when i think about it)
    Contractor – Lamb of God (Best break down ever. Makes me want to destroy.)
    Eyeless – Slipknot (yeah, that was a hard one, lets face it the first 6 songs off the Slipknot EP are just gold.)
    Take this Life – In Flames (In Flames at its best IMO)
    [F] – Maximum the Hormone (Haha, just love these guys… and girl.)
    You Know what You Are – Nine Inch Nails (Need i say more?)
    Sequoia Throne – Protest the Hero (CANADA FTW!!! Haha.)
    Spill! – Stolen Babies (Great sound, cant wait for them to GET OFF THEIR A** AND RELEASE SOMETHING!!!)
    Diablo Rojo – Rodrigo y Gabriela (Goes to proove you dont need more then 2 guitars to make rev someone up)
    Wrong Side – Strapping Young Lad (One word: Skullet)
    Get Inside – Stone Sour (Ahhh.. Corey why’d you have to go soft on us…)
    Waiting for the Beat to Kick In – Scroobius Pip vs Dan Le Sac (Listen now.)
    A Tap Dancers Dilemma – Diablo Swing Orchestra (Get up and dance! ..or whatever…)
    Kopfschuss – Megaherz (Headshot in german, the song is old but worth a listen)
    I Hate Jimmy Page – Mindless Self Indulgence (Haha, Great listen for all you A.D.D. sufferers out there.)
    Jerry was a Race Car Driver – Primus (Go!)
    Annihilation by the Hand of God – Roadrunner United: the All Star Sessions (For all you Death metal fans)
    B******** – Rammstein (God that show was amazing!)
    Chromatic Chimera – Unexpect (For the more hard core A.D.D.’ists)
    (Holy Sh*t) The Droid is Missing – Whats he building in There? (Little known band but worth a listen.)
    Ion – Apocalyptica (Cello headbang!)
    4 Words (to Choke Upon) – Bullet for my Valentine (Pretty in your face song)
    If You Want Peace… Prepare for War – Children of Bodom (Same)

  125. hjohnson11 on October 17th, 2010 9:54 am
