Hey fellow bloggers. On a some what slow day asside the MBB game i thought id ask you guys a favor. I want to know what you guys are listen to to get pumped up for a big game, workout etc. I'm putting together a video about last football season and im looking for some awsome audio to add to it. Anything works.
OT pump up music
Flogging Molly (Black Friday Rule, Devil's Dance Floor) and Young Dubliners (Rocky Road to Dubline, Follow Me up to Carlow) make regular appearances for me. Also, "Shot Through the Heart and You're to Blame" is a great way to get psyched. And over "The Victors" is always the last thing I play before heading out.
I like Flogging Molly. "Drunken Lullabies" is another good one by them, it has a fast beat that pumps me up.
Fix your grammer/spelling and repost before you get ripped to shreds.
Get the fuck off my blog.
hates this song.... our 5 star Defensive tackle Ondre Pipkins seems to enjoy it.
I don't get why so many on the blog hate it. Its not like it should take the place of The Victors, but it isn't something to be embarrassed about.
"All These Things That I've Done" - The Killers. It really gets me in the zone.
Also, "Undead" by Hollywood Undead really gets the juices flowing, but that one might be a bit explicit for a hype.
Metallica.... "Seek and Destroy"
Scanning the scene
in the city tonight
You’re looking for blue
to start up a fight
There’s a mental defect
in your brains
But it is nothing new
we know it drives you insane
One thousand yards
way is there
Bailed us out
Seek and Destroy
Seek and Destroy
Seek and Destroy
Seek and Destroy
I listen to one song, and one song only: Seven Nation Army
"Don't Stop" by Innerpartysystem is pretty hype-y.
Roy Jones Jr. - Cant Be Touched
Wow does Roy Jones Jr go hard. Dude was a beast.
that's the funnest boxing highlights I've ever seen - dude was nasty with so much attitude. I lost $400 when I bet my heart that AA's James Toney would beat him.
In no particular order, my playlist includes:
Power- Kanye West
'Til I Collapse + Won't Back Down- Eminem
Hell's Bells- AC/DC
All of the Lights- A lot of people
For the Ohio football game, I include Seven Swans by Sufjan Stevens (from Brian's 11 Swans post)
Get Up With the Sickness- DJDoYou (Mash-up song)
I have a lot more and it changes but those are a few.
Like the Muse, my personal fav is Hysteria though. Great bass line.
Also love almost anything Rise Against for pump up music.
All I want by A Day to remember would be great especially with last season. give it a listen and tell me that it doesn't scream 2011 season.
All you need is Rick Astley and you'd have the perfect playlist.
Recently I've been thinking that it would be cool to pair up some defensive highlights with Face to the Floor by Chevelle.
Doing taxes while listening to the album.
thanks this really helps alot
Your hand in mine - by Explosions in the sky.
Im shipping up to boston by dropkick murphy's
The I Love you Denard song from the other thread will now be my pump up music. It will get me through anything.
I don't necessarily choose to listen to it, but "I Burn" by Toadies seems to come up in my playlist just as I'm wanting to die (usually the 3 minute mark in my run...) and pushes me past the side-ache.
No "Possum Kingdom"??? C'mon!
I Burn is amazing live.
I Put On by Young Jeezy and Can't Be Touched by Roy Jones Jr. Always got me hyped for big games.
Two bangin songs:
Ludacris- last of a dying breed
Cyhi da prynce- top of the world
Your Touch- The Black Keys
Other good pump up songs from the Black Keys are I Got Mine and Everlasting Light. Psychotic Girl is pretty good too.
Limp Bizkit - Break Stuff!!!!
Not exactly your stereotypical pump up song, but it works for me:
Before games I would listen to a lot of pump up music a few hours or so before the game until about 20 minutes before the coach's speech and then I would switch to something more slow-paced to get me focused. Johnny Cash, Tchaikovsky, Frank Sinatra, stuff like that. I'm not someone who can go into a game yelling and pounding my chest like a gorilla, I like to be calm and focused.
At the gym its the same thing. I'd rather listen to Mozart than Metallica. Just a focus thing.
also, its a final countdown by Europe gets me going
You know, the stuff you see in commercials for movies! These are my current favorites, in rough order of priority by artist:
Mark Petrie - Richat, Virtuous
Chris Haigh - Ascend to Power, Epic Courage
Future World Music - Anthem of Courage, Gothic Messiah, Heart of Fury
Brand X Music - Bring the Pain, Extinction, Fearless, Heretic, Painkiller
Celldweller - Wings of Icarus
Two Steps from Hell - Heart of Courage, Protectors of the Earth
Where else will you get:
Dead I am the life, dig into the skin
Knuckle crack the bone, 21 to win
Two Steps From Hell -- Protectors of the Earth
Bonus Michigan-Ohio hype video w/PotE:
You change your name? Did I miss something?
I'm using my real name to trick people into thinking I'm one of the cool kids.
