I agree with Kelly. There's a zen saying "If you're making, tea, make tea". One reason I don't go to gyms is the constant music/noise.

It may sound a little crazy but I've had some of my best workouts listening to classical music. No words to me is less distraction. Most of the time however the radio is turned to a morning news/talk radio station that is very annoying. On Saturday morning I listen to a Country Gold radio program and on Sundays I sometimes get lucky and listen to a Polka program or one called Jamaican Gold. Although I like AC/DC, I think I would have a hard time listening to it at 5:45 AM when I work out but I might give it a try. I like Johnny Horton as well, he died in a car wreck after playing a show at a honky tonk near where I grew up.

Rage Against the Machine played so loud the walls tremble is the only way to go.

Nice choice, Rick; the only way to play RATM.

My musical tastes are very broad, but I like loud, guitar-heavy stuff when I workout; it helps to pump me up.

I made a CD up a while back for Tabatas, with two different sounding buzzers mixed over the top of the music for the start/end of each interval. Minute rest b/w each set of 8 rounds etc, for a total of about 8-10 complete 4 minute rounds.

Recently, the radio was playing one of the songs that I'd put on that CD; and I was listening for the buzzer to start a set of tabatas...! So it's got to the point where certain music for me is synonymous with working out.

Well, if it's *loud* you want, I'll hold up David Bowie's "Suffragette City" against anything to get your blood stirring.

RATM is my favorite selection, although I often find I don't even 'hear' the music when I'm really focused.
