my playlist for the gym/ running:
Jedi Mind Tricks
the Acacia Strain
Bury Your Dead
All Shall Perish
Army of the Pharoahs
Bane (only the Give Blood album)
DJ Doboy (Trance/ Vocal trance... gets me focused, but lowers the intensity a notch or two)
Hatebreed (only Satisfaction Is the Death of Desire album)
that should be enough to get you rollin. some of these bands have done the walk-ins for various UFC fighters. I know Hatebreed wrote a song just for Arlovski to walk in to, which is the song that plays on arlovski's website as well. Converge is headed by Jacob Bannon who owns Deathwish records, which sponsored Joe Lauzon. just an interesting fact.
Edit: almost forgot ETOWN CONCRETE!!!!! alway at the top of my playlist. the only rap/ rock that is okay to listen to.
shit man that's a solid list...sounds like something i would put on my ipod....i used to hang out with straight edge and hardcore punk kids so my music is all over the place too
