What are some great "powersongs"?

On my Nike+ iPod dongle, I can designate any one song to be a "powersong", where, at any time in my workout, I can hold the center button and it will interrupt my music to play a different track. The idea is that you can put some really awesome inspirational motivational music in there for when you need a little boost.
Right now I have Gonna Fly Now (from, where else, Rocky), because honestly I think that's the song that this feature is designed for. But I'm running my first 10k next weekend and I'm looking for other suggestions for songs that are high energy, particularly at the beginning and end (the end is impotant, since you sort of need to catapult yourself back into your regular running music).
I've read the other running music AskMe question, which was very helpful, but if anyone has any extra special NITRO BOOST songs, let me know...
P.S. Let me note that, although fast is better than slow, I don't need this to be any particular tempo (I don't run to a specific BPM or anything).
