Winchester Workout Mix
May 6, 2014 2:30 PM   Subscribe

I like Supernatural. In honor of their upcoming 10th season(!), I want to make a workout mix-tape worthy of the Impala.

Of course "Carry On Wayward Son" by Kansas is the closer. Songs must be hard-hitting, bass-thumping, rock ballads that kick ass. Or, you know, stuff you like that fits with the show.

What an awesome idea!

You should definitely kick things off with "Back In Black" by AC/DC, which is in the pilot episode.

Also:

"Don't Fear The Reaper" by Blue Oyster Cult
"Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor
"Highway to Hell" by AC/DC
"Wanted Dead or Alive" by Bon Jovi

If you want a cool down song as well, maybe "Knockin' on Heaven's Door"?

Your playlist won't be complete without Dean's two favorite songs, both by Led Zeppelin, "Ramble On" and "Travelling Riverside Blues"

They play Lynyrd Skynyrd's Simple Man on the show at least a few times.

You can't leave out "Heat of the Moment" by Asia, as featured (over and over and over again) in "Mystery Spot."

IIRC the superwiki (or whatever the fan-run thing is called) has a track listing for every episode so far

Back when I was obsessed with the show I was also obsessed with pairing it with My Chemical Romance's "Welcome to the Black Parade." It takes a minute or so for the song to start kicking ass, but it's like it was written for the Winchester brothers.

This Spotify playlist that has most of the songs from the show (and is regularly updated) might come in handy.
