120-128 BPM songs, emphasis on the B?

I'm looking for songs 120-128 BPM (ish) that have a really pronounced beat. Basically songs that make you naturally tap your feet or clap your hands. Double points for songs that start strong and get you super pumped. Like these! Bamboleo | Die MF Die | Look Good in Leather | Seven Nation Army

Dance/house music tends to be either 128 or 160bpm.

A bunch of Rage Against the Machine... Born of a Broken Man comes to mind.

Doves - Black and White Town
It might not be as fast as you're looking for though.

Elvis Costello's "Pump It Up" does exactly that.

I don't know anything about their speed, but:

The Killers - Bling (Confessions of a King)
HelloGoodbye - Here in Your Arms

Both of these start a bit slow but then really get going.

The Tragically Hip - New Orleans is Sinking
LL Cool J - Mama Said Knock You Out
Timbaland - The Way I Are
John Mayer - Belief
Michael Jackson - The Way You Make Me Feel and Billie Jean

Marilyn Manson - Beautiful People.

Has some slower bits, but has an awesome beat. I use it to get a boost in the last kilometre of a run - it's beat is slightly faster than my regular cadence so it gets me moving faster
