Songs that get you hyped up?
March 21, 2014 9:38 AM   Subscribe

I'm making a playlist of music that gets my blood flowing. It currently has exactly one track: "Welcome to Jamrock" by Damien Marley (yt). Help me find more music that is similar in vibe, hardness, and in its ability to get a person hyped up!

Doesn't have to be reggae.

I can't watch the vid of the song you mentioned (at work) but Juke Box Hero always gets me pumped up.

the latter half of that list veers away from hitting as hard as Jamrock, but I suppose my blood flows at a different speed.

Eye of the Tiger by Survivor.

Who hasn't listened to this and pretended they were Rocky about to pull off the biggest upset in the world?

Oh, and also Cult of Personality by Living Colour. Serious rock boner right there.

Shots out to the homie box, but I gotta take the revolverloution version of Shut Em Down.
That's the song that will get you amped to put on your oxygen suit and leave your base on Mars to see if you can figure out what has been stealing your crop bubbles the last two weeks.
