Ooh, just one more: "Kick" by INXS. I don't know if I've actually ever heard this song, but the lyrics are appropriate.

"Kung Fu Fighting" seems like a natural to me, but I loved the movie Shaolin Soccer.

"Johnny Kick a Hole in the Sky," Red Hot Chili Peppers

And, a decent song from a cheesy Disney flick (Country Bears):

"Kick It Into Gear," Jennifer Paige

(That one's a bit of a guilty pleasure. I blame it on my kids.)

Cracked magazine had this list last week of the best terrifyingly inspirational songs from the 80s.
Here it is...
Kick isn't in the title of them, but they will pump you up for sure...

"Kick out the Chairs" by Munk, with James Murphy (from LCD Soundsystem) on vocals. Contains the f-word for added pumpitude!

And do yourself a favor -- use the original MC5 KOTJ recording (the MF-er version if possible). If you must use a cover, may it be the Henry Rollins/Bad Brains collaboration from the "Pump Up the Volume" soundtrack...

"Jane Says" by Jane's addiction, but the context is kind of a downer.

anything from the Rocky IV soundtrack.

i (vaguely) recall a band called SR-71 having a song that featured kicking in their biggest hit's chorus. the song was "right now". it's pretty catchy.
