Since Levi & I put our brains together for 25 Albums You Should Own On Vinyl we’ve been on a bit of a music-list kick. We know, we know – listicles are the death of writing & critical thinking, etc. Yet, we love reading them ourselves, even when we vehemently disagree with the author’s picks…and we love making them ourselves. Thus, we decided to do one more (we promise…probably) that would hopefully be useful to a lot of people – a workout playlist.
For quite a while both of us have been asked by our friends for good indie workout music, i.e. non-Top 40, stuff you don’t hear on the radio everyday. Thus, we present you with 100 songs (50 from each of us) that we think deserve a place on your workout playlist. Is this the top 100? Best workout playlist ever? Possibly, but you can decide.
What you WON’T find is Powerman 5000, Drowning Pool, Metallica – so if you’re a power lifter and that’s the music you’re looking for don’t bother reading on. However, if your workout includes more than A.C.-Slater-curls, things like running, biking, CrossFit, etc. then you may find some good stuff here you may have otherwise never discovered. Enjoy!
