High Energy Music- What Do You Play to Get Motivated?

  1. I was going to add some of these to the 1980's thread but it has been inactive for over a year. I came of age during that decade and really enjoyed hard rocking music. I still listen to it today when I want to get fired up for something. Here are some of my favorites in no particular order:

    The Cult - Wildflower: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_FxxRTiiKE

    Metallica - Seek and Destroy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVM8DUhdLyo

    Ozzy Osbourne- Bark at the Moon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F89-MOy7Xfg

    AC/DC- TNT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pR30knJs4Xk

    Sammy Hagar- I Can't Drive 55 (If you're too young to remember the National Maximum Speed Law consider yourself fortunate): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10X3zJpMDMo

    So what songs do you listen to when you're looking for some added intensity?

  2. I'd love to change the world
  3. Pump up songs eh? Just about every Epic Rap Battle of History. May be a little....vulgar but it makes me feel hype :D

  5. This is always blasting out of my headphones when I need to get things done
  6. While I did not grow up in the age when (imo) music was the best (pre-1990s pretty much...).

    Added Intensity/Motivation when gaming:
    I have more. I like the songs in your list, I feel like most of the music I listen to (70-80s rock) has that sort of added intensity or motivation in some cases to it. Not saying there isn't that kind of feel in modern music, just feel like most of the songs in my favorites list could be listed here.

  7. True Survivor- David Hasselhof
  8. Also, Drake, French Montana (only Figure It Out), Hardwell, Kygo, and Alesso along with some other miscellaneous Djs are what I listen to to get motivated.
  9. Nicotine - Panic At The Disco

  11. Hmmm ;) When it comes to motivation and such then I most often prefer no music :) Helps keep me stay focussed, and well, once I am focussed on something I usually don't hear the music anyway. Wouldn't be the first time I turned on some "mood music" (say Pink Floyd) and started working on something and when I eventually finished I end up surprised to learn that the music had already stopped :D

    But... Intensifying music eh?

    M, Above & Beyond remix - Ayumi Hamasaki
    For whom the bell tolls - Metallica
    Suicide Solution - Ozzy Osbourne (where "that" live performance is my absolute favourite)
    Tamashii no Rufuran - Megumi Hayashibara
    Expendable youth - Slayer
    Skeletons of society - Slayer
    Raining blood - Slayer
    Replica - Origa
    Inner universe - Origa
    One man stands - Anthrax

    Some things which pop up from mind just now :)

    Where my overall favourite is probably For whom the bell tolls :)

    Oh well...

  12. When I need energy I go to my drum'n'bass playlist on my Google Play account. Here are some youtube videos of what I have on there:

    and it goes on and on.....

    when I'm ready for a cooldown:

    Yes yes yes, I freakin LOVE Logistics and Hospitality Records in general

    I know none of you are actually going to click and listen to any of these songs but they are so gd beautiful and inspiring to me.

  13. MY HERO
    KANYE WEST - STRONGER (might be explicit)
  14. yasss but I have to add:

    I have some more but need to look at my playlist ;)
