I've got a pretty eclectic mix on my MP3 player, pretty much anything rock with a good beat to it. There's a lot of Muse and Killers on there, U2's "how to dismantle an atomic bomb", some classic Bob Seeger (hollywood nights, roll me away). Cheap Trick (I want you to want me), Green Day the whole American Idiot album, some Counting Crows.

During cardio sessions I crank up Gossip (if you need a sample, check out the songs Love Long Distance, Dimestore Diamond and Vertical Rhythm), The Faint (sample The Geeks Were Right, Get Seduced, Let the Poison Spill From Your Throat and Glass Danse), and Gorillaz (Dare and Feel Good Inc. are good examples).

For lifting I'm listening to Deftones (Lifter, 7 Words, My Own Summer), Tool (aw shucks, they're my favorite band so its hard to pick a representative song... maybe Forty Six & 2), Puscifer (if you already like Tool and A Perfect Circle, check them out -- its... interesting. They have all kinds of remixes and whatnot, but check out Queen B and Momma Sed), Faith No More (Be Aggressive, Ashes to Ashes), Queens of the Stone Age (Little Sister), Kyuss (Deamon Cleaner), The Dead Weather (I Cut Like a Buffalo, Treat Me Like Your Mother) and Tomahawk (God Hates a Coward).

Just some ideas -- the song examples may not be the best, but they're some that I never skip when they come up on my playlist. Good Luck and keep the ideas coming everyone!

I haven't heard a lot from Seether or Breaking Benjamin but what I've heard I like. If there are any songs you particularly enjoy let me know. Never heard of Chevelle; I'll have to check them out.

I love Tool and A Perfect Circle. I've heard of the Gorillaz, Deftones, Faith No More, and Queens of the Stone Age. I haven't heard of the others. I'm excited to go and listen to these songs. Unfortunately, I can't connect to iTunes store at the moment.

Thanks for the lists! Exactly what I'm looking for: new music. Should I post some of the stuff I have?

@Hunny24
Yeah I like Ludacris... don't know if I could exercise to him though. Iron Man... hmmm think I need to revisit some of my Black Sabbath. Haha The Godfather Of Soul... HEY! Classic.

@mtlgirl
Some of these I've never heard of. Can't wait to check them out.

@cjohnson728
Fake It - one of the only Seether songs I know but I love it. Disturbed is awesome. Not a big fan of Blue Oyster Cult though. But some songs I've not heard of so I'll have to check them out.

Sure, post some of yours; could always use new songs!

Basically I use any of three criteria...if a song has a strong, quick beat; if it has a message that channels adrenaline in a good (like Resolution by Jack's Mannequin, forgot that one) or even angry (like Love the Way You Lie by Eminem with Rhianna) way; or if it reminds me of a certain place/time/situation that is motivating to me personally, even if the beat isn't great, it makes it onto the iPod. Sometimes it's not just the pace of the song that gets you going, if you know what I mean.

Nice thread...hopefully it'll keep rolling a while.
