    You need to work out, you just don't want to do it. But discipline takes over and you get to the gym, what's the first 4 tunes you'd want to listen to to get you going. Remember, you're wearing headphones so no one knows what you're listening to.

    considering the crap I listen to, I'd prefer to keep it that way.
  3. Fight the Power - Public Enemy
    Evil and a Heathen - Franz Ferdinand
    Breakdown - Wale
    Unchained - Van Halen

    I need something that's uptempo but not angry because most of my workout stuff is running/abs instead of lifting.

    I listen to tons of Muse when I'm working out.

    At the moment:

    Welcome to the Jungle
    Day That Never Comes (especially when I'm running)
    Arlandria by the Foofighters
    Bad Company (Five Finger Death Punch version)

    As I said, those are the four songs that get me going the most right now. It's a list that changes, though.

    Anyone within 30 feet can always hear what I' listening to at the gym.

    Anyway, the correct answer is this:
