100 Running Songs

It’s the new year and everyone is making their new year’s resolution for 2012. And obviously the top new year’s resolutions are always to exercise more and lose weight. Well, I’ve compiled a list of 100 songs to run to. These songs have great beats to help make your workouts a little more enjoyable.

It’s perfect if you make a playlist on your iPod titled “Running Songs” so you can just leave it on shuffle as you run. I’ve attached links to the songs that direct you to Youtube.

I tried to get a variety of songs to suit different people. Old and new songs, hip-hop and alternative, for men and for women, etc. I encourage you to listen to a song or two that you’ve never heard of. Who knows? Maybe you’ll find your new favorite song to run to (you can never have too many.) Happy running!

  2. Cool list! Here are just a few of mine:

    * Bleed It Out by Linkin Park
    * Stronger by Kanye West
    * a lot from Night at Roxbury soundtrack (sounds silly I know)
    * Headstrong by Trapt
    * a lot of Black Eyed Peas

    tech n9ne- riot maker
    wiz khalifa- hard work
    Eminem- Lose yourself
    Hey Sexy Lady (Skrillex remix)
    Nelly- Here Comes The Boom

  5. My favorite is”my body” by Young the Giant. It’s got this line “my body tells me no but I won’t quit cause I want more” it’s an awesome motivator and isn’t it always the case where your body says its time to quit but you can’t stop?

    • love this list too!

  7. Already had many of theses in my gym play list, but I added LMFAO shots today. The beat gets the blood pumpin’ and the lyrics can’t help but crack you up. LOVE IT

    • the lyrics totally crack me up too – I can’t help but to think about my crazy college days of drinking and smoking cigarettes and how they contrast to my running around a park, being a mom and doing healthy things now.

  8. I know country doesn’t exactly sound like work-out music, but I was surprised while running when I listened to Barefoot and Crazy by Jack Ingram. Some of those rowdy songs get you going just as much as Rihanna

  9. Black and Yellow – Wiz Khalifa
    Dreaming Tree – Dave Matthews Band
    The Way I Are – Timbaland
    If You Could Only See – Tonic
    Bottoms Up – Trey Songz

  10. Helena by My Chemical Romance is so climactic!!! Also love Damages by TLC, The Remedy by Jason Mraz, and Just like a Pill by Pink.

  11. Fighters of Foo kick my butt on the asphalt – Is that road getting the best of you? Are you giving yourself the best of you?

  12. 30 Seconds To Mars – Kings and Queens/Closer To The Edge, Lostprophets – Bring ‘Em Down/Can’t Catch Tomorrow/Last Train Home, Linkin Park – Points of Authority, Kill Hannah – Kennedy, Breathe Carolina – Blackout, Shinedown – I’m Alive, Miley Cyrus – Can’t Be Tamed, and Adam Lambert – If I Had You. Add those to your list above and you’ve got yourself a superior list of songs!!!

  13. Do You Wanna Touch Me? by Joan Jett, Rock Your Body by Justin Timberlake, Next Girl by The Black Keys, Sweet Serendipity by Lee DeWyze, Gone Away and You’re Gonna Go Far kid by the Offspring, She’s So High by Tal Bachman, and Cute Without the “E” by Taking Back Sunday

  17. Bruno Mars’s “Runaway Baby” always gets/keeps me running. My favorite band to run to is Rise Against (Satellite, Savior, Paper Wings, Life Less Frightening, Prayer of the Refugee, etc.). There are a few great fast-paced running songs on the Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack (Jai Ho and O…Saya are my favorites, plus M.I.A.’s Paper Planes).

  18. Until The End by Breaking Benjamin is my favorite to run to. The lyrics are great and really motivate me to keep going.

  19. Just found your blog and it is absolutely fantastic! This list is seriously amazing. I just went through and pulled all the songs I already had into a playlist — I’ve definitely got some downloading to do though!

  20. Pingback: Fun Finds | Running Playlist « megan elizabeth eilers

  21. I use either Bodies by Drowning Pool or Paralyzer by Finger 11 as my kick songs, for the last quarter to half mile. :)

  22. I used to run to “Pump It” and “My Humps” by the Black Eyed Peas. It had the perfect beat for me in the treadmill. Especially that last sprint.

  23. I love:
    “Born to Run” by the Boss
    “I Gotta Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas
    “Here it Goes Again” by OK Go
    “Firework” by Katy Perry
    “Livin’ on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi (I love to time this at the middle of my run!)
    “Defying Gravity” from Wicked
    “River Deep, Mountain High” Glee version
    “Run the World” by Beyonce
    “Run Runaway” by Great Big Sea
    “Titan Spirit (Score)” from the Remember the Titans soundtrack

  24. I kinda think that Offspring song is too depressing to motivate anyone. Have you ever listened to the lyrics? It’s about failing at life.

  26. I think this isn’t great list!!! Everyone has their own opinion of songs they’d add or delete, but I think its great! Good job!

  28. I can’t tell you much I loved this! The linking to youtube is amazing.
    I am just starting running, it isn’t fun yet and music is make or break for me. The best part is that I had a lot of the songs so I added a couple for a whole new mix. Thanks!

  29. Great list! Thanks for posting. My all time favorite workout song is Bodies by Drowning Pool. It keeps me going when I want to quit.

  30. I Wanna by The All American Rejects

    Daughtry’s Renegade – “I’m right here ready to run.”
    Metallica is also really good to run with.

  32. Pingback: Sally’s Pins – Sally Spins

  33. the list you put up is very similar to my running songs. however, the best song for keeping a solid running pace for me is Whoa is me- by: down with webster.It’s not my favourite song but the beats keep a consistant running pace. check it out.

  34. Pingback: Post-Fracture Running « Food, Fitness & Folly

  35. I guess it really depends on what you are looking for in a song when you run…sometimes I want something upbeat to keep me moving but sometimes I want something with a deep meaning to keep me pushing harder.

  44. I listened to all 100 and out of those only 13 could possibly work for my runs and or when I work out. A lot of the songs on your list I would listen to but not run or workout to. I enjoy really fast paced music with little down time in between because if it starts to slow down then I will slow down or possibly even stop I need music that makes me push through. I also don’t limit myself to music in English because when I run I just focus on the beat so it doesn’t matter if I can understand the language or not. Give these songs a listen you never know you may end up adding one to your running playlist. Also people should try looking for music outside of what they think they like you’d be surprised what you like once you stop limiting yourself to one genre.

    Aural Vampire- 69 Balloons http://youtu.be/Q1Cy7LK-MnQ
    Aural Vampire- Vampire Ecstasy http://youtu.be/IXplD4VwkLo
    Static-X -Push It http://youtu.be/lkjxmscriEo I think this song helps you get through runs especially if you are starting to get tired this one really gets you to push through it.

    Ty for the list I found a few that I will definitely have around for my listening pleasure.

  45. I LOVE Tobymac. Super high energy, and just awesome talent. It’s a christian group, but I highly suggest giving “the slam” and “hey devil” a preview. Those are my sprint songs :)

  54. Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit and Maroon 5’s Makes Me Wonder might actually work as running music, although I don’t like to listen to music while I run since I want to stay alert what’s happening around me. Don’t want to get hit by a car or something…
