I really like punk rock.

The problem is there isn’t that many recommendations of great tracks to play when having a workout.

So I’ve compiled a list together – this is based on previous recommendations and also includes lots of other great tracks to inspire and motivate.

I’ve provided a diverse range of songs without comment, varying across the genres from the softer more mainstream pop punk to the louder, angrier hardcore punk.

But what they all have in common is their greatness to pump you up for any workout, even when you’re tired.
