10 Great Punk Workout songs

Updated after being originally published in February 2014

I really punk rock.  But one of the problems I find when I Google ‘Best Workout Songs’ most of these lists have lots of hip-hop, rock, dance, but lack a bit of Punk.  So I decided to put together a list of some of the songs that I really like.

With its short songs, fast beats per minute, catchy guitar and motivational lyrics I am surprised that more punk songs are not recommended.

If you have any suggestions to these 10 great workout songs, please leave a comment below.

Gorilla Biscuits – New Direction

Play this track at the start of your workout, feel the trumpets at the beginning to get you pumped and get moving.  Grabbing a swiss ball to do air drumming is optional. Continue reading “More Punk songs to listen to at the gym”

The Punk Rock Training Playlist

I really love my punk rock.  The first time I went to a show was to see the Bouncing Souls support the Dropkick Murphys.

I liked the Souls from the start, I gradually worked my way through their back catalogue, even eventually purchasing the reprint of their rare debut album – The Greenball Crew.

I also like a lot of other punk bands, so naturally I wanted to listen to punk music while I train.  Doing a search for punk music to workout to, gives little good results, usually favouring metal music or the hip-hop we already have on our playlists.
