Pump up music

I would like to know what others listen to before a "Big Game" or event to get pumped up and in the moment.


Stooges - Fun House
Nirvana - Nevermind
Black Sabbath - Paranoid
Minutemen - Double Nickles on a dime
Rolling Stones - Let It Bleed
Sonic Youth - Goo
Tom Waits - Real Gone
Talking Heads - Stop Making sense (Only some songs)

I know most of this stop is heavier. But its pump up music and thats how I like it. If im looking for inspiration than I would bust out Kid A or Blood On the Tracks

The Go! Team - "Thunder, Lightning, Strike"

It's the punchiest record I've ever heard.

Unless you use a water proof ipod, John

The Rifles' debut album No Love Lost gets me in the mood.

Re: Pump up music

There are devices that actually water-proof an Ipod but they are expensive and not 100 percent safe. Instead I just have to listen to the lite rock station that my apartment blasts over the pool.
