    If you want a song that really does motivate then how about Motivational by The Toadies.

    Definitely Rammstein for the hills - before I looked up the lyrics I assigned my own imagined translastion... Am I going to let this hill get me off my bike? - NEIN!

    As for New Order I'm suprised nobody's mentioned True Faith ! Pefect for sunrise rides.

    Crazy Train by Ozzy is great too - used to listenening to it while riding so for the longest time i thought he was singing " ankle bones still screaming... driving me insane" :p

    At the risk of being a big big geek, who (at least us non teenager folks) could forget Mendelssohn's "Italian" symphony - the song used in Breaking Away, when Dave does his (I think) nearly impossible fast draft of the 18 wheeler.

    When cyling the songs that pop into my head do so mainly by cadence. But I have to give "Marathon" by Rush its due.

    Other songs: ( a partial list)
    Can I Play with Madness- Maiden, as in I gotta be crazy to climb that hill:D
    Neon Knights- Black Sabbath
    Summer Song- Joe Satriani
    Southbound- Allman Bros
    Kick it out- Heart
    Black Out- Scorpions or Bleck OW! by SKOHPIAHHNS:D
    The race sequence from Bill Cosby's GoCarts routine

    Earworms: (terrible songs you can't shake from your head)
    Ice Ice baby- Vanilla Ice
    Relax- Frankie goes to hollywood
    that stupid wake-me-up before you go-go song by Wham

    Well I don't ever listen to music when I ride...but I do tend to sing "Run Thriugh The Jungle" by Creedence Clearwater Revival to myself when I am out on a country road.


    I am weird!

    Thursday - War All the Time
    Taking Back Sunday - Cut(e) from the team without the E
    The Offspring - The Kids aren't Alright
    The Killers - Jenny was a Friend of Mine

    I'd have to cast my vote for "Rollin" from Limp Bizkit.

    Second pick would be CCR's "Run Through the Jungle."

    Don't Laugh! But while climbing to keep my cadence steady, I sing "The wheels on the bus go round and round..."

    works every time!

    ;)

    If your're racing, try "Rockin Down the Highway" by the Doobie Brothers.

    I may have outgrown my angry teenage male phase more than a decade ago, but nothing works better for indoor intervals than Slayer's 1980's classic album Reign in Blood, any song, but preferably the whole album. Maybe I need to try it in a TT...

    right now, i am getting good rides with the song "Girlie Parts" by
    The Sons Of Tricky Dicky.

    this may be the best ever. i predict if it got played at a stadium sport event it would catch on like "we will rock you", or gary glitter.
