1. Kanye West – Stronger
Industrial-sized synthesizers and a vocal sample lifted from techno titans Daft Punk, “Stronger” is relentless and remarkable. Not rock in the conventional sense, but great to pick up your tempo nonetheless!
2. U2 – Beautiful Day
Tender, emotional and triumphant, this song is stirring and best for an outdoor run. And it’s a timeless classic to run to.
3. Rolling Stones – Start Me Up
You cannot have a proper rock playlist without the Stones making an appearance. This song is a sureshot winner.
4. OK Go – Here It Goes Again
Forever synonymous with running in place, “Here It Goes Again” honors the treadmill with inspired choreography in a genius video. The song itself is an alt-rock barnburner, with crunchy power chords and great vocals.
5. Florence And The Machine – The Dog Days Are Over
With lyrics like – ‘Run fast for your mother, run fast for your father. Run for your children, for your sisters and brothers’, Florence Welch makes sure you have enough motivation for your run.
6. Red Hot Chili Peppers – Can’t Stop
This track has a whole lotta sass and a whole lotta funk, and it’s all about energy, which is perfect for that fast-paced segment in your routine. RHCP is a band that’s great fun to run to, so don’t hesitate in picking any other song either.
