GTFU Songs

I'm still sick. My sore throat moved on, thankfully, leaving me with watery eyes and a faucet nose. Gross. I was well enough to go to work on Monday and get some stuff done, but I ended up taking an MCF Half Day™, which meant that I left shortly after 5 and skipped the gym entirely. A two hour nap before my shows helped, and now I just have some aches and mild congestion. I hate not being 100%, and every day I skip the gym and “feed my cold” is a day I undo any progress I've made on the weight loss front. I find cardio is a good idea when I feel a cold coming on, and sometimes getting the heart pumping helps me knock it out before it hits me. But once I am sick and in a weakened state, exercise would only make things worse, and possibly lead to some respiratory problems.

I had wanted to build off of Krispy's Evergreen Hits idea at some point, and go through the songs that I'll never tire of. In a way, the following songs do fit that description. But there are plenty of slower tracks that I can also listen to over and over, and these are more specifically the ones that will get me the **** up and get me moving. I need inspiration, motivation, revolution, and a sloth solution. I need to hear this music right NOW to jump start my POW.

Pedal to the metal, feet on the pavement, nose to the grindstone, Get The **** UP:

”We're Not Gonna Take It” (Twisted Sister):

”Song 2” (Blur)

”Smells Like Teen Spirit” (Nirvana):

”Summer of ‘69” (Bryan Adams):

”Jump Around” (House of Pain):

”Fight for Your Right” (Beastie Boys):

”Bodies” (Drowning Pool):

”Because The Night” (10,000 Maniacs cover):

”Again” (Alice in Chains)

”Blackened” (Metallica):

”Bullet With Butterfly Wings” (Smashing Pumpkins):

”Once” (Pearl Jam):

”Don't Stop Believin'” (Journey):

Nice List! The House of Pain vid reminded me of an Everlast song that I never got tired of ... and kinda wish it had been a bigger it so it would still get some airplay.

If you go by NY radio, you would have thought "What It's Like" was Everlast's only song. They played that(and his solo career) into the ground.
