Runner's High - Top 30 Masculine Workout Songs

Now we take a break from the regular programming for something completely different. 

This list has been compiling in my head slowly over the years, and I feel compelled to share it.

My world is filled with radio featuring castrated pop artists who've sold their souls for a greener bottom line. The selection of music available on the radio-dial leaves me scratching my head sometimes. Even the girlfriend jokes about bashing her head against 50lb dumbbells when subjected to the feeble music being force-fed at the local gym. 

The selection of weak, soul-less, puritan music peddled in public places will never again dampen a workout of mine.  

Runners high. Second Wind. Crushing a personal best. Beast Mode. If you can fondly recall a memory of these things then add the following 30 tunes to your workout playlist.
