M2 April Play List #2

After posting my last play list I was inspired to rip together another one to good review at class last night.  Happy too, since I'm teaching class and didn't want a bust of a music collection distracting me.  This last one may have tapped me out for a bit though.  Music is getting expensive, and this music came thanks to a great gift my sister gave me, $50.00 iTumes card, that was lost on my desk for the past few months, but just found!  Thanks Ash!

My brother deserves credit for my love of NIN and Rob Zombie type music. There is always a problem trying to find the good recordings from that time though. Putting old files like that into a play list makes it either too quite, or the next song nearly blasts the speakers out. Luckily guys like Trent Reznor and Rob Zombie were a bit ahead of the game with the recording quality and, embarrassingly, it is becoming "Classic" music and a lot of old tracks are being re-dubbed to improve play on modern devices.

Anyways, here's the new list. I hope you like it. It spans a few decades and a few genre's, so there is something for most everyone. Can't always please everyone.

Two Door Cinema Club - Something Good Can Work

Dirty Heads - Easy

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Sweet Home Alabama (trying to get something for everyone in this one)

Two Door Cinema Club - Come Back Home

Ludacris - One More Drink

The Airborne Toxic Event - Changing

Korn - Word Up!

Jet - Cold Hard Bitch

Arctic Monkeys - I Bet You Look Good On the Dancefloor

Jane's Addiction - Been Caught Stealing

Nine Inch Nails - The Hand That Feeds

The Raconteurs - Salute Your Solution

Franz Ferdinand - Evil and a Heathen

Depeche Mode - Personal Jesus

Queens of the Stone Age - No One Knows

Deadmau5 - Sofi Needs a Ladder

Tiesto & Diplo - C'mon (w Busta Rhymes)-One of the favorites.  Comes in around 45 minutes into class when we hit the most intense parts of the workout.

Steve Aoki & Sidney Samson - Wake Up Call

The Chemical Brothers - Let Forever Be

Eminem - Lose Yourself

Onyx - Slam


  1. Nice one, Brett. Since my spin class history began at 24 Hr Fitness, I'm used to spinning with the beat of the music. It's a tough habit to break. Couple good, up tempo songs towards the end of yesterday's class helped out with the last 15 minutes of intervals.

    (Okay, I just read your post all the way through and saw that you had a similar experience in class. Still leaving you this comment since I like getting notes on my blog and maybe you do, too!)

  2. Thanks Kelly. I started spin at 24 Hour too! Timing out the music is one of the more difficult things, with a mellow 20 minute warm-up, then building with different music. Glad you liked it.
