    Hey Sundial I was in a music rut too before I started teaching Spinning at my gym. Now I am constantly looking for new music. Pandora radio is also a great tool to find bands with the same sound. It's free and works great! Type in a band you already like and it does the rest... http://www.pandora.com/#/stations/create/

    Below some things outta my current library that are rock...

    Papa Roach: Lifeline, Scars, and this from them...

    ...To Be Loved (comes as CLEAN radio edit too--my kid loves WWE that's how I found it)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXPd0PnpXjY

    Gotta comment-
    Good hard core sprint interval rock song I love to use in class...

    "...we are taking back to a hard core level... you better be ready, put your pedal (& bici pedals count) to the metal... GO! ...I never give up, I never give in... I just wanna be loved... ". Visualize some friendly competition against one of his guy ride buddies and hammer it out like there is no tomorrow (or hounds from h*ell chasing--whatever works for ya! lol).

    Sick Puppies: You're Going Down (beat the bike up song, bad day at work--also from WWE)
    Skillet: Monster (more WWE find... core rock sound)
    Seether: Fake It, Broken, Breakdown, Rise Above This
    Shinedown: 2nd Chance, Sound of Madness, Devour
    3 Doors Down: Kryrptonite, Let Me Be Myself, It's Not My Time
    Red Hot Chili Peppers: Otherside, Scar Tissue, Give It Away
    Stone Temple Piolets: Plush
    Theory of a Deadman: Not Meant To Be, Bad Girlfriend
    Seven Mary Three: Cumbersome
    Nickleback: How You Remind Me, If Today Was Your Last Day, Rockstar
    Linkin Park: What I've Done, Bleed It Out, New Divide, Numb
    Lifehouse: Hanging By A Moment
    JET: Are You Gonna Be My Girl
    Green Day: I love them, but alternative, sprint song "Nice Guys Finish Last"
    Creed: My Sacrifice (greatest hits has a lot good heavy climb songs)
    Buckcherry: warning-explict though, but great rock beat
    Bad Company: Can't Get Enough (oldie but goodie)
    BTO: Takin Care Of Business (oldie but goodie, fast beat)
    The Offspring: Pretty Fly (more alt. rock, but nice guitar +more in my lib)

    I am not normally a techno music person. However, I found Fatboy Slim w/a Lance climbing vid. The song is Acid 8000. It has a great driving beat for some pedaling focus without words. "If this don't make your booty move, your booty must be dead!". YouTube link w/song... it's hypnotic almost lol!

    Hope he finds some tunes he likes!

    I'm not an individual song type of person. If I don't like at least 3 songs by an artist, I don't listen to them.
    I've posted this before - for some loud "war music" try this Celtic drum band

    I like Playlist over Pandora or LastFM because when you type in 'Wicked Tinkers" you get Wicked Tinkers, not another band 'like' them.

    The other two are good if you want to discover new music but you can do that in Playlist too, just look at other peoples playlists.

    I like to work out to:

    Disturbed
    Godsmack
    Breaking Benjamin
    Three Days Grace

    And similar.

    A bit removed from classic rock (much closer to metal) But it definitely makes you want to hammer (well, at least it makes me want to). Lots of energy, lots of drums, but if you can't handle screaming not for you (they do however scream on pitch).

    How about Clutch or Kings of Leon? I like to run to things like Rancid, Sublime, umm and now my mind is blank.

    Question
    Name 3 very different bands from 3 different genres.


    I like Phish and Afro Celt Sound System, too.
    I don't like the term "Chick" and I completely stopped listening to anything they did after the FUTK incident. Bad taste.
