There aren't too many songs by The Cult that really do it for us - it might be a list of one, actually - but this one really does it for us:

B-5-2 Baaby,
Way up in the skaeyy
Come drop your good lovin' on me, child...

As previously noted on several occasions: Woman-fronted heavy stuff really does it for us. Rock.

Pardon us while we pause to point out that the new Birthday Massacre album, Walking With Strangers, is pretty damned awesome from first song to last. You might not want every single track in your workout playlist - but you'll want this one, yo.

If you like the female-fronted hard and heavy stuff - and we do, we really seriously do - then I:Scintilla is a great discovery. Check them out, and knock yourself out. This song doth kick some ass.

You've got to wait for the first chorus on this one. It's all build-up. And the payoff is massive. Just chomp at your bit for awhile - and then when the magnificent chorus rolls around, get ready to take off.

Forget the Euro-trashy hair. Great song. (Zeromancer have a couple of other such asskickers, which will make it up here soon.)

A producer call himself Statik and a dreamer-poet called kaRIN. Great stuff if you're into this kind of spooky girl-rock stuff. Most of it insufficiently asskicking for workouts. This is one very nice exception. Big and rolling. Keeps you doing the same.

If you're like us, you'll occasionally discover a track which, for a certain period of time, seems very clearly to be the best workout song of all freaking time. Everything else, past and present, falls well short. Of course, eventually, another 'best workout song of all time' comes along and displaces it. But, still, those songs which at one point held that title make up an immortal cadre. Here's one of the immortals for you: big, angry, dark, thickly layered, and catchy as hell.

Celldweller's debut album probably has eight tracks you should have in your workout playlist. And this right here is probably the most totally asskicking of the lot. Play it when you're mad at something, and want to take it out on your body fat.
