Not sure if this has been done before but I'm currently putting together my first running playlist and seeing as my favourite music is usually rock /alternative /grunge /indie, I'm struggling to find something suitable!

Any recommendations?

Rebell Yell seemed to work quite well earlier. I have the odd Beastie Boy/Fat Boy Slim track and a few random ones but any recommendations gratefully received!

Oh, I have a real mix to listen to on mine! Beastie Boys here too, AC/DC, Joy Division, Janes Addiction...

I find Head like a hole by NIN is a great one to run to.

Best of You by the Foos also good...
No rain by Blind Melon
I like anything that builds up and goes for it really...

Mind has gone blank now though - erk!

It's difficult to find suitable songs! There's a gap in the compilations market right there! Good call on nin and the foo fighters grin

Queens of the Stone Age? Go With The Flow and You Think I Ain't Worth A Dollar are two brilliant 'surging' tracks.

PJ Harvey
Asobi Seksu
My Bloody Valentine
Dinosaur Jr
Sleigh Bells
Sonic Youth

More metal than rock, but rammstein is my favourite exercise music

The Fall are surprisingly good to run to.

Shinedown - generally, but mostly 'Cut the Cord'.

Some years ago I used to run at the gym (I've got knee problems so the treadmill was 'safer'). I used to listen to a lot of Queens of the Stone Age. My personal trainer was surprised at how 'running friendly' it was.

Rammstein, Slipknot, Lamb of God, old Metallica/Megadeth/Slayer etc - metalhead here smile

For a bit of reliving my lost youth at the gym though, the TFI Friday compilation album is actually very good - loads of late 90s rock and indie.
