April is a big month for music-right now, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is holding its annual induction ceremony. But beyond resurfacing some of our favorite classic acts (and maybe learning about a few new ones!), the event is the perfect opportunity to uncover old songs that can help you rock your run.

The playlist below highlights Hall of Fame members of every variety. You'll find music from natural selections (The Beatles and Van Halen), artists not generally considered rock acts (Madonna and Run-D.M.C.), and some of this year's inductees (Green Day and Joan Jett). One of the main benefits of a rock-based mix? Its speed. Apart from a warm-up and cool down track, the list focuses on songs above 120 beats per minute (BPM)-with half the list clocking in around 140 BPM.

In addition to the variety and increased tempos, the virtue of these Rock and Roll Hall of Fame picks is that they celebrate timeless music. That means the tracks are ideal for anchoring a playlist-they'll never go out of style! So when you need something quick and reliable to power you through a session, turn up this mix-below, we've got five decades of musical movements in 10 dynamic jams.

I bought these headphones to use on a cross-country flight for work, since I wanted a good pair of noise-cancelling headphones. I really enjoyed them, they are very comfortable, and enclose my ears completely. The noise-cancelling function works really well, it made the engine noise disappear, and I was able to enjoy the movie I was watching without turning the volume all the way up.Great headphones for the money. I would definitely recommend them. check the products HERE : http://boseworkout.com
