Give your pop favorites a week off and score your next workout with new music from Twenty One Pilots, Billy Idol, and more

By Chris Lawhorn

For lots of people, "workout music" is synonymous with "pop music." The logic is straightforward: if something will get you moving in a club, surely it'll get you moving in a gym. Nevertheless, there's a wealth of great workout music beyond the Top 40. For this playlist, we handpicked a few of our current favorites.

The list kicks off with a warm-up track from college radio favorites MisterWives and winds down with a thundering number from the ageless Billy Idol. In the middle, you'll find new tracks from conceptual rockers Coheed & Cambria, breakthrough duo Twenty One Pilots, and The Strokes' guitarist Albert Hammond, Jr. Elsewhere in the mix, there's a one-off single from The Offspring, the latest from Austin's beloved Spoon, and a suprisingly understated track from The Madden Brothers (of Good Charlotte fame).

If you're weary of pop, these tracks represent the tip of a musical iceberg. At the same time, if you love pop, your current playlist is almost always in jeopardy of getting played out. Swapping in another genre for the week can help you break up your routine, and your usual favorites will sound better after some time apart. So wherever your tastes lie, there's something below that'll get you moving.

MisterWives – Reflections – 111 BPM

Third Eye Blind – Everything Is Easy – 128 BPM

Spoon – Do You – 128 BPM

The Madden Brothers – We Are Done – 122 BPM

The Offspring – Coming for You – 140 BPM

Coheed & Cambria – Island – 136 BPM

Big Black Delta – It's OK – 134 BPM

Albert Hammond, Jr. – Losing Touch – 138 BPM

Twenty One Pilots – Tear in My Heart – 120 BPM

Billy Idol – Bitter Pill – 115 BPM

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 :
