This month's top 10 is notable for its lack of pop stars. Britney Spears, Flo Rida, and Will.I.Am each make an appearance, but they're in the minority. Put simply, there weren't a lot of pop songs that came out this month. In their absence, an eclectic bunch of tracks came out of the woodwork: the YouTube smash "Harlem Shake," a comeback single from Fall Out Boy, and a gritty ode to hell-raising from A$AP Rocky.

Here's the full list, according to votes placed at RunHundred.com, the web's most popular workout music website.

Flux Pavilion & Childish Gambino - Do or Die - 145 BPM

Baauer - Harlem Shake - 140 BPM

DJ Pauly D & Jay Sean - Back to Love - 128 BPM

Olly Murs & Flo Rida - Troublemaker - 108 BPM

Bignic - Down - 124 BPM

Cee Lo Green & Lauriana Mae - Only You - 110 BPM

A$AP Rocky, Skrillex & Birdy Nam Nam - Wild for the Night - 70 BPM

Fall Out Boy - My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up) - 77 BPM

Will.I.Am, Britney Spears, Hit-Boy, Waka Flocka Flame, Lil Wayne, Nelly & Diddy - Scream & Shout (Remix) - 130 BPM

Swedish House Mafia - Don't You Worry Child (Promise Land Remix) - 129 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 : http://boseworkout.com
