Ultimate Nü Metal Workout Mix
by Justin Farrar | July 7, 2014
Nü metal is to your workout routine what a lit fuse is to a big stick of TNT. Whatever weight you're currently lifting, whatever number of reps you find yourself locked into, prepare to double them once the aggro jammers of Korn, Deftones, Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, Incubus and all their mosh-pit pals explode in your sweaty, slippery earbuds. From "Back to School (Mini Maggit)" to "A.D.I.D.A.S.," "One Step Closer" to "Rollin' (Air Raid Vehicle)," the genre's most beloved anthems are like pure sonic HGH. Hell, the best nü metal is so aggressive, intense and brutal that our mix would even make perfect motivational music for MMA fighters feverishly training for upcoming matches. After all, two of the 15 throw-downs featured, Sepultura's "Roots Bloody Roots" and Soulfly's "Bleed," actually reference blood in their titles. Of course, some of you have zero intention of working out in the gym while listening to our playlist. You're instead going to crank it while playing video games, or doing whippits, or both at the same time. Hey, that's cool, too. Because it comes packed with so many monster hits, our mix can also double as a Nü Metal's Greatest Hits collection. So yeah, versatility is the name of the game, people. Suit up. Turn it up. Get ripped!
