What song got you through that last soul crushing interval

Todays’ workout was Kaweha and I almost quit on that last 5 minute of 10 minute FTP plateau… until Two High from Moon Taxi kicked in and gave an adrenaline kick to the end.

What was your song that made the difference and got you through that black hole of a workout?

Thanks for sharing!

Levels by Avicii typically does the trick :loud_sound:

Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation, and Cattle Decapitation work for me. Away from the bike, I prefer Brittany Spears or ABBA.

Works amazingly.

For intervals that long: Dave Matthews Band, Live in Central Park, All Along the Watchtower. I start the song such that the music ends right when the interval is over.

Honor by Fraunhofer Diffraction worked for me at the end of some over unders. Wornout by Traitors is a go to for most of the hard intervals.

I am re-working my FTP Ramp Test playlist, but my top four for the last few steps are the Beatles “Hey Bulldog”, ELO’s “Mr. Blue Sky” and U2’s “Desire” and The Who’s “My Wife”. Sorry if that dates me. Give them a shot. Perfect for cadence and motivation. Throw in The Door’s “Peace Frog” for another option.

Can’t beat Rage Against the Machines “Killing in the name” or “Bulls on parade”. Got me through many tough VO2 and Threshold sessions this winter.

Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven and the Eagle’s Hotel California. The last few minutes of each song are pretty exhilarating when it comes to finishing a workout, at least for me.

Call like a bomb definitely! Absolute classic that one. Great for threshold intervals!

Yeah, I have a library of angry that doesn’t get played much. Actually, I rarely listen to anything except on the trainer, so most of my quarter of the family music library is angry.
