30 Punk Workout Songs

Punk rock might be the music of rebellious youth. But it also makes for some damn good workout tunes!

What do you get when you combine a garage, a drum set, a couple electric guitars, a microphone, and a song about sticking it to the man? You get punk rock. The emergence of bands like the Ramones and the Clash in the 70s gave rise to the mohawked, leather-jacket-wearing, antiestablishment sub-culture we still love today.

Punk rock's impact on music and culture has become more mainstream as the decades have worn on. Bands such as Blink-182 and the Offspring took the fast-paced, hard-edged melodies from their predecessors and brought them into high schools everywhere.

We want to celebrate punk in its manifold derivatives by putting them on one playlist for you to workout to. So, don your spiked bracelet and put on your black eyeliner. It's time to lift for counter culture, sweat against the power structure, and build a body that marks you as a free-thinking individual.
