Satan Sue Reigns Supreme

I’m back from the gym, feeling nice and buff(ish). While on the cardio machines, I happened to notice that everyone else was wearing some kind of personal music device. I like that, being in a crowd, each of us lost in our own little world. I was the only one with an iPod, so I win. Satan Sue is a great personal trainer/motivator. Exercising is much easier when you have a portable concert strapped to your hip. Besides, I’ve never heard of a tour that opens with Metallica, then moves to Jimi Hendrix, Slayer, Iron Maiden, and then closes with King Diamond. For no raisin at all, here is Satan Sue’s current cardio lineup:

  1. The Hurdy Gurdy Man – Butthole Surfers
  2. Wasting My Hate – Metallica
  3. Ring of Fire – Johnny Cash
  4. Bring Your the Slaughter – Iron Maiden
  5. Awful – Hole
  6. Leather Rebel – Judas Priest
  7. Pussy Whipped – S.O.D.
  8. Meet the Creeper – Rob Zombie
  9. In Nomine Satanas – Venom
  10. Shrine – King Diamond
  11. By Demons Be Driven – Pantera
  12. God Send Death – Slayer
  13. (We Are) The Road Crew – Motörhead
  14. Identity – S.O.D.
  15. Inside Out – Eve 6
  16. My Michelle – Guns N' Roses
  17. Kill Again – Slayer
  18. Living Dead Girl – Rob Zombie
  19. Hero of the Day – Metallica
  20. Sex and Death – Motörhead
  21. Hooks in You – Iron Maiden
  22. Loser [LP Version] – Beck
  23. Love Me Like a Reptile – Motörhead
  24. Sun and Steel – Iron Maiden
  25. Manic Depression – Jimi Hendrix Experience
  26. Love To Hate – Slayer
  27. Kill Yourself – S.O.D.
  28. You're Crazy – Guns N' Roses
  29. Painkiller – Judas Priest
  30. Where Eagles Dare – The Misfits
  31. All My Little Words – The Magnetic Fields
  32. Can I Play With Madness – Iron Maiden
  33. Fucking Hostile – Pantera

Personal note – Rob Zombie’s Meet the Creeper is the best cardio song ever; lively, a good beat, and you can dance to it. It’s what disco should have been. Every time I hear that song, I get a vision of zombies doing step aerobics (that’s Night of the Living Dead type zombies, not shuffling George Romero’s).

And the beat goes on, out

Though I don't like all of those tunes, many are very cool. I've seen Zombie a number of times, and though I'm burned out on him right now, he puts on a hell of a show. And who can ever not love Pantera? Maybe after the recent tragedy the rest of the boys will reunite someday. As for workouts, here are some of the tunes that I choose:

Megadeth: Mechanix
Manowar: Kings of Metal
Seether: Fine Again
Pro-Pain: The Stench of Piss
Anthrax: Belly of the Beast
Judas Priest: Blood Stained
Metallica: Dyer's Eve
KORN: Blind

I need an IPOD....someday I guess. Can't wait until you can easily jack one into the home stereo or car CD player, etc.

Good post by the way. My brother and I had a private Aikido class today and he played the STP album with "Sour Girl" which I hadn't heard, very cool. Last week it was an old Twisted Sister album "Come out and Play" --I think it was called but not sure, even for me, that's way way back.

Thanks for the music recommendations. Satan Sue is perpetually hungry.

just catching up after being out of commission for a bit. some great songs there, grant. hopefully it won't offend you if i give some of my workout inspirations that maybe you will give a shot.

IRON MAIDEN- pascendale
DARK ANGEL- death is certain (life is not)
BLUE OYSTER CULT- burnin' for you

a small sampling, but please give them a try (especially "wolf" you will be in awe of its pace.)
