I would love to climb Motorhead listening to NSTH, as it was bolted by the Remy brothers to that sound track.

Otherwise, silence.

Pure rage music helps get the last few reps out.

Rage against the machine
- wake up
- killing in the name of
- calm like a bomb
- bulls on parade

I also used to include Beastie Boys song Sabotage however the recent Star Trek film purloined it and ruined it for me.

I quite like the sound of the Feith Buidhe. And maybe a raven.

Agreed, when I was still doing weight training a zillion years ago, the gym in my judo club had mainly Sepultura, Metallica, Clawfinger, and Refused in a continuous loop.

For climbing, especially outdoors, I prefer silence.

Erm - R4!

Any fans of 'Absolutely' on here? Their TV show in the early 90's was brilliant, and their return to radio of late is a delight.

I have been revisiting the heavy metal of my teens for training tracks. Been listening to a lot of Pantera for strength stuff recently, but RATM is a great shout too!

I've been doing the same with early Metallica - Kill Em All, Master of Puppets and all mixed in with some RATM. My arms are stronger but my ears are trashed!

Master of Puppets is on my training list, along with anything by Pantera, Soundgarden and Korn. Chuck in Rammstein and maybe some Snoop or Ice T, circuit board ahoy!

Led Zeppelin The Immigrant Song. Cant wimp around while singing Valhalla I am Coming! Unfortunately in my head this keeps morphing into Donald where's your Troosers, which doesn't have quite the same effect.

And Come Up And See Me (Make Me Smile)...just because it does! A great "climbing" title too.
