Some of your songs make me stop the treadmill...I had to create a separate running playlist to avoid shuffle hitting them. And Harvey Danger's Flagpole Sitta, wow, didn't know anyone had that. Still, I could run a marathon with Crazy Train on loop. By far, the best song to run to. Overall, very strong list...

Friedmanite, thanks for the recommendations. I checked them out on iTunes, but I wasn't feeling them. Too lyrical, not enough energy.
