Top 10 Workout Songs for Burning Holiday Calories

This holiday season, we ate it all: The turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, sweet potato mash, cornbread casserole, sausage and peas, stuffing, brussel sprouts, and itsy bitsy little dinner rolls toasted and smeared with lotsa butter. 

We scarfed every gingerbread cookie in sight and compulsively sucked on candy canes. 

We excused ourselves from Midnight Mass to chug egg nog and pass out in an alley behind the church. 

And we plan to spend New Year's Eve looking at our space phone in a Chinese buffet. 

What we're getting at is that once 2013 is here and life goes back to the peak of droll mundanity, it's gonna be time to put down the pie and pick up the dumbbell. Here are the 10 best songs to help burn some of those seasonal extra calories. 

10. Iron Maiden - "Run To The Hills"

"Run To The Hills" holds a special place on our iTunes "U Da Man" playlist because it's the first time we (and the rest of the world) heard golden age-era vocalist Bruce Dickinson. And, besides, if one were to "run to the hills" of South Florida, that would mean the trash mountains on the side of 95. That's a serious workout!

9. Daft Punk - "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger."

You will be every single one of these things if you listen to Daft Punk while pumping iron.

Upcoming Events

8. AC/DC - "Thunderstruck"

We have mostly known this arena rock scorcher from a drinking game of the same name, the rules of which dictate that revelers stand in a circle and chug the fuck out of some beer every time Brian Johnson screams, "Thunder!" And you can't stop until he says it again. Maybe this could be incorporated into a workout regimen?
