Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. In an effort to help out ade dut: I throw the question out to all ARRSE Members.

    What "Thumping Tunes" will get you out the door and motivated to run even on a bad day?

    Ipod Podcast "Podrunner," works as you can select certain Beats Per Minute and you body adjusts to the rythm however tunes can be a bit hit and miss.
  2. Anything with a steady rhythm really, but i found a finnish breakdancing band, Bomfunk Mc's, has really good beats that fit in perfectly with a good pace for doing 1.5 miles. I guess at the end of the day it's either personal preference or the classic eye of the tiger.
  3. A good acdc compilation helps me get round but I still get good samaritans asking if I need an ambulance at the end.
  4. Some of my favourites:
    The Clash 'safe european home'
    Van Halen 'jump'
    Green Day 'basket case'
    Zolof Rock & Roll Destroyer 'argh I'm a pirate'
    The Living End 'whos gonna save us?'

    Make sure you have enough to mix it up a bit though as if you get bored of your music your run is going to be even harder.

    I Like to Move It - Reel 2 Real ft. The Mad Stuntman
    Blood Sugar - Pendulum

    Ace of Spades - Motorhead
    Plug in Baby - Muse
    Points of Authority/99 Problems - JZ vs Linkin Park
    Voodoo People (Pendulum mix) - Prodigy
  6. I always start by running to "Jesus of Suburbia" by Green Day because it`s a fast beat and it`s 9 minutes long, so i always try and run 1.5 miled before it finishes. But an inspiring song to get you up and out is "Who wrote holden coulfield" by "Green Day"

    There's a boy who fogs his world and now he's getting lazy
    There's no motivation and frustration makes him crazy
    He makes a plan to take a stand but always ends up sitting.
    Someone help him up or he's gonna end up quitting

    when i read that it summed me up.
