11. Eminem: “Lose Yourself”

For runners, this song is always on tap for the last mile when we need to zone out and rap the words in our heads. However, as evidenced by its popularity around the sports world, it’s not only runners that use it to get amped-up when winding down a long run.

Let’s face it, success should be the only option for any athlete!

12. C+C Music Factory: “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)”

It is sure that any song which was released in 1990 has some staying power amongst sports fans, isn’t it?

Although the ones who appear in the video aren’t even the same person, Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) is still one of the songs that get people pumped up.

13. Jay-Z and Kanye Ft. Rihanna: “Run This Town”

This is one of the newer songs added to an arena’s playlist. The only way to tell your opponent that you’re the best is letting two of the biggest rappers in the world do it for you.

14. Zombie Nation: “Kernkraft 400”

I’m sure that this is the kind of song which can piss you off and get your tipsy behinds out of your seats and moving whenever you hear it.

Without sports, where would this German techno song ever be played? Absolutely nowhere!

15. The White Stripes: “Seven Nation Army”

Thanks to it becoming the theme song for many soccer clubs around Europe, this song gained most of its popularity overseas. Whenever someone says the famous, “Ohh, ohh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhhh, ohhhhh,” it gets every fan going.

16. Van Halen: “Jump”

While we really like this song due to the rendition Adam Sandler had on his answering machine on the movie Big Daddy, it’s also cool to hear during a sporting event.

Hey, you might as well jump!
