Best Songs To Pump You Up
By vcpirkle on 5/23/11
[Andrew's Editor Note- Let this post be a lesson to all of us, including myself. Nathan is out for the next two days and I thought it would be fun to let one of our developers get in on the blogging action. Well, fun it may be... but Victor's music tastes appear to veer a little bit from what some may guess to be a golfer's "mainstream." I mean, "hardcore" in golf is Tiger Woods liking Nickelback. Sure- Victor's taste in music is better than that (by default), but I caution you to enter this post at your own risk- and please do leave suggestions at the end of your own favorite music to get you amped up.]
Well since Nathan is out of the office today, Andrew has asked me to write a blog post because he's too much of a lazy ass to do it himself. I'd much rather write a blog then do any real work so I accepted. The only problem with that is other than my recent hole in one at Mac 'n Bones Mini Golf and Grill I have no real golf experience. Instead of writing about a topic I know nothing about, or bragging about my hole in one (Nathan, shut up already):
Here is Victor’s list of songs to get you amped up.
1) First on the list would have to be Seether – Out of My Way. It has the perfect intro that will have anyone with a pulse up and jumping. It's also a great song to listen to while having road rage.
2) Second on the list is going to be Korn – Get Up partly because I just heard it this weekend partly because it's pretty freaking awesome. I'm a bit of a metal head anyways and I've recently jumped on the dubstep bandwagon and this song is a crazy mix of the two. It's like candy for my ears.
3) Third on the list is Limp Bizkit's cover of Faith. I'll save the original George Michael version for another list titled "Song's I Liked Till I Saw the Music Video." Limp Bizkit's version is simply a crowd pleaser and that will have everyone jumping.
Here is Victor's list of song’s I liked until I saw the music video:
1) First on the list will of course be George Michael - Faith. Seeing this video ruined the whole song for me. It oozes douchebaggery from every direction and makes me sick to my stomach. Actually, any photo of George Michael pretty much does that for me. You can't look at this picture and honestly tell me you don’t think the guy is a tool.
2) The next one is David Bowie – Dancing in the Street. I could have lived the rest of my life without ever knowing this happened but I saw it on family guy the other day and now I am forever scared. I can't go back and unwatch it. It's too late the damage has been done. What were you thinking, 80’s?
3) Last but not least, VIP let’s kick it! Vanilla Ice – Ice Ice Baby. I would like to think that I was too young and naive to ever like this track but I don’t know. If I could travel back in time and (-1) my 6 year old self I think I would. Jim Carey did a way better version of the song called White White Baby on "In Living Color."

battery-metallica. end of discussion. that intro just oooozes metal-head goodness.
Haha I love Mudvayne! I have their dragon's eye symbol tattoo on my back. I figured Mudvayne, Slipknot, Bullet, Rage, etc. were too heavy for a golf blog. I'll make that adjustment in the future. I haven't listened to enough Pantera but Cemetery Gates is pretty bad ass. www.youtube.com/watch?v=WyczwqRD2NI
@mattshver... anything off Master of Puppets... I'm partial to Sanitarium.
Pull me Under by Dream Theater always seems to cause the gas pedal to hit the floor.
Oh man, these songs will get you pumped, but I like my pre-course tunes to be a little smoother/more mellow.
@mjaber definitely. master was their best album, imo.
Kurt the Knife says:
I like vibes that smooth me out. Oscar Peterson among others do a good job.
cochise...audioslave...gets me going...
Kurt the Knife says:
McCoy Tyner is prolly the most present in my golf vibe collection.
@mattshaver- No argument here. Everything went down hill once Bob Rock got involved.
