I am only 27 and love my new iPod. I wish it existed when I was still competing. Here is my playlist:
Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
Bodies - Drowning Pool
Rage Against the Machine - Know your Enemy
Dave Matthews - Grey Street (I don't know why either)
Metallica - Fuel
Metallica - Ride the Lightning
That's it. Keep it on repeat.

Quote from Hank Slam
I'm right there with you Rob! Only problem I ran into was that at meets you couldn't play "your" music, so it always felt like something was missing. So I stopped throwing to music and consequently threw farther in meets.
Lifting however was another story! Squats: Enter Sandman-Metalica. That big build up was perfect for wrapping knees and belting up, then BAMM, time to move the Iron! Big benches came to Searchin'-Lynyrd Skynyrd.
The "Freebird" guitar solo works just for about anything else!
Now throwing occasionally as a master or just for my own enjoyment "I'm still alive" by Pearl Jam is the ticket!
My sophomore daughter, Meagan, (Discus/Shot) gets cranked up to Wolfmother. Rob....check them out!

Quote from Happy Thrower
I cant beleive that of all my throwing friends in the USA, that there's no country music buffs. So here's my contribution.
For Masters / Comebackers
Toby Keith - I aint as good as I once was (but I'm as good once as I ever was
For the after party
Garth brooks - Aint goin down till the sun comes up
Or a new on called - I came for 1 and left at 2
Others I like are
The devil went down to Geogia (for Don Babitt and his crew)
Honkey Tonk badonkadonk - I thnk we're all had neck injuries looking at a little badonkadonk
Ring of Fire (for our friends who light things before throwing them)
All my rowdy friends (any group of throwers will do)
For those comparing the past and present
It was 19-something (reminiscing about the 70's and 80's)
For alll those people who keep talking about big fouls like they mattered
There's a tear in my beer
For Montana University throwers and alumni
Save a horse - Ride a cowboy
For those who can handle the adversity
I love a rainy night
The night the lights went out in Geogria
And here's hoping that someday this applies to the NTCA
We're comin to your city
Well, I think you got the point.
Throw far. Throw often.

Quote from slug
We got a new weight room this year with a new sound system. The only rule I have when we are lifting (a la Henry Ford): You can listen to music from any Ipod....as long as it is mine!
This was done for several reasons, the two biggest being:
1) can't stand today's music (for the most part)
2) I know there won't be any 'naughty' words (important with a mixed bag of HS athletes
Let em whine! I'm not chaning anything!
Old throwers rule!!

Quote from JRapp
The one thing I hate about Music being played over a PA System at a meet is they always do it during warm-ups. So, of course, all the throwers get amp'd up and throw the hell out of the thing during warm-ups and then flat-line during the actual competition. As a coach this was a little annoying.

Quote from Tony Ciarelli
Most of the time I play what I like, sometimes I play what the kids like and sometimes I play what I know they don't like. Opera, Country, Bluegrass, anything I know they hate and tell them sometimes in competition it is not going to go how they want it to, but they will still have to perform. I like to see how they react under adverse conditions.

1. Miracle on Ice
2. Rocky 1
3. Vision Quest (The part when he is warming up in the mat room before he wrestles "Shute" and the song "Lunatic Fringe" is blasting. He then opens the door to the gym and the crowd is going crazy. That always gets me pumped up)
4. Remember the Titans
5. Rocky 2 and 3

Does anyone know where I would be able to get a hold of the music from the Randy Barnes DVD? I checked with Randy himself a few years back and the band is called Mo'Bigleys and the CD was called some kinda something.

Quote from 70footer
Ok, I am inspired gang....I'm gonna check out WOLFMOTHER, thanks Ron...and Rage against the Machine to throw with this year. I also like the idea of ole country....Hank Jr. stuff , it reminds me of an old training partner , he would drive up in his beat up old '72 Dodge Dart , it had no paint , no windows and no floor boards ...haha sounds like the cars most throwers drive....so he would drive up and have HANK WILLIAMS JR. blarring on fulltilt ...it was so loud and with no resistance from such normal things like windows and floor boards , it was like being in the car even though he was still in the parking lot ...it'll be good to hear Hank Jr. again in the throwing area with "Family Tradition" , All my Rowdy Friends" and my favorite was a duet with Hank jr. and Waylon singing ''The Conversation'' ...bout the music and the man....haw!

I know I'm the one who said I never use music, but thank Jud mentioned Rage Against the Machine!!
Every single band on the planet pales in comparison to them in terms of being "getting fired up" music. A lot of guys get fired up to various rock bands because they're so "hard" or "loud" or "heavy", and I just shake my head because those guys have no idea...
Yes RATM is one of my favorite bands haha.

What is wrong with this world? Another school shooting at Northern Illinois University? My buddy was in the building when this happened and described it to me in horrific details. I can not believe people think this is the answer to their emotional problems.

Quote from Christian Salas
I've recently discovered "Van Halen" thanks to that shot put video compilation. It's nice, but if I want to get pumped up I break out the Glenn Miller. And if I REALLY want to get crazy, out comes the Benny Goodman 1937 Carnegie Hall Concert! Grrrrr....
