Ready for a new playlist to rock your summer of workouts? Let's just say that my playlist could definitely use some updating, I found myself listening to tunes from 10 years ago during the Soldier Field 10. It's RunHundred.com to the rescue with its top 10 workout songs for June. And unlike months past where old favorites have ranked among the favorites, this month has more new songs than it does old. Or so I've been told as I'm the one who has to listen to snippets of these songs before I recognize them.
The singles from Usher and Linkin Park's new albums are out—along with Pitbull's contribution to the Men in Black III soundtrack. Kelly Clarkson's “Stronger” returns to the top 10, but this time it's a remix that makes the song sound completely different, unless that's just me. And rounding out the list are some artists I know I recognize from earlier in the year where Maroon 5, Taylor Swift, and Cee Lo paired up with Wiz Khalifa, B.o.B., and Slaughterhouse.
Here's the full list of songs you might want to work out to, according to votes placed at Run Hundred, the web's most popular workout music blog.
