Superhero soundtracks are my favorite thing to listen to while I'm lifting. Hard not to get psyched up and in the mood to move some heavy weight when I have my favorite badass superheros on my mind. Gotta keep lifting if I want my muscles to achieve superhero greatness, am I right?
I'm trying to put together a playlist I can throw on Spotify while I lift, and I already have something from pretty much every Marvel movie. I also don't limit it to superheros or musical scores, as long as it's geeky.
For example, Darth Vader isn't a superhero, but if you don't feel like the coolest person ever while ripping deadlifts off the floor to the Imperial March, especially Epica's hybrid heavy metal/orchestra version of it, then I just don't know what to do with you. And also, Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" isn't musical score, but thanks to Thor: Ragnarok, it now makes a great lifting song.
So what music from geeky sources do you guys enjoy? It doesn't even have to be music you lift to. But I will gladly listen to all your suggestions and add the ones I like to my playlist so I can hopefully avoid going down the rabbit hole of Spotify's suggested tracks (which usually aren't that great).
