Erik Dresser,

Go time!

Here's row2k's list of the 15 erg songs for your winter 2017-2018 erg playlist.

A couple notes on how songs were selected for this winter's playlist:

  • All songs submitted by row2k readers
  • Each song is from the last year and a half. Songs from pre-2016 were excluded
  • Only one song per artist as there are many artists with multiple songs
  • We tried to include a variety of genres of music for a variety of types of erg pieces
  • Some contain some explicit lyrics
  • As always, no Miley Cyrus
  • Songs are listed alphabetically by artist
  • Spotify playlist can be found here or check out the embedded player below

The Chainsmokers, XYLO - Setting Fires
"Whenever I listen to it, I get hyped for racing and the spring season. ”

Cold War Kids, Bishop Briggs - So Tied Up
"It's got a great driving beat and has moments where it lulls a bit and then cranks back up again- kind of like a energy pop in the middle of your piece. Great song.”

Foo Fighters - La Dee Da

Gary Clark Jr., Junkie XL - Come Together
"Not only is it off the Justice League soundtrack so you can feel like a super hero while laying down some steady state, but it's also got some great guitar that can help push you through a 6k. Highly recommend.”

Imagine Dragons - Believer

Jeremih, Flo Rida - Tonight Belongs To U!
"Great song to get the heart rate pumping especially for those sprint pieces on the erg. Really gets the adrenaline going big time!”

Kendrick Lamar - DNA.

Massive Vibes - Burn The Stars
"This song is absolutely infectious, it forces those splits down when you didn't think you had it in you.”

NF - Outro
"Great buildup and very motivational lyrics.”

Pluto, ye. - Feel The Fire
"Evokes the intensity needed for the PHAT ergos!”

Portugal. The Man - Feel It Still
"Upbeat and keeps me going on a long erg piece!”

Thirty Seconds To Mars - Walk On Water
"A perfect blend of upbeat, heavy, and motivational to power you through even the toughest of test pieces!”

Tiesto, Sevenn - BOOM

Yogi, Skrillex, Pusha T, Moody Good, TrollPhace - Burial
"I don't even erg anymore, but this song makes me want to drop some phat ergs.”
