January 7, 2020
Erik Dresser,

Here's row2k's list of the 15 erg songs for your winter 2019-2020 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 or so. Songs from pre-2018 were excluded
  • Only one song per artist as there are many artists with multiple songs worthy of inclusion
  • We tried to include a variety of genres of music for a variety of types of erg pieces
  • Some contain some explicit lyrics
  • Songs are listed alphabetically by artist
  • Spotify playlist can be found here or check out the embedded player below

Alan Walker - Darkside
"Awesome SS/AT song with an amazing beat that really gets you going into the dark side and push through mentally.”

Andy Mineo - I Ain't Done
"Pure motivation, intense beat, good message.”


Bassnectar - It's About To Get Hectic

Bishop Briggs - CHAMPION

Blackway - What's Up Danger
"Winter training sucks. This song does not. Sit down, put this song on blast, and yam on that chain!”

Duckwrth - Start a Riot

Duke Dumont - The Power
"Great power tune to warm up and motivate you through interval pieces! Lyrics are very fitting for erging!”

Gashi - My Year
"I mean with lyrics like this song, singing along to this while erging will definitely help to make it the best year ever!”

Lizzo - Fitness
"Upbeat. Probably more of a steady state song, but pretty self explanatory what it's about. Who doesn't want to work out for Lizzo?”

Riton - Fake ID
"It's pretty sick and it’s by British people so that’s a funny plus.”

The Score - Can't Stop Me Now
"This is a great workout song because it's super motivating. The song has a great beat and the lyrics "can't stop me now" motivates a person and makes them believe they can do anything. ”

The Seige - I Am Defiant

Weezer - The End of the Game
"This one’s a banger no matter who you are. It’s a classic Weezer song, so the lyrics are a little sad and melancholic, but they’re set over a kick-ass Van Halen inspired track, and let’s be honest, if you’re listening to lyrics when you’re rowing, you need to row harder and stop thinking. With the 80s arena rock vibe given Weezer’s touch, this one will rock an erg room no matter what crew is erging, juniors through J Masters.”

"It’s an aggressive Rock-Rap fusion that’s great to end any piece to, long or short.”
