The 25 Best Workout Songs Ever

This playlist has been a long time coming. Why? Because WE LOVE MUSIC! And we especially love to jam to tunes when we work out (guilty pleasures, anyone?). So we have—with your awesome help on Twitter—picked the top 25 workout songs of all time. (Gosh knows, we needed your help. Otherwise the list would have consisted of only Gwen Stefani, Madonna and Britney Spears!) Oh, and note that the list is in no particular order, although No. 1 really is the best!
