Workout Playlist

I'm needing some new music to get me motivated while working out. I listen to more rock music but during my workout I need something that has a good fast beat. I just added Katy Perry's Dark Horse. Something like that would be great. What do you recommend from your playlist?

    Here's mine:

    Don't Stop Believing, Journey
    Stronger, Kelly Clarkson
    Burn, Ellie Goulding
    Wake Me Up, Avicci

    And my nerdy stuff from the Pitch Perfect Soundtrack:
    Bellas Finals
    Don't Stop the Music
    Since U Been Gone

    What I do is go on Amazon and look for the workout compilations (like, rock workout music) and listen to the samples and buy that way. I mean, aside from my Pitch Perfect nerd stuff ;)

    - Damned by Superhuman.
    - And the Dead Were at My Feet by Superhuman.
    - Venice Rooftops by Jesper Kyd.
    - Fight or Flight by Jesper Kyd.
    - The Pacific Rim main theme.
    - The Avengers theme.
    - Various Florence and the Machine songs including Cosmic Love, No Light No Light, Spectrum, What the Water Gave Me, and Rabbit Heart.
    - Radioactive by Imagine Dragons.
    - Ratonhnhaké:ton by Lorne Balfe
    - Sea Shanties from Assassin's Creed including Drunken Sailor, Randy Dandy, and Fish in the Sea.
    - Brennisteinn by Sigur Rós.
