I'm with you. I don't know how some of those cats do that with their MP3's and all. I don't mind the music on in the gym. I can tune it out or listen to it as need be. My favorite music (horn driven funk/soul and contemporary big band) isn't condusive to smashing weights. I will say this though. For my money, you can't beat old school Rush when it comes to lifting music. The Spirit of Radio or Tom Sawyer, etc.
