    Default Good music for Pumping people up

    I have to DJ a Pep Rally for our D1 Football team.

    any ideas for some good songs that get people going.

    i was thinking along the lines of
    Dada life -Kick out the epic
    maybe some Aoki
    Who is ready to jump- Chuckie


    Any other ideas?

    Play music they know, and add a twist to it.

    Good luck

    Bumaye - dimitri Vegas and like mike remix

    Who (pharoahe Monch sample) - tujamo and plastik funk - or you could just use Simon Says by Pharoahe Monch.

    Stand up (halftime) - Henry Fong

    Do guys really get motivated by that electro/progressive house stuff? I can't stand it when I work out at the gym.

    Not sure how a room full of everyday people will like to bangout to a bunch of thrashy electro.

    Bumaye is by Major Lazer, Diplo is pretty much a household name these days, and it's just a good song to get up to.

    The Pharoahe Monch sample is instantly recognizable. Then again I guess I'm a bit older than most college age kids by a year or two - or 5 for freshman, but I assume Simon Says is still a well known sample.

    Henry Fong's stand up is pretty easy to groove to and the marching theme fits in with a pep rally.

    Or you could just play jock jams volume 7 I guess? I dunno. Be cliche and open up with some fatboy slim Whomp! Then be ironic and play a lesser known Fatboy Slim track. The hipsters will go apeshit, you will be a god amongst individuals who were Gods before it was cool, and became human as an ironic display of their godlike powers.
