If you're a Rock fan, you'll be aware that Rock music helps to raise your energy levels quickly. It creates a buzz, that re-energizes you. In this post I'd like to share songs that help me to get the buzz back into the day...

Walk by Pantera

Pantera was hailed as one of the pioneers of Thrash metal. This song is one of the heaviest metal songs, & one of the most popular ones as well. The commercial success of this song was of gargantuan proportions. Just one listen to this song takes your energy levels higher...

Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes

Jack & Meg White came out with this killer song, which is supposed to have the third catchiest guitar riff of all times( the catchiest guitar riff was from 'Smoke on the water' by Deep Purple, & the second catchiest was from 'Smells like teen spirit' by Nirvana). From the opening lyrics:"I'm gonna fight em' off, a seven nation army couldn't hold me back...", & the awesome guitar work, one easily get's transported to a higher energy level....

Acquiesce by Oasis

"I don't know what it is that makes me feel alive, I don't know how to wake the things that sleep inside..." sings Liam Gallagher at the opening of this killer of a song. The song appeared on the album 'Master plan', a B sides compilation. Often referred to as the best friendship song by the Mancunian Rock band, it definitely takes you to a higher energy plane...

Fuel by Metallica

The most commercially successful Heavy metal band in history has been well known for belting out high energy track after track. My personal favorite energy upper is this track. With James Hetfield shouting:" Gimme fuel, gimme fire, gimme that which I desire...", the song explodes, & keeps the energy level at gargantuan proportions....

Song 2 by Blur

This is the 2nd song from the album 'Blur', it reached number 2 position on the UK charts, & is 2 minutes long- couldn't be more aptly named right?!. Damon Albarn & crew have umpteen platinum singles & albums to their credit, but none are as power packed as this song..."Wooo Hooo..."

Tub thumper by Chumba Wumba

This song gained cult following, because of the powerpacked lyrics & awesome music. Played at stadiums before Cricket & Football matches, the song definitely takes you to a highly charged energy zone. The chorus-"I get knocked down, but I get up again...You're never gonna keep me down...", is highly addictive, to say the least...

Rock you like a hurricane by The Scorpions

The Scorpions have way too many platinum singles & albums to their credit. But my favorite 'Rock hurricane', is this track. This hurricane of a track only takes your energy levels higher, & causes absolutely no damage to your house, car or pets, I assure you!!

Machinehead by Bush

Though Gavin Rossdale & his band were often considered as Nirvana wannabes for long, this is one mother of a track. The lyrics & music are brutally energetic & addictive...

Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana

The song that catapulted Nirvana to superstardom & kicked off the 90s Grunge Rock revolution of the 90s was inspired by a deodorant brand called 'Teen spirit'. With an uber addictive guitar riffage, & Cobain's graty vocals, this song does take your energy levels higher each time...If only Nirvana wasn't this negative & self destructive...

Asche zu asche by Rammstein

The German Rock outfit most remembered for their unbelievable guitar riffs, & pyrotechnics on stage, came out with this gem of a song. Till Lindemann's vocals and the music stucture are breath taking & energizing......

Though music helps to take your energy levels higher, I would like to advise the youth of today to avoid using drugs to get higher....The damage caused by these so called 'uppers' is severe & often irreversible....
