    Top 100 Pregame Pump-Up Songs of All Time (1)

    Editor's Note: Click here for an updated list on the best pregame pump-up songs of all time!

    What do you look to when you need to get pumped up during warm-ups pregame or to lift weights? The most effective option for many athletes is to play music.

    Football, basketball, baseball, hockey, track and soccer—yes, even soccer—players, can harness the adrenaline rush they trigger listening to these songs to receive a physical edge during competition.

    This is a remake of an earlier pump-up list.

    There are three classifications of pump-up songs:

    First, there's the "inspirational" track. The lyrics are the sole focus of this type of song.

    The next class of song is "swagger." These pump-up songs all have pride-centered lyrics that build up confidence.

    The last type is a "fight" song. This music is exactly what it sounds like; what you listen to before a fight.

    Here are the top 100 pregame pump-up songs of all-time:
