Yeah, okay, like you we probably heard this song 142,000 times the year it came out.

But, admit it: it does really get your blood up; and it does genuinely rock.

As pop songs go, this is one that we should all still be playing in the 22nd century. Also, we have to admit, Damone is so rich and sweet and beautiful they sometimes make us weepy. But they've also got the smokin' tempo and the energy to make us get up and kick some ass (in our workouts).

Pardon us while we pause to point out that the new Birthday Massacre album, Walking With Strangers, is pretty damned awesome from first song to last. You might not want every single track in your workout playlist - but you'll want this one, yo.

Okay, sue us - we love Paramore. (Yeah, we know, so does your 13-year-old little sister . . .) But with the huge voice on that girl, the tight guitars, the great riffs, and the soaring melodies - plus just a little bit of an edge - you've got some really winning workout music here.

"Asskicking" may or may not be the first word that springs to mind to describe Paramore. But "awesome" might be.

You don't have to like Courtney Love - who, after all, really does? - to get off to some of her songs. This one will certainly get you moving. Both angry and arrogant, which is a strange - but strangely winning - combination.
