Kanye West’s ‘Stronger’ Named Greatest Workout Song of all Time

We’ll let you finish, Olivia Newton-John, but Kanye West has the greatest workout song of all time. At least that’s what Gold’s Gym found in their competition results.

The gym chain polled a number of celebrities for nominations and people voted on the options. Per the Gold’s Gym press release: “After an intense nationwide vote, his popular track, nominated by Super Bowl XLII champion Michael Strahan, survived a star-studded bracket of 64 iPod all-stars to be named the greatest workout song of all time.”

West’s Daft Punk sampled hit shared a competition block with Eminem’s “Lose Yourself,” Black Eyed Peas’ “Boom Boom Pow” and Guns N Roses’ “Welcome to The Jungle.” “Stronger” apparently won by a landslide.

The track, off Kanye’s Graduation , has supercharged lyrics that could pump anyone up, as Daft Punk robotically exclaims, “Work it, make it, do it, makes us, harder, better, faster, stronger.” West chimes in with “N-N-Now that that don’t kill me, can only make me stronger.”

The reward for the contest is a $5,000 donation on behalf of Gold’s Gym to Strahan’s charity of choice. The charity is the Health & Humanitarian Aid Foundation, “a non-profit organization dedicated to providing medical and humanitarian aid to those whose lives have been affected by famine, war, poverty or natural disaster.” Read more…
