the Ultra Beast 2012 playlist


Here’s the official playlist the team Trifecta put together for our road trip to Vermont. This is my interpretation of what would happen if this race had a soundtrack.

1) Gangam Style by Psy

The official theme song of the weekend and the Ultra Beast. It was nominated by my students, when I asked them for suggestions for a theme song. They said, “Miss, if you think of this song and the video during the race, you will be laughing too hard to feel tired”. They were right.

2) Eye of the Tiger by Survivor
Risin’ up straight to the top
Had the guts, got the glory
Went the distance
Now I’m not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive

3) Right Here, Right Now by Fatboy Slim

4) Breathe by Prodigy
Breathe the pressure
Come play my game Ill test ya
Psychosomatic addict insane

5) Faster Than Lightning (DJ Steve Porter Remix)
To go faster
(faster than lightning)
I need to work harder
(faster than bullet)
I need to keep driving, keep driving to the finish
And this… is where the glory begins

6) We Sweat Blood by Danko Jones
Bring me close to the edge dare me to die
Can’t call it driven when you’re driving
It’s easy to stay awake when your blood is boiling
You want to know why?

7) For Whom the Bell Tolls by Metallica
For a hill men would kill
They do not know
Stiffened wounds test their pride

8) Bodies by Drowning Pool
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor

9) We’re Gonna Win by Bryan Adams
We’re gonna win
Don’t want to be a loser – gonna win
‘Cause winnin’ really is the only thing
Get out of the way we’re comin’ in

10) We Are the Champions by Queen
I’ve had my share of sand kicked in my face –
But I’ve come through
We are the champions – my friends
And we’ll keep on fighting – till the end


Thank you all who contributed!

  1. I like this list. After seeing the terrible list that Men’s Health posted last week a friend of mine and I were working on a Top 20. We haven’t finished yet. I might take some inspiration from you 🙂 Love it!

    I was kind of disappointed to come back from that weekend only to find that Gangnam Style was actually the most popular song on this entire planet. I thought it was “our” song. LOL
    p.s. I am in love with Usain Bolt’s “song.”

  4. […] Mike yells. “With THIS song?”, I yell back. “You freakin’ bet!” This is the inaugural theme song of the Ultra Beast, and I’ll be damned if I fall off an obstacle when this thing is playing in the background. I […]
