Having given up trying to go off of other people's suggestions, I did my own research via iTunes and came up with my own compilations.
Without a doubt the all-time best erg song (in my experience): "Let It Rock" by Kevin Rudolf ft. Lil Wayne
Other songs that I find really good, though may vary depending on your taste:
- "Call on Me" ~ Eric Prydz (sort of a joke among my crew, but actually pumps everyone up)
- "Let's Go" ~ Trick Daddy ft. Lil Jon (a bit profane, but I cut out the stuff in the very beginning and the rest is great)
- "Get Loose" ~ T.I.
- "Til I Collapse" ~ Eminem
- "Bad Touch" ~ Bloodhound Gang (surprisingly turned out to be a really good erg song, try it)
- "Fire" ~ Joe Budden
- "Le Disko" ~ Shiny Toy Guns
- "Paper Planes" ~ M.I.A.
- "Do You Know" ~ Enrique Iglesias
And the classics that are good erg songs, though they don't necessarily follow the above criteria:
- "Welcome to the Jungle" ~ Guns N Roses
- "Shook Me All Night Long" ~ AC/DC
- and many other 80s rock
Go ahead and add any that you are particular fond of or have found to be effective.
