I need help. I used to be super into music and know what was happening, but I haven't read any music blogs for at least a year. And now I'm screwed, I tell you, SCREWED, because I need some running jams and I don't know where to turn!

I like to run to albums. Previous albums that have floated my boat: (1) LCD Soundsystem - Sound of Silver; (2) Girl Talk albums; (3) Kanye West My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

The Kanye album is my favorite for running because he's so arrogant. I need to be able to sing along to lyrics about how I am killing this shit while I run. I just started running again, and I'd never listened to that album before running before last week, and I'm suddenly running 3 miles without stopping when I used to struggle through 2.

Thoughts? Suggestions on other arrogant MCs who will fuel my runs?

ETA - I bolded what I'm looking for specifically. There have been a lot of awesome comments with good running tunes resources, but they're not exactly what I'm looking for! Thanks!
