Extreme rockers Death Division are set to release their new EP Angels of the Black Dawn, Part One on June 24, 2016 (pre-order HERE) so we’re helping to get the word out in a fun way! Co-formed in 2012 by veteran bassist Jerry Montano (The Deadlights, Nothingface, Danzig, Hellyeah), who has sold over two million records worldwide in his career, we asked Montano to submit something unique and what we got was this gnarly TOP 10 list of music that pumps him up when in the gym!

10. Drowning Pool – “Tear Away”
This song takes me back to the good ol’ days hanging with my boy Dave Williams. It just always brings a smile to my face and it ROCKS.

09. Avenged Sevenfold – “Chapter Four”
This song is so sick, I feel like I’ve been taken on a musical journey. This album CRUSHES.

08. My Chemical Romance – “Mama”
This is one of those songs I wish I had written. MCR is a huge influence on me musically and dynamically. Though “Disenchanted” is my favorite song by them, this one kicks my ass when I’m working out!

07. NOFX – “60%”
How can anyone NOT love this OPUS – ha! I grew up hanging out with these guys as a teen so I always have a soft spot for the boys… Damn great songs, KILLER ENERGY.

06. Of Mice & Men – “Public Service Announcement”
This song brings out my inner most NOTHINGFACE MONSTER. This was one of my favorite albums of last year.

05. Rise Against – “I Don’t Want To Be Here Anymore”
Great songwriting. Awesome structure and the angst in this man’s voice is like no other.

04. Social Distortion – “Highway 101”
This is one of my ALL time favorite bands. This makes me want to drive PCH all the way to Venice….

03. Bad Religion – “Los Angeles Is Burning”
Bad Religion are another favorite of mine. This song does it for me like a mofo! Awesome track, Dynamic lyrics. Plus my buddy Greg Heston is on it.

02. Pantera – “The Great Southern Trendkill”
There are no words or explanation needed. RELENTLESS GOD MACHINE.

01. Avenged Sevenfold – “Hail To The King”
The Avenged Sevenfold guys are family to me, I could go on forever about them. This track is my go-to for inspiration when I’m at the. gym.., pre-workout. Kind of an all-around Vibe – Raises me up and gets me ready to ROCK!
