The Top 10 Workout Songs for June 2014

Fort Wayne, IN – June 1, 2014 – This month's top 10 list provides a succinct argument for the dominance of electronic music on the pop charts. To put this into perspective, consider January of 1992, when Nirvana's albumNevermind famously replaced Michael Jackson's Dangerous as the number one album on the Billboard chart. This unlikely feat marked not just a change in fortune for Nirvana, but signaled a larger change in folks' tastes.
Skipping back to the present, the last month has seen the release of new singles by Katy Perry, Coldplay, Jennifer Lopez, and a collaboration between Justin Timberlake and (fittingly) Michael Jackson. As was the case in 1992, each of these chart toppers has been replaced by a newer act in a previously overlooked genre. To that end, none of the folks above made the cut in this month's list—as the majority of the votes went to club rockers like Avicii, Afrojack, 3LAU and Bright Lights.
Like fashion and film and most other cultural goings-on, music is cyclical. So, DJs won't be replacing pop stars entirely—not permanently at least. Moreover, there's plenty of room for outliers. The changing musical landscape doesn't seem to have hurt Pitbull or Imagine Dragons—both of whom turn up in the list below. But, if it seems like dance music has a near monopoly on the airwaves these days, this month's playlist is proof of that change.
History and context aside, there's a lot to be excited about here. Plus, if there was ever a time for huge beats and raging synths, it's the summer. So, check out a few of the high energy highlights below, grab a few favorites, and take them for a spin.
Here's the full list, according to votes placed at Run Hundred--the web's most popular workout music blog.
