Top 7 motivational rock songs for kick-ass motivation

It's a well-known fact of human behavior that beliefs become stronger by repetition. Even if a statement wasn't a belief initially, it can get converted into one if we get exposed to it enough number of times.

Beliefs are nothing but memories of the past. If you recall your past memories, you’ll realize that you remember events associated with an emotion much more strongly. Songs are rhythmic and elicit emotion in you. This is a perfect recipe for a solid memory.

A song not only elicits emotion but sends you its message repeatedly. Due to this, your mind is very likely to alter its belief system so that it matches the message in the song.

Motivational rock songs have strong, positive messages in them and hearing such songs will definitely keep your belief system healthy and provide you with the right kind of attitude to face the ever-increasing life challenges.

7) Indestructible - Disturbed

Disturbed is easily one of my favorite bands. Almost all the songs that I've heard from Disturbed are good. The lead vocalist's voice is just sick and it's amazing the types of songs he can pull off. The song is from their 2008 album titled Indestructible.

6) Under The Knife - Rise Against

I stumbled on this song while I was searching for a track I had heard in the movie Never Back Down. I was surprised that I hadn't paid attention to this brilliant track from the same movie.

5) No Giving Up - Crossfade

Powerful lyrics reminding the importance of never giving up, even if you've given everything you got. The tune is very catchy too.

4) Hater - Korn

A slap in the face of haters who try to bring you down. Though originally written about bullying, it is the ultimate response to all kinds of haters out there hell-bent to watch you fall.

3) Stand Up And Fight - Turisas

The lyrics are gold and relatable to everyone who's struggling in any way in life and is on the brink of quitting. This song will pull you back from the abyss of hopelessness.

The song is from their 2012 album titled Stand Up and Fight.

2) Hungry - Rob Bailey & The Hustle Standard
Perfect workout song. This will turn you into a beast, guaranteed. 

1) Sticks & Bricks - A Day To Remember

If you can't get motivated by this song, there's nothing that can motivate you. The best thing about this song is how it fuels motivation through anger.

Body language: Gestures of the head and neck

The head nod

Body language: Hands touching the head

Scratching the hair
When we scratch our hair using one or more fingers anywhere on top, back or side of the head, it signals the emotional state of confusion. Watch any student trying to solve a difficult problem and you are likely to observe this gesture. There isn't a better place to observe this gesture than an exam hall, where students often have no idea what the question paper is trying to say!

Crossing the arms across the chest is a classic gesture of defensiveness. This defensiveness usually manifests as uneasiness, shynessor insecurity.

Body language: Hands touching the neck

Rubbing the back of the neck
Ever seen two furry animals, like dogs, in a fight? If you have then you might have noticed that when they are about to attack each other, the fur over their neck stands on its end and makes the animals appear bigger. The bigger the animals appear the more they are able to intimidate each other.

How our past experiences shape our behavior and personality

Our beliefs and needs are the strongest factors that govern our behavior. Ultimately, it all comes down to beliefs because a need is also a belief- a belief that we lack something.

Body language: The crotch displays of men

When it comes to attraction, males and females use different signals to display their attractive qualities. 

Body language: Crossing the legs

Crossing the legs, like crossing the arms, indicates a defensive attitude. While arm-crossing is a subconscious attempt by a person to protect his vital organs- the heart and the lungs, crossing the legs is an attempt to protect the genitals.
