The Classic Metal Workout Playlist

I went through some serious metal phases in my teenage and young adulthood years. And although I don't follow the new metal coming out too closely anymore, I do still respect the genre and love to revisit it from time to time. I especially find myself reaching for metal when I workout. There's just something about the in-your-face, aggressive nature of heavy metal that gets you pumped up, keeps you focused, and helps you overcome the pain. It works equally well for a cardio or a free weight workout. Just put the headphones on, crank up an hour-long metal playlist and you've got no need for a personal trainer. I mean, if you were to give up with Slayer thundering in your ears...  well, that would be so totally un-metal.

This playlist includes 15 of my favorite classic metal workout tracks. What would you add?
