New Wave Workout Playlist

Listen to music that makes it much easier to run so far away
 / 
Terry Lott

It might seem like 1980s kitsch to some, but the truth is this: It's harder to find a genre of music more fun to listen to than New Wave. Combining the energy of punk with the incessantly catchy hooks of Top 40 pop, New Wave was the dominant mainstream and alternative genre for a spell, blaring out of every mall, tape deck, college campus and discotheque in Reagan Era America. New Wave is also one of the most energizing types of music to listen to when you're pounding the pavement, pumping iron or working the elliptical. So take a cue from A Flock of Seagulls' signature hit and start sweatin' to synths with our New Wave Workout Playlist.

July 21: 5SOS Get Down in the Dirty Laundry

July 21: 5SOS Get Down in the Dirty Laundry

We know and love 5 Seconds of Summer's goofy side and it was on full display for a livestream with MTV earlier today. In a segment that surely made fans squeal, the guys riled through a pile of dirty laundry don a slew of ridiculous undergarments. While Michael looks content in his pink boxers/thong combo, we can't say the same about Calum, with Luke and Ashton looking equally perplexed, as to how to layer a lacy G-String over his highlighter-yellow shorts.
