Need motivation to get through the winter? Try these songs.

A gambling site called Gala Bingo commissioned some research about motivational songs. They went through 450,000 Spotify playlists and collected the songs that appear the most. These tracks allegedly pump people up more than any others–or are at least on the most motivational playlists.

1) ‘Till I Collapse’ – Eminem & Nate Dogg (Appears on 81% of all playlists categorized as “motivational.”)
2) ‘Remember the Name’ – Fort Minor & Styles of Beyond
3) ‘Can’t Hold Us’ – Macklemore, Ryan Lewis & Ray Dalton
4) ‘Believer’ – Imagine Dragons
5) ‘SICKO MODE’ – Travis Scott
6) ‘Eye of the Tiger’ – Survivor
7) ‘POWER’ – Kanye West
8) ‘Hall of Fame’ – The Script &
9) ‘Thunderstruck’ – AC/DC
10) ‘Centuries’ – Fall Out Boy
