Best Zombies, Run Music

As a big fan of Zombies, Run (the amazing workout app that has you fighting in the zombie apocalypse by jogging), I’m always looking for sweet jams to compliment my zombie running escapades.


Below are some favorite recommendations. Some are perfect because they mention monsters or even zombies in their lyrics! Others deal with dire apocalyptic scenarios, some mention running specifically, while still others are just classic great exercise tunes!
