Coming in at # 14 on my favorite rock songs of the 1980's series is the Eye of the Tiger, by Survivor, it was a huge hit, from the movie Rocky 3, there couldn't have been a better song for it, it was also a # 1 hit on the billboard hot 100 and, in my opinion, it's the greatest work out song ever made, always got me pumped. Here is a small sample of the lyrics, it's the 3rd verse chorus. It's the eye of the tiger. It's the thrill of the fight. Risin up to the challenge of our rival. And, the last known survivor, Stalks his prey in the night. And, he's watchin us all with the eye of the Tiger. I guess Queens another one bites the dust was also considered, but they didn't allow it, for me personally I prefer this song though. Queen will be in my favorite rock songs of the 70's series though. Some information verified at Wikipedia.

Eye Of The Tiger broke the mold of the Rocky Balboa franchise music feature songs from the first two Rocky movies that had music from Bill Conti as the lead artist.

Yeah, it goes with the movie perfectly. Rocky 3 is one of my favorites, would probably be my favorite if Mick didn't die in it, but loved Stallone vs Mr. T, that was huge.

@teamfreak16 Yes, that was awesome too. Hulk's big screen debut as Thunderlips. I think in Hulk's book he said he got to practice boxing with Forman during this or something like that.

I agree that Eye of the Tiger is one of the best workout songs ever. I also liked working out to Holding Out For A Hero by Bonnie Tyler.

Jim Peterik, founder of Survivor, lives in the suburb in which I taught. I did have one of his children in my class. Survivor came to school to perform one afternoon. Nice group of fellows in that band and they handed out free CDs to all. Needless to say, Jim and his family live in a mansion in the upscale suburb in which I could never afford to live, but teaching there was fun since quite a few celebrities sent their kids to our school.
