Epic Tough Mudder Virginia Playlist

On June 14th, 2014, Team Star Wipe Films ran the Tough Mudder Virginia. But we didn’t want to just run it, we wanted to psych up our fellow Mudders in the process. So we carried an old school boom box (emblazoned with an Apocalypse Rock sticker, of course).  We spent hours deciding which songs to include and what order they should go in. There’s only so much you can fit on a 90 minute tape, and we wanted to make it epic. It was awesome how many times a song’s lyrics would line up exactly with what was happening on the course at the moment. So for those of you who want to relive the Tough Mudder Virginia, here’s our playlist. Oh, and a special thank you to anyone that ran in slow-motion whenever “Chariots of Fire” played.
