Can someone recommend songs/tracks for fast-paced action games?

I want to create my own custom soundtrack particularly for Vanquish and Bayonetta and I want to know what songs/tracks would fit in that game? If you haven't played both games, I'm just looking for any song (any genre) that would fit in fast-paced and epic battles.

my playlist usually consists of music by the bands clutch, the foo fighters, cage the elephant, and the dead kennedys, for those types of games, as for songs in particular ,

one eye dollar- clutch

sabertooth tiger- cage the elephant

soil to the sun- cage the elephant

james brown- cage the elephant

lets lynch the landlord- dead kennedys

white limo- foo fighters

most of the songs off of JET's first album

nimrods son- pixies

blister in the sun- the violent femmes

kiss off- violent femmes

but this is just me, your taste in music might differ from mine

Very nice, thank you.. I actually have a Dead Kennedys song on my playlist (Holiday in Cambodia). Any other recommendations from other genres?

Heaps of good stuff on Led Zeppelin II by Led Zeppelin and Disraeli Gears from Cream.
Jimi Hendrix has a great selection of tracks well suited for an Action game.
Spanish Castle Magic, All Along the Watchtower, Foxy Lady, Purple Haze, Voodoo Child and Machine Gun all come to mind.

Bullet for my Valentine has a lot of fast tracks, but they're not in everyone's taste. Atreyu might be good for you too. It's really hard to tell without knowing your taste in music.
