With highly polished music and video production, K-pop artists know how to swing a concept and express a mood. While most releases go for a dance or a romantic vibe, some songs will put you in the mood to fight:
This throwback Brown Eyed Girls track is as hard-hitting and dramatic as it is sultry and seductive, which makes it a great pump-up jam for venting your frustrations about society.
How NU’EST didn’t take over the K-pop scene with this song will forever be the biggest mystery in our books. “Action” is a hyped-up track with powerful lyrics to match.
Pretty much any BAP song will get you riled up, but this song and the accompanying music video will get you especially pumped for justice.
The pounding bass and soaring vocals in EXO’s “Monster” lend it some extra gravitas, the kind that’ll get you in the mood to stick it to the man.
Girls get the job done in Girls’ Day’s “Female President,” a powerful anthem for women in leadership and the young girls who look up to them.
Pumped up yet?
