What's On Your Clyde-pod?

What Clyde and Athena themed songs can we add to the playlist?

And what else?

HUGE variety, but for cycling I generally stick to a mix of classic rock, metal, and some pop stuff that my wife has put in our playlist - but I only fire up the ipod portion generally on longer rides.

For most of the time, I fire up Pandora on the stevejobsphone and rock out to my Who station.

People are missing the point of my joke. I was fishing for a list of songs about being big/fat/oversized.

"Fat" by Weird Al Yankovic.

His "I Love Rocky Road" fits this theme as well.

Brad Paisley's "Online" works too, since the song's protagonist describes himself as 5' 3" and overweight.

My player has a fairly ecclectic mix of stuff.

Metal playlist has things like Lamb of God, Meshuggah, Judas Priest, Vader and Pantera
Rockabilly playlist includes BR-549, Stray Cats, The Reverend Horton Heat and The Cramps
Punker list is some old-school stuff. Black Flag, Bad Brains, Circle Jerks, Minutemen. All the old SST bands.
My Oi! playlist gets the most rotation in the gym, with Angelic Upstarts, Blitz, Agnostic Front, The Business, etc.
I've got a Ska playlist with more old-school music. Jimmy Cliff, Desmond Dekker, Toots and the Maytals, with some newer stuff mixed in (Bad Manners, Judge Dread)
There's old techno/dancetronic like Prodigy, The Shamen, Eon, LA Style, Sunscreem, and Stereo MCs
There's new techno, which is mostly happy hardcore DJ mixes
And the shame of the collection is my pop/dance mix: Lady Gaga, Kid Cudi, Cybersutra, M.I.A. etc.

Anything from Meatloaf should be "Clyde Certified" by default.

Mostly "classic" rock (to quote a song.. when did Motley Crew become classic rock.. although in my case it's Boston, Styx, Queen, etc.).

I do have some acoustic stuff from Kfog's "Live from the Archives" and recently have been playing a lot of Coldplay because of this... (my other addiction)
