Michael Phelps Has Horrid Taste in Music

Just when I thought swimming God Michael Phelps could do no wrong, I found this ‘Celebrity Playlist’ on Rhapsody that made me gag.  So what does the Adonis listen to pre-race to get fired up?  Twista, Usher, Outkast, Eminem and GUnit.  Blech. Sorry Michael, I tend to judge a man by the music he keeps and you just fell into the abyss on my cool quotient.  But hey, with a body like that, I can forgive and forget.

Go ahead, stream Michael’s playlist on Rhapsody – if you dare.

  1. I can see where Phelps is coming from. What do you listen to to get fired up? I can say from experience if I’m biking up a steep, miles-long hill, Kanye gets me up there faster than Sufjan, though I think Sufjan is “better”.

  2. The mentality I understand too, being a competitive swimmer myself. I just find the selections a bit pedestrian. But hey, I’m a music snob! For me, I can imagine a playlist with the likes of LCD Soundsystem, Cold War Kids, Caribou, Cut Copy, maybe some Raconteurs and even a little Teddybears and Panther.

    I recall relying heavily on Beastie Boys and Interpol to get me over a 20K’ pass in Nepal years ago.
