Wheezing to Weezer with Lance Armstrong
Jogging before there were iPods is like stalking before there was Google—how was it possible? Capitalizing on this aural fixation is Nike, who’ve commissioned some top athletes to coach runners while listening to custom-made playlists. Serena Williams’s mix boasts beat-thick tracks by Timbaland and Black Eyed Peas, while Lance Armstrong’s favors riffs over raps with tracks by Weezer and Queens of the Stone Age, among others. The Nike Sport Music collection can be purchased on their website or on iTunes. We just have a quick question for Nike and Interscope, who chose “Loser” by Beck for Armstrong’s mix: Really? We guess there’s no better motivation than a good ol’ fashion put-down.
