Michael Phelps at the 2016 Olympics on Aug. 9, 2016, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

You already know dance music is great for hitting the gym, but what about pumping up before laps? Michael Phelps is the most decorated Olympian of all time, and when he needs a rush of adrenaline before the big mete, he puts a solid heap of bass between his ears.

According to an NBC Facebook live stream, Phelps revealed the tunes he's been rocking before each historic win. His favorite artist is Eminem, but he's also been rockin' Skrillex' remix of Nero's “Promises” and Steve Aoki and Afrojack's “No Beef.” NBC reported that he listened to the later just before Saturday night's 4x100-meter medley relay – which he won, of course.
