depends on the music you like, but when I was in college and needed a little pick me up, I used to love the Tommy Shaw sung Styx songs, Fooling Yourself, Blue Collar Man, Renegade, Too Much Time on My Hands. Triumph was another band that put out great motivational rock songs, Fight the Good Fight, Hold On, Magic Power, Follow Your Heart, Never Surrender, World of Fantasy.

The Descendents - Coolidge

The last couple lines of the song, as simple as they are, are among the most inspirational I've ever heard. And it's a bad-ass song, too.
