AC/DC, Guns N’ Roses, and Metallica are among some of the greatest bands of our time. If you don’t get the chills when watching Mariano “Mo” Rivera run in from the bullpen, Bob Shepard’s voice in the background, and “Enter Sandman” by Metallica blasting throughout Yankee Stadium, you’re not a sports fan.
Some of the younger players are more into Dub Step and techno music. Just take a look at Brett Lawrie’s walk-up song “Somehow” by Dash Berlin & 3LAU ft. Bright Lights.
Of course, there are the classic ballplayers that enjoy a little Johnny Cash like Andrew Miller of the New York Yankees. There’s also the highly energetic Hispanic music for guys like Adrian Gonzalez of the Los Angeles Dodgers. And let’s not forget the country boys, such as Billy Butler of the Oakland Athletics, who gets hyped to Jason Aldean.
Lets be real—even us fans get a little hyped when we hear the bass in the background and music blasting. As much as we love singing Take Me Out to the Ballgame, this is the 21st century, dangit, and as Meghan Trainor would put it, we are “all about that bass!”
So, who on the San Francisco Giants has the coolest and most exhilarating walk-up song this year? Which Giant gets you the most hyped and out of your mind when PA Renel Brooks-Moon announces who is batting?
You’re not going to believe who took the number one spot!
