There is no better way to pump a crowd up at a game then by playing the right song. Sometimes its mainstream pop, sometimes its hair metal jams, but no matter what, it does the trick. On this Championship Sunday, lets take a look at some of the best stadium songs in sports.
Welcome to the Jungle– Whether you’re at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati or the Staples Center in L.A., when this Guns N’ Roses classic comes on the fans go wild. Nothing strikes the fear of god into an opposing team than hearing Slash’s solo towards the end of the song. An absolutely epic intro fit for the most hostile of environments.
Jump Around– When you’re in the fourth inning, with no score and nothing particularly happening, the House of Pain party classic will wake the crowd up. With a perfect mix of west coast funk and Boston flair, you’ll almost have to raise your hands when the track starts.
Sweet Caroline– Now I know it sounds weak, but there is nothing like being at Fenway Park when the Neil Diamond classic comes on. The electricity that fills the park and you can just feel the warmth of all the fans joining in song together. A true treat for any baseball fan.
Hells Bells– When the lights go out, and the bells start ringing, this AC/DC gem wil send chills down your spine. It sends fear through the opposition, knowing that the other guys are on their way.
Enter Sandman– Made famous by the great Mariano Rivera, the Metallica classic would both electrify and terrify Yankee Stadium night in and night out. The song has gone on to take a new life in college. The Iowa Hawkeyes, Wisconsin Badgers, and Virginia Tech Hokies have all made the song their entrance song.
These are only some of the countless songs that get the crowds roaring. Which is your favorite? Lets us know in the comments!
