All About At-Bat Songs...

I was thinking about this the other day when I was at the Friday game against the Red Sox. During the game, it seemed like everyone had at-bat music. Baseball is a quirky game; there are players who, if they don't get a hit, have the PA announcer play a different song the next at-bat (I did this in high school, actually).

When I was at the game last Wednesday (day game), I could only remember a handful of guys who even had at-bat music. I guess we were trying to make our organization seem legitimate for all the Sox fans there.

Let's break it down.

If you know any of the ones I don't know the names to, please fill in.

Going by the recent lineup:

Jack Hannahan: AC/DC "Thunderstruck". This seems perfect.

Bobby Crosby: nothing

Jack Cust: Kanye West "Can't Tell Me Nothing". Cool choice.

Frank Thomas: Couldn't really make it out because he's the only guy people cheer for, sadly.

Ryan Sweeney: I don't know the name of this song, it's got a pretty good beat though. Kinda sounds like "Fireman" by Lil' Wayne, but it isn't.

Mark Ellis: nothing

Emil Brown: some absolutely bizarre song that I have no idea of...sounds like a fiddle or something.

Daric Barton: Atreyu "Becoming The Bull". Cool song, but it's funny because they play the part where they sing "back and forth, the struggle consumes us..." and that seems ironic to me. Wonder why.

Kurt Suzuki: nothing, but they played a Hawaiian band once before IIRC.

 

To make this even more fun...what songs would YOU use? I used "Intergalactic" by Beastie Boys and the intro to "Somebody Told Me" by The Killers in high school. We weren't allowed to have music in high school, but at the college I'm at now, we get it. Still deciding. If you have any suggestions...

Go A's.
