What would your intro music be?

Ryan Cook really needs some better intro music. Kelly Clarkson... really? Mandatory Credit: Kelley L Cox-US PRESSWIRE

I haven't had much time to watch the A's this year, because of my job and some other personal ventures. Is that Willingham guy still there? No? You mean Scott Sizemore has been carrying the offense? Hopefully he's providing enough run support for Gi.. oh...

Instead of another post about why I hate the Athletics' current opponents (and with the Yankees, there's a lot of hate to go around), I thought I'd ask you a question.

If you were a Major League batter or pitcher, what would your intro music be?

I got the idea from a NY Times blog, actually.

Personally, if I'm a hitter, I'd go with Tupac's All Eyez on Me (clean link). Closer? Jay-Z's U Don't Know (some explicit lyrics). Starting pitcher? Garth Brooks' Ain't Goin' Down (Til The Sun Comes Up). Yeah, I'm weird like that.

What would you pick? I found a list (not sure how accurate it is, though) of the A's players' choices. I'll post it after the jump.

The Athletics send Bartolo Colon to the hill to face CC Sabathia of the Yankees. 1:05 p.m. start.
