UPDATED: Name That Tune…Brewers Edition

Back in April, to start the season, I wrote a post about players’ at-bat/entrance songs.

Due to popular demand, I’m updating the list of 2012 music for the second half of the season, with a special thanks to Cory Wilson and Matt Morell in our Scoreboard Operations Department.

See below!

Norichika Aoki: “Right Round” by Flo Rida

2012 PITCHING ENTRANCE MUSIC

Yovani Gallardo: “My Time” by Fabolous

Kameron Loe: “Of Wolf and Man” by Metallica

Francisco Rodriguez: “Sandungueso” by Tego Calderon

Mark Rogers: “Lights Out” by P.O.D.

In case you weren’t aware, we do keep a list of these songs on brewers.com and try our best to update it accordingly, so you might want to bookmark this page for future reference.

Also, if you recall, I also took most of these songs and turned then into a personal playlist on Spotify. I’m going to try to keep it updated during the season, so join me in listening if you’re like!

Finally, Some people have been asking about the song played after the Brewers hit home runs at Miller Park.  Here’s your answer: “Cherry Lips” by Garbage is the most regular one played, but we also play is “Slam” by Onyx. Also, the song played after Brewers victories is currently “All I Do is Win” by DJ Khaled.

So now, what about you? What’s your favorite, or most memorable Brewers at-bat song? And, if you were a player, what song might you choose as yours?

I can’t listen to the song “Your Love” by The Outfield and not think of Mark Kotsay.

Hmm.. I can swear that I’ve heard “No church in the wild” by Jay-Z and Kanye West several times before Carlos Gomez at-bats?

These are just the songs as of 8/21/12. Some guys switch ‘em up quite often! I’m trying to stay current. -C

Okay, that sounds about right :)
If I were a player (I think I’d be the first Norwegian player in baseball history) I think I would have had “Centerfield” by John Fogerty as a at-bat song. Great baseball song!

Frank Catalanotto using The Outfield’s “Your Love” as his walk-up music. Seemed like a stadium wide pick-up line at the time.

Always remember the fans getting energized when the intro to Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer” blasted every time Dave Parker walked to the plate in 1990.

but before Kotsay, “Your Love” was made popular by Frank Catalanotto

You left out the most important one, Electric Worry, by Clutch…”Bang, Bang, Bang, Bang”

If i was a major league ball player mine would be Fight Inside by Red as well… Luc got me caught on Red and Five Finger Death Punch(:

I miss when Corey Hart had “Flower” by Moby as his walk up song.

I think the best was “Hell’s Bells” when Trevor Hoffman came out to pitch. Wish we had him back!

2 perfect songs when the Brewers get a walk…” WALK” by Pantera and “Walk it Out” by Dj Unk

I love the John Fogerty “Centerfield” idea; but since it’s already been picked, I’m gonna have to choose “Hey Man, Nice Shot” by Filter or “Cowboys from Hell” Pantera style – depends on my mood LOL

The intro to I Stand Alone by Godsmack would rock as an intro song.

I have always wondered if the players make these choices or if some media type makes the selection. Favorite all time players tunes – All around the watchtower for Craig Counsel and Hells Bells for Trevor Hoffman. If I had a choice it would be Bad to the Bone by George Thoroughgood.

Hell’s Bells when Trev0r h0ffman came in. Fit it perfectly!
