Brian McCann's Career Intro Songs

I was listening to Pandora today at work, and "Party Like A Rock Star" came on (...I...don't know...), and I don't think I've heard that song since Baby used it as an intro! It made me wish I'd been keeping track of his intro songs, so I'd love your help in trying to put together a list. If you remember one, please post it in the comments (with the year, if you can)! :)

2 Step, DJ UNK
Amarillo Sky, Jason Aldean
Amazing, Kanye West
All I Do Is Win, DJ Khaled
All the Above, Maino ft. T-Pain
Boom Boom Pow, Black Eyed Peas
The Boss, Rick Ross
Forever, Drake
Party Like a Rock Star, Shop Boyz
Put On, Young Jeezy
Simple Man, Shinedown
Temperature, Sean Paul
Use Somebody, Kings of Leon
Walk It Out, DJ UNK

"Party Like A Rockstar" is by Shop Boyz and I know he used "2 Step" by DJ UNK in 2007 for a while. Also, last year he had "Put On" by Young Jeezy & Kanye West after using "The Boss".

Didn't he use "Amarillo Sky" by Jason Aldean for a little while at the beginning of last year? I think it was when Frenchy used "Watching Airplanes".

Oh yeah, good job Leah! I loved when he had "Put On" as his song. It fit nicely :)

Leah said...

Thanks. I think the only song that I haven't liked that he's used, that I can remember, is Kanye West's "Amazing" (one of his current songs). Maybe it's just because I haven't really heard the whole song, though.

Thanks for the additions, Leah. I had 2 Step and Put On on my mental list, but forgot to finish filling out the post before running to a meeting and hitting "Publish" before I left -- clearly, since I forgot to put the artist next to Party Like a Rock Star!

He def. had a Amarillo Sky last season when Jeff had Watching Airplanes...The song only lasted a few games.

Glad I could help, Lauren.

Kanye's "Amazing" doesn't really seem like a good intro song because of the tone of it, but the lyrics are really good throughout the song, especially the part Mac has sampled. I've never cared for Kanye but I do like this one.

"Put On" will forever be my favorite intro song...heck, favorite song in general.

He's had that many different songs? The things I miss by watching on TV.

David, the only part that gets me about "Put On" is the lyric (in the remix, not sampled in Baby's song) is the part that says...

I put on for my city so
When I'm dead and gone
I got one last wish
Put my Yankee hat on
[chorus]

Considering his Mom's family is from NY, and considering his success in his first four years, I could definitely see him in pinstripes one of these days. (2014, but still...) *sigh*

FL, these are the songs he's used over his career, not just this year. :)

That notion makes me feel rather sick.

David Lee said...

That's true, Lauren. I never realized that. But that's a Jay-Z line, not Jeezy. If you just consider the original version, Jeezy is from the ATL so you could look at it that way haha.

Lauren T. said...

Very true. I'm just not holding my breath for Mac to be a lifer... it's so rare these days.

Leah said...

I believe Mac's changed his intro song yet again. My friend says it's Kings of Leon - Use Somebody. I think he might have changed it to try to change his luck at the plate. Poor guy. :(

Lauren T. said...

I've had about 8 people let me know of the change, but I haven't had much time for updating old posts lately. Maybe if I change it right this minute when I have some time, people will stop sending it to me. ;)
