2010 Braves Intro Songs

Like last year, let's keep track of the Braves' intro songs (aka walk up / coming up to bat / at-bat / going to pitch songs)! This was a very fun project and one we definitely should keep up this year.

As y'all know, I can usually pick up on the urban music but rock escapes me - I can definitely use your help identifying everyone! If you have an addition or correction to the list, please share the title and artist via comment, Twitter, FB, IM, email, whatever works for you. Thanks! :)

This post links to songs that may not be considered family friendly. I didn't choose these songs; the players did. ;) Use your discretion with kids in the room and your speakers on 11.

Interesting! article on intro songs


Jessica said...

David Ross really used "It Takes Two?" Wow.

CABravesFan said...

I had forgotten that KK uses a song from my favorite band! This bumps him up a notch on my list ;)

Lauren T. said...

Jessica, that's really Rossy's song. I love him more for it. "Woo! Yeah!" hahaha

Amanda said...

I was just asking what Heyward used, should have known to ask you instead!

Mo Rivera has used Enter Sandman forever. I don't remember any Braves using it.

CABravesFan said...

Actually Wags has used "Enter Sandman" his entire career- longer then Rivera has ;)

I cracked up thinking of Rossy walking to the plate to "It Takes Two" and then realized it is so him!

Leah said...

Mac used "Put On" by Young Jeezy again at one point yesterday, I believe.

Most of the batting songs are a blur to me because of all the awesomeness that went on yesterday.

Lauren T. said...

Heyward tweeted his songs, Amanda, that's the only way I knew them! It was too loud!! :D The only ones I could hear clearly were Martin, Nate, and Wags.

Jessica said...

Ha! Wonder if Rossy's trying to show his age by using that song? I love it!

CA - I love Linkin Park, too. Wonder if KK picked it himself?

Leah said...

According to RoyHobbs on, Hinske's song is "Walk" by Pantera.

Thought I'd point that out. :)

Lauren T. said...

Yeah, he also replied here about 5 hours before that. ;) I'll add Hinske's song.

Leah said...

Ha, I didn't see that. My bad.

Jenna said...

Melky just used Pump It by the Black Eyed Peas.

Crista Michelle said...

Heyward gets special points in my book for using a song by Drake. (I've loved Drake since he was Jimmy on Degrassi!)...
... just sayin'

Alison said...

I think that Huddy is now using "Rapper's Delight" by The Sugarhill Gang. And he was so smiley while it was playing! :)

Jamie said...

The version of Simple Man that Brian uses is by Shinedown. Yunie uses Somos de Calle by Daddy Yankee. :)

Super Duper Sarah said...

Tommy Hanson's using "Stranglehold" by Ted Nugent this year!

Lauren T. said...

Thanks, Sarah! I picked up a couple more on Wednesday night with Shazam and will update today. :)

EJ said...

Does anyone know Tim Hudson's new entrance music? It sounds like it is saying "errbody love me, err errbody love me" it is funny he smiles when it comes on.

EJ said...

Saito uses Frontline by Pillar by the way

Lauren T. said...

Thanks EJ!

D.Granger said...

The ones on a list I got from the Braves dated as 4/16 that are different from your list are: Troy Glaus - Over The Mountain by Ozzy Osbourne, Tim Hudson - Killing In The Name Of by Rage Against The Machine, Brooks Conrad - By The Way by Red Hot Chili Peppers and Don't Stay by Linkin Park, Jo Jo Reyes - Down With The Sickness by Disturbed, Jesse Chavez - Joker & The Thief by Wolfmother, Kris Medlen - Live Wire by Motley Crue, and Takashi Saito - You Could Be Mine by Guns N Roses. I've also heard that Brandon Hicks came up to Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix two weeks ago.

Lauren T. said...

We use Shazam on smartphones in the stadium and check the songs online when we're at regular computers again. Thanks for the update on Huddy -- I think his is the only one I don't have current. I'll have someone double-check next time he pitches.

D.Granger said...

No problem. I'll definitely be checking this blog for updates, since a game I own allows you to have 3 songs for each player and other situations for the team.

Lauren T. said...

The list you got "from the Braves" is off a video game? Or from someone in the front office?

D.Granger said...

No, I got it from the front office so it can be used in a game to be accurate.

Lauren T. said...

Could you please email me your source? My email's in the sidebar of the blog. Thanks!

EJ said...

Hey guys I found out today that Tim Hudson is using Teach me how to Dougie by Cali Swag District its only when he comes up to bat

Taylor said...

Does anyone know what Gregor Blanco uses?

Trooper5870 said...

Is there anyway I can figure out what Alex Gonzalez's song is? Since going to the Giants series that song has been stuck in my head and I cannot figure it out to save my life. It would be GREATLY appreciated!

Lauren T. said...

Trooper, I'd love to know! Every game I've been to since he's been a Brave, they don't play the song loud enough for Shazam to pick up. Plus, they announce his name right in the middle, which messes with the matching.

Does anyone recognize it without using a phone program?

aaronhyder09 said...

Does anyone know what song Alex Gonzalez uses?

Lauren T. said...

Aaron, it's something Eminem. See the comment above yours...

Erin said...

the name of heyward's song is Over by Drake

Lauren T. said...

Yep, we have that one on Heyward's list, Erin. :)

a cut above - avery watts

is alex's batter clip

Lauren T. said...

That's totally it -- thanks FractalMountain, you made my day!

Sarah said...

Freddy Freeman's song is "The Show Goes On" by Lupe Fiasco. I went to a Braves game last night and searched for his song this morning and just came across it on iTunes.

Lauren T. said...

Sarah, his 2011 song is Lupe. He used a different song last year (don't know if you meant to comment on the 2010 or 2011 intro song post...).
