2011 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.

What would your intro song be?


Lauren T. said...

I always said mine would be Survivor's Eye of the Tiger (LOVE, in a tongue-in-cheek way), but I could also groove out to part of the chorus of Drake's "Up All Night"...

I be up all night
Whole crews in here
Cause I don't really know who I'mma lose this year (oooh)
Man I love my team. Man I love my team
I would die for these [bad n-word]...

OK, it's not a traditional intro song, but it's pretty good for baseball, yes? If any of you hear anyone in MLB using it, let me know, ok?

CABravesFan said...

Do I have to pick just one entrance song?

In no particular order I would probably choose one of these:

Would (Alice in Chains)
Back Against the Wall (Cage the Elephant)
Pride (Manchaster Orchestra)
Crawl Back In (Dead By Sunrise)
One Stp Closer, Faint, or pretty much anything else by Linkin Park

(obviously, I lean toward the hard rock songs ;) )

Crista Michelle said...

I would switch between....
Big City Dreams by NeverShoutNever!
Real With Me by Cady Groves
Fly by Cady Groves
You are a Storm by Jonny Diaz (<3)
Summer Rain by Matthew Morrison
Firework by Katy Perry
Rainbow Veins by Owl City
Save Me, San Francisco by Train

and maybe
Dynamite by Taio Cruz
and Like a G6 by Far East Music

My favorite song changes daily :P

D.Granger, some on that list are correct, some are old (from last season), and some were not being used on 3/29 and 3/30. I'll see what's being used in the upcoming games and update accordingly.

For example, Chipper was using "Let's Go" again, not "Crazy Train". Jason Heyward just tweeted his five walkout songs for the beginning of the year tonight, and the one on your list is not on his list of five songs. I trust Mr. Heyward to know what his songs are. ;) Nate McLouth uses four songs. Beachy was not using GWTF, EO was not using Electric Feel (although I LOVE that song and that remix and I wish he would!), and "Go Low" - the one listed for DLowe - isn't even a song. (It's "How Low".)

Not yelling at you... just saying, I trust my ears in the stadium more than an email from who knows where... :)

D.Granger said...

I hear ya. Just went with what I was given. Lookin' forward to you updating your list. Wish there was an easier way to know when you've updated it.

Lauren T. said...

I tweet every time I update it. :) It's not a big deal. It's just for fun, like everything else here.

D.Granger said...

I guess I'll have to check that out. On a forum I frequent people will be posting what songs they hear and one of them was "Hey Baby" by Pitbull for Gonzo, if you'd like to add it to the list.

Lauren T. said...

Alison asked Beachy on Saturday what his intro songs are - he said he did not choose QotSA last year and told us what his current songs are, but I don't remember them. Maybe she can help?

Robin said...

The last time I went to a Braves game in which Kimbrell pitched, they played "welcome to the jungle" by guns 'n' roses.

GIBBS said...

Thank you!

(Last night Linebrink used Good Ole Boys. Kimbrel also changed his to Welcome to the Jungle)

atlbraves21 said...

Schaffer had a different song against the Mets. Anyone know what it was by chance?

ENP said...

random comment for late in the season...
Now that Matt Young's gone back to Gwinnett, his at-bat song the other night was Skee-lo's "I wish" which I thought was too perfect & funny.

I wish I were a little bit taller,
I wish I were a baller,
I wish I had a girl who looked good, I would call her...

Lauren T. said...

That's pretty hilarious. :D Was just talking about Matt Young with a friend a few minutes ago - hope he's doing well.

Ben said...

Michael Bourn walks up to 'I Luv It' by Jeezy

Lauren T. said...

Thanks so much, Ben! As soon as I heard it I recognized it, but I was having a hard time picking it up with Shazam at the stadium.
