Batter up! San Francisco Giants, Detroit Tigers walk-up music

< Previous Page

Song: "Me Myself and I," De La Soul

Was Buster even born when this song came out? It’s an oldie, a No. 1 R&B hit from the hip-hop band in 1989, but it’s certainly a goody. We wish more batters would go old-school with their walk-ups.

5. Hunter Pence (No. 8, RF)

Song: "A Warrior’s Call," Volbeat; "Breakn’ a Sweat," Skrillex

This Hunter splits his time between heavy metal (Volbeat) and EDM (Skrillex) — and both are appropriately energized walk-up tunes. Plus, we like what the titles say about Pence — certainly a warrior who’s not afraid to break a sweat.

6. Brandon Belt (No. 9, 1B)

Song: N/A?

Maybe he prefers to listen to the crowd?

7. Gregor Blanco (No. 7, RF)

Song: "Welcome to Jamrock" — Damian Marley

One of the best reggae rockers to come along in many a moon, this cut from Bob Marley’s son — Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley — is a rollicking choice for the walk-up.

8. Brandon Crawford (No. 35, SS)

Song: "Writer’s Block," Royce da 5’9

On principle, we are against anything that uses the term "Writer’s Block" — which puts the Fear of Editor into every journalist. Plus, this song features Eminem, a proud Detroit guy. So, maybe, Crawford should get a new walk-up song for this series.
