October is a magical month for sports fans where all four major American sports leagues are active. The NBA and NHL have begun new seasons. The NFL is well underway, and the MLB Postseason is in full swing. The temperatures might be dipping, but the intensity is rising for many teams. And with the World Series kicking off, it got me thinking about walk up music. The best sports anthems.
The songs that make the hairs on your arm stand up. The songs that bring you chills when played at a high volume. Ones that the fans continue to sing even after the PA stops playing it. And how about that chant that so many college football fans do every Saturday. Yeah, that one. Ready for some hockey? That song made it too. Did you even know the name of it?
With arenas and stadiums packed with fans, this got us thinking about all of those incredible sports anthems that provide the much-needed soundtrack during any given game. From rock to hip hop to EDM to pop, here are the 25 best sports anthems, ranked. And if we somehow left your fav off the list, let us know. A side note, doing this article gave me a reason to play these songs loudly at my desk at work. On a Friday. What? I’m working!
