What's the best starting lineup song in the association? Chicago Bulls "Sirius". I realize it's a homer pick but even non-Bulls fans get hyped from it. I can only really think of two NBA teams off the top of my head that I associate with a particular song. I went to high school in Michigan and I felt like every single team we played in basketball either came out to "Final Countdown" or "Lose Yourself" by Eminem. It's a Bulls tradition.

By illwauk , February 4, in Sports In General. Yesterday, the 49ers coming out to "California Love" sparked a lively conversation at our party about the music teams' use to pump themselves up at the start of the game and figured it'd be cool to hear the thoughts of the CCSLC. Anyway, I thought California Love was an inappropriate song for the Niners. The Packers, for all their history, really ought to still be using a live band Bring back the Limberjacks! Despite what I feel about the organization as a Packers fan, I must say I'm envious of what the Vikings come out to. I'm not the biggest Zeppelin fan, but they couldn't have chosen anything more appropriate than a song about actual Vikings "Immingrant Song". In their early years the Ducks had a song called "Rock the Pond". However, I heard on a TV broadcast earlier this season they are attempting to switch that up this year. None of the other teams I follow have entrance songs that have really stuck.

Nearly two minutes long, it segues into " Eye in the Sky " on the original recording. From the s onward, "Sirius" has become a staple of many college and professional sporting arenas throughout North America. On the album, "Sirius" segues into "Eye in the Sky". The former is usually followed by the latter on airplay, though not always in live performances — at the World Liberty Concert Sirius was played as the introduction to "Breakaway" from the Alan Parsons solo album Try Anything Once , with Candy Dulfer on saxophone. The genesis of "Sirius" began when Alan Parsons wanted the first song on the album to be "Eye in the Sky", but felt there needed to be an introduction leading up to it. As he was working on ideas at home on his Fairlight CMI , he wrote a riff that he liked, which ultimately became "Sirius". The song was chosen by public address announcer Tommy Edwards in the early s, although Parsons's version was last used in the Bulls have used cover versions from local musicians since the season when it was designed as a segue from a pre-game video. Since the season , "Sirius" has played before the Nebraska Cornhuskers ' home football games as part of the pre-game tunnel walk. It is also used by the World of Outlaws before the cars do the four-wide salute during parade laps before the A Main feature.
The energetic strains of "Real American" that signified the immortal Hulk Hogan was on his way. As much as the wrestling superstars themselves entertained us, their entrance music was what got adrenaline pumping and sent waves of excitement through the crowd. The use of entrance music could accentuate the NBA's most unique personalities and further build the anticipation of a fan favorite or hated villain checking into the game. Granted, the likelihood of the NBA adopting this seems to be a long shot, but it's still a fun exercise in thought pairing the most unique NBA players with the perfect anthem that tells their story. To kick things off, I've actually chosen a wrestling theme song for LeBron James.
