Who has the best and worst on the team?

BEST: Paul Konerko: "Harvester of Sorrow" by Metallica

I don't think I can ever get sick of hearing this song. I like how they play the song a second time after PK gets a hit because it just has an amazing opening.

WORST: Gordon Beckham "Your Love" by The Outfield

I have this damn song stuck in my head and it's all Bacon's fault. This is a classic example of why most 80s soft rock is brutal. I don't know why Beckham selected this song. I can easily see why PK chose his, but this just makes no sense. It's almost as bad as playing "All out of Love" (the song they played for Crede as an inside joke when he returned).

Beckham has used the song since college, it's his favorite song.

I don't really care about the walkup music, but I do know if I was a closer, I would play Metallica: The Unforgiven II.

While we're on this topic, what the heck was that country song Josh Fields used to come up to bat to at the beginning of the season?

Boom by POD is perfect for Bobby IMO.

I remember Carl Everett coming out to "Drop it like its hot" a few years ago. That always gave me a good laugh.

I love how it says "-SILENCE-" for TCQ. That's perfect!!! :D:

I'd definitely want my walk-up song to be "Dead Memories" done by Slipknot. That's easily my favorite song right now.

What is JD's new song? I think it is by Lil Wayne but what is the title?

Billy Koch in particular will always be unforgiven in my eyes

Beckham's song is a great choice. It's about time someone have fun with it.


I think Griffey had a good one too though. Soul Glo?

Somebody used to come up to Springsteen I forget who. It was after the Rising and I'm a huge Springsteen fan so I liked that. But I'd come up to Anarchy in the UK. The opening chords of that with Johnny Rotten's scowl of "Right....now!" is perfect.

Everybody would be cheering up until "I am an anti-christ"...

I'd want Hair of the Dog by Nazareth

I recall in '05 that Pods came out to E-Pro by Beck. I always liked that song.

As for me, if I could do it as a closer, I'd run out to Intervention by Arcade Fire just because I think the opening Pipe Organ sounds epic. And the first line of the song, "The King's taking back the throne."

But that's just me. Here come's the BOOM is pretty sweet as well for Bobby.

That wasn't Pods. That was AJ.

At a game I was at last year, for only one at bat, Alexei came up to "Good Vibrations" by Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch.

That was the best at bat music ever.

I remember JD came up to Candy Shop in '05 and Iguchi came up to a song that sounded like the beginning to Honest Mistake by The Bravery, but it wasn't.

I really hope Beckham has an awesome tenure with us so Your Love can become a White Sox anthem.

I haven't gotten "Your Love" out of my head since attending the walk off against the Cubs. Greatest song ever :tongue:
