For anyone that was able to go to any of our home games so far -

What are they playing for Thome when he comes up to bat?

Is it something sinister like PK's "Harvester of Sorrow" or is it something more lighthearted?

Obviously this guy brings it - so he should have an appropriate intro. jus curious what they are playing for him. I cant buy any ticket packages because of my work schedule - I have to go when I can, so I've missed out on this kind of thing so far. I wanted to go to opening day, but I could not bring myself to spend more for opening day than I did for game #2 of the WS.

Oh well - anyway Im putting a CD together and Thome's intro is a mystery to me at this point. Any help would nbe appreciated. :)

:D:

They played 'You Shook Me All Night Long' a few times and Rob Zombie's version of 'Blitzkrieg Bop' (from the 'We're a Happy Family' Ramones Tribute cd) a few times. There may have been others, but I noticed those two.

I'd like to suggest the Green Acres Theme Song... Or maybe Dueling Banjos!

hmm - it doesnt sound like its really established yet. he needs something cool - like konerko's intro.

I think it should be the theme from Dukes of Hazzard.

"Big Bad John" by Jimmy Dean. Just change "John" to "Jim".

It's certainly Mudvayne..they are from Peoria too. I believe it was "Forget to Remember" off of Lost and Found. Cool to see Mackowiak coming out to Disturbed (Oak Lawn).

Well its sort of Disturbed. Its "Land of Confusion" which is a remake, but either way its the Disturbed version. What does brian anderson come out to? I know its some metal song and they cut it off right as the guy starts to scream in the song

Or that Jim Croce song that goes you don't mess around with Jim.

Mackowiak has also come out to "Who says you cant go home" by bon jovi

I know that Jenks has claim to this song, but "BOOM" by P.O.D. would be very fitting for Thome since he CRUSHES balls into the stands.

No, that's a different song by the same guy, that one's Bad, Bad Leroy Brown.

In the other song, in some verses he says and you don't mess around with Slim. So it can be Garland's song as well. :D:

actually, I think bret boone has claim to that song...that is, if he ever plays again. i'm sure he'll be with rickey henderson on the newark bears this year.

Elevation.

He came out to the same track while he was in Milwaukee.

Thanks, story of the year huh?? Maybe there not as bad as I thought, I think the way mtv and the radio promotes them turned me off but now I think I will listen to the album to see what song it is.

I think the song from story of the year is called: Is this my fate? (Appropriate for BA,huh). I believe he also uses a song from a band called Fallout boy?? I will try to pay attention on Friday when I go.

*** is with these terrible songs? A.J's are just ridiculous, but then again, who cares. I'd want some type of drum beat that gets progressively faster, but that's just me.

Just taking a guess here, but it probably is AJ Styles entrance music. He wrestles for TNA wrestling.

while that may be a great song for thome, paulie already comes out to "harvester of sorrow", that's a lot of metallica. i'm sure most people heard about the uproar when billy wagner came out to "enter sandman" and it rubbing the yankme nation the wrong way.



OOPS.

Ummmm. Hmmmm. Errr. Dunno.

How about "I like it, I love it" by Tim McGraw? I know I'd love some more of Thome cracking the ball into low-Earth orbit.

That guitar riff would sound great cranked on the cell's sound system.

How about this song from the "Rock Star" soundtrack - the band "Steel Dragon" is fictitious, but the song sounds awesome for an intro. Its called "Blood Pollution".

has a great buildup. I love this 80's metal type stuff. :)

You can hear it here:
