10 Best Pump Up Songs Ever For Football
The 10 best pump up songs ever for football tend to fall into two categories, hard rock and hip hop. No doubt the prevailing tastes in any single locker room may sway the pre-game soundtrack. But whatever your preference in music is, these 10 best pump songs ever for football will get your blood pumping and your body ready for some heavy hitting.
- "Thunderstruck" AC/DC has made some great pump up music through the years, but 1990's "Thunderstruck" has just the right steely intensity and banging chorus to get you pumped up for the game, practice or just a good workout.
- "Destroya" The drums and guitars in this My Chemical Romance headbanger will get anyone jacked up for some football. The song is really about a lack of faith in religion, but the title alone tells you it's also about taking out the opposition.
- "Here Comes the Boom" Nelly's song, with its relentless "Here comes the boom!" chorus, was used in the remake of the "The Longest Yard" and surely has a place in football locker rooms everywhere before games.
- "Sabotage" This bass-heavy Beastie Boys classic from 1994 has been used everywhere, from the "Madden 10" video game to the new "Star Trek" movie. Put it on your MP3 player or stereo and crank it before you're ready to go out and do a little damage on the field.
- "Tubthumping" Chumbawamba's biggest hit song has a bit of European football feel to it, but the "I Get Knocked Down, But I Get Up Again" chorus applies to American football and most sports for that matter.
- "Rock and Roll" Led Zeppelin's high-speed, crashing drums ode to rock music can get the juices flowing as well as any song ever recorded. Get the Led out and then let your aggressions out.
- "Stronger" Kanye West lays out simply enough, "That which doesn't kill me makes me stronger." In football and life, those can be words to live by.
- "Tick Tick Boom" If this Hives rocker doesn't get you pumped up to play, you don't have a pulse.
- "Let it Rock." Kevin Rudolf, with some help from Lil' Wayne, put out a song that will stay in your head once the music stops and you're all about hitting and scoring touchdowns. Say it with us three times, "Let it rock, let it rock, let it rock."
- "We Made It" Busta Rhymes with Linkin Park rap and sing about making even with "our backs up against the wall." It may be a cliche, but that "backs against the wall" idea can get most football teams fired up to play at their best.
