Whether or a fan or a player, you need to get your mind right before a football game and the right hype song can do just that. But it can't be just any old song, it has to be loud, it has to have punch, it has to have lyrics that incite emotions of passion, determination, and even a little rage (sorry Celine Dion, you didn't make the list).
You may wonder why I chose 31 songs. The honest answer is that there is no reason. I sat down and just started writing. When I was done, I had 31 songs. It's that simple.
On this list, you'll find a mix of rock, heavy metal, country, and hip-hop. Those are the genres I tend to lean more towards when I'm listening to my iPod (yes, I still use an iPod, don't judge). What they all have in common regardless of genre is that they get the heart racing, the blood and adrenaline pumping, and make anybody listening feel like they can take on the world, or run through a brick wall.
Without any further adieu, in no particular order, I give you my list. My apologies to any walls that may be harmed.
