This is a topic to debate which team has the best theme song.

I think the two best are easily:

"A New Pirate Generation"

and

"D'backs Swing"

What do you think?

Teams have songs?

And people know about them?

All I know is I can't stand that Steve Goodman song they play after the Cubs win.  And I grew up a Cubs fan.  And a Steve Goodman fan.

I only know the Tigers song "Go Get 'Em Tigers" but it sounds like it's from the 1930s.

So I'll let you guys enjoy "Gettin' Miggy Wit It."

Wow, you might be right. I almost climaxed during that key change.

Let's play ball it's game daaaayyyy.  We want strikeouts, base hits, dobble plays.

Jim Rome can be irritating at times, but this was a pretty good bit involving that song.

Yeah, Rome can be a DB, but there were some funny points in there.

"Where's Stapp's recording studio, right at home plate?  That's a ball being hit on the screws.  That's Teddy Ballgame.  That's Albert Pujols hitting one 700 feet."

I do not know any team's theme song. I'm a Red Sox fan and I can think of 4-5 songs that might be it.

Never heard that before.  Sounds like some Texas C & W band, lol.  Love the slide show showing Sox errors, sadness and ineptness.  Funny.

I never knew teams had official songs though everyone here in NE knows "Tessie" (Dropkick Murphys) that they play at the ballpark on occasion and "Sweet Caroline" but those are songs they play ... not rah rah songs.  Well at least "Tessie" is about the early Red Sox but it's hard to understand the lyrics and the early 1900's references if you are just a casual fan.  Sorry, don't have a link to it.

But baseball on the whole just doesn't seem suited to real rah rah songs along the lines of the Redskins one in football.  It's more about painting the picture of a team's lineage and fans' emotional connection to that than victory marches I think.

Haha, yeah it's a terrible song, but it goes so well with the slide show.  I'm a Padres' fan, so it would have to be something fairly dark to represent our depressing existence.  Maybe "Fell on Black Days" by Soundgarden.  Or "Down In a Hole" by Alice In Chains.  Definitely grunge era, depressing s**t.
