Intro music for closers/blowers

The eighth inning ends, people are rushing back to their seats.  A bell begins to ring.  The Padres have a tight lead.  The kind of lead that requires a hero.  A man's man. A real man's man.  Someone that can stare into the belly of the beast and throw a change-up.  Everyone's adrenaline is pumping.  Out from the center field wall, hell has unleashed thy fury of 1,000 hellish bells.  Baseball's very own Fabio rides his imaginary steed toward 3 unfortunate batters that will soon fall victim to baseball's eternal Hoff-induced riddle; be thy a fastball or be thy a change-up....or be thy one in the same?1k, 1 bell.  2k's, 2 bells.  3k's, fireworks and celebration.  We're saved!  The Hoff has done it again.  His iconic theme song amplified our souls as we fought for one divine cause.  We won.

That may have been the dumbest thing I've ever written (at least recognize the sarcasm).  But it's kind of true.  People have fallen in love with closer's intro music.  Hells Bells and Enter Sandman (Mariano Rivera) have made an intro song a staple for closers.  I play baseball, I know some of you have, still do, or at least have imagined what it's like.  I always wonder what it would be like to enter to a song.  

 

Here are my top three songs...

 

  1. The Imperial March from StarWars
  2. Testify by Rage Against the Machine
  3. Tourette's by Nirvana

    I can't stand Blow Me Away (Heath Bell) and I know a lot of you feel the same way.  I've seen enough spotty conversations about who would play what.  Well make it official.  Top 3.  Ready? Go.
