Top 10 Best Pre-Game Songs

This is the best guide to pre-game sports music.

Cam Newtown Beats by Dre

As someone who loves sports and playing them, I get why the music you listen to can have a big impact on performance. In all major sports, music is a great way to get you pumped up and ready to play.

 Some players prefer different genres like EDM while others like rock or rap songs. For example, One baseball player enjoys "Walking With Lions" by Codeko ft. RAPHAELLA, and one football player likes "Drops of Jupiter"  by Train

Totally opposite songs and still both have big impacts on the players' performances. Pre-game music can inspire athletes to reach their goals in the game and motivate them to work hard every time their on the court, field, ice, etc. 

Athletes use beats to get their bodies and minds going. The right music will give you an adrenaline rush that helps them get their game on the right way. 

This rush will give energy to the players and make them determined to play their best. Whether it's a fight song, a swagger song, or an inspirational tune, the vibes all help the athletes get ready to play. 

Here is a list of the top 10 best songs to listen to before a game.

"Remember The Name" by Fort Minor

10 percent luck, 20 percent skill, 15 percent concentrated power of will... 

If you haven't heard this sports jam before, you're missing out! 5 percent pleasure, 50 percent pain and 100 percent reason to remember the name... Swag!

"Lose Yourself" by Eminem

This song was made famous in 8 Mile but continues to be played in sports venues and on radio stations to this day. This is up there as the best song to listen to while working out too...
