The songs that play during NFL football games always get me energized until my favorite team loses and I have to sit down and mourn. When we dive into stadium music, there are those labeled as “the classics” and there are the modern ones from artists such as Black Eyed Peas and Eminem. NFL teams often mix their playlists, combining both the classics and the current energy filled singles. There are also teams that have particular theme songs both official and non-official music.
ESPN has compiled a wonderful collection of stadium songs. Their list comprises:
• Fat Boy Slim – Because We Can
• The Ramones – Blitzkrieg Bop
• Moby – Bodyrock
• The Gap Band – You Dropped a Bomb on Me

That’s a great list, but there are some classics that are missing. Are we forgetting these? They are great songs played in NFL football games.
