Whether it’s Mariano Rivera’s iconic “Enter Sandman” entrance, David Ortiz using “Big Poppa” by The Notorious B.I.G., Edwin Diaz using “Narco” by Timmy Trumpet, or even Will Smith using “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Theme Song” by the other Will Smith, there are many great walk-up songs in baseball history. Here at Bleacher Brawls, Caroline ranked the Yankees walk-up songs, while Pat does a yearly ranking of the Red Sox walk-up songs. But nothing is better than having your own personal walk-up song. Here are my top five choices for my own walk-up song.


“New Level” (feat. Future) by A$AP Ferg

In terms of getting hyped up, this might be my favorite option. That’s something that A$AP Ferg does very well through a lot of his songs, and him having the hook of “I’m on a new level” can make it feel almost like you are powering up. This song specifically makes much more sense to use as a hitter, as you really only need the hook of the song. It’s simple, but it’s good, and that’s what makes it work.


“Forever” by Drake, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, and Eminem

Imagine walking up to the plate and the first line heard is “last name ever, first name greatest.” That’s what this song can give you if you start it at Drake’s first verse. If you are the best, and you want to talk about being the best, this is the perfect walk-up song. The only thing with this song is you better be good, because if not you are going to look like an idiot. Also, if you play for the Red Sox in 2024, the second line “like a sprained ankle, boy I ain’t nothin’ to play with” fits perfectly with all the injuries they’ve had.


“Undertaker Theme Song” by WWE and Jim Johnston

I remember Hansel Robles using this coming out of the bullpen in 2021 with the Red Sox, and I agree with him that this is perfect for a reliever. There is just one caveat. You better be a lot better than Hansel Robles. But if you are an elite closer, this is perfect. And if you are also a wrestling fan, this is even more perfect (if that is even possible). I can imagine the lights shutting off and the gong going off, making it a very cinematic entrance from the bullpen.


“Shutdown” by Skepta

As someone who likes the UK rap scene, having “Shutdown” as a walkup song fits nicely. I feel this might be better for a starting pitcher to play while out on the mound before the first inning. It’s a way of saying “I’m going to shut down the other team’s offense.” The best thing about this song is it’s simple. Nothing too over the top. And if you are looking to lock in and dominate, I think this is the perfect song.


“The Nights” by Avicii

You can never go wrong with Avicii, and this right here proves it. “The Nights” is probably the most chill song on my list, but it fits the vibe for someone who might be a little more chilled out themselves. The chorus and the beat that follows would work well for a walk-up song. If it was me, I would only use this for night games considering the name of the song. I feel that this could work as a hitter or a starting pitcher, but might not be the best as a reliever.


These are the five songs I would consider using as my own walk-up songs if I were a MLB player. The best part of a walk-up song is that everyone has something different, and each player has their own type of song that fits them. Now I’m just waiting for a player to make their own song and use it as a walk-up song. That would be amazing.
