The Rockies Make a Grand Entrance

Categories: Music News


As promised in this week's Beatdown, the following is a breakdown of entrance music for many of your favorite Rockies players. The songs are reportedly chosen by the players themselves, and while some of the selections make total sense (Todd Helton and Josh Fogg's picks are no-brainers), others are a little more inexplicable (Kazuo Matsui and Ryan Spilborghs's choices, for instance). Also below, you'll find links to a few fan-penned Rockies' songs, including two from Matt Fecher, the man behind South Park Music Fest and Monolith. If there's any others you know about, feel free to send 'em our way.

Tribute Songs:

"Rockies Baseball"
An extremely short punk rock ditty paying homage to the National League champs.

Check out "Rockies Remix," which is built around a White Stripes sample and credited to Matt Fecher's fabled combo Hot to Death, and "Rockies World Series," Fecher's first effort in which he raps: "With each home run, the Series will be won/So put your bat into it, 'cause you know just how to do it." Find both songs here.

Finally, the last one comes courtesy of Tyler Ward, a UNC student who clearly has a bunch of free time on his hands. Ward re-working of Soulja Boy's "Crank That" is probably the best of the bunch. Find it here.
