The Milwaukee Brewers updated their walk-up songs for the current homestand. We’ve got thoughts on the best…and not so best of the latest tunes the Brew Crew will use to get hyped for their next at-bat.
Songs are ranked according to player fit, overall awesomeness, how good the band is (or was) and whether or not any of our staff would actually dance to it.
10. Chase Anderson – “The Way I Talk” – Morgan Wallen
The only country song on list. It isn’t the best song on the list, but it does represent Chase Anderson and his Wichita Falls, Texas roots very well.
9. Jesus Aguilar – “Que Hablen, Que Digan” – Farruko ft. Sixto Rein
Listen to this song and try not to bob your head. Jesus Aguilar doesn’t get very many plate appearances for the Brewers, but he makes them count with this song.
8. Keon Broxton – “Switchin’ Lanes” – T.I.
Keon Broxton actually likes to switch between T.I. and “What the Price” by Migos. We’re big Migos fans, but Switchin’ Lanes is the better walk-up song.
7. Jimmy Nelson – “Down” – Marian Hill
At first, we thought Nelson lost a bet and had to make this his walk-up song, but after listening, it actually works. The beat is solid, and quick enough to get the blood flowing. Secretly a quality walk-up tune.
6. Ryan Braun – “Glow” Drake ft. Kanye West
No, we didn’t forget to link the song above. We can’t actually find an actual copy on YouTube. Popular artists, quality song, clearly a veteran move by Ryan Braun to choose music that people like as his walk-up song.
5. Zach Davies – “It’s Tricky” – Run DMC
We’re not sure if Zach Davies likes the song, or if the title represents how he feels about swinging a bat. Either way, it’s an excellent choice.
4. Wily Peralta – ““Me Compre Un Panamera” – Bad Bunny
What’s with pitchers having fantastic walk-up music? Solid beat, represents
well, and got at least one of us moving.
3. Orlando Arcia – “El Amante” – Nicky Jam
It’s a bad sign that
walk-up song is more memorable than any of his at bats. Cool beat, smooth lyrics, quality song. If only the results of the hitter matched the song.
2. Hernan Perez – “Escápate Conmigo” – Wisin
Lively and versatile, this is an excellent choice for Milwaukee Brewers utility man Hernan Perez. Works as a walk-up song and represents the player very well.
1. Eric Thames – “Holy Diver” – Killswitch Engage
Power hitters need metal tunes. It’s an unwritten rule. Fantastic riff, let’s you know a slugger is coming to the plate, and gets us into the mood to see Eric Thames hit baseballs really, really far.
The Milwaukee Brewers are already undefeated (2-0!) with their new tunes. Will the luck brought on by the latest songs continue through the current homestand? The Brewers don’t need luck. They have Eric Thames.
