can you let me now what you think are the best warm up songs in hockey
I take it you mean personal preference?
Last season I used to listen to "Devotion and Desire" by Bayside before I went and played.
I'm a fan of "Black Betty" by Ramjam as well. They play it all the time during hockey games.
I always play "If You Want Blood (You Got It)" by AC/DC driving to my games. I'm not a badass but it gets me pumped to skate hard and fight for the puck.
I always listen to Daddy Yankee.
old Metallica songs get me going
Bodies by the Drowning Pool
start of warmups as everybody's first taking the ice and goalies are "diggin' in", here are a few of my favs (of course you have to get the arena guys to play them, and obviously you have to find the clean version of most of these for them to even consider it):
Cowboys from Hell - Pantera
The Thing that should not Be - Metallica
Fight Fire w/Fire - Metallica
Sickness - Disturbed
Bodies - Drowning Pool
When Worlds Collide - Powerman 5000
Before I forget - Slipknot
Beautiful People - Marilyn Manson
some are old school tunes, but classics & motivators. most of these songs build up from a quiet start then get hard core.
You're The Best (AROUND) - from The Karate Kid soundtrack
Gonna Fly Now - from Rocky
Training Montage - from Rocky IV
Do It in a Montage - from Team America
Higher and Higher - from Wet Hot American Summer
Eye of the Tiger - Survivor
I have two diffrent moods: beats and guitars.
If I want beats -
Electronaut - VNV Nation
Happiness (Re:Boot Remix) - Front 242
Swamp Thing - Juno Reactor
Joy - Cubanate
Confusion (Pump Panel Reconstruction Mix) - New Order
Epicentre - VNV Nation
If I want Guitar -
Soylent Green - Wumpscut
A Drug Against War - KMFDM
Buck Dich - Rammstein
Dragula/Living Dead Girl - Rob Zombie
Hang him Higher - Wumpscut
Du Hast - Rammstein
Or I'll just mix them all together.
Fat Lip by Sum 41, always pumps me up for some reason. Ever since I heard it on the NHL 2002 Soundtrack (I believe) i've been into it when playing hockey.
Strike it up - Black Box
Hydrovibe - Killer Inside, makes me wanna murder people!
And pretty much the entire SAW 3 soundtrack.
Iggy Pop and the Stooges - Search and Destroy.
swim - in flames
southpaw - smoke or fire
follow the reaper- children of bodom
copper and stars - planes mistaken for stars
convalescence- darkest hour
god deciding- hot water music
cannons and tanks - small brown bike
those two right now are my personal favs. but my all time favorite song to get jacked up before a game is thunderstruck AC/DC. nothin got me more ready for a game then the intro to that song.
my original list is my favs for taking the ice pre-game - specifically because most of them (but especially; Cowboys, Bodies, & Worlds Collide) lyrically have that "I'm BillyBadAss & I'm gonna kick your @ss"-message [if you haven't heard any of these - seek them out & when you're listening picture first taking the ice skating around & then taking warm-up shots on your goalie. You'll be sold]. Personally I dig it, but when I play 'em for PeeWee/Bantam age games you can see the kids' chests inflate, their demeanor gets pissy, and their mental focus gets T-U-F!
But, if we're talking individually driving to the rink or listening to the mp3 while suiting up, taping sticks etc. - I've got a lot more I like to "get in the mood" with:
Rage Against the Machine
All these bands have some great stuff - just not really acceptable by the masses, and not always good for that last minute "pump you up" feel
I don't mind (and sometimes do) listen to rap, hip-hop, or techno type stuff - but the problem I have with that is it puts me in more of a fun-party/get-busy-with-my-girl mood rather than a time to kick some @ss mood.
Redman-Time 4 Sum Aksion
N 2 Deep-Back to the Hotel
I'm a hip-hop head, but anything Pantera works for me as well.
slayer - raining blood
you'll be putting people through the glass
Metallica: Seek and Destroy
Prong: Snap your fingers snap your neck
Pantera: Cowboys from Hell
All Out War
Tonight before the game, i'll be crankin Trivium's latest album.
Welcome To The Jungle
Snap - Rythym Is A Dancer
Culture Beat - Mr Vain
best pump up song right there
