Along with the new video boards in 2015, the Cubs premiered walkup music chosen by the players.
"Ando En La Versace" by Omega, Starlin Castro's walkup music last year that got everyone clapping (led by then-Cubs reliever Jason Motte) is gone from hitter walkup time, along with Starlin. The song is, though, now played in the seventh-inning stretch after "Take Me Out To The Ball Game" to get fans in a clapping rhythm before the Cubs come to bat in the inning.
Here's a complete list of all the Cubs' walkup songs for 2016. You'll note that some players have more than one song. Also note that while this list is accurate as of the date of publication of this article, players occasionally change their song requests during the season, so you might hear other songs as the year goes by.
Also, the Cubs make sure that any portions of songs played for walkup music are family-friendly and appropriate.
