FanPost Friday: Let’s pick some better walk up songs

And our own, while we’re at it.

Picking a good walk up song seems like an art form. Some guys seem to just pick a jam they are into in the moment, that’s a lot of fun and hypes them up, while other players manage to pick songs that seem to speak to who they are as people, or even to the franchise as a whole.

Some songs are fun, getting fans excited to see a player come to the plate, while others are boring and overdone. Also why do some guys pick songs with lyrics so profane they can only play the opening bars? (2016 Willson Contreras with “Simon Says” I’m looking at you)

This week’s prompt is twofold. We want to know whose songs you would change, and to what (and why), and also what song you would use for yourself given the opportunity. (Mine is definitely Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” and will never change.)

Head over to the FanPost section and select “New FanPost” on the left, then play DJ for us and pick better walk up songs, either for the Cubs, or any other players who you think could use a new one.
