Here are the 2022 Cubs walkup/intro songs

A lot of new players this year means a lot of new music at the ballpark.

You hear music played on the Wrigley Field P.A. system when each Cubs batter comes up to hit, or when a pitcher heads to the mound. Some of the songs are quite recognizable, others you might not be familiar with.

Below are the songs chosen by 2022 Cubs players, and with so many new players on the team there’s a lot of music being played that you might not have heard before. Many thanks to the Cubs, who sent me a list of the songs each player uses. Some use only one, but others have multiple song choices as noted below. Of the players on the current 28-man roster, only Alfonso Rivas and Drew Smyly were not on the list the Cubs sent me.

Notes: All songs played at Wrigley Field are family-friendly “clean” versions. Players often change songs, so you might hear something at Wrigley coming up that’s not on this list. The song title is listed first, then the artist.
