2 Unlimited – Get Ready for This
23. AC/DC – TNT
ESPN has put together a nice collection of stadium anthems. Their list includes:
20. Guns and Roses – Welcome to the Jungle
39. 21. 2
When is comes to stadium music, there are “the classics” like Queen’s “We Will Rock You” and there are more modern hits from artists like Eminem and the Black Eyed Peas. Most NFL teams tend to mix up their playlists with a combination of classics and current high-energy Billboard singles. There are also some teams that have specific theme songs–including both official fight songs and unofficial music.
15. The Romantics – What I Like About You
46. Gary Glitter – Rock & Roll, Pt. Oakland Raiders – Oakland Raiders Theme Song, from NFL Films.
44. New Orleans Saints – Half Time, by Ying Yang Twins
Am I missing any? If you can think of others, leave a note in the comments and I’ll try to keep this list updated.
36. Chicago Bears – Super Bowl Shuffle, by the Chicago Bears
14. Black Eyed Peas – Let’s Get it Started
Some NFL teams have adopted specific songs as a theme song, or in one way or another are associated with a certain song. For example, who can forget the “Super Bowl Shuffle” song as performed by the Chicago Bears in 1985? Here are some others.

51. Rednex – Cotton Eye Joe
49. AC/DC – Shook Me All Night Long

33. The Ramones – Blitzkrieg Bop
