Whether you’re on the field, on the bench, or on the couch, sports fans everywhere enjoy getting pumped up for games. Here are some tried-and-true songs to get your heart racing and ready to scream your way through any sporting event:

1. “Bangarang” – Skrillex

This song should be enough to get you focused, but it won’t enrage you to the point of kicking in your TV.

2. “Can’t Hold Us” – Macklemore ft. Ray Dalton

Although it’s a couple years old now, “Can’t Hold Us” remains a staple in athletic warm-up mixes.

3. “Hall of Fame” – The Script ft. Will.I.Am

Don’t let the melodic opening fool you. This song can start a fire in your heart quicker than people give it credit for.

4. “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark” – Fall Out Boy

A go-to for modern rock music, Fall Out Boy calls for intensity at any venue.

5. “Lose Yourself” – Eminem

A classic pump-up tune – now over 10 years old – and still just as prominent as when it first was released in 2003.

6. “Ready, Steady, Go” – Paul Oakenfold

This song, though not very lyrically heavy, is sure to get people on their feet.

7. “Hymn of Valor” – Instrumental Core

Another lyrically light song, “Valor” is a prime choice for dramatic entrances and building suspense.

8. “300 Violin Orchestra” – John Quintero

It’s just powerful enough to grab your attention, but not enough to work you into a frenzy.

9. “The Wings of Icarus” – Celldweller

This is the go-to skate out song for the Gannon hockey team. It was used by the Pittsburgh Penguins during part of the 2013-14 season as the soundtrack to their pre-game video. No lyrics are needed here because the well-timed pauses and beat changes speak for themselves.
