Intimidating sports songs
Related: Bryce Harper Swing Analysis Used by Bronson Arroyo, Andrew Romine, Anthony Rizzo, and Peter Bourjos.“Scott Boras you over baby, Robinson Cano you’re coming with me.” “Somebody call a Brinks Truck, the boss back.” Used by Delmon Young “They say I couldn’t play baseball at all, now every day of my life I ball.” This song was used by Ricky Conlan for his entrance in his fight with Apollo Creed.This track is the perfect backdrop for one of MMA's signature walkouts. But when the jackboots, attack dogs and mental-hospital escape sirens finally give way to the music, it's still pretty darn raw. I don't see how anyone could just pop this song into their i Pod and enjoy that experience, but hey, it's all subjective at the end of the day. Surrounded by the Pride pyrotechnics and screaming Japanese legions, Fedor was the calm in the middle of the storm and the storm itself. Like Jon Fitch himself, this walkout song proves you don't have to be loud and wild to scare the beejezus out of someone. Regardless, the intimidation in these three-and-a-half minutes is a simple, objective fact.
If you’re a Chicago Blackhawks fan you’re likely familiar with this song.
Fitting, then, that it accompanied Chuck Liddell to the cage when the man himself was also at his menacing best.
With the possible exception of Wanderlei Silva's "Sandstorm," I'm not sure any song is more closely associated with a fighter than this song is with welterweight legend Matt Hughes.
But you don't have to be intimidating yourself to get the opponents and the crowd shrinking back like violets. These are the 10 most intimidating walkout songs of all time.
And while some of the actual fighters on this list are indeed intimidating themselves, this is not a list of intimidating fighters. So I don't want to hear your complaints about Wanderlei Silva not being on here.
