What Would Your MLB Walk Up Song Be?

The MLB walk-up song is the most innovative thing to hit the sport in the last 50 years (DH? A lower pitching mound? Really?). It got it’s start from the organists at ballparks who would play samples of songs to reflect what was going on (my favorite being the White Sox organist playing Kenny Roger’s “Lucille” when Oakland’s Dave Stewart came into a game in 1985 – he had just been arrested for soliciting a transvestite prostitute named, yes, Lucille). Then it gathered steam when Charlie Sheen’s Ricky Vaughn came out of the bullpen to the Trogg’s “Wild Thing” in “Major League.”
