Fresh FM’s Tommy McFly and Jen Richer break down this year’s walk-up playlist in the Washingtonian. Don’t be intimidated by the swagger.

*BONUS we put them all in a Spotify playlist so you can jam out like the Nats today or check out Superfan Andrew’s walk-up historical playlist, bringing you classics from some past and present players.

Ross Detwiler: “Craving Lucy” by Therapy 
“Great rock-y song. Fifteen really pumped up seconds.”

Stephen Strasburg: “Seven Nation Army” by the White Stripes

Jordan Zimmermann: “Hell on Wheels” by Brantley Gilbert
“You can’t go wrong with this.”

Tyler Clippard: “Ready or Not” by the Fugees
“Ready or not, you know he’s going to crack the ball out of the park. A great song. You could pick out Lauryn Hill’s voice anywhere.”

Zach Duke: “2×4” by Metallica
“It’s what you need. It is rock.”

Ryan Mattheus: “Firework” by Katy Perry
“A fresh artist, the poppiest song on the roster this year. The softer side of the pump-up songs, but one families are going to know and love.”

Craig Stammen: “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor
“Old-school, a throwback. Everyone from a 4-year-old to a 94-year-old will know this song.”

Drew Storen: “Bad Company” by Five Finger Death Punch
“The name pretty much says it all. There’s a clean and a not-so-clean version. They grab the cleanest 15 seconds, but it still has a charge and a feel to it.”

Roger Bernadina: “The System” by Popcaan
“This has a great feeling to it when it’s 158 degrees in the middle of August and people are diving for the shade. This will really get the crowd going.”

Bryce Harper: “Flower” by Moby
“It has a cool instrumental behind it. You can just see the crowd going crazy as he walks up with this and his swagger. The song just fits him.”
