Have a game today? Get pumped to this “battle cry for the war”. #CaptainUPreGameMix

Song #18 on our pre-game mix has what our team member, Bernie, calls an “infectious driving bass line throughout the whole song” and an “other worldly synth sound gives an outer space feel and builds towards a crescendo of horns that create a cacophony of chaos with wailing horns and thom yorke screams.”

What does that have to do with getting pumped up for a game? “This song goes out to everyone that ‘got fear and is holding on’ This song pumps me up because of the slow building tension and the palpable resolution- this song is the battle cry for the war with the aliens.”

So maybe you aren’t going to war with aliens, but you are about to battle your opponents, so listen to The National Anthem by Radiohead to pump you up before your next game!
