It’s that time of year again. Football camps are starting up not only in the NFL but in high school as well. This is where you truly separate the studs from the duds. Yes, everyone can get up to play on Sunday or Saturday. But what about when it’s 100 degrees out and you’re running drills in that summer heat? Yeah, you need something to push you through it. Whereas baseball players have walk-up songs to get them hyped, football players can only listen before and after a game or a workout. Because of that, each song needs to hit hard and grab their attention right away.
What a perfect time to create a playlist curated around getting hyped before your game while also being able to turn up with the squad after getting that coveted W. Hip-hop is at an interesting place right now. A rapper with one eye from New Jersey is absolutely crushing the game with numerous top-charting hits. Meek Mill and Drake are going after each other’s throats after Meek called out the 6 God out for not writing his own raps. Music streaming rivalries are at an all-time high and we have already seen better music in 2015 than we did in all of 2014.
July is ending and August is here, so you know what that means. Football is back, baby. It is the time of the year when the players show up for training camp and we, the fans, see who was doing two-a-days at the gym and who was doing two-a-days at McDonald’s.
We decided to take a twist on this playlist. Instead of creating something to just jump around to with your teammates before the game, we wanted a solid handful of tracks to listen to before and after the game. A solid selection of songs that will get you excited to hit someone as well as mellowing out after a grueling game. This playlist isn’t for the light-hearted. So, while you’re putting on your helmet be sure to grab the auxiliary cord and put on this playlist. There isn’t anything better than football season.
This is the Only Pregame and Postgame Playlist Every Football Player Needs This Season.
