Rockies At-Bat Music 2009

with 73 comments

Well, better late than never, right?

This is the third year I’ve tried to keep track of the music used by Colorado Rockies players during games (you can read the 2007 post here and the 2008 post here). So, now it’s time for 2009, finally. It was much easier for me to make the list this year thanks to iPhones and the Shazam app (seriously, if you don’t have it, get it — it’s awesome).

The list is in alphabetical order again this year, and I won’t take anyone off who gets sent to the minors (sorry, Jason!) or put on the DL. I’ll update as I get more songs.

Garrett Atkins: The Way I Are by Timbaland

Clint Barmes: Fistfull of Steel by Rage Against the Machine

Joe Beimel: God’s Gonna Cut You Down by Johnny Cash

Rafael Betancourt:

Jhoulys Chacin:

Aaron Cook:

Manny Corpas: used to use Impacto (Remix) by Daddy Yankee but recently changed — I don’t know what the new song is yet

Todd Helton: These Are My People by Rodney Atkins

  1. Huston Streets song is Nas – “Hate Me Now” (Intrumental)

    Brad Hawpe has been using Nickleback’s – “Rockstar” again lately

    Ian Stewart uses – M.I.A.’s – “Paper Planes”

    Great list, just thought I’d help fill in a few holes. I love using this website to update me intros in MLB09 and this page has helped a lot, thanks.

  5. Thanks so much! For some reason, I find “Gettin Jiggy With It” totally hilarious and awesome.

  6. Alan Embree comes in to Chicken Fried by Zac Brown Band.

    I think Clint Barmes changed his. It has been a different one the last few games I’ve been to. I’m not sure what it is though.

    Paul Phillips uses More Than A Feeling by Boston at the last game I went to.

  8. Carlos Gonzales is Big Thing Poppin by T.I. Ian Stewart went form Day N Nite by Kid Cudi to Paper Planes by M.I.A. to his current song Turn my Swag on by Soulja Boy. Paul Phillips goes though numerous 80′s songs, and those are all the ones I know. Does anyone know the name of the song that the Rockies take the field to?

  15. Does anyone know the at bat music Ian Stewart had on friday july 24th against the giants? It wasn’t “turn my swag on” or any of the other songs listed for him here. Maybe he changed it again? Anyone have any idea?

    26 Jul 09 at 2:48 am

  16. What is the song that T-Pain is featured in that i believe has the lyrics “if tomorrow comes” followed by pain singing a run of HEEEYYYYYYY. haha. cant find it anywhere.

    David Capozzoli

    26 Jul 09 at 11:04 am

  17. Hey, does anyone know the name of the song that is played right before they do the lineup announcements? Typically it’s played about 10-15 minutes before the 1st pitch.

    And I’m not thinking about the song they take the field to . . . I know that’s the Nickleback song.

    Thanks!

    John

    26 Jul 09 at 1:17 pm

  18. Stewart’s most recent song is All the Above by T-Pain.

    dom

    26 Jul 09 at 5:38 pm

  19. Are you possibly thinking of “Let it Rock” by Kevin Rudolph?

    Jon

    26 Jul 09 at 6:20 pm

  20. On 7/26, he used All the Above (Spanglish Mix) by Maino feat. T-Pain.

    Tracy

    26 Jul 09 at 6:23 pm

  21. No, that’s not the song. Unfortunately I can never make out any of the lyrics, but it kind of sounds like Incubus. It’s not them, either, but that’s who the singer sounds like.

    It’s played in the same spot that Streetcorner Symphony was played in last season.

    John

    26 Jul 09 at 6:32 pm

  22. It’s “This Town” by O.A.R.

    Thanks Christopher! Now off to iTunes . . .

    John

    27 Jul 09 at 8:33 am

  23. Dex just just changed his this past SF series, it’s no longer 50 cent – get up or the john legend song. Anyone know what it is? I can never make out the words

    Jake C

    28 Jul 09 at 1:22 pm

  24. What is the techno song they use to pump up the crowd in the 9th?….they play it a lot when the game is close to being over….I was at the Sunday day game against the Giants, and I think they played it for every batter Huston Street faced…

    Ian

    28 Jul 09 at 3:23 pm

  25. The song you’re looking for is “Allegretto” by Bond. They play it after each of the first two outs in the 9th and then after each strike or foul-ball until the 3rd out…

    joe

    31 Jul 09 at 1:04 am

  26. Chris Iannetta’s batting song is “Whatever It Takes” by Tom Morello’s new band The Nightwatchman. Per Troy Renck.

    6 Aug 09 at 8:53 pm

  28. Anyone know what Omar quintanilla has been using lately? I was at a game the other night and I know I liked it but didn’t make out a single lyric.

    Kyle

    8 Aug 09 at 2:40 pm

  29. Last season Omar was using “Stronger” by Kanye West. But I haven’t heard his this season, he could have changed it… And Jayson Nix? He’s went to the White Sox awhile ago… By the way, saw the game tonight and Joe Beimel came out to “God’s Gonna Cut You Down” by Johnny Cash…

    joe

    8 Aug 09 at 10:11 pm

    Kyle

    10 Aug 09 at 2:16 am

  32. They’ve been playing Call on Me by Eric Prydz quite a bit lately, after somebody gets a hit, I think. It’s a good song.

    Michael

    26 Aug 09 at 9:33 pm

  45. Actually it is called “Whatever it Takes”, by “Tom Morello the Nightwatchman”. You can’t find it on itunes or limewire or anything like that. The only place I found it was on Amazon.com, select MP3 downloads, and then search “The Fabled City” (name of the album), and then it will bring up where you can preview or buy the MP3, and this is correct, I just downloaded it last night.

    Eric

    27 Aug 09 at 1:23 pm

  46. Oh and Rafael Betancourt came out to “Black Betty” by Ramjam on Tuesday night.

  48. Hey all, I was just wondering if anyone knew the name of the song played after Giambi hit the go ahead single to score one the other night. You can hear it in the background here: http://colorado.rockies.mlb.com/media/video.jsp?topic_id=col&c_id=col

    It almost sounds like “I believe…..”

    Thanks
