If you’re tailgating without music, you’re not really tailgating. Same goes for pre-game Super Bowl parties, like the one you’ll be attending next Sunday. Chest-bump and chug-out all you want, there’s nothing like a solid hour of pump-up jams to set the mood for football’s biggest game of the year. With that in mind, here’s a playlist designed specifically for that purpose. Click the button below to hear the full set on Made Man’s Spotify.
1. “We Will Rock You” by Queen
Let’s start with the obvious. “We Will Rock You” has been a stadium favorite for years, and will be for years to come. You’re probably hearing the track’s ubiquitous stomp-stomp-clap in your head as you read this. Couple it with follow-up number “We Are the Champions” and you’ve just set the scene for an epic day of athletics.
2. “Spread Your Love” by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
Native San Francisco rock outfit BRMC offers the perfect track to get Niners fans riled for the game. The slow build leads to a hard-driving guitar line that’ll put anyone in the mood to win a championship. Or destroy a hotel room.
“E-Pro” is a hard and heavy anytime anthem aimed squarely at kicking listeners into overdrive.
3. “E-Pro” by Beck
Beck doesn’t mess around on “E-Pro.” From the second you hit play, it’s a hard and heavy anytime anthem aimed squarely at kicking listeners into overdrive. Try not to jump up and down too much during this one. You might spill your beer.
5. “Lonely Boy” by The Black Keys
Of course, you don’t have to turn to the classics for a classic sound. The Black Keys are rock and roll in its purest form, and “Lonely Boy” delivers a driving, fast-paced chorus that’ll have you on your feet and toasting your team in no time.
