Five Great Walk-Up Songs That Baseball Needs Now

3. Tie -- "Robot Rock" and "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" by Daft Punk

To be fair, you could probably make a list entirely composed of Daft Punk songs that should be used in athletic competitions at every possible moment. (Not a bad idea, actually.) And after narrowing things down as far as we possibly could, those crazy French cyborgs had to have two songs included.

"Robot Rock" has a great riff, a pounding bassline and the kind of dramatic kick in at the beginning that would be hard to beat for a crowd moment. "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" is basically a mission statement for athletes. (And might actually have an even better bass part.) Sure, you could probably choose between them, if you had to, and if you had years of your life to dedicate to unraveling the secrets of the awesomeness of French electronic music. But isn't it better to just enjoy both?
