Tailgate Tune-up

On Sunday it will be time to tailgate for the inaugural match of Orlando City in the MLS era. Looking forward to that great event, I've been thinking about a great tailgate mix tape and thought I'd throw together a few selections here for you.

Now it will probably be obvious to everyone the era of music I grew up hearing, but I'm trying to bring it forward and add a few tracks that the cool kids might have on their playlist. So check out my suggestions and let me know--what's your favorite pre-match tailgate tune? What would you add to this list, and which song from my list is your favorite?

  1. Rock and Roll - Led Zeppelin
  2. Start Me Up - The Rolling Stones
  3. The Creator - Pete Rock & C. L. Smooth
  4. Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne
  5. Gangsta's Paradise - Coolio
  6. Livin' on a Prayer - Bon Jovi
  7. Friends - Led Zeppelin
  8. Celebration Day - Led Zeppelin
  9. Get Lucky - Daft Punk & Pharrell Williams
  10. Thrift Shop - Macklemore & Ryan Williams (with Wanz)
  11. Lay it on the Line - Triumph
  12. Baba O'Riley - The Who

Now it's your turn: tell me what's on your pre-match playlist!
