If you’re planning on going to the game, you’ve gotta tailgate. People can underrate how important a quality music selection is during your tailgate, so here’s ten suggestions to get your crew in the right mindset.

Van Halen – Panama

If their riffs don’t get your blood heated maybe thinking about the lovely Central American country will. Top five scene in Superbad.

Reel Big Fish – Beer

Give me ska or give me death. The title says it all.

AC/DC – Hells Bells

This song screams football. I’m pretty sure at least 30 percent of all high schools incorporate this into their Friday night lights bonanza.

U2 – Sunday Bloody Sunday

“Tonight we can be as one” honestly they should just blast this song in the locker room for raising hype purposes. Plus, all the people who were PO’d about U2 infiltrating their iPhones can get exposed to one of their best tunes.

Guns and Roses – Welcome To The Jungle

Going off the hype dynamic, Trestman should just crank this to 11 Sunday after U2. Look at the guy, I bet he eats sleeps and breathes Guns and Roses. I wonder if he is Team Axl or Team Slash?

Tom Petty – Won’t Back Down

There’s nothing wrong with inspiring a little hope while you maul wings. Tom Petty just might be the most played artist during tailgates ever.

Bruce Springsteen – Dancing In The Dark

I feel like you must incorporate a little Boss into your Sunday tailgate. Actually I heard through the grapevine they are thinking about making it an amendment in the Constitution.

The Neighbourhood – Sweather Weather

Hey throw some new age stuff in there, might as well. How excited is everyone that sweater season is almost here? I can’t even.

Neil Diamond – Sweet Caroline

I know what you’re thinking, Andy this is a baseball song idiot. I’ll reply back the bah bah bah part is addicting no matter what time of year. Test it out, put it on and I bet everyone goes BAH BAH BAH!

M.I.A. – Paper Planes

With all the food and beer you’re going to consume, it might be a fantastic idea to put on this song to get your whole tailgate dancing. Beat the Pack and deliver like UPS Trucks!

There you have it. May this Sunday be filled of food, festivities, great tailgating music, and perhaps the Bears will beat the Packers by 80, you never know. Bear Down.
