As everyone probably knows basketball season is here, and it is time to find some warm up music! Does any one have any good suggestions for a warm up or runout song? If you do post it please! Thanks in advance!December 31, 2003 at 12:39 am #52172sirhc09Member
I dont play basketball on a team but I do for fun. When I am training for other sports like track and soccer, I usually listen to hard rock I like “ment to live” by switchfoot, I dont know what kind of music you are looking for, so I couldnt say much!! sry!January 4, 2004 at 8:28 am #52169Flaming_GunsMember
do you mean songs that kind of “wake you up” and get you energetic?
i would listen to 80's pop. yeah, you heard me, 80's pop. party songs.
they really get the groove going, and get you kind of pumped up.January 12, 2004 at 3:13 am #52167Sh8keS 32Member
the kind of music i mean is like the kind you do warm ups to. like the music you listen to while you warm up before a gameJanuary 14, 2004 at 5:39 am #52170QwertyMember
Eye of the Tiger 🙂January 14, 2004 at 10:42 pm #52165tangledlisaMember
Let's get ready to RUUMMBBLEEEEE.
Back in HS we had warmup music like this.. but those songs were really old. If you want newer music or what's popular search on http://www.billboard.com – at least it may give you more ideas.January 15, 2004 at 1:31 pm #52164sciencefeelingMember
I will definitely go for some latin rithm, try David Bisbal with Ave Maria o Lloraré las penas. And some shakira, i.e. Madrid.
What can I say? I am Spanish…in my defense you have to admit it has been proven effective since La Macarena, hehehe.

Do a search for “NBA themes” or something along those lines. You get a few of the real NBA starting lineup songs. For instance, the most famous Chicago Bulls theme song.January 30, 2004 at 2:52 am #52174scooter_85Member

The name of the song is rock and roll part 2 by garry GlitterOctober 5, 2005 at 4:38 am #52173colinMember
Songs that get me pumped up (they all get me energized for different reasons, so it might be different for you, I don't know):
Nelly – Heart Of A Champion
A lot of Eminem songs
Jay-Z and Linkin Park – Points Of Authority/99 Problems
Nirvana – Smells Like Teen Spirit
R. Kelly – The World's Greatest
Shinedown – 45
Story of the Year – Until The Day I Die
Survivor – Eye Of The Tiger
Songs that get me focused (just as important as getting pumped up, especially in Cross Country):
Will Smith – Tell Me Why
Michael W. Smith – Lord Have Mercy
Evanescence – My Immortal
Enrique Iglesias – Hero
Ben Jelen – Come On
I'm not sure how this compares to other people's playlists, but these songs do the trick for me. I have somewhat weird of a taste in music for a guy though 😉 . Good luck!October 24, 2005 at 11:42 pm #52180suzuki3400Member
the best warm up song for basketball is what's it all for by bazarre royale.
our vasity team had that and everyone loved it.October 24, 2005 at 11:50 pm #52181suzuki3400Member
does any one know any good warm up songs other than the crappy songs that you gave to this guy?
i want songs that are more modern and rap.October 25, 2005 at 1:02 am #52175gossipingraeMember
i like “bring em out” by TI and jay-z, the women's soccer has that as one of their songs.
eye of the tiger is a good one too, like everyone else said
the “rocky” theme is good too.
for women's basketball, “hollaback girl” is a good one by gwen stefani
get any of the jock jams cds. those are good ones to get you pumped.
and suzuki… if you don't like anyone's ideas, go find your own songs 🙂
