Everyone has a favorite song, or a song that fits there personalities, but what song's fit the MLB team's personalities?  Well, if you want to learn, here's the place to come.  Here are the MLB team theme songs: 

Oh, yeah...on the song name, I included a You Tube link so you can listen as you go.

AL East

Baltimore Orioles"Dead and Gone" by T.I. ft. Justin Timberlake

Well, the name explains it all.  The O's are kind of dead and gone.

Boston Red Sox: "Come Out and Play" by Dyno Jamz

Local Seattle band Dyno Jamz, an undiscovered talent, wrote this, and it sounds just like the Red Sucks.  Check it out!

New York Yankees:  "This is Why I'm Hot" by MIMS

"I represent New York; it says so on my back!"

This song is all Yankees

Tampa Bay Rays"Remember the Name" by Fort Minor

The Rays fit this perfectly, because it looks like they just might compete in Baseball now, so they want you to remember their name.

Toronto Blue Jays:  "Middle of the Road" by the Pretenders

Even the band name fits!

AL Central

Chicago White Sox:   "Bad Boys" (Cops Theme) by Inner Circle

The Bad Boys of Chicago deserve this song.

Cleveland Indians:  "Drew Carey Theme" Song by Drew Carey

We'll just say Carey was an Indians fan.

Detroit Tigers:  "Old Time Rock n Roll" by Bob Segar

The old boys of Detroit get a song written by the tough Detroit native.

Kansas City Royals:  "Bad Day" by Daniel Powter

More like Bad Decade.

Minnesota Twins:  "Pressure Point" by The Zutons

This song just seems to fit...maybe it's because the Twins are never perfect?  I don't know.

AL West

Los Angeles Angels:  "Halo" by Beyonce

The Halos have a song named after them!

Oakland A's:  "Bad Boys" (Again) by Inner Circle

The Bad Boys of Oakland...And the Giambis.

Seattle Mariners:  "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" by Green Day

Too bad...so many seasons of broken dreams.

Texas Rangers:  "Wanted Dead or Alive" by Bon Jovi

A tough cowboy song for the Texas team.

NL East

Atlanta Braves:  "Problems (Statlanta)" by Stat Quo

Stalanta, "Your squad be bustin’ for recognition,"  Beside the bad words, it works well with Atlanta.

Florida Marlins:  "Baby Come Back" by Player

With a low budget, the Fish are always asking their players "Baby come back!"

New York Mets:  "Meltdown" by Missy Elliot

Sorry, Mets fans...heartbreak's tough.

Philli Phillies:  "Sweet Victory" by David Glen Eisley

Well, I hear winning a World Series is pretty good.

Washington Nationals:  "Beat It" by Michael Jackson

That's what Montreal told baseball's worst franchise:  "Beat it, just beat it!"

NL Central

Chicago Cubs:  "Heartless" by Kanye West

Baseball, and a rowdy Cub's fan, have been heartless to the Cubbies.

Cincinnati Reds:  "Coming Back to Life" by Pink Floyd

They're coming back!

Houston Astros:  "Lone Ranger Theme (William Tell Overture Finale)" by Gerlardo Rossini

Because they're from Texas and always chasing the top guys.

Milwaukee Brewers:  "Beer Song" by Adam Sandler

When in Milwaukee...

Pittsburg Pirates:  "A Pirate's Life for Me" copyright Disney Company

What's it like?

St. Louis Cardinals:  "Summer Nights" by Rascal Flatts

Normally, I'm not a fan of country, but even to me this song sounds good.  It sounds like a St. Louis Baseball song.

NL West

Arizona Diamondbacks:  "His Mistakes" by Ne-Yo

Some mistakes, by management and young players, have cost the D-backs.

Colorado Rockies:  "Rockie Mountain High" by John Denver

The height at that stadium makes a difference...and that height is given a tribute in this Denver song.

Los Angeles Dodgers:  "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey

Well Dodgers fans, all I can say is wait 'til next year.

This goes out to Jake Peavey and Adrian Gonzalez.
