Sports-related songs usually fall into one of three categories:
1) Hollywood Sports song.
2) Fan Sports songs.
3) Songs sung by Athletes.
(Curiously enough, only two from the third category made the list.)
The Hollywood category usually comes from a sports-themed movie.
How good the movie is and how well the song meshes with it will determine if it becomes a classic or not.
The Fan category is actually decided by the fans at live sporting events.
The DJ plays a tune and if it gets the crowd going crazy, he/she will add it to the play list.
If the people stay in their seats, the song is chucked.
So from those three categories, B/R gives you the most comprehensive sports song list ever!
Now, let's start the countdown.
