Nowadays the spectacle of in-game sports has evolved from the occasional play of the organ to whole soundtracks being synced to LED wristbands. Some popular tracks find their way onto the game time playlist during the course of a season, while other mainstays have graced in-game sound systems for years now.
Not all songs are created equal, however. While certain tunes are a widely-beloved fixtures, others have worn out their welcome. Here is, in no particular order, the 10 most overplayed songs at sporting events, plus a bonus that we’re not quite sure counts as a song yet.
1. “Turn Down for What” by DJ Snake and Lil Jon
It’s pretty incredible how quickly this song was hammered into the ground. At first, a 10-second snippet served as a pretty good hype song. Once Lil Jon’s inebriated yell came over the PA system the crowd would go into a frenzy. But after a year of the same snippet playing at every sporting event under the sun, the party song began to have a less powerful effect. What’s worse is the impression we get from in-game music recently; unless Lil Jon does something to get the song banned, it won’t go away any time soon.
