Sport songs often sound kind of cheesy, most do.....centerfield by John forgerty is great.

But I came across this hockey song by warren zen on, I think it's perfect, it wasn't a rah rah go team kind of song, it was a real song, I have dozens of songs written in this context, admittedly not as good as mr zevons, he absolutely nails what a fighting player is on a hockey team, that's letterman saying hit somebody!

Need I mention Sirius by The Alan Parsons Project?

I recall a particular song in my infancy from INXS called The One Thing. CBS played the opening of that song for the NBA playoffs in the early eighties. That song was before the band cracked the mainstream. Could not figure out who that was straight off. I first got in to INXS with Listen Like Thieves and Kick.

"A Dying Cubs Fan's Last Request" by Steve Goodman has always been one of my favorites.
And now, it is, happily, out obsolete!

I'm with Todd on this one:-)


Back in the 80's, Fogerty's "Centerfield" was much fun:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04KQydlJ-qc

Does Dylan's "Hurricane" count? I won't suggest it 'less someone else agrees...

Our college, the DePauw Tigers, used that song from day one of it's release to the point I hated it... now it is just a memory of glory days.

Ok, so does Springsteen's "Glory Days" count? It does center around a "pitcher who could throw a speedball by you"

:-)

Well,
Dave Dudley's TRUCKERS PRAYER is pretty good. Oh, wait, that isn't a Sports Song is it? The only one I know is TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALL GAME.

And if you are a Chicago Blackhawks fan, not too many songs get you more riled up than "Chelsea Dagger" by The Fratellis -- which is played after every Hawks victory.

There are three type of sport songs. First is the supporting a particular team song, the Cubs had many most derisive, until the finally won one last year

The second not really sport songs but they play them at live sporting events to get the crowd riled up.

Blitzkrieg bop by the Ramones
Pump it up by Elvis Costello
Welcome to the jungle. Gnr

At games there are also clear use of songs to fit a situation

If a player gets caught stealing, they might play got caught stealing by Alice n chains

When a player fouls out in basketball they might play hit the road jack

When a manager goes out to talk to his pitcher,they might play
Lie to me, by Johnny Lang, they can get very clever doing that too

Then, songs about sports itself, or using sports as a metaphor like
Paradise by the Dashboard light, boys of summer is referring to baseball Time of the year, but not baseball per se

There's probably hundreds of baseball songs
