Last but not least, Stroman and Tepera

Marcus Stroman

KMT by Drake feat. Giggs

KMT is an acronym meaning Kissin’ My Teeth. It’s the fifteenth track on Drake’s More Life playlist.

The song has also gained popularity among gamers for sampling ‘His World, the theme of Sonic ’06.

Giggs (Nathaniel Robinson) is a British rapper who collaborated with Drake on the song.

In 2016, Giggs’ fourth album Landlord, which entered and peaked at No. 2 on the UK Albums Chart as it became Giggs’ highest-charting album of his career. It is also his most critically acclaimed album.

Ryan Tepera

Welcome Home by Coheed and Cambria

The song was featured as a playable track in the video game Rock Band, and on the soundtrack of Madden NFL 06 for Xbox 360.

Tepera was called up numerous times last season. It’s fitting to say that he’s found a comfortable spot in the bullpen, feeling right at home in the majors.

And that brings us to the conclusion of the walk-up music series. Which player has the best song? Does anyone desperately need to change their music? It’s a little thing throughout the course of the game and season, but it can turn into a fun interaction with fans, and in many cases that’s exactly how players treat it.
