Jock Jams

It is a common misconception that music lovers (particularly the indie rock type) hate sports. That is simply not true, faithful Alien Corpse reader!

Not only does Alien Corpse love the sensitive musing of Elliot Smith and The Shins, we also love to see Brian Urlacher lay a hit on an unsuspecting running back.

So this week Alien Corpse has decided to write about that wonderful and scary place where music and sport collide: the Jock Jam. Here is a list of Alien Corpse's Top Five Jock Jams.

5. "Welcome to the Jungle" by Guns N' Roses

4. "Bullet with Butterfly Wings" by Smashing Pumpkins

3. "Desire" by U2

2. "Song 2" by Blur

And the number one Jock Jam of all time:

1. "We Are The Champions" by Queen

Honorable Mentions: "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor, "Get Free" by The Vines, "Time is Running Out" by Muse, "Boom" by P.O.D., "Another One Bites the Dust" by Queen, "We Will Rock You" by Queen, and "Rock You Like a Hurricane" by The Scorpions

P.S. Go Bears!

Dude. Your FROM Indiana. Just because you LIVE in Illinois does not permit you to jump ship.

That's ok, Peyton and I don't need your support. Like Urlacher can possibly single-handedly stop Manning...he'll at least need both hands, and maybe his legs.

Seriously though, that list rules. RULES!!!

Basketball fans will request the dropping of "Desire" to be replaced by "Elevation." C'mon, I'm pretty sure that song is about basketball.

Oh, don't forget that "Na, Na, Na-Na, Hey!" and that 90s song by C&C Music Factory...hmmm Gonna Make You Sweat(Everybody Dance Now) the 90s sucked except for "alternative."

Well played, Sir!

But I also agree that putting up a Bears pic is a violation of all that is holy about Alien Corpse!

this list is painfully incomplete without 'Click, Click, Boom' by Saliva- the smoothest pump-ump tune for many high school LBs from May of 1999 til October 2001 when Limp Bizkit's 'Rollin' hit the shelves.

Man I can't believe you guys didn't know that.
