They go through 4 songs with each home game, Jump is still one of them.

Yeah, I agree Tom Petty sucks. He is like chick rock... I don't know any straight men that like his music. It is just bad.

Sorry dude, as much as you want it they won't play LFO when running out onto the field.

It's time they update their music.

They should play "We're all in this together" when they run out onto the field to show their team solidarity

Another awesome song would be "Push it to the limit" to show that they're in it to win it this year.

"Get Down" would be when they make an awesome play

I think it'd be cool to have them come out to Here come the Cubs by the Beach Boys

I love Tom Petty, but I think something a little more uptempo would be better. I have never liked Van Halen. Maybe go with 'Tallica's "Battery."

On a side note: What if the Patriots run out of the tunnel in their season opener to, " Breaking the Law"

lmao

^^ nice, General...haha

With the song intro though, I really could care less. Van Halen isn't my favorite, and 'Jump' is kinda annoying after a while.

And while we're on the topic of songs played at Wrigley, is it just me or is that damn 'Go, Cubs, Go' song played when they win annoying or what? I'm glad to hear it because I know the Cubbies won, but it annoys the hell outta me.

Val Halen is better than Tom Petty, but he has a few good songs. Personally i really like Free Fallin' and Won't Back Down.

It can get annoying but what it stands for makes it bare-able.

i disagree with that statement but i also understand you have your own opinion. I love Last dance with mary jane, Free Fallin, Won't Back Down, Running down a dream, learning to fly, the waiting. All very good songs. you know what im going to make a poll in the music forum now lol.

That is fair, i can definitely understand why you would think that.

Have you heard Free Fallin'? I don't know any straight guy who doesn't like that song.

Your telling me you would rather listen to Van Halen then Tom Petty... Petty is one of the greatest guitar/vocalist in the history of music... Van Halen is cool if you like watching dudes in spandex. Just because you sing about chicks Dave doesn't mean we don't know your thinking about dudes.

I disagree... When I'm drunk, Go Cubs Go is the greatest song in the history of man... And if I hear it at Wrigley, that means I'm drunk. When not drunk.. eh.

Petty is great and everything, but i really don't want to be discussing any sort of Free Fallin on a Cubs board right now.
