Playlist: Bring It On

45 songs that can get you hyped and ready for anything on game day

There’s quite nothing like competition to get your primal instincts out. That desire to crush your “enemy” is innate, whether it’s an inter-office badminton tournament, tennis socials at the courts, or an important match-up between fierce rivals. (Speaking of which, holler if you’re watching Ateneo-La Salle on Sunday!)

A lot of athletes—from the pros to  have a pre-game ritual, and that usually includes music to set the mood. And that mood, that running dialogue is: Give up now because I’m about to tear you a new one. These tracks here—through empowering lyrics or heart-pumping beats—are a shot in the arm to get your game face on.
