The tunes you hear on your way to the dish or to the mound are very important. How else are you going to slap a dinger or catch someone looking with some filth? Let's take a look at who cracked the Cup's top 10.

Ole Miss baseball released the official walkout songs for each player heading into the 2017 season. Naturally, per tradition, we're going to rank them using nothing but our own trivial opinions.

Let's take a look at the Cup's Walk Out Power Rankings.

1. Andrew Lowe: "Black Beatles" by Rae Sremmurd

Obviously.

2. D.J. Miller: "Pimp Juice" by Nelly

An oldie but a goodie.

3. Korey Bell: "God’s Gonna Cut You Down" by Johnny Cash

Anytime someone born after 1990 knows who The Man in Black is, I applaud it. He must also be a fan of the end of the 2012 Egg Bowl motivational video.

4. Kyle Watson: "Kickstart My Heart" by Mötley Crüe

I can only assume this is a shout out to Dwight K. Schrute’s sales call ritual.

5. Thomas Dillard: "Ordinary Life" by The Weeknd

Here’s to Tank having plenty of beauty behind the madness on the field this year.

6. Colby Bortles: "Come and Get It" by Selena Gomez

Smash has another banger for everyone this season. This time, it’s from a former Disney star.

7. Tate Blackman: "Again" by Kevin Gates

Only fitting that Mr. Two Bag comes out to the man who has two phones.

8. Grae Kessinger: "Hands in the Air" by Miley Cyrus

The true freshman has learned well. First the mohawk, now Miley.

9. Brady Feigl: "Slow Loud and Bangin’" by Chamillionaire

This has to be a shout out to Nic “Beer Can Chicken” Perkins. Respect.

10. Nick Fortes: "No Problem" by Chance the Rapper feat. 2 Chainz & Lil Wayne

The sophomore catcher got him a real good jam with this one.
