Another year. Another list of bangers. Ole Miss baseball released the official walkout songs for each player heading into the 2018 season. Naturally, a tradition unlike any other, 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. Grae Kessinger: "Butterfly Effect" by Travis Scott

Hip hop song of the year in 2017 don’t @ me.

2. Michael Spears: "Good Life" by Kanye West feat. T-Pain

Ye used a sample from The King of Pop’s “P.Y.T.” so this one tugs on my heartstrings. Well done.

3. Anthony Servideo: "Soul Survivor" by Jeezy feat. Akon

Be Kind Rewind already making a case to be a fan favorite. He’s done his summer reading.

4. Tyler Keenan: "Finesse (Remix)" by Bruno Mars feat. Cardi B

90’s nostalgia, our generation’s Prince, and the Queen of the Bronx. Yeah this is top five material.

5. Nick Fortes: "Night Call" by Steve Aoki feat. Migos & Lil Yachty

Atlanta’s favorite sons teaming up with Lil Boat and Steve is an easy call here.

6. Will Golsan: "Silence" by Marshmello feat. Khalid

If y’all are still sleeping on Dotcom and Georgia’s newest son, wake up.

7. Brady Feigl: "Ain’t No Grave" by Johnny Cash

The Man in Black makes every top 10 no matter what. Thems the rules.

8. Emanuel Fernandez: "Public Service Announcement" by Jay Z

H O V

9. Colin Coates: "Arsonist’s Lullaby’" by Hozier

Good on colin for going with his heart. Great, great, GREAT record here.
