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.
