First off I want to say how cool it is to have somebody who has a voice with the org. here online with us.

My son commented to me at the game Saturday that it was kind of like having a friend that you know talking to us during the game.

It's going to be hard for me to pick out some songs because to be honest with you I understand you need club/arena music to keep the tempo upbeat.

However since you broke out some oldschool 80's music I figure "what the hell" I might as well give you some more choices & if nothing else I guess I just love to read myself in print. :D

Higher ground by Red Hot Chilli Peppers (or even older school Stevie Wonder)

Photograph by Def Lepard

Walk by Pantera (risky from the hard rock standpoint but a very very powerfull song & it would certainly keep my blood up)

Round & round by Ratt

Still of the night by Whitesnake

Iron Man by Black Sabbath

Crazy Train by Ozzy Osborne

Live Wire by Motley Crue (actually there are other Crue songs that would fit in line with the whole arena thing most notably "Smoking in the boys room" & "Dr. Feelgood")

Talk Dirty to me by Poison

867 5309/Jenny by Tommy Tutone

We're not gonna take it by Twisted Sister (actually I think you've played this one)

Cherry Pie by Warrent

Love gun by Kiss (hey a guy can hope can't he :) )

Rubber Band Man by the Spinners (one of my personnal favorites)

Take me home tonighe by Eddie Money

Enter Sandman by Metallica

Punk Rock Girl by the deadmilkmen (yea, I wanna see you play that. :evillaugh: )

Ok, I could go on but I'll stop now.

***Late edit***

I did forget we have a very special request that I feel would benefit the entire franchise if not the state of Indiana. He PB you might single handidly get rid of our state debt if you would honor this one special request.

Straight up by Paula Abdul

Doug would be eternally gratefull :devil: :dance:

A worried man, by the Kingston Trio.

Just kidding, but this song has a story behind it. I used to play chess at work and sometimes I would try to get in the other guys head by singing four lines of the Kingston Trio's hit, A Worried Man. Which goes like this.

It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
Iím worried now but I wonít be worried long


Wouldn't it be great to have the crowd sing those lines before a Pacer game! :D :D :D

Straight up by Paula Abdul

LOL! I stopped reading when I saw that and thought "uh oh".

What can I say. I was at an impressionable age then and Paula Abdul was (and is) very, very cute.

I really wonder how the feelings for the DJ run amoung the fans? I know that I love it and I think it is a great idea, especially since he takes feedback from us, but I wonder because I just had to shut my radio off because I got tired of Greg Rakestraw (Local Sports talk) spend 5 min ripping him, and it kinda pissed me off a bit. My thought is, if you want the game to be so much like the College game, go watch college and stop crying about how the pro game needs to be like the college game.

Rakestraw's ripping someone else for being annoying? That's funny.

I wish WIBC sports talk was on durring afternoon drive time. MPOS can be utterly brutal to listen too considering he has done nothing but rip on the Pacers all regular season, then all of a sudden has a change of heart after the Boston series. Sports Desk is ok most days, but Rakestraw whining is enough to make me listen to MPOS. So...

I got two letters for you, XM.

Seriously, if you have a long commute, it's a life savor. SportsBash (formerly SportsBrothers), ESPNRadio's late afternoon show, is excellent. Chris K. is funny and knowledgeable, and he makes sure to cover a wide range of topics. He doesn't spend the whole show on baseball (I'm talking to you, Dan Patrick) or college football ('Herd). And he normally speaks a great deal about the NBA, even during football season. He can go a little too pop culture for some, but it's not like he's Kornheiser or something.

If you're around you're computer, I'd listen to him on espnradio.com. 3pm-6pm (4-7 EDT), right after Patrick. I highly recommend it.

My biggest thing isn't lack of options or wanting to listen to a national broadcast. I actually enjoy local sportstalk over national 10X's over unless it is dedicated to racing... I just wish that the local options were better. You got one guy that is a total *** and is full of himself and another guy that is whiney and his show is about as dry as my mother in law's Thnxgiving turkey.

I'm not sure if Paul is still around, but I'll give my :twocents:

First off, I was at the New Jersey game April 9th , and Paul B did a fine job. The crowd really does seem to respond to the stuff you play, or maybe it's just how it's presented. I don't know for sure, but it does add to the overall game experience.

I've got pretty wide musical tastes [thanks in part to help from the good folks on this board :flirt:], so I'll list a little bit of the stuff I like, specifically the type I think would be most appropriate for an NBA game.

Older rock:

[i]AC/DC - "Highway to Hell," "Back in Black," "You Shook Me," "Hell's Bells"

Black Sabbath - "Iron Man," "Fairies Wear Boots"

Led Zeppelin - "Rock and Roll," "Stairway to Heaven" [that's just a great song], "Bron-Y-Aur Stomp" [very nice rhythm]

Rolling Stones - "Get Off of My Cloud," "You Can't Always Get What You Want" [that would be nice if the opposing coach was complaining about a call at the time :D], "Brown Sugar," "Satisfaction," "Jumpin' Jack Flash"

Jimi Hendrix - "Purple Haze," "Fire," .... the one and only guitar god.

ZZTop - "Bad to the Bone," "Sharp Dressed Man"

The Clash - "Should I Stay or Should I Go," "I Fought the Law," "London Calling"

Steppenwolf - "Born to be Wild," "Magic Carpet Ride" .... two that everyone will know.

Guns N Roses - "Sweet Child O' Mine" "Paradise City"

Queen - other than the obvious "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions," "Another One Bites the Dust" and "Bohemian Rhapsody" are fantastic.


Newer Rock:

Nirvana - "Smells Like Teen Spirit," "Breed," "Territorial Pissings," "Come as You Are" .... some of my favourite stuff.

Rage Against the Machine - "Killing in the Name," "Know Your Enemy," "Wake Up," "Take the Power Back" .... anything from their first album, really. Very loud and energetic.

System of a Down - "Bounce," "DDevil," "Sugar," "F--- the System" [there's no cursing until after the best part is over], "Toxicity," "Shimmy," "I-E-A-I-A-I-O" .... extremely energetic. Another one of my favourite new metal bands.

Sublime - "Santeria," "What I Got"

Saliva - "Click Click Boom"

Drowning Pool - "Bodies," and almost anything else from the "Sinner" album. Relatively hard, but not too hard.

Hot Action Cop - "Going Down on It" lesser-known, but I think it's worth checking out.

Cake - "Going the Distance," "Shadow Stabbing," and the indomitable "Short Skirt, Long Jacket" :D


Rap:

Most of what I like is relatively old-school. But that's only because old-school is better. :cool:

Eminem - "My Name Is," "Business," "Lose Yourself," "Guilty Conscience," "Drug Ballad," "My Dad's Gone Crazy"

Tupac - "All Eyez on Me," "Changes," "Picture Me Rollin'"

Run-DMC - "It's Tricky," "Walk This Way"

Beastie Boys - "Girls," "Brass Monkey"

Nas - "Made You Look," "I Can"

Cypress Hill: "Insane in the Brain," "Rap Superstar"

Other Stuff:

Bob Marley - "Get Up, Stand Up," "One Love," "No Woman, No Cry" .... woulda been kinda nice to play some Marley for the Heat series, for Brian Grant [that's Bob on his shoulder, isn't it?]

Beck - "Loser" .... that song is hilarious. :D

The Bootsy Collins snippet from the old commercials with Jermaine in them.... "Keep That Funk Alive" :D .... If anybody remembers that one.

Bouncing Souls: "Ole!" It's a spiced-up rendition of the classic soccer chant. I'm pretty sure it'd get a few people chanting, just for fun.

Me First and the Gimme Gimmes.... these guys do punk rock covers of well-known older songs. Some very, very cool stuff. Gotta check out their renditions of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and "I Believe I Can Fly"

.... Well, that's more than enough for now.

This is a cool thread btw. One of my favorite subjects other than the Pacers is music... how nice to combine the two! I'm a classic rock/hairband guy, so most of the suggestions above I like. I do like Sublime, Nirvana and some of the other bands listed. Here are some other thoughts.

Sabbath- You can't go wrong with Iron Man. I still think this would be great to associate with one of the players... Artest or Foster... one of those two guys. Several folks have already mentioned this one, so I'd get it if you don't have it. Paranoid is also a good tune with a good beat.

Ozzy- I agree on Crazy Train.

Aerosmith- "Same Old Song and Dance", "Sweet Emotion", "The Other Side"

Doors- "Roadhouse Blues"

Alice Cooper- "No More Mister Nice Guy" Great song w/ good playoff implications.

Eminem- "Lose Yourself" I dislike most rap, but this is a crossover tune, and it also has good meaning to it.

Judas Priest- "You've Got Another Thing Coming, Breakin' the Law, Livin' After Midnight."

Scorpions- "The Zoo", Rock You like a Hurricane

Quiet Riot- Metal Health or *** on Feel the Noise. I'm serious... these would be fun to blow the dust off of.

AC/DC- Thunderstruck, You Shook Me, Back in Black, Dirty Deeds. High Voltage is one of my favorite Albums. Long Way to the Top has some playoff Meaning and has become re-disovered by folks who watched School of Rock. Live Wire is my personal favorite, but that was my "get psyched up" song from high school wrestling. Nobody else probably even knows what it is. :cool:

Alice in Chains- Man in the Box. Classic.

Van Halen- Unchained.

Tom Petty- Won't Back Down, Running Down a Dream.

Mellencamp- Jack and Diane, I Need a Lover (If you can shorten the Intro), Play Guitar.

Great White- Once Bitten.

Ramones- Anything by the Ramones is good Arena Rock. A personal fave is Mama's Boy.

Iron Maiden- Run to the Hills.

The Swingin' Medallions- Double Shot of My Baby's Love

Neal Diamond- Sweet Caroline

Barry Mannilow- Copacabana (2nd favorite song at my college parties behind YMCA)

Molly Hatchet- "Flirtin With Disaster" Again... great meaning.

Krokus- "Eat the Rich"

Sweet- Ballroom Blitz or Fox on the Run

Kiss- Shout it out Loud, Rock and Roll All Night.

Sammy Hagar- 3 Lock Box, Heavy Metal.

Guns N Roses- Jungle and Paradise City.

Queen- Fat Bottomed Girls.

Stevie Ray- Pride and Joy.

Pink Floyd- Run Like Hell.

Dion- Runaround Sue

Simon and Garfunkel- Cecelia

Kenny Rogers- The Gambler. I bet that would be great!



Ok... Ok... I'll shut up already!

Maybe it's me but I haven't ever been to a NBA or Sporting Event where they played alot of Rock or Hard Rock for that matter ..maybe there is a reason :laugh:

I am not trying to be a buttwipe but the music needs to inspire the players as well as the fans , remember were a young team and I am not saying some havent heard of any of the tunes mentioned .

Btw I like all types of music so it's not because I don't like certains songs mentioned , heck even own most all the songs that have been requested but some stuff just ain't good for games.

Than's just my :twocents: and I am sorry if I offended or angered anyone with my comments.

Dude, don't worry. I thought the same thing at first that's why I didn't lay down a lot of ideas when he first came on here. But then I went to the next game & he laid down classic old school rock (Jump, Rock you like a Hurricane, etc.) & he said he thought the crowd reacted to it. So were just trying to spread the love & pass out the old rock stuff. :)

I'm attempting to keep a balance Conseco between the fans and the players. I'll probably use the ideas from this post in 2 or 3 timeouts each game, like I did the classic rock mega-mix. Nothing motivates the players late in the game more than a loud *** crowd, and if rock gets the crowd up then rock it is. I'm going to keep playing the music for the players like I have been, but maybe diversify the music at times throughout the game. Sound good?

I think whatever songs that are played for the warmups should be hand picked by the players. This is where they are getting primed and psyched up. Music can be a big part of getting a person in that mindset.

However once the ball is thrown up... I can't imagine they pay attention to much of anything. When I played football and wrestled I never remember hearing anything. I never heard a cheer, never heard the announcer... I was just in a zone.

The music by and large is for the fans. And when I have been to Conseco, which granted has not been a ton of times, I've seen them have the crowd vote to hear certain tunes. Hard rock tunes have won every single applause contest I've seen.

I also think there is probably some diversity for music on the team. I can see Foster listening to Toby Keith before DMX, but you never know.

I primarily listed hard rock b/c I like it, but you need to throw a bone to the older fans as well, which is why I mentioned some of the Oldies tunes. If this is Chauncey, I also know you like Wycleaf Jean... even he did a cover of Kenny Roger's the Gambler. Not a good cover IMO... but a cover nonetheless!

Sauce... Good call on Big Daddy Kane. Another rap song that I like and it also has good meaning. "I work... Baby!"

Kiss - Detriot Rock City

Great song, but let's avoid this one during the Piston series.

:cool:

Okay, I'm going to put my 'mid-thirties caucasion-ness' on full display here.

Back in the mid-to-late-90s, at MSA, the same rap song was always played on the PA system when the Pacers would run out of the locker room before the game.

I thought it was a boxing tribute. And I thought the song name was "The Main Event" or "Get in the Ring" - but not the lousy Guns-and-Squirrels song by that name. :rolleyes:

One of the few rap songs I like (although I do really like Cypress Hill's Rock Superstar but that's another story) - but I have no idea what its called or who the performer was.

Does my :censor: -y explanation ring a bell? Anyone?
