When is comes to stadium music, there are “the classics” like Queen’s “We Will Rock You” and there are more modern hits from artists like Eminem and the Black Eyed Peas. Most NFL teams tend to mix up their playlists with a combination of classics and current high-energy Billboard singles. There are also some teams that have specific theme songs–including both official fight songs and unofficial music.
