Pistons Player Theme Songs

© Mike Payne

This thought was born out of what happens during MLB games, when someone steps up to the plate. It seems like every MLB batter has their own theme song, and many pitchers have their own theme song, especially bullpen players, which get played when they step out of the bullpen and head to the mound.

So what would the theme song be for each Piston, if the decision was entirely yours?

My choices were done with no emphasis on what the player actually likes and uses in his own player.

On a rough draft, I had this list extended to many more Pistons of the past, but where's the fun in TL;DR?

The type of song in some cases may not even be something I actually play. It may be a convenient thematic piece ... not something I actually put in my own music player.

Feel free to suggest your own theme songs, since everyone is different, has different music tastes, and therefore would likely project something completely different.

Without further ado, here's my list for each player (among current and recent) with a link to the current song that I'd cue for them:

  1. Andre Drummond - Dr. Dre - Forgot About Dre
  2. Greg Monroe - James Brown - Get on the Good Foot, Pt. 1

  7. Jonas Jerebko - ABBA - Super Trouper
  8. Brandon Knight - DJ Khaled - I'm on One
