Every Chiefs player has his own personality or his own story that can be shared with others through a lot of different outlets. Music is a fun way to express ourselves and Chiefs players would have a lot of fun with their walk-out songs.

Some of these songs hit a player’s personality well. From Travis Kelce running out to “Party Rock” and Eric Berry rocking out to “Humble”, songs can be a great way to express someone’s uniqueness that fans don’t always get to see during a game.

Other songs might represent what a player does on the field. A good example of this was Demetrius Harris’ song, which was about how often he dropped passes last season. Another one was Derrick Johnson jamming to “Tubthumping”, which mainly just says “I get knocked down, but I get up again” over and over again. That’s what DJ does, man.

I had fun thinking up these song selections and hope all of you enjoyed reading them. While the Chiefs don’t implement the individual walk-out songs (and they likely won’t, as it’d take too much time), it’d be a fun way for the players to express themselves and showcase their personality to the fans and to the rest of the league.

As for what team song the 2017 Chiefs could use, I came up with a few. With this team winning the AFC West last year (not to mention sweeping the division) and being Super Bowl contenders once again, Montell Jordan’s “This is How We Do it” would fit nicely with this team. This is my go-to song to dance to at bars and weddings in case any of you care (well, this and “Backstreet’s Back”).

If we wanted to go with a county song (since I did not include a single one for any of the players), “Ready, Set, Roll” by Chase Rice could also fit well. This Chiefs team is always prepared and looks ready to grind on a week to week basis.

Then, of course, we could go with the cliché pump-up songs like “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor or “Welcome to the Jungle” by Guns’n’Roses. Those are the standard “team songs” though. Everyone knows those tunes.

If we wanted to go down the mean route, the offense last year in certain games could have had “Cold as Ice” by Foreigner as their theme song. I shouldn’t have to explain that one. The defense from last season could have “Boom” by P.O.D. as their main song, as they were always coming through in clutch moments.

So, Chiefs Kingdom, what walk-out songs would you pick for the Chiefs players?
