footballdrinkinggame

It’s NFL playoff season, which means it’s time for you football fans to stop washing your lucky jerseys and socks, no matter how stiff or smelly they become. You don’t want to jinx your team now, do you?

To make these Sunday smackdowns even more entertaining, we’ve created these fun Football Drinking Games, which include live-action challenges along with prompts for your favorite team pump-up songs. Even non-football fans can enjoy the shenanigans with the dares below.

At this writing, there are still four teams left before Super Bowl Sunday on Feb. 1, 2015, so we’ve come up with categories for each championship contender: The Green Bay Packers vs. The Seahawks and the Indianapolis Colts vs. the New England Patriots. But there are plenty of Super Bowl-themed tilt-and-gulps too.

So whether you’re cheering in the stands or lazing in your favorite recliner, hoist the (nonalcoholic or, ahem, other) beverage of your choice whenever these events take place …

15 Great Baseball Walkup Songs

Baseballsongs

The crack of the bat, the scent of hot buttered popcorn, and, hey, is that Journey’s Steve Perry trying to get a stadium sing-along started? (He’s a crazy Giants fan.) This week, we’re celebrating that grand old American game, baseball.

Besides the home runs and stolen bases, one of the great things about modern baseball are the heart-pounding snippets of music blasted in-between plays. Whether it’s metal, country, hip-hop, or a player’s wife’s single (yes, we’re talking to you, Ben Zobrist), today’s pro-baseball players get to show off their individuality by choosing the walkup songs played aloud as they get up to bat or stroll onto the pitcher’s mound.

So whether you’re getting ready to watch the World Series with your bros, or just the weekly game with your kids, here are 15 great baseball walkup songs to get you in that relaxed, beer-sipping, and peanut-crunching mood.

Hey Jack, it’s a fact, the show’s back in town. And, by show, we mean America’s favorite pro sport, football! So break out your favorite jerseys and beer koozies, and get ready to drop that bass, because we’re going to help you make a killer football song playlist.

But first, it helps to know what the real grid-iron gangstas are listening to. Billboard.com recently polled several pro-football players about which songs made their pre-game football playlists, and the answers are pretty surprising.

Sure, there was a lot of T.I., Drake, Wiz Khalifa, and Young Jeezy, but there was also Sum 41, Smash Mouth, and Everclear (from Minnesota Viking linebacker Audie Cole); some Whitney Houston and Sade (Really, Dallas Cowboy Justin Durant?); and a little Kaskade and Tiesto (Geoff Schwartz of The New York Giants).

But, seriously, football fans, even though hip-hop has been quickly eclipsing rock at many parking lot parties, Ozzy Osbourne, AC/DC and Florida Georgia Line are still holding their own. And some of the hottest rappers, like Eminem, are combining the two for even more basspower.

So, here are some of the best, classic, tailgate-crashing, stadium-rocking, football pump-up songs we could find, along with some new jams and some feel-good country anthems for the Boys of Fall.

Got MyMusicCloud? By importing any of these into your music collection, or buying them from our Music Store (starting at 19 cents), you can flag these to a portable Football Playlist in no time.

First, log in to your account from a computer or tablet, select the PLAYLISTS tab at top, and click “Create New Playlist.” Once you name it, open any track and hit the blue triangle that appears at the bottom right. Select “Add to Playlist” and highlight the list you want. Just like that, you’ll have the honeys dancing in their seats at the pre-game party too.

  1. Juelz Santana – The Second Coming
  2. The Rolling Stones – Sympathy for the Devil
  3. Kongos – Come with Me Now
  4. Eminem – Berzerk

Viral Video Alert: Watch Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull’s World Cup Bloopers

Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull nearly got stuck below stage Thursday night while performing live before millions at the 2014 FIFA World Cup opening ceremonies in Sao Paolo, Brazil, and even if you don’t know a goal from a guava pastelito, we think you’ll get a *kick* out of the video.

While singing the soccer tournament’s theme, “We Are One (Ole Ola),” the superstar duo was supposed to emerge from below stage on a motorized platform. But the electric riser they were standing on had other plans – or maybe it was just grooving to the beat. Halfway up it stopped, reversed, started to descend and then froze, stranding Jennifer and Pitbull about mid-stage inside the set, which resembled a giant unpeeled orange.

Being the pros they are, they recovered, and Jennifer and Brazilian pop star Claudia Leitte (dressed in blue) awkwardly jumped around in spike heels while Pitbull rapped, wearing what appeared to be his grandfather’s pants. But the night’s goofups weren’t over.

Throughout “We Are One,” the Latin sensations encountered sound and microphone problems. Did they handle the situation with grace, or did these mega-stars lose face? Watch the video below and tell us.

U2 Fans: Watch Super Bowl Sunday for a Bono Surprise

U2 fans are about to get a sweet taste of Bono-Rock Sunday as the band premieres a brand-new song, “Invisible,” during the Super Bowl’s Seahawks vs. Broncos game on the Fox network. But you’ll have to watch carefully, because Bono and the guys aren’t performing during halftime. (That honor goes to Bruno Mars.)

Instead, U2’s new song will debut during a commercial for Bono’s charity (RED) and Bank of America that will air sometime during the 4-hour showdown. For up to 24 hours later, “Invisible” will also be available as a limited-edition *free* download on iTunes.

This is the first glimpse of the band’s upcoming album in nearly three years. The worldwide supergroup has been teasing fans by continually postponing the release of their first full album since 2009. Originally slated for 2011, it was pushed back after the band reportedly still hadn’t found what it was looking for with then-producer RedOne.

Of course, then Bono took on the award-winning song “Ordinary Love,” which he wrote and recorded for the Nelson Mandela biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

“It’s just a call you can’t say no to,” Bono explained to a reporter last fall. “There’s a bit of pressure for us to finish [the U2 album] — and then this [Mandela request] arrived.”

Although not exactly a stadium rocker, the reverent “Ordinary Love” has proved to be a solid investment for the band. It won a Golden Globe for Best Original Song earlier this month, and is up for the same award at March’s Academy Awards.

So what can fans expect from the hotly awaited U2 album? It’s reportedly being produced by Danger Mouse for a *rumored* April 2014 release. In a 2013 radio interview, Bono insisted they’re not “faffing around” this time, promising the new music is “very different, [a] very fresh sound and some beautiful songs, big hooks.”

Meanwhile, the band is moving in their usual mysterious ways. They’ve only played top-secret private performances, like actor Sean Penn’s third annual Help Haiti benefit on Jan. 11 in Beverly Hills, Calif. There, Bono sang the hits “I Will Follow,” “Desire,” and “Vertigo” as well as an acoustic duet with Haitian singer Anaelle Jean-Pierre. Watch them tear it up in the video below.
