John Axford will give Tribe fans the power to pick his entrance music

John Axford

Tribe reliever John Axford will have Tribe fans select his entrance music for the 2014 season.

John Axford is a man of many mustaches, with flawless Oscar selections and an appreciation for a democratic entrance music selection process .

Axford will have Tribe fans select his walk out music for the 2014 season.

Now, on the surface this may seem like a simple decision. But for many players — especially a new addition to the club — this is an important commitment. Entrance music sends a message to the fans and the opposition. The perfect jam gets a pitcher jacked up and primed for the mound.

After careful consideration, Axford chose the following anthology for voting deliberation:

1. Refused – New Noise
2. The Reason – Don’t Fail Me
3. Rage Against The Machine – Bulls On Parade
4. Omen – The Axeman
5. Beastie Boys – Sabotage
6. Rush – Working Man
7. Audioslave – Cochise
8. Korn – Blind
9. Ennio Morricone – The Good, The Bad, The Ugly
10. Ennio Morricone – Silhouette of Doom
11. Foo Fighters – Bridge Burning
12. George McCrae – Rock Your Baby

In 2013, the reliever had Brewers fans select “New Noise” by Refused as his walk out music. Now it is time for Tribe fans to step up to the plate.

Make your voice heard! Voting will be round by round and the highest vote getters will move on! So vote early and often for your favorite songs here.

And of course, give @JohnAxford a follow on Twitter. You won’t regret it.

Bulls on a Parade

Profess your Cleveland Pride! Vote Rush!! (For those unaware, it was WMMS who first ‘broke’ Rush.)

I’m going with Beastie Boys but Metallica’s Enter Sandman would get my vote if it were a choice

Still not sure why no Indians relief pitcher has ever walked out to “Wild Thing”. Afford would be loved by Tribe fans if he did this!

Sabatoge from the Beatie Boys! That’s what a killer bullpen is all about Right? Go Tribe!!!!

link to vote doesn’t work. Also, Refused or Beastie Boys please. The rest of that list… ouch. Not on the list vote “Gouge Away” Pixies

Sabotage – beastie boys

These songs are horrible. You cannot have “fail” or “Sabotage” in the title of a closer’s song. That is also why AC/DC’s TNT is a bad choice, because even though it has a good sound when the lyrics “watch me explode” come on, it isn’t a good visual for a closer.

Sabotage or Bulls on Parade

9. Ennio Morricone – The Good, The Bad, The Ugly


Beastie Boys!!!!

Rush is the most annoying band ever.

Sabotage. Best song on the list and that’s what the Axeman is going to do this year. Sabotage any chance at coming back. Thanks for coming here man. Tito’s a good guy to play for and the fans are gonna love ya dude.
