For most college kids, football season is one of the best times of their lives, and a key aspect to that is tailgating. The music options for the tailgate are what will set the tone for the rest of the day and the game. Here are the top 10 songs that all college kids should know to have the time of their lives while tailgating!
“Pursuit of Happiness”
The process of getting ready for gameday takes a lot. “Pursuit of Happiness” by Kid Cudi is the perfect song to get you in the mood for a full day of partying. This song is not too wild but will still set the tone for you and your friends while picking your outfits, putting on your makeup, and making plans with your friends. Most importantly, it is a great pregame song to get you hyped up for your walk to the tailgates.
Now that you and your friends are ready and look fabulous, it’s time to head over to tailgates. No matter if you’re walking or ubering, you need to keep the good times rolling. A song that is easy to listen to and sing along with for your long trek is “Mr. Brightside” by The Killers.
Once you’ve made it to the tailgate, the party has officially started! Who wouldn’t want their UFC-style walk-in song to be “Wipe Me Down” by Boosie Badazz? If you want your football team to bring their A-game, you need to bring yours and set the stage.
“Thunderstruck” by AC/DC is not only a great song but gives everyone a little activity to participate in. After this, look up the Thunderstruck drinking game and grab some white claws; you’ll be set for the day.
During the day, you need at least one song for the girls. Singing “Crazy Bitch” by Buckcherry at the top of your lungs to all of your friends will revive you. Just remember to party like you’re at a Buckcherry concert. #GirlsOnGameday
“Doses and Mimosas”
I have an important question, have you ever been to a party where “Doses and Mimosas” by Cherub was played and had a bad time? I think not. If you have a few bottles of champagne, now’s the time to bring them out.
“Dixieland Delight” by Alabama is a classic, and I don’t think it will ever go out of style. Many college campuses have different versions of the song that they play and will get you in the mood to watch the game. This is a prime song to play on your walk from the tailgate to the game. #It’sGameTime
“Swag Surfin’” by Fast Life Yungstaz is the number 1 song to play after your team won a football game. This song embodies a winner. Give it a listen on the way to the bars for a victory party.
“I Love College”
It’s the next morning after the game, and your headache is probably UNREAL, but a headache cannot and will not come in the way of Sunday brunch plans. It will get you prepared for your morning of bloody marys and bottomless mimosas. You can relax and unwind, laughing with your friends about what happened yesterday listening to “I Love College by Asher Roth.
Whatever music you end up listening to, remember to have the time of your life. Four years pass fast, and the memories you make in college you will cherish for the rest of your life!
