Comparing walk-up songs of Red Sox and Cardinals

While we're in the middle of the World Series, hanging on every pitch and swing of the bat from our sporting heroes, it's important not to lose sight of the fact that superstar athletes are just like you and me: They've got really questionable taste in music. And, like the rest of the country, they're inexplicably obsessed with mediocre country and hip-hop. Regardless of who wins the series itself, we thought we'd take a look at how the typical lineups of the Red Sox and the Cardinals stack up in an even more important metric: Who has the best walk-up songs?

WARNING: Some of these songs have coarse language. Though the parts played at the ballpark might not have bad words, the songs do. Listen at your own risk.
