I can’t say that enough. Our motley crew of bearded warriors battled their way from worst to first in a season that won’t be forgotten by the people of Boston or throughout all of Red Sox Nation. Here is the perfect playlist to keep that emotional high and to tell the story of the 2013 World Series Champions, the Boston Red Sox.
- Started From The Bottom – Drake
The theme song for the Sox this season. The lyrics are literally “started from the bottom, now my whole team here.” Grammar aside, lyrics couldn’t be any more perfect for this team.
- For Boston – Dropkick Murphys
The Red Sox have said time and time again that this World Series was for us, for Boston.
- Three Little Birds – Bob Marley
Don’t worry about a thing, ’cause every little thing gonna be all right. When Shane Victorino comes up to bat all of Fenway Park joins in singing those words, and when Victorino hit that grand slam in the ALCS the song reached a whole new level in the hearts of Sox fans.
- X Gon’ Give It To Ya – DMX
Boston’s favorite X-Man, rookie Xander Bogaerts gave it all throughout the postseason. The youngest playoff starter in Red Sox history has left quite a mark in Boston and fans can’t wait to see the kind of career he is going to have.
- Sweet Caroline – Neil Diamond
A Fenway Park classic. You haven’t lived until you’ve yelled “SO GOOD! SO GOOD!” in the middle of the 8th inning with 37,399 other fans in America’s most beloved ballpark.
- Dirty Water – The Standells
Another classic Bostonian anthem. There are few things better in life than hearing this song played in Fenway Park after a Red Sox win.
- Shipping Up To Boston – Dropkick Murphys
If this song doesn’t get you pumped then all hope is lost.
- Tessie – Dropkick Murphys
The Dropkick Murphys send the perfect message from the fans to the team: “Don’t blame us if we ever doubt you, you know we couldn’t live without you. Red Sox, you are the only only only.”
- What Do The Sox Say – Fly Morning Rush
This is nothing short of amazing. Ylvis pondered what does the fox say, but this finally answers what the Sox say.
- This Beard Came Here To Party – Tim Montana and The Shrednecks ft. Billy F. Gibbons
Country artist Tim Montana turned his own catch phrase and inside joke “this beard came here to party” into a song which became another anthem for the 2013 Red Sox. While not originally written for the Sox, the song is perfect for this season.
