It’s almost football season which means it is almost time to tailgate! Food, friends, and beer are always important. And just as equally is music.
Here at WRNL, we have compiled a list of some songs you need to add to your playlist at your next tailgate party this football season. We have received some outstanding suggestions on Twitter from our followers. And our writers have even given some of their hot tailgate songs that get them in the zone. Thanks to all! You all are pretty amazing! We have included these suggestions below in no particular order. But you know who you are.
We Cyclones are a nostalgic species and like to keep the traditions (ex. Campaniling and natural turf), but we also like to try new things (ex. Black Jerseys and non-light beer). We like it all here. Rock, country, EDM, polka, hick hop, hairbands... we’re into just about anything!
So, let us know what makes you TAILGATE HARD! If you have that one song that just reminds you of Cyclone football, comment below. Elaborate if you wish to. It’s the internet, be you.
Remember: No judgement here. Let us know what makes you think Cyclone Tailgate with your favorite song(s). Whether your tailgate is in G7, B6, the student lots, your deck or in a van down by the river; let us take you away to a pleasant mindset of the best time of year!
Go CYCLONES!!! Are you ready for some football?!?!?
Without further adieu, here is the official 2018 WRNL Tailgate Playlist, as created by YOU, Cyclone fans!
