Seahawks vs Chicago Bears: Pregame Playlist

Posted Aug 21, 2014

Find out which songs Seahawks players are listening to prior to their Friday night preseason matchup with the Chicago Bears at CenturyLink Field.

Seahawks tight end Zach Miller has made it a point to listen to one specific song before he hits the football field for gameday.

In fact, he's been listening to this particular track since his playing days at Phoenix's Desert Vista High School. He carried the same practice through three seasons with the Sun Devils (2004-06) at Arizona State University and now enters his eighth year in the NFL swearing by the same anthem.

"Before every game since high school I've always listened to AC/DC, Thunderstruck," Miller said from his locker at Renton's Virginia Mason Athletic Center this week.

Miller's pregame song choice would have been a fitting addition to our pregame playlist from the preseason's first week against the Broncos in Denver, where play was suspended for 47 minutes due to severe lightning strikes around the stadium. Thunderstruck would have rounded out last week's pregame playlist nicely as well, with the Seahawks hosting a game against the San Diego Chargers, who boast a lightning bolt as their logo.

But what's done is done. There's no going back now. We're all about what's next, which in this case happens to be the Chicago Bears in the second consecutive preseason game at CenturyLink Field.

Without further ado, check out the team's "Pregame Playlist" for their exhibition matchup with the Bears. My personal favorite comes from running back Robert Turbin, whose musical taste in Lil Jon's Knockin Heads Off coincides nicely with what Turbin's stiff arm nearly did to Chargers strong safety Marcus Gilchrist at the tail-end of this 47-yard burst last week.

And as promised each week, we'll also feature a “Bonus Track” from a member of the Seahawks Digital Media team. This week's track, or in this case - tracks (plural) - come from Digital Media Reporter Clare Farnsworth. Here's what he had to say about his three choices:

"When you're as old as I am, it can take more than one song to get me pumping on game day. So let's start with Break On Through by The Doors, move on to It's All Over Now by The Rolling Stones, and finish it off with Funky On My Back by Lydia Pense and Cold Blood -- the live version. Now, I'm ready for some football."
