Seahawks vs San Diego Chargers: Pregame Playlist

Posted Aug 14, 2014

Find out which songs Seahawks players are listening to prior to their first home game of 2014 against the San Diego Chargers.

If you attended a game at CenturyLink Field a season ago, you likely experienced some on-field entertainment during the game's commercial breaks.

That's the time when rapper Rick Ross' voice would boom over the stadium's loudspeakers. A looping chorus of "These haters can't hold me back!" from Ross' hit track Hold Me Back would send the Seahawks defense into dance, with players bouncing up and down to the beat, waving their arms and hands to rile the team's 12th Man fans into a frenzy.

That's why it came as no surprise when Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril offered little hesitation when asked to choose one song that helps pump him up before a big game.

"Hold Me Back, Rick Ross," Avril assured from his locker at Renton's Virginia Mason Athletic Center this week.

With Seattle set to host their first home game of 2014 on Friday night against the San Diego Chargers, we asked six more Seahawks on top of Avril to give us one or two songs that get them going on gameday.

Like last week's pregame playlist from the team's preseason opener against the Denver Broncos, this week's list contains another heavy dose of hip-hop, with a small share of classic and hardcore rock sprinkled in.

Below, check out the team's "Pregame Playlist" for their exhibition matchup with the Chargers.
