Another sold out practice, another hot day for Seahawks Training Camp Day 2 presented by Bing.
Incorporating music into everyday activities at Renton's Virginia Mason Athletic Center has become a significant part of how the Seahawks operate.
It's been head coach Pete Carroll's preference to turn up the tunes on the practice field, in the meeting rooms, and in his office, and of course, the players aren't shy about bumping their favorite beats in the locker room, either.
"It's part of the vibe of this place," Carroll said earlier this year. "It's very positive and it's always received really well. It's part of the fabric and the culture here."
Carroll believes blasting music during workouts gives his players an edge when it comes to the regular season, when games are played in front of thousands of roaring fans and when the atmosphere lends itself to plenty of distractions.
"The ability to focus is to be immersed in what you're doing regardless of what's going on around you," Carroll said. "I think it's part of playing with the beat and the vibe at practice in that there's a beat and a vibe that takes place at the stadium, too. I want [the players] to feel comfortable."
So what type of music makes the players feel comfortable? During training camp, when practices are open to the public, it's a steady mix of hip-hop/rap, R&B/soul, country, reggae, and rock, and those genres typically carry over into the regular season, too.
Here's 12 songs we overheard on the second day of Seahawks training camp. We'll do our best to keep you in the loop on which tracks are being played by our training camp DJ, DV One, as camp continues.
