Wasn't that Daniel Murphy's actual song?

Wasn't he one of the crew along with Wieters that had in-your-face Christian stuff as their songs?

Wieters definitely did. Murphy did for other songs, but I’m almost positive the one played before Murphy’s first AB was always “shipping up to Boston”

Their songs were the only ones my in-laws like when they came to the park. Lol.

That sounds right.  I remember thanking Jesus in advance for the GIDP multiple times Wieters came up.  What a freaking bum.

There was a lot of crappy dick rock (eg, Creed, Nickelback) walk-up music being played those first couple of seasons at RFK.

Between Nickelback, Glass Tiger and Men Without Hats, Canadians should probably roll out the seppuku mats...

Rush, Triumph, and the Barenaked Ladies help offset that a bit.

Murphy had multiple songs. As far as I recall, only one was a Jesus song, and it played only occasionally. Murphy was never "in your face".  Don't know about Wieters.

The song that I most associate with the Nats is "Join, or Die." I was really bummed when they pulled it from the start of the games.

They used Thunderstruck before that IIRC, but yeah, that is a good pick for the most Nats-specific song ever. Just hearing that makes me miss the park more than ever.

They definitely used Thunderstruck in conjunction with it. I just can't remember which they played first. I always associated Join, or Die with the 'get back to your seat, it's game time,' and I remember Thunderstuck when already seated, so I -think- they played it after Join, or Die and the video that went with it. Either way, when they quit opening the games that way, my attendance started to crater. Before, you could only get that at the park. It didn't make the broadcast and you couldn't experience it if you weren't there.

Now, nothing special happens. There's not the same push to be at the park in an age where I can DVR the game and fast forward through commercials and 20s of dead time while batters adjust their gloves and Zimmerman fixes his cup. I don't know -why- his cup has issues every single time he raises his arms and wiggles his wrists, but it clearly does.
