Mariano Rivera trots onto the field with Metallica's "Enter Sandman" blaring over the Yankee Stadium speakers. It has become something of a trademark entrance for baseball's most famous closer.
Today is opening day for the Major League Baseball season, and we asked players from the Storm Chasers and Creighton University about the music that plays before they take the field.
Check out their responses, then tell us in the comments section below which walk-up music you would choose.
Jake Peter, Sophomore, 2B/RH
Song choice: "Heads will Roll" by Supa! Featuring the Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Why chosen: "I wanted a song that would pump me and get my blood flowing up as I go to the plate."
Mike Gerber, Junior, OF
Song choice: "Levels" by Avicii
Why chosen: "I don't really hear the music on the field, but I wanted something that gets the crowd going."
Alex Staehely, Senior, SS
Song choice: "Attention Span" by Rebelution
Why chosen: "While playing in Alaska this summer, a lot of teammates from California played this song. As I go to the plate I prefer to be relaxed and this song helps me do that."

We asked World-Herald readers for their favorites.
Jim Goodwin likes the St. Louis Cardinals' Yadier Molina's song -- "Sigan Bailando" by Wisin y Yandel
Here's reader Michael Bell's cubicle intro music, some relaxing Pantera:
Professional announcer and voice talent Sugar Ray Quinn (who hears a lot of athlete intro music while announcing sporting events in Omaha and around the nation) says his own walk-up music is: "Pour Some Sugar On Me" by Def Lepard. ":Great tunes and awesome rock from the 80's that can get a crowd going!"
World-Herald music man Kevin Coffey's muses
Tim Lincecum has changed both is pitching warm-up music and his batter's box walk-up music a few different times, but he usually comes back with "Electric Feel" by MGMT for a long time. It's not rap or metal to get him pumped up, but a smoother, funkier song that gets him in a groove.
To Coffey, that's a much more interesting choice than "Kashmir" by Led Zeppelin (used by Chase Utley) ...
... or "Crazy Train" by Ozzy Osbourne (used by Larry "Chipper" Jones).
