Any recommendations for a current playlist, or songs to include in a playlist for a VRC?
- Obviously no songs with explicit content.
- Obviously no songs that includes the phrase "baby shark".
- Not Christmas themed.
Aw you're no fun :)

Lindsey Sterling does a variety of stuff, and it's not obnoxious
Or you could be safe and do symphony orchestras/classical stuff, but that's probably boring
If you're feeling adventurous, you can look up "slav hardbass instrumental", which is super fast and kind of like electro europop. Might make for good songs while matches are going, but a lot of the non-instrumental ones are probably inappropriate.
I think @[TVA]Connor made a playlist for Worlds last year (and/or previous years).
Some songs I've heard at a lot of events:
Europe - "The Final Countdown"
Survivor - "Eye of the Tiger"
Queen - "We Are the Champions"
And at least 1-2 times:
Queen - "We Will Rock You"
Queen ft. David Bowie - "Under Pressure"
Michael Jackson - "Beat It"
Aerosmith - "Dream On"
Alesso ft. Tove Lo - "Heroes"
I remember one tournament that played a lot of Beatles music. (It autocorrected to "Beagles" at first.)
Imagine Dragons would be a good choice, too, especially since I've heard they're used in a lot of robot reveals.
Their song "Ready, Aim, Fire" would be especially good for this year. (One of my team's students introduced me to it last year.)
[Edited to add more songs]
Ive made a playlist with 500+ songs in it for reveals. If youd like you can nip pick some songs out of it and make your own playlist for the tournament :D
on the topic of music, our announcer had a fun game at Waipahu. "Merit games" where members of different teams would name the song and artist as it started playing for "Merit Points" which would allow them to do trivia in between elim matches for fun. It was very entertaining, and would mix up the monotony of
robot combat matches
@meepmeepme as far as song reccomendations go I second the reccomendation of Lindsey Sterling. Her music is a mix of violin and electronic, creating just a wonderful mix.
I like Lindsey Stirling. Her Carol of the Bells is epic. Just depends on the atmosphere you're trying to set.
@NightsRosario tbh, you could just sample all the songs from reveals you watched over the years
This is what TVAConnor has compiled above, and it's worth taking a look at for ideas. I would try to get a variety of artists, but it's usually a good idea to keep the ambiance the same.
