Worlds community music playlist

Hey guys,
This topic came up in discussion last night while watching some of the NZ matches, and I thought it was worth posting.
Some of us felt that the music selection at Worlds last year could have been a tad bit better. We were wondering if there is any chance that we, as the VexForum community, could put together our ideal playlist for Worlds.

I thought it was worth a shot, so here goes my playlist requests:
New Divide - Linkin Park
Savior - Rise Against
Anna Molly - Incubus
Tongue Tied - Grouplove
Helena Beat - Foster the People
First of the Year - Skrillex
Incubus - Pardon Me

There’s the start of my list. If you guys have anything you want to hear at Worlds, toss it up here, maybe we can convince them to add a few songs. Please keep the songs clean (no stepping on anyone’s toes).

If we can’t get these played for the whole tourney, I’ll try to at least get a few pumping at my team’s table.

Have fun!

Blow Me Away- Breaking Benjamin

That is all I got. I won’t be at Worlds, but I at least thought I would put my 2 cents in :smiley:

Good luck all!

I love both. I just realized that this is going to be a great way for me to discover some new music. :wink:

Good luck at Nationals!


Good luck at Worlds :smiley:

I dont have any specific songs but here are some artists: T-Pain, Lil Wayne, Nickelback, Wiz Khalifa, LMFAO, and David Guetta.

Axel F - Crazy Frog (techno-type… no vocals)
Mr. Roboto - Styx (come on… it’s a robot comp!)
MacGyver theme (sort-of relates to robots)
Final Countdown - Europe (for finals)


You can also add Usher, Train, Coldplay, Flo Rida, Drake, Kanye West, Maroon 5 and Jay-Z

Those are good songs.

I love MacGyver’s. I kind of want to go watch one right now :smiley:
Murdock NEVER dies on this TV show. It’s really kind of funny :smiley:

Me personally on the first day they should play in the morning
Good Morning- Mandisa (feat. Toby MAC)

Never Gonna Give You Up-Rick Astley

I probably won’t catch most of the music, but video games and anime actually provide some pretty good high-energy tournament music, including:

Burning Heat (Theme from Gradius II)
Hyrule theme, and other Zelda music
Amazing Nurse Nanako theme

Classic, though is “The System is Down” from Homestar Runner. Get the unabridged version with dancing robots.

Adding one more to the growing list:
I’m Just a Kid - Simple Plan

Lol @The System is Down and Rick Astley!
(For those that don’t know, here’s the System is down link:
I’d say Muse - Uprising (we consider this our team song :slight_smile: )

Speaking of video game music… Theres always this site!

Theme songs from hundreds of games.

I know I’m gonna get yelled at for this… but TAYLOR SWIFT! (I’m quite an obsessed fan)

Imo rap and hip hop is horrible for competitions, it just doesn’t work for robotics competitions (and I just don’t like it :p). I don’t like techno/dubstep either, but I must say it is good for building hype and energy at competitions. I don’t really mind what the music is though, as long as there is a decent variety. There have been some awesome suggestions so far though :D.

From that webpage: Still Alive - Portal

Epic yes for competitions!!!

I’d say Muse - Uprising (we consider this our team song :slight_smile: )

That’s the short version. The full version, with robots, is [here, although I don’t care for the video. They also added a reprise at the end; the original ended with Strongbad muttering to himself, somewhere around the 2:00 mark.

Many moons ago, my son actually purchased the original, which has now been permanently burned into my organic memory.](“”)

No worries, you aren’t alone. I like her too :slight_smile: But it really wouldn’t work well with Karthik…

I’ve already made a few discs of all my favorite songs. Do you think they would play them if I brought them?

I think some good artists/bands are:
The Fray
Five for Fighting
Maroon 5
Sum 41
The All-American Rejects
A few Eminem songs
Plain White T’s
The Calling
Green Day
30 Seconds to Mars
Bon Jovi
Bruno mars
Celine Dion
Katy Perry
The Killers
One Republic
Taio Cruz
We the Kings

Some individual songs
YMCA - Village People
Dancing Queen - ABBA
How Far We’ve Come - Matchbox 20
2012 - Jay Sean
All Star - Smash Mouth
Perfect - Hedley
Pictures of You - The Last Goodnight
Eye of the Tiger - Survivor
I’m Not a Perfect Person - Hoobastank
Pocketful of Sunshine - Natasha Bedingfield
Rooftops - Lost Prophets
Say What you Need to Say - John Mayer
The Show Goes on - Lupe Fiasco
Iris - Goo Goo Dolls
Don’t Stop Believing - Journey

And on behalf of my team captain and team members:
Linkin Park
and Baba Yetu (One person from our team is obsessed with this song)

Oh and it wouldn’t be fair for the international teams (if we were in the same hall)…
Shakira - (Estoy Aqui and such…)
Espacio Sideral - J&J
Nina - Reik
and some Chinese songs

Nice list…minus Taylor Swift. lol
