    AC/DC is my favorite rock band, and two of my favorite drivers had them as their intro (Dale and Mark). My favorite of AC/DC's songs is Thunderstruck, so it was awesome that it was Dale's intro. That song has the best guitar intro of any song I know.

    Tony and David Stremme pick Bawitdaba

    Dale Jr., Jimmie and David Ragan pick Thunderstruck

    Jeff looks funny on Guns N' Roses' "Welcome to the Jungle''

    Country music is my favorite like:

    Kasey Kahne: Dierks Bentley's "Life On The Run''

    Michael Waltrip: Toby Keith's "As Good As I Once Was''

    Ryan Newman: Big & Rich's "Save A Horse, Ride A Cowboy''

    Joey Logano: Jerry Reed's "East Bound and Down''

    Bobby Labonte: "Chicken Fried'' by Zack Brown Band

    Terry Labonte: "Heartland'' by George Strait (I heard Brad Daugherty saying before the commerical has been started, so Terry walked on that screen and it makes me wild!)

    BWAHAHAHA!!! Elliott's IS funny. Wonder how he came up with that one? Reutimann's got the same song, under a different title.

    I like Mark's pretty well. I'm going to have to go look some of these up. I haven't heard of Menard's. And why did Sorenson pick "Billie Jean?" Did he moonwalk across the stage? LOL

    Yes, Terry chose a good song by a fellow Texan. I can't wait to see the driver intros; it should be very cool.

    A lot of interesting and appropriate choices there. I read somewhere that Smoke wants "Bawitdaba'' to start with the line "Get in the pit and try to love someone!" Very nice.

    Good to see ya, Prez!

    EDIT: You can blame Scott Speed for that, WG. What, you don't think Kyle's "Amazing"? j/k

    Jamie McMurray: AC/DC's "Shook Me All Night Long''

    AC/DC is one of my favorite bands and I love that song. I just noticed that David Ragan, Dale Jr, and Jimmie Johnson all picked "Thunderstruck" as their song.

    I love both songs for both my drivers, Bobby LaBonte and Jamie McMurray.

    Jamies is hilarious, that would not be a song I would ever pick for him.

    I love Bobby's song but it should have been for like David Ragan or someone from Georgia :)

    Yes I really like The Rolling Stones and Start Me Up is one of my favorites.

  • 1 decade ago

    Sure! Dale Jr. is awesome, PERIOD! =) Jamie's song rocks the best, though! *grin*

    I hope somebody posts the video of the intros on You Tube; stupid ESPN coverage... =( *Grrrrrrrrrrrr*

    BTW, Sadler & Reut chose 2001 because it's associated w/Ric Flair.

    Yes the song by Cake is very appropriate and a pretty adrenaline pumping song.
