Some players change it every year, some change it up for certain games, and some never change their song. Heck, some players event use the music to convey inside jokes or send a message to the other team (looking at you, Joe Kelly). Pitchers usually have one song as their walk-up song to the mound, and another if they’re going up to at-bat. For some reason, Max Muncy has three songs.
“Party Up” by DMX, Joe Kelly’s walk-up song
Regardless, it’s fun to see which player chose what song, so courtesy of the Dodgers main music babe DJ Severe, we present to you the 2019 Los Angeles Dodgers Walk-Up Songs (organized by alphabetical order players). Please note, some of these may be outdated if the player chooses to change their song mid-season. We’ll do our best to keep it updated throughout the year.

Should we make a Spotify playlist of these songs? We’ve never even heard some of these, so we can’t properly judge them. Some we’ve been jamming to our whole lives, and in Bren’s opinion, Joe Kelly picked the best one.
