This year’s Super Bowl match-up of the Baltimore Ravens against the San Francisco 49ers is shaping up to be an epic grudge match. It’s East versus West and big brother versus little brother. Yup, for the first time ever, the head coaches of the big game’s teams are brothers: John Harbaugh of the Ravens and Jim Harbaugh of the 49ers. For the showdown you won’t wanna miss, here are the tunes to get you in the Super Bowl (or Harbowl) state of mind.
“Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better” – Doris Day
The taunting, the bragging, the arguing—every sibling duo has duked it out like this tune. Just be glad you don’t have to one up your bro’s Monopoly victory by winning the Super Bowl. #awkwardfamilyreunions
“I Left My Heart in San Francisco” – Tony Bennett
The City by the Bay’s classic anthem is so heartfelt (see what we did there?), it has us scheming to book the next flight out to San Fran.
“Good Morning Baltimore” – Nikki Blonsky
Baltimore doesn’t have an iconic ballad like San Francisco’s. But this cheery ditty belts out its love for Charm City—quirks and all.
“Gold on the Ceiling” – The Black Keys
From the golden beaches to the Golden Gate Bridge, San Fran has enough 24K to boast long after the Gold Strike dried up.
“Purple Haze” – Jimi Hendrix
True, purple might not be your traditional football color. That doesn’t stop Ravens nation from repping Purple Pride on the reg.
“Some Nights” – Fun.
Every team needs a war song. No matter who you’re rooting for, this is the one to rock while getting your battle face on.
“Don’t Stop Believin’” – Journey
Sappy and sentimental, sure. But quitters never win, and winners never stop believing.
“Seven Nation Army” – The White Stripes
Nothing gets the fans riled up like this game day favorite. We can almost hear the crowd chanting it now… No, seriously, Baltimore (home of GLHQ) has been humming this nonstop since the Ravens made it to the Super Bowl.
“We Will Rock You” – Queen
A stadium classic that never gets old. Strap on your stomping boots, it’s time to make some noise.
“We Are the Champions” – Queen
Cue the confetti and thank you speeches. No Super Bowl victory is complete without this blaring in the background.
