    Shogo Akiyama walk up music

    Of all the important things Shogo can bring to the Reds on and off the field, #1 on the list has to be his walk up song selection. There is a ton of Japanese music out there. For instance, he's got all of J-pop to choose from. That would seem the most obvious direction to go, but I know next to nothing about J-pop, so I'll leave it to others to make suggestions.

    However he could go classic. Pick a genre from any point in the and the Japanese have acts in it. For instance, Japanese surf music. Yes, it exists. In fact, there's a lot of it and surf chords creep into a lot of Japanese rock and pop songs. Shonen Knife, the Japanese all-girl trio answer to the Ramones, were heavily surf influenced. And any Shonen Knife would be a great selection, though maybe Shogo wants to go with less of a throwback. So, here's three suggestions:

    BABYMETAL will break you brain. Seriously, try to process everything that's going on with that band. And if you pick a BABYMETAL song, you pick "Gimme Chocolate".



    Then there's anime, which it a huge deal in Japan (and has a cult following here). Theme songs from anime shows get heavy rotation in Japan. So perhaps something like "Uncrowned Greatest Hero" from One Punch Man.



    Though, a walk up song is essentially entrance music. So he could lift pro wrestler entrance song, and if you're going to do that, might as well go with Tanahashi.

    Right thought. Wrong song.

    I suggest the opening guitar riff from this track off of Flower Travellin Bandís masterpiece, Satori.

    That really depends on whether he's a Tanahashi guy or a Nakamura guy. Can't be both.

    If he does, the Reds have to incorporate the Rainmaker camera fade.
