Remember, you can find the previous playlists on the Awesome Mix page (hopefully more lists completed soon!)
Born in the USA by Bruce Springsteen… I can’t promise these are songs that Cap would listen to – but they get me in the mood for playing some of the Star-Spangled-Soldier.
America by Nieil Diamond… I know what you are thinking? Will the ‘Merica songs end. Not quite yet!
We’re An American Band by Grand Funk Railroad… Not over just yet – but getting funky.
Jack and Diane by John Mellencamp… More ‘Merica music.
American Music by Violent Femmes… Okay – searching for America and picking songs I’ve liked over the years probably ends here. Honestly, one of my favorite songs by the Violent Femmes – a bit repetitive but so is Cap with his “I Can Do This All Day” attitude.
Take Me Out to the Ball Game by Eddy J Lemberger… Psych! More America, Baseball! Score a touchdown you know! But seriously, nothing would get Cap more jazzed than this.
No Sleep Til Brooklyn by the Beastie Boys… Alright really getting into caps roots as just a kid from Brooklyn.
Soldier by Fleurie… A somber song in remembrance of Cap’s service and seriously tragic story. This is the song you put on when you flip to the final form of the villain and all your allies are destroyed by an unexpected treachery!
Warriors by Imagine Dragons… This song gets me as well – keeps me in that Cap mood. Cap truly is a warrior and this song has some dark vibes to add to a more drastic game. I really like the action music vibes in the background.
Move Along by the All America Rejects… Alright, that was enough srsbzns – back to some more up-tempo songs. This song is the first in a series of songs representing Caps ability to ready himself and move along.
Tubthumping by Chumbawamba… Not gonna’ lie. This is the song I first thought of when I wanted to add something for Cap’s ability. Whether you are representing his Helmet’s ability to keep you in the game – or – his ability to constantly ready. Cap certainly gets back up again!
Rise Up by Andra Day… This song helps me remember. No matter how bad the scenario may seem – even on heroic levels. Cap has the ability to pull you our of whatever mess you have gotten into as the player!
Stand Up by Flobots… A bit more serious. I feel like Cap would really get behind the meaning of a lot of Flobots songs. All about Standing Up for what is wrong and injustices in the world.
