Denver Sports Omelette: #RoxMusicMadness puts the best walk-up songs in Rockies history against each other

You think picking out your NCAA Tournament bracket was hard? Try doing the #RoxMusicMadness.

The Colorado Rockies are holding a 64-tune tournament for the best Rockies walk-up song of all-time, as judged by votes on Twitter.

The No. 1 seeds include Todd Helton’s (Eric Church’s “Springsteen”), Larry Walker’s iconic “Crazy Train” by Ozzy Osbourne, Charlie Blackmon’s “Your Love” by The Outfield and Brad Hawpe’s “Rockstar” by Nickelback. Somehow Dante Bichette’s “Sledgehammer” by Peter Garbriel is only a No. 3 seed (should’ve been the No. 1 seed in the bottom right quadrant, in my opinion).

A little disappointed that Rex Brothers’ “Hail to the King” by Avenged Sevenfold and Drew Stubbs’ “Money Trees” by Kendrick Lamar were omitted.

Final four prediction? (1) Larry Walker’s “Crazy Train” vs. (1) Todd Helton’s “Springsteen” and (1) Charlie Blackmon’s “Your Love” vs. (3) DJ LeMahieu’s “Go DJ.”

The #RoxMusicMadness Bracket Challenge entry period is CLOSED! Round 1 matchups begin at 11:30am MT. Let’s do this!
