Playing .500 ball and competing for a playoff spot, the Indians have been one of the nice surprises of the 2004 MLB season.

Their at-bat songs are no different. Oddly enough, a couple of guys are going old-school with the Beastie Boys and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Ask the city of Cleveland, however, and a return to the mid-to-late '90s would be an even sweeter sound.
