There is a newfound level of energy and excitement in Memphis, Tennessee, and its due in large part to the play of the Grizzlies. After all, the team has the Defensive Player of the Year in Marc Gasol, is in the Western Conference Finals for the first time in franchise history, and is garnering more national media attention than ever before.
Believe Memphis flags are flying all over the city, there are more growl towels than regular towels in the Shelby County limits, and the grit and grind mantra has become a way of life for Memphians and Mid-Southerners all over.
Fan support for the home team is at an all time high, and city pride is at a feverish pitch. Even local musicians are showing their support for the Grizzlies, by coming up with Grizz themed rally songs, that highlight the uniqueness of the Grizzlies and the music scene in Memphis.
Thanks to artists like Al Kapone and Teflon Don, fans can listen to Grizz themed music to get hyped on the way to FedExForum. Even the homeless are rapping about the Grizzlies. Below is a list of new songs every Grizzlies fan should add to their playlist.
