“Tessie” by Dropkick Murphys
"Tessie" is the name of two songs devoted to the Boston Red Sox. The first, from the Broadway musical “The Silver Slipper,” motivated the team to win its first World Series championship in 1903. The second was recorded in 2004 by Boston legends Dropkick Murphys, who wanted to recapture the spirit of the original song and once again drive the team to a championship. Mission accomplished: Later that year, the Red Sox won their first World Series in 86 years. —Jeff Royer
