J.Cole & Travis Barker Baseball Tonight Theme Songs

Awhile back, ESPN tagged Jermaine, and now Travis Barker, to create a new version of the Baseball Tonight theme song for the 2011 Major League Baseball season. Check out both of their versions and vote here.

ESPN enlisted the help of notable musicians to provide their distinctive interpretations of the “Baseball Tonight” theme song during the 2011 season. We’ve already featured these versions of the song on air and in the ESPN Music section, but now we want you to help us crown the best version of them all.

For 11 weeks, we’ll have two artists square off in a poll for you to vote on. The winner will then face the next artist on the schedule and so on until the final week, when we’ll see who is the last one standing (full schedule at the bottom). Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker scored his second comeback victory in a row by knocking off Seether in Week 4 to earn the right to take on J. Cole this week. So vote in the poll at the right of this page now through Sept. 1

    Cole’s was a million times better. But Travis Barker is more well known, and with Blink 182 doing their comeback promo, I’m guessing he’ll win it.
