Matt Kemp will walk up to bat this year to the sound of "Spend It" by 2 Chainz or ?"I'm A Boss (Remix)" by Meek Mill. Others will listen to songs from AC/DC, E-40, The Killers and more.

Tuesday marks the 50th anniversary for the Dodgers playing at Chavez Ravine, and what a better way to celebrate than with some hard rock and hoochie mama jamz as the players get announced to the batter's box?

From new hip-hop hits to alt-rock anthems, according to the Dodgers' PR spokesman the songs are a fluid system where the songs can change on a daily basis. Thus you will see that some of the players below will have several different songs.

Chad Billingsley, #58, pitcher

 "T.N.T" AC/DC

*Billingsley seems to have a particular affinity for the Aussie hard rock anthem as he has used "T.N.T." as his  song for the past few years.

Matt Kemp, #27, outfielder, NL MVP runner-up:

"Spend It" - 2 Chainz

"I'm A Boss (Remix)" - Meek Mill

Dee Gordon, #9, shortstop
