    I'm certain several of you have been to a sporting event and heard a LP song pipe through the sound system. Or you watched ESPN and LP was used as transition or intro music. Anyway, please feel free to post anything sports with a LP connection. I don't expect the thread to grow, but it would be fun to see what you can come up with.

    "Battle Symphony" as the 2017 NBA Playoffs theme song



    "A Light That Never Comes" 2013-2014 Houston Rockets starter intros



    "Burn It Down" promoting TNT's coverage of the 2012 NBA Playoffs



    "The Catalyst" played during Super Bowl XLV warm-ups

    Never heard a Linkin Park song at a sporting event and I go to a ton of them

    Only Burn It Down on TV for the playoffs back in the day.

    The theme song this year was really "Humble" by Kendrick. Don't really remembering hearing BS much.

    "What I've Done" was used during the team intros in the broadcast of Super Bowl XLIV in 2010.

    I've definitely heard Numb/Encore played during several warm ups for different events. Pretty common from what I've experienced.

    From the video description:
    "This video has been edited by the ZDF studio with music "Burn It Down" from Linkin Park after the UEFA Euro Cup 2012 Final Spain vs Italy"

    I still remember this! Burn It Down was huge back then in Germany! It was used throughout the Uefa Euro coverage and constantly played on radio.

    I think Battle Symphony was one of the songs of the 2017 NBA playoffs.
