There seems to be a real battle going on in the dressing room of Manchester United - a pre-match music battle to be precise. Prior to Gary Neville's retirement, rock music was winning this battle. But since the full-back ended his career, R&B fan and midfielder Patrice Evra took over control and now the playlist is consisted of much softer hits.
But luckily, goalkeeper David De Gea has stepped in to defend the honor of the heavy sound. As a huge thrash metal fan, the goalkeeper insists on adding some Slayer tracks on the playlist. And not only that, as he would like some even more extreme music to be added, such as grindcore legends Napalm Death.
"David's asked Patrice if he'll change the music - he's more thrash metal than R&B. He's asked to have tracks by Slayer and Napalm Death added to the dressing room playlist," a source tells The Sun.
Manchester United are currently topping the Premiere league table and are well on their way to win the team's 20th champion title, so maybe R&B music is working well for them after all. But perhaps some good old rock sound would make their lead even bigger.
When we asked you about your favorite workout songs several weeks ago, you've composed a list consisting mostly of rock and metal songs. But what about a pre-match warm-up? Do you think rock and metal beat pop and R&B here as well?
