Super Bowl QB Tom Brady's Playlist Includes Pearl Jam and Coldplay


(Radio.com) When it's time for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to get pumped up for a game, he turns to contemporary hip-hop, alternative and a dash of classic rock.

The Super Bowl-bound QB opened up about the recording artists he listens to when it's time to get ready to play during a press conference in Minnesota on Tuesday (Jan. 30).

"Music is a great thing for me. That's probably what I do most," Brady explained about his favorite music. "It just depends what I want to kind of get up for. A lot of JAY-Z, Coldplay, U2, Pearl Jam, Kendrick Lamar. A lot of guys in the locker room are playing stuff, so there's a lot of things I like."

The quarterback's Coldplay fandom is on record, with Brady shouting them out during a press conference last summer, where he talked about wanting to see the band's show at Gillette Stadium.

"They're one of my favorite bands, so it's pretty convenient tonight," Brady at the presser, which was happening the same day as the show. "I think I might try to sneak out there. I'd like to be out there. I think we have meetings to a certain point, but after that, I'd love to see it" (via ESPN). Read more here.
