The U.K.'s Performing Rights Society for Music polled its members to find out what the most popular sporting song is and the winner is Van Halen's "Jump." The Rolling Stones' "Start Me Up" came in at second, followed by "Higher & Higher" by Jackie Wilson, "Gold" by Spandau Ballet and Michael Jackson's "Thriller." Wow, those songs get the adrenaline pumping.
Shockingly, Queen's anthemic "We Are the Champions" came in at nine, something we'd have predicted would be Top 3, while Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger" was at 13. Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" was at 18.
