Many of us have fantasized about what it would be like to be a professional athlete, even Eddie Vedder.

Vedder is known for his Chicago Cubs super-fandom, but if he was stepping up to the plate, what would be his walk-up song?

The Pearl Jam frontman revealed that answer in a recent appearance on The Artist and the Athlete podcast and said, “This song called ‘Give Me the Cure’ by Fugazi.”

Vedder added about the song, “There’s certain songs that — just the sound of them is like a drug. So that’s what I would use. One of those songs that affects me like a drug.”
