LeBron James’s iPod Playlist

by | Jun 3, 2009 | 36 comments

I got some pretty good inside information from Need4Sheed reader and friend Raul A. Mora aka El Patron Himself (of The Big Denial fame). Apparently he found out what LeBron James’s current iPod playlist is.

I blew up the picture so we could clearly see his iPod and from the looks of it on track 3.

Good job El Patron!

If know of any additions to LeBrons playlist, by all means leave them in the comments and if you didn’t get a chance to read this little piece on the “King”, by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports….I suggest you do so.


  1. VJ

    suicidal thoughts – Notorious B.I.G.
    life’s a bitch – NaS
    Runaway love – Ludacris
    Say goodbye – Chris Brown
    so sick – ne-yo
    all falls down – kanye west

  2. abc

    bad Day- Daniel Powter

  3. Natalie Sitto

    Love them all, I will add post after we get more. It seems like it will be an ever growing list. I’m adding a few myself.

    Cry Me a River – Justin Timberlake
    Dazed and Confused- Led Zeppelin
    Blow Out- Radiohead
    Karma Police – Radiohead

  4. Natalie Sitto

    You Shook Me – Led Zeppelin
    Heartbreaker – Led Zeppelin

  5. Cleveland Frowns

    Dangerous game you folks are playing here. You’re only making the Kid hungrier with all of this piling on . . . he’s only going to get better. Then you’ll all have “The Takeover” by Jay-Z on your playlist:

    Please leave it alone
    Don’t throw rocks at the throne
    Do not bark up that tree
    That tree will fall on you
    I don’t know why your advisers aint forewarned you . . .

  6. Rashid Umar

    Ill pile on…

    Anyone noticed that both times the Cavs have beaten the Pistons in the playoffs that they don’t come close to winning the title? Or is it just me?

  7. Natalie Sitto

    No games being played here, just poking fun at the Almighty King who showed his flaws during his walkoff. I was the first one to say that Cleveland killed the Pistons and were the better team this season.

    Pistons fans had to take all the unruly Cleveland fans for years…this is hardly payback.

    And what do advertisers have to do with anything? This isn’t ESPN, or Yahoo!

  8. Colin

    I’m On A Boat-The Lonely Island-Feat T-Pain

    LBJ is gone fishing!!

  9. Colin

    It Ends Tonight-The All American Rejects
    It Takes Two-Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock
    Keep You Much Longer-Akon
    Say Goodbye Hollywood-Eminem
    Same Song and Dance-Eminem
    See You Again-Miley Cyrus
    Sorry, Blame It On Me-Akon
    Bad Day-Daniel Powter

    That was fun! =]

  10. BOSHandAriza

    Both times they beat the Pistons were actually the closest they came to winning a title…think about it

  11. Sheed fan 4-eva

    Walk and Don’t Look Back — Peter Tosh
    Cry Baby — Janis Joplin

  12. DieHardPistonsFan






  13. David

    Hahaha that’s too funny! Thank you thank you thank you!

  14. Bob

    Pet Shop Boys — New York City Boy
    If You Seek Amy- Britney Spears
    Summer Rain- Belinda Carlisle
    Dancing Queen — ABBA

    Meanwhile, Cleveland has this song on repeat: Rick Astley – Never gonna give you up

    Nice post Natalie.

  15. binarybasketball

    lol, I love it even though I wanted Cleveland to win the ECF. Still top notch.

    Failure – Sevendust

  16. El Patron Himself (Accept no Imitations!)

    1. As the saying goes, if you can’t handle the heat, get out of the kitchen! LeBron has been called “The Chosen One” so it comes with the territory.

    2. “The Takeover” by Jay-Z… HOW FITTING indeed, because that’s EXACTLY what’s gonna happen next summer. Jay-Z will TAKE LeBron OVER to the Nets… Nat, PLEASE add this song officially to the iPod list right below track 5!!!!

  17. Sam

    King of Pain – The Police
    American Idiot – Green Day
    Human – Human League
    Good Bye to You – Michelle Branch
    Big Girls don’t cry – Fergie

    And what David Stern and Danny Curry have on theirs
    “Wrapped ARound your finger” by The Police for failing to punish LeFRaud for unsportsman like conduct. Anyone else would have been fined.

  19. Ruben Pittman

    Black Superman by Above the Law.

  20. nice

  21. Bend3r

    Into the Strom – Blind Guardian.

    Give it to me
    I must have it
    Precious treasure
    I deserve it

    Oh it’s sweet how the
    darkness is floating around
    We are following the will of THE ONE
    through the dark age and into the storm

    I still hunger for more
    Release me

    Give it to me
    How I need it
    How I need it
    How I need it
    I did my part
    Now it’s your turn
    And remember
    What you’ve promised

    Same band: Bright Eyes

    Leave me alone
    Isolation bears hope
    There’s something else waiting
    A promised destiny
    Freezing me
    I feel restless and low
    These days full of sadness
    Had joyfully changed
    Into fear
    My freakshow will start tonight
    Don’t miss the right time
    Bright eyes
    Blinded by fear of life
    No Merlin is by my side

    And another two song of Blind Guardian: And the Story Ends y Journey through the dark

  22. Leo

    Summer girls- LFO


    Don’t hate on LB for not shaking hands, I am sure most of your remember a man name Zeak walked off the court with out shaking hands with Jordan. I am not saying its a good thing, but some people just give so much of them self to winning the game they can care less what other think. Second he is only a kid, give him a break.

  25. detroitbball

    Under the bridge – red hot chilipeppers

    Personal Jesus – Depeche Mode

    Starfuckers, INC. – Nine Inch Nails

  26. Sharif Nasr

    This is amazing, I have to add a few (sorry if I say some that are already on the list)

    Yesterday – The Beatles
    99 Problems – Jay-Z
    Creep – Radiohead
    I’ll be missing you – P Diddy
    Another one Bites the Dust – Queen
    Holiday in Cambodia – Dead Kennedys
    Move Along – All American Rejects
    Wake me up when September End – Green Day

  27. Matt Selke

    Yeah and we also dealt with all the media criticism at the time. Same thing here.

  28. Matt Selke

    The “King” without a ring. I don’t care if starves, he’s still human. I don’t think he could want it anymore. He just needs ppl around him with that same hunger. I hate LBJ, he does need to grow up some. I used to hate Kobe the same way but he has matured some over the years. I am cheering for the Magic, but if I give my realistic opinion I think the Lakers will win. The Lakers would have beaten Cleveland too. They just are in a league of their own like the Cs were last year. Even with Garrnet this year they weren’t the same team. IDC what their record said.

    Save Yourself – Dropping Daylight
