A look inside the driver intro music at Bristol; the good, bad and ugly

OK. Bristol's racing may be less exciting lately, but at least we get cool driver introductions ... with the drivers picking their intro music.

Some make sense, some are silly, and some are just strange.
And, in true superstar fashion, Dale Earnhardt Jr. is keeping his pick a secret until he walks down the ramp.

Here's my favorites, and some commentary, on the ones we do know.

Carl Edwards -- "Run This Town" by Jay Z
Gotta love the hip-hop presence this year ... A little Jay-Z and Kanye never hurt anyone.

Jimmie Johnson -- "Don't Mess Around With Jim" by Jim Croce
They've been trying to mess with you for five years, Jim. It ain't worked so far.

Jeff Gordon -- "E.I." by Nelly
There's probably a secret tape somewhere of JG getting down to this song on the dance floor sometime in the 1990s.

Jeff Burton -- A combination of "Coal Keeps The Lights On" by Dolly Parton and "Welcome to the Jungle" by Guns 'n' Roses
Um ... I'm pretty sure these two things have never been combined before. I'll go out on a limb and say that.

Paul Menard -- "Gypsy Road"
Nothing like a little old-school Cinderella to kick off the night ... I wonder if Menard ever had their horrible hairdos back in the day.

Greg Biffle -- The Sanford and Son theme song
This choice alone makes Greg Biffle a man of awesomely distinguished taste. He probably called his old crew chief "you big dummy" before the change ... and on a side note, David Pearson once wore a Sanford and Son T-shirt on a TV interview, making him even cooler than he already was.

Kurt Busch -- "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix A Lot
Kind of confusing, since he only dates skinny blondes, but whatever.

David Reutimann -- "Pretty Fly For A White Guy" by The Offspring
I agree David ... you're pretty fly; but your silly Aaron's commercials aren't

J.J. Yeley -- "I'm Sexy And I Know It" by LMFAO
Well, there's some confidence J.J. (oh wait, you didn't even qualify ... that's not too sexy)

As far as what Jr. should come out to, I'm not sure, but I'm pretty sure he should avoid "All I Do is Win"

The "call me Jeff Gor-don in the black SS with the naviga-shon" line probably got Gordon to use it.
