Edwin Diaz’s entrance song, “Narco,” is taking the baseball world and beyond by storm.
A video of Diaz coming out of the bullpen to the trumpet-filled song by Blasterjaxx was viewed more than nine million times, the creators of the song have been seen on MLB Network, and the “Edwin Diaz challenge” became a movement that had the song playing over everyday videos.
Now, Gio wonders if the song has already run its course.
“Is the Edwin Diaz entrance song now played out?” Gio asked. “Everybody’s using it now though, for everything. We even used it here for Joe Benigno’s comeback song.”
Boomer says no way, that it will be enjoyed through the rest of the season and hopefully much of October, and likened it to Mariano Rivera’s famous “Enter Sandman” anthem, which is now synonymous with the first-ever unanimous Hall of Famer.
“It wasn’t used like this, though,” Gio said of Rivera’s entrance song. “It was a long time ago, social media wasn’t a thing…it’s everywhere. It’s being used in weddings now. Every video has got this song behind it. I just don’t want it to be [played out]. It’s a special thing.”
