Rimando's #USAvMEX pregame playlist featured on front page of Spotify

By Sam Stejskal

We all know Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando is pretty heavy into music. It’s a big part of his life – he’s always at shows in the Salt Lake area, and he even picks out the pregame mix that gets played during warm-ups at every home game at Rio Tinto Stadium.

Nick had a pretty big foray into the music scene on Wednesday, with his #USAvMEX Locker Room Playlist popping up on the front page of Spotify, the popular music streaming service.

Here’s what you see on the front page of Spotify, right now:

Rimando has a wide-variety of songs on his 15-track playlist, featuring artists like Jay-Z, Kanye West, Notorious B.I.G. and – of course – Rancid, the band that RSL season ticket holder and “Believe” anthem creator Branden Steineckert drums for. Check it out on Spotify before Rimando, RSL captain Kyle Beckerman, midfielder Luis Gil, defender Tony Beltran and the rest of the USMNT take on Mexico in an international friendly tonight at 9 p.m. on ESPN.
