Fun Friday: Your NBA Finals playlist

The Miami Heat tied up the NBA Finals in Oklahoma City last night at an even 1-1, and while that the QuiBids office (which, you might recall, is located about five miles north of the Thunder’s Chesapeake Energy Arena) a little bit down this morning, we know the Thunder will storm back into Miami at full force when they start Game 3 on Sunday.

In the meantime though, we’ll be cheering for our team a couple of different ways, and you can join in on the fun too!

Earlier this week we set it up so that you can Profile Pic(k) this year’s NBA Champion over at the QuiBids Facebook. Pick the winner correctly and we’ll issue a promotional code that’s good for free bids!

We also built a super-fun app that’ll let you spruce up your Facebook profile picture in honor of the Finals! Add a James Harden beard, a pair of goofy Russell Westbrook glasses, or LeBron’s headband!

And lastly, since Sunday’s a long, long, long ways off, we put together a little soundtrack of songs to get you there and get your NBA Finals fix along the way. Here are a bunch of the best songs with the names of this year’s Eastern and Western Conference Champions in them. It’s also worth noting that in assembling these playlists, I noticed the general trend that “thunder” skewed a little metal while “heat” toward cheesy ‘80s pop.

Anyway, check these songs out on the YouTube embeds or via Spotify below!

“Canned Heat” — Jamiroquai

“Thunderstruck” — AC/DC (obviously)

“Heat Wave” — Linda Ronstadt

“Continuous Thunder” — Japandroids

“The Heat is On” — Glenn Frey

“Thunder on the Mountain” — Bob Dylan

“Heat of the Night” — Paulina Rubio

“Thunder” — The Runaways

“Just a Little Heat” — The Black Keys

“Blood and Thunder” — Mastodon

“Heatwave” — SBTRKT

“Thunder” — Rusko

“Heat of the Moment” — Asia

“The Thunder Rolls” — Garth Brooks

“Disco Heat” — Calvin Harris

“Thunder Road” — Bruce Springsteen
