Tom Brady is such a larger-than-life figure and is typically so guarded that he doesn’t seem like a real person sometimes. Usually, he wouldn’t even say much about his taste in music these days. But he opened up about that on Tuesday during his Super Bowl LII media availability.

“It just depends what I want to get up for,” said Brady. “A lot of Jay-Z, Coldplay, U2, Pearl Jam, Kendrick Lamar … there’s a lot of guys in the locker room playing stuff. So there’s a lot of things I like.”

So, without further ado, here’s a 31-song Spotify playlist featuring nothing but the above bands. Even if you’re not a fan, at least you can feel similarly to how Tom Brady does when he gets up for a game.
