THE REST OF THE PATRIOTS DEFENSE Twisted Roots, "New Monday," 12 Skies Fire and the Black | For a unit so much maligned, there's only one option: Turn up this boom-boom, chicka-chicka, fire-breathing chorus and "lose yourself and find your strength." Then you'll have a whole new reputation the day after the game.WES WELKER Too Late the Hero, "Who Are You Yelling At," Is This Thing On? | There's a temptation to suggest something from Cosades' Tusks and a Moustache ("Boys (With Bad British Accents)" even talks about riding a train to New York), but it's hard not to go with a quick-moving tune featuring machine-gun bass and lyrics like "I do what I can with what I have to work with/I'm the smallest part of the greatest schemes." How better to describe a dude who's 5'6" and leading the league in receptions?
PATRIOTS FANS AFTER A VICTORY Lost on Liftoff, "Naked and Wasted,"self-titled; Paranoid Social Club, "Wasted," self-titled | That's right. With a victory, it's time for celebration. And New England fans aren't known for nuance.
PATRIOTS FANS AFTER A LOSS Wesley Allen Hartley and the Traveling Trees, "Acreless," Narrow Gauge Quad Trains | I'm not sure there's a more depressing song than this one, running past five minutes of down-and-out: "Entered a contest/Lost by a country mile/But I ran hard anyway." Surely, the Patriots will at least run hard.
