One player likes to listen to gospel music, another only listens to hip hop, and one even wants to be a rapper one day. Check out what these Super Bowl players will be listening to on game day. Video by Ryon Horne/AJC

Super Bowl 53: Which artists do Gronk, Gurley and Goff listen to before a big game?

Super Bowl Opening Night is the only time the two competing teams – the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots – see each other until Super Bowl Sunday, and also the only chance the media has to talk to specific players all in the same room.

Thousands of media members and fans gathered at State Farm Arena on Monday night armed with questions about routes and strategies. But AJC video producer Ryon Horne and I had a different line of questioning for the guys - the hard-hitting query about what kind of music gets them hyped for a game? Especially THE game coming up on Sunday?

Rob Gronkowski, Jared Goff, Todd Gurley, and Sony Michel are some of the players who engaged with us – and we also learned who among them can’t dance and who has aspirations of being a rapper.
