Given his choice of pump-up music, hopefully mom's spaghetti is never on David Quinn's pregame menu.

The New York Rangers coach revealed Wednesday that his favorite artist to play before games is none other than rapper Eminem.

"You know who gets me fired up? Eminem," Quinn said in an interview with Michelle Gingras and Steve Valiquette on the Rangers' Twitter account. "I'm telling you. That guy is as talented an artist as there has ever been."

Quinn added that he doesn't have a particular song that he uses to gear himself up for games. He just appreciates Eminem's whole catalog. 

"I just love his passion," Quinn said. "He gets me pretty wound up."
