Rob Thomas is rocking the basketball playoffs, again. "Give Me the Meltdown," a new song from the Matchbox Twenty band member, is featured during the NBA playoffs on ABC and ESPN. It's heard over game highlight reels and other on-air spots.

The tune is on Thomas' upcoming solo album, "cradlesong," which includes the newly released single, "Her Diamonds."

Another Thomas song, "This Is How a Heart Breaks," helped provide the beat for the 2005 NBA playoffs.

Thomas called "Meltdown" a "high-energy track" that matches the excitement of basketball and said he welcomes the chance to introduce his music to a wide audience.

He declined to pick a playoff favorite.
