It seems like you hear Katy Perry’s “Roar” on literally every radio station across the country. One place you won’t hear it as much will be at Cincinnati Bengals‘ home games. That’s because the team decided to relentlessly play the song, including player introductions and after the win against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The close to 65,000 fans in the stands did not approve. You could just search Twitter reactions and find hundreds and hundreds of tweets bashing the team for this mistake.
Well you know what it worked as the Bengals’ director of sales and public affairs Jeff Berding announced that there would be less Katy Perry playing in the stadium. “I think some fans proved that there’s an expectation that when the team takes the field, there should be more of a hard-rock, classic-rock song and I know that’s what we’re going to do this game,” Berding said. “Katy Perry is not going to be the last song you hear before the team takes the field.” Wonder how this will effect NFL betting lines? Just kidding.
I can’t see how fans or players could get pumped up listening to this song. You need to hear something that you makes you want to smash your head against a wall.
