Please, Save The Washington Nationals From Themselves (Musically)

Mar 21st, 2008 // 9 Comments

heylookitsodalisperez.jpgThere’s a lot of planning that goes into a new stadium. “Can we break the $10 barrier on the price of nachos?” “Where do we locate the hot dog topping station?” “How much extra security do we need for Bat Night?” In order to focus on those pressing issues, the Washington Nationals have passed the buck to you, Internet user, to pick the various songs played loudly while certain events are occurring. However, the problem is, many of the songs you have to choose from are AWFUL.

First up, the home run anthem. The options are:

Because We Can by Fatboy Slim
Bustin Loose by Chuck Brown
Kernkraft 400 by Zombie Nation
Off We Go (Air Force Theme) by Robert Crawford
Song 2 (Woo Hoo) by Blur

I don’t even want to think about the Air Force theme option, but really, do sports fans need another opportunity to hear this?:

Go now, and vote for Chuck Brown. It’s the logical choice, since he’s actually from DC, and the song is actually good.

In fact, why can’t the entire ballgame feature a go-go theme? At very least, when C.C. Sabathia visits town, they could thrown on EU’s “Da Butt”.

    judging by the nationals’ pitching this afternoon in florida whoever’s running the soundboard should have a copy of ‘yakety sax’ on hand at all times

    preferably this version:

    Screw “Bustin Loose”, it should be Chuck’s DC Lottery song

    No other song is worthy

  3. loudersoft

    It should always be “Popcorn” by Hot Butter

  4. loudersoft

    and only because i say so not for any special reason

  5. loudersoft

    Sorry I pasted the wrong version

  6. Dead Air ummm Dead Air

    What about the jingle for Eastern Motors that Biz Markie wrote?

  7. Jerkwheat

    @Dead Air ummm Dead Air: At Easterns Motors….

    Your jobs your credit….

    everything in dc should have a go-go theme, stringer bell be damned. traffic cops should carry cowbells and the beltway should be renamed for Trouble Funk.

    that zombie nation song scares the hell out of my dog.

    Did I ever tell you guys about how my wife and I punk’d some of our more clueless friends during the year in which we were engaged by telling them our first-dance wedding song was going to be “Da’Butt”?

    My wife didn’t even know the song, but I trained her to say with a straight face, when asked what “our” song was, Oh, yes, it’s going to be “Da’Butt” by E.U. – Experience Unlimited. She got pretty good at it after a while.
