Listen for it at a stadium near you

by Nick Vitrano

It’s been a while since we have had a solid infusion of new talent in the “stadium anthem” arena.  One of the few predictabilities in the world of sports is the music we have chosen for its soundtrack. Go to any venue of any sport in any city, and brace yourself for: 

· "Blitzkreig Bop"

· "Sirius"

· "Start me Up"

· "Get Ready for This"

· "Whoomp! (There is It)"

· "Rock and Roll Pt. 2"

· "Thunderstruck"

Fill in the blank with your stadium's favorite go-to tune.

It’s not that the aforementioned suck.  They’re solid offerings.  They’re just old and played out.  The Black Eyed Peas’ “Let’s Get it Started,” is about the most contemporary we get on game day, but I think that’s about to change. 

Fall Out Boy’s “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark” is not only a fantastic song (though I have no idea what the lyrics mean), it just makes you want to hit something.  Light 'em up, baby!
