Top 10 songs played at sporting events
A song written before most professional athletes were born was played more than any other at sporting events last year. According to music licenser BMI, Queen’s “We Will Rock You” topped the list of sports anthems during the 2009-2010 season. The track, written in 1976, beat out newer songs by Lil’ Wayne and Nickelback for the top spot.
• Speaking of “Car Wash,” it’s the No. 1 song played at baseball stadiums. (How? Why? Are teams running car wash promotions in the parking lot? Does Armor All have a secret licensing deal with MLB? Did Rose Royce, the track’s original singer, play baseball? Somebody needs to explain this to me.)
• The NFL favored “We Will Rock You.” The song “Twilight Zone” (you may not recognize the name, but you’ve heard it) was most popular in the NHL, which is fitting given that hockey always seems to be about 15 years behind the times.
• “Machinehead” is a good tune, but it’s hard to believe it’s played more than Metallica’s “Enter Sandman,” which seems to introduce dozens of college football teams and baseball relievers every year. Similarly, no “Welcome to the Jungle,” “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Let’s Get It Started” or that “I like to move it, move it” song?
• Super Bowl performers Christine Aguilera and the Black Eyed Peas both made an appearance on the list. If I’m Kevin Rudolf or Soulja Boy, I’m not holding my breath for invites to next year’s game, though.
