The Titans Blow It Out
So there I am, sitting in the the stands at LP Field in the first quarter, watching the Titans take an early lead over the Viking en route to starting the season 4-0 for the first time in franchise history. And during a timeout, this song comes barrelling out of the giant endzone speakers...
This was unbelievably cool. Not just because a local band was getting played at a NFL game, but because the music at LP Field is usually pretty... well, pedestrian. It's generally a steady diet of hip hop, classic rock and country, and if you haven't heard it on mainstream radio, you're not going to hear it in the stands. So to hear non-country locals getting some love was kind of awesome.
Of course, this feel good musical moment was almost erased from my memory during the second half when the fans chose Big & Rich's idiotic "Coming To Your City" over Van Halen's "Jump" as the AT&T Ringtone of the Game. Seriously Nashville?
