A big part about sports has always been the music. Whether you are in the parking lot tailgating or you just witnessed a fight at a hockey game.
The music is supposed to keep the crowd pumped and engaged with the events on the field. But what happens when sporting events ruin a song because they play it so much?
That was the question posed to GuysGirl Twitter and Facebook, and we got some pretty interesting responses from gimmicky songs to ones you thought would be untouchable.
'Sweet Home Alabama' by Lynyrd Skynyrd
Ahhh....the Southern anthem in what every teenager for the last 25+ years has grown up loving that song. But when you spend this many years around sports, you know this song is played at every single game, no matter the sport. Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee agreed with me that once you hear it start, it just sucks the life out of the entire stadium.
'The Waiting' by Tom Petty
Every hockey game there are at least two occasions where this song is played. Every. Single. Game.
'Sweet Caroline' by Neil Diamond
It’s played at almost every sporting event and wedding you attend.
'Keep Em’ Separated' by Offspring
The traditional song played after every single hockey fight ever.
Besides my personal choices for what songs sports has ruined for me, many people on the various social networks had their own opinions as to what song they hated at sporting events.
