The Giants’ official anthem for this- soon to be over- playoff run is “Don’t Stop Believing.” Ah yes, so original. Nothing says West Coast like a cheesy, artificial rallying gimmick. [SF Weekly]
After being catapulted back into relevance byThe Sopranos‘ finale, Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” was soon adopted by the Los Angeles Dodgers as a late-inning rally song. Hilariously, it turns out Journey singer Steve Perry is a Giants fan — and he hated this. “I really wish we’d have hijacked it first. I think the song is about hope and power, and it’s working for them, damn it,” he told the Chronicle.
Well, in a way, the Giants have finally “hijacked” the song. But not a version Perry may enjoy. This version mentions a Rally Thong, after all.
Hilariously, this is an actual lyric: We’re here to win, but in case we lose, I’m purchasing a case of booze. I guess the torture will never end, it goes on and on and on and on.
Can you feel that confidence?
And yeah, the rally thong worn by, the now drunk, Aubrey Huff, makes an appearance too.
Ok, we hereby put out an official call for Phillies fans to one-up this shit. Ready, go!
