First, the Super Bowl was the MOST watched in the history of the game. That despite all the naysayers saying nobody would watch it because there were no major market teams in it. Take that, New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Nobody missed you. We love middle America and small towns.
Second, we’re still celebrating here in Wisconsin. In fact, Governor Scott Walker declared February Super Bowl XLV Champions Green Bay Packers month. So you’ll forgive me if I post some songs dedicated to the green and gold.
After that season and especially that win, we’re all “Feeling Fly like a Cheesehead.”
Here’s Pat McCurdy with a song he was asked to write for the Lambeau Field jumbotron. This is what he came up with.
And here’s the official G-Force song.
And for the hip-hop set, here’s Lil Wayne with “Green n Yellow.”
“This is Bart Starr of the Green Bay Packers. Go you Packers, go.” Of course, no song list would be complete without the official team fight song.
And then, shortly after the 1996 Green Bay Packers won the Super Bowl, a local band called the Wedgies came out with an album called “Brat out of Hell.” (For you non-German types, that’s not pronounced brat as in your snot-nosed kids, but braht for bratwurst.) Some of the songs talk of heading to San Diego next, and some talk of the Packers that were on that team, but the songs are still very well done take-offs on hit rock songs. For instance, here’s “The Pack is Back.”
And since this group did just win their first ring, and it has an excellent chance of repeating because all their injured players will be back and we’ll lose very little in Free Agency, here’s “We’ve Got Another Ring Comin.”
And of course, no Packers music collection would be complete without the Happy Scnapps Combo.
Hope you enjoyed this and we’ll see you next year because the Pack is Back!
