Picking the worst NFL theme song is sort of like picking the worst war crimes in history – it’s terrible that there are so many to choose from, but having a multitude of options does make for light work. Unfortunately, the terribleness comes from many different VERSIONS of the same songs, so don’t be surprised if you read/watch this piece and find you’ve got a finely-tuned ear that detects the nuances between Faith Hill’s 2011 version of a commercialized Joan Jett song and Pink’s 2006 rendition.
I’m guessing the only reason we don’t make a bigger fuss over this problem is because these theme songs serve as Pavlov’s bell to football fans. It would be like if someone stomped on your foot every other week right before you got your paycheck; it sucks, but it assures you something amazing is on the way.
Let’s cut the crap and get to the crap. Here are the worst NFL musical intros of all time, and boy are they bad.
Note: We’ve also included two parodies. DEAL WITH IT.
