After ESPN made a theme song with Big and Rich for their College Gameday show, everyone else decided that they needed to make a spectacle out of their game broadcast. Although I'm not sure why. Probably a case of doing something just because someone else is. They are all pretty terrible and don't really add anything to the game … especially given the pageantry and passion that surround every college football game. Its not necessary to add production to get people excited like it is with professional sports. (my corporation is better than your corporation!)
For me, ABC's prime time Saturday night game theme is the biggest question mark. It's not only annoyingly bad, but it has nothing to do with the games, college football, or anything else. But even more strange is the choice of cast. Its filled with the typical rappers and r&b people that can be found wherever there's a buck to be made, but then there is Perry Ferrell. Perry Ferrell is the guy from Jane's Addiction and Porno for Pyro's. Unlike 50 Cent, he's not a product, he probably would consider himself to have some artistic integrity. Or so I thought. I still can't figure out what was in it for him to do it, and I can't figure out why the network thought they would get out of having him in the production. He doesn't even really do anything.
