Calling All Angels! Angels Stadium Rock…. Hits and Misses
The Beastie Boys… “Sabotage”. Gun it!
Here are some choice tracks to build up the audience at the big A.
Queen’s “We Will Rock You” for whenever our boys of summer need a pick-me-up.
Some sports anthems will never die. When the apocalypse ends, somewhere amid the ruins will be a stadium still blaring Gary Glitter’s “Rock and Roll Part 2.”
“I also don’t think it will be right for our Angels to take the field to anything but the fuzzy opening riff of Norman Greenbaum’s 1969 soul-lifter “Spirit in the Sky.” It’s cool, classic, applicable and rocks with heavenly grace, Nothing fits better.”
Build Me Up Buttercup by The Foundations – could a wimpier or stupider song possibly be chosen for a team’s regular home-game routine?
