I wonder why the Cincinatti Bengals fans objected to the song.
Probably a majority of football fans that feel the song was not a good fit for their games.
Why not? It's a great song.
They must feel like only hip-hop and rock are the only music that can be played in a stadium...honestly, I don't know, but like you said, it really is a great song.
If I was a player, I wouldn't be bothered listening to it before a game.
