… if that “Paint the Town Red” song they play during the “Get your Reds’ season tickets” ads becomes the Reds’ new anthem. I’ve had nightmares about that damned song since the first time I heard it. Nails on a chalkboard.
Best part of the story from mlb.com though … apparently this band that sings it – The Hotcakes – pitched the song to several MLB teams.
“We called a bunch of teams. The Reds showed the absolute most enthusiasm,” said Hotcakes drummer Lee Leshen.
I can’t imagine that has ANYTHING to do with the fact that THE TITLE OF THE SONG IS “PAINT THE TOWN RED” AND CINCINNATI’S TEAM IS CALLED THE REDS! Wow.
