The 10 Most Cringeworthy Team Songs in Sports History [VIDEOS]
Athletes carry an aura of invincibility that seems to make their fans think that just because they can jump high, run like lightning or throw a ball the length of a small subdivision, that means they can do just about anything. This leads to the music industry automatically assuming that they can also sing.
If a linebacker or power forward’s ego grows too big for their overpriced britches, all an agent has to do is stick them in front of a microphone, give them a few back-up singers and let them “express themselves” with their very own single or even a full album. The public backlash alone could drive the likes of Terrell Owens to a life coach. These songs from sporting’s past were so bad that they almost drove whole teams into group therapy.
