October 7, 2011 - Christian Kane to sing 'Monday Night Football' intro?by CK Admin on 01/06/13
The Seattle Times ran an article on 'Readers' choices for 'Monday Night Football' intros.' The House Rules was named as one people would like to see.
Hank Williams Jr. won't be singing the intro for "Monday Night Football," so who should do it next season?
Pearl Jam, Lenny Kravitz, Fred Rogers, Faith Hill, Hank Williams II and The Boss.
Those are a few of your picks after we asked Seattle Times readers who should sing the intro for "Monday Night Football" now that Bocephus won't be singing his iconic song Monday nights.
There was no consensus, with suggestions coming from virtually every musical genre, and some wanting no music at all.
Country had its share of nominations, from Hill (who sings the "Sunday Night Football" intro) to Christian Kane.
"Faith Hill was great on MNF," wrote CovyGuy from Covington. "Bring her back. No more yahoo rednecks."
Kane's "The House Rules," got a few votes. I'd never heard it. Not bad.
I've heard of Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Foo Fighters and Bruce Springsteen. All were nominated.
Hank Williams III, the son of Bocephus and the grandson of the great Hank Williams, got a flurry of votes. He, apparently, is staying away from the political rhetoric that got his dad in hot water.
"The only person out there worthy of mixing political views and music is Jello Biafra," he told TMZ.
Sorry, Hank, but even your kid knows better.
