Hey sports rock fans, tonight is the final of the NCAA men's basketball "March Madness." It's Gonzaga University v. the University of North Carolina. How about we get some music to match the madness?
I'm not going to lie to you. Finding music for these two schools that are appropriate for this blog site wasn't easy. But then again, this is BRP, right?
I couldn't find any rock songs about Gonzaga. Zilch. But I did find a metal anthem that is used as the entrance song by MMA fighter Gabriel Gonzaga, and that's good enough for BRP. And this song is bad: Tipper Gore hated it, etc. So it's a natural for BRP. And with that, here you go: Danzig's song "Mother:"
Now, North Carolina is much easier. There are throw up songs by James Taylor, there are references to "going to Carolina" in the Allman Brothers "Blue Sky," etc. But there is also a song that is as direct to UNC as it gets: "Chapel Hill" by Sonic Youth. And as you know, Sonic Youth is a BRP favorite. Time for lift off:
Who am I rooting for? Well, if you know me, you know that I have a lot of sports-hate, and UNC is one of those teams that falls into that bucket. Elitist pricks whose sports programs are scandal-laden and who tried to keep VT out of the ACC. Gonzaga, on the other hand, means nothing to me. I know the school is in Washington state, but otherwise, it's an unknown. So I'm going with the Zags, which of course, means that UNC will win. Rock on, babies, and see you soon.
My name is Bill, and I live in the greater Philadelphia area. I love music, and I have a lot of opinions. This site is primarily focused on music, but sometimes I get off track. I hope you enjoy.
