On Monday before the Bengals took the field and the decided to play Katy Perry’s new song “Roar” because of the tigers I suppose. They also just couldn’t wait to play it right away after the final whistle. Well it looks like the fans of the Bengals have spoken and that will cut that out immediately according to the Wall Street Journal:
“I think some fans proved that there’s an expectation that when the team takes the field, there should be more of a hard-rock, classic-rock song and I know that’s what we’re going to do this game,” said Jeff Berding, the Bengals’ director of sales and public affairs. “Katy Perry is not going to be the last song you hear before the team takes the field.”
It’s pretty cool that the Bengals actually listened to their fans on this one. There are plenty of other songs to get you pumped up for the game. As long as it’s not the Black Eyed Peas.

If you tuned in on Monday to watch the Cincinnati Bengals defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers at home, you may have noticed an interesting choice of music being played over the speaker system at Paul Brown Stadium throughout the game.
The music I am referring to is Katy Perry's hit sing "Roar" and it apparently didn't go over well with the majority of Bengals fans...
Whenever I write about Katy Perry, I usually say “the breasts of Katy Perry” or “the boobs of Katy Perry” did xyz, because clearly she can’t sing, dance, or write/produce music. Katy Perry is where she is today simply because of her looks, i.e. her breasts. A body can carry you far in America, especially if you’re woman.
And if there’s one party you would want to have...
You can play your AC/DC, your Nickelback, your P.O.D., your Papa Roach ... you can play some really terrible music at NFL stadiums and nobody will say a word.
But Katy Perry? Nuh uh.
The Cincinnati Bengals found out that the hard way, when they played the bubblegum pop star's song, "Roar," before, during and after Monday's win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Paul...
Cincinnati tried to play Katy Perry's new song "Roar" during the Steelers game, but Bengals fans took to social media to express their intense displeasure with it all.
Funny Brilliant and brief tweets from the week that was.
Why on god's green earth would an NFL Football team think that having a Katy Perry song be their teams "run-on-the-field" music is a mystery not only to the people of Cincinnati but those who are fans of any NFL team.
Yet that's exactly what the Cincinnati Bengals did.
Or were doing.
The team decided for some strange reason to...
You can play your AC/DC your Nickelback your P.O.D. your Papa Roach . . . you can play some really terrible music at NFL stadiums and nobody will say a word.
But Katy Perry? Nuh uh.
