The Cincinnati Bengals’ new anthem song lasted just one week. The Bengals are ditching Katy Perry‘s “Roar” after unveiling the song as the team’s pregame, in-game and postgame song, according to The Wall Street Journal. The change comes after fans complained about the new anthem. “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,” The Bengals’ director of sales and public affairs, Jeff Berding said. “Katy Perry is not going to be the last song you hear before the team takes the field.” If you’re curious to hear what “Roar” sounds like, you can watch the song’s official video below.
