Macklemore Doesn't Want the Thunder Using "Can't Hold Us" at Home Games

Recently, the Oklahoma City Thunder—aka the team that abandoned the city of Seattle back in 2008—started using Seattle rapper Macklemore's hit, "Can't Hold Us," to pump up the crowd at home games. They're probably not alone in doing it, either. With the song soaring up the charts right now, we would imagine that most arenas, stadiums, and ballparks have the song in their regular rotations. But Macklemore takes issue with the Thunder playing the song. And he had this to say yesterday when he was informed about them using it:

We can't say we blame him for reacting that way. The wound that Seattle sports fans sustained when the Sonics left town is still far too fresh for the Thunder to be using a song created by a rapper from Seattle. So they should definitely find something else to use for now.
