This fall, you're going to hear Katy Perry's new hit single, "Roar," everywhere. But there's one place that you definitely won't hear it played—at Paul Brown Stadium during Bengals games.
On Monday night, the Bengals played Perry's single before, during, and after the game and tried to turn it into an anthem of sorts for the team. However, a lot of fans complained about the Bengals using the pop record as an anthem and asked for them to stop playing it so often. And thankfully, they've agreed to silence "Roar."
"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 [on Sunday against the Packers]," Bengals director of sales and public affairs Jeff Berding told the Wall Street Journal. "Katy Perry is not going to be the last song you hear before the team takes the field."
That's probably for the best. People will hear "Roar" enough in other places. They don't need to hear it at football games, too.
