7 Insulting NFL Pop-Music Crossovers

Hank Williams, Jr. – Monday Night Football Theme



Are you ready for some football? Okay. How about an aircraft carrier and some sweet jets? What if busty cheerleaders parachuted from these jets and badly-delivered jokes where celebrated with high fives?? Seriously, you’re ready for all that?? Even the Statue of Liberty throwing her arms up in what could be disgust? I appreciate the sentiment but if the troops were to see this, they’d likely choose not to come home.

Mariah Carey – Thanksgiving Half-Time Show



When Atlanta met Detroit for the 2005 Thanksgiving game, I’m sure nobody in the crowd expected to see anything worse than the Lions on the field. How sadly mistaken they were. The production value on this actually goes DOWNHILL after Mariah emerges from a chintzy foam butterfly, which is hard to do outside of middle school talent shows.

Indiana Jones, Patti LaBelle, Tony Bennett, and Miami Sound Machine – Super Bowl XXIX



When the evil black magic cult, Kali Thuggee, steals your Lombardi Trophy, there’s only one person who can put a stop to them. And that one person is at unknown actor playin Indiana Jones… as well as Patti Labelle… and Tony Bennett… and Miami Sound Machine. I swear this is from the half-time show for Super Bowl XXIX and not a fever dream I had after too much Robitussin.

Black Eyed Peas – Super Bowl XLV



I never did feel that cover songs were their strong suit.
