Athletes: Worst music taste ever?

I just flipped on ESPN to check out the home run derby. What do I see when I get there, but Johnny Damon and Mike Piazza "rocking" out onstage with Alter Bridge. For those of you who don't know who Alter Bridge are, good for you, they are the douche rockets who used to be in Creed. A deep and lasting chill went up my spine. Athletes have the worst fucking taste in music ever. I went to the Cubs vs. Braves game last Tuesday and when the players go up to bat 1 of 3 song types accompany them to the plate...

A. Annoying Rap song: I like some rap, but not "Hot in herre" by fucking Nelly.

B. Latin Song: I understand many baseball players hail from Latin America, so the song will obviously be in Spanish. I just wish they wouldn't compound the problem of me not understanding the Spanish language by playing a cheesy, superdisco-techa, latin-house influenced song. This is the worst genre of music ever invented.

C. Late 1990's early 2010's "New Rock" music: Creed, 3 Doors Down, Nickelback, Staind, Puddle of Mud, Limp Biscuit, Linkin Park, Matchbox 20, Hoobastank, Saliva, etc,etc,etc. In-fucking-excusable.

Everytime these assholes come up to the plate it's always some of the above-mentioned horseshit music. I know they only play the song for like ten seconds, but that ten seconds is plenty enough to piss me off. The home-run derby/Alter Bridge incident just confirmed my belief that athletes should stop listening to music. Just fucking give up guys, it's obviously a lost cause for you, you just don't get it.

Those bands suck, but don't forget Piazza's a fag.

Alter Bridge? Glad I've heard of 'em. If they're in the mix with Linkin Park and Staind, I'd have to rip off my ears and flush them down the fucking toilet.

Worst genre of music ever is not latino disco, but is the garbage you can find on a Top 40 radio station right now. Backstreet Boys? Lindsay Lohan? Kelly Clarkson? Gross. I'd rather dance the salsa with a mexican whore than listen to that American Idol shit.

Honestly, I've thought for quite some time now that athletes are, as a collective, one of the cheesiest fucking segments of the american population. I consider myself an athlete of sorts, since I'm constantly setting shit on fire, but at least I "try" to explore new pop culture outlets, rather than stick to the "me too, me too" bullshit that the radio, MTV, and other mainstream sources are expectorating on the dim-minded.

Setting shit on fire should be an Olympic sport; it can be played right after the Kick me in the Jimmy tournament.

I totally think setting shit on fire should be some sort of Olympic sport. The ratings would fucking lap everything else. "Did you see the the marathon final?" "No but I did see when that German won the gold for setting shit on fire when torched that orphanage." That would be fantastic.

The ideas are endless: best shit set on fire, longest duration of shit-fire, most amount of shit set on fire in a 24-hour period.

I mean, I definitely think that the French and Iraqis have the rest of the country totally defeated, but I would watch that sport more than, say, curling.
