Douche Chills: For Playoff Anthem, Guy Reworks Lyrics To ‘Don’t Stop Believin”
With the San Francisco Giants holding a 2-1 series lead over the Atlanta Braves in their National League Division Series, there only seemed to be one thing missing on the team’s bandwagon: a patently unoriginal anthem based on a song which became so…played years ago.
While I appreciate this Ashkon’s efforts and his obvious passion and enthusiasm for the San Francisco Giants, his reworking of the lyrics to Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'” for the team’s so-called “Official Playoff Anthem” is, well, it ain’t right.
“Don’t Stop Believin'”? Seriously? Haven’t we had enough of this song at this point? There should be a law that enforces the rule that once a song or artist is featured on Glee, said song and/or artist has to buried alive in a time capsule so that people of a future generation can understand how our society dealt with played-out, overdone yet undeserving pop culture phenomenons.
Hoo boy. And in case you are concerned in the least about the integrity of the above video, do not fret: you are not watching some bootlegged copy of this little ode to banality. According to the description on YouTube, it’s the “Official Version.” All I know is I can’t wait to hear Weird Al Yankovic’s version of this guy’s version of Journey’s original version of the song. Ouch. Typing out that sentence made my brain hurt, more than usual.
