Sweet merciful crap, this Cardinals fan’s playoff anthem is awful, just awful (video)

No. Words. No. Freaking. Words.

Entitled “The Chase is On” — I’d rather undergo the tortuous experience of listening to Glenn Frey’s “The Heat is On” repetitively over this hot mess — this anthem was deemed by whoever posted the video to YouTube as the “Official Cardinals Playoff Song for 2013.” Was that with the expressed written consent of the St. Louis Cardinals and/or Major League Baseball? Somehow, I doubt it.

Deadspin’s Tom Ley claims he listened to the song for 48 seconds before giving up. Can you top it? I sure as hell couldn’t.

But in the end, this song could serve some purpose. For example, the City of St. Louis could play the diddy over P.A. systems in troublesome areas of downtown where young toughs congregate in order to get them to disperse. It would probably work.
