Music’s Biggest Artists Produce Anthems for Favorite NFL Teams

In an effort to promote their partnership and America’s favorite pastime, Pepsi and the National Football League have commissioned four of music’s most popular artists to write anthem’s for their hometown teams.

Kelly Clarkson, Gym Class Heroes front man Travie McCoy, Ice Cube and Kid Rock  contributed tracks celebrating their favorite teams (the Dallas Cowboys, the New York Giants, Oakland Raiders and Detroit Lions respectively.)

Clarkson’s lone star anthem “Get Up,” was the first to be released and the tune is extremely catchy even if you loath the Texas-based team (and this is coming from a fan of the G-Men.)

 

“It’s a really cool thing, and I’ve never done anything like this in my career. What a cool way to reach another audience. I can’t wait to hear it in the stadium.”

McCoy’s New York Giant’s song “All In” will only be available through Pepsi redemption codes. The song will become available for free download starting September 3rd, just two days before the G-Men’s match up against Clarkson’s favorite star-clad footballers.

Kid Rock’s “In Detroit” and Ice Cube’s Untitled Raiders song will be released in due time. A remix version of Wiz Khalifa’s Pittsburgh Steeler’s anthem “Black & Gold” will be made available through this new campaign.

We're looking for writers and editors to join the team. Interested? Apply today!
