Cee Lo Green to Sing NFL’s ‘Thursday Night Football’ Intro
Are you ready for some football! Cee Lo Green plans to tackle the NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football’ intro song.
To make things interesting, Green is asking fans to submit videos of themselves singing along to the chorus of the song, which is based on The Ramones‘ anthem ‘Blitzkrieg Bop.’ Starting with the ‘TNF”s Sept. 13 season opener between the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears, fans of each team can submit videos of themselves singing along to the chorus — “Hey, ho, let’s go!” — which was made famous by the Ramones song.
Green describes the theme song as “accommodatingly ambiguous” with its amalgam of punk and hip-hop. ‘I’m definitely a Ramones fan,” he says. “Punk rock is like pots and pans, like making something out of nothing, which is what hip-hop is as well. I talk like a politician but I’m a punk at heart.”
Hey, ho, let’s go Cee Lo!
