WholeCamels – Paradise City, by Guns and Roses. "Take me down to The GoodPhightCity, where the field is green and the bloggers are witty." Those might not be the lyrics, but they should be.Taco Pal – Thunderdome, by Pink Cream 69. “You’ve got the right to win or lose… IN THE
Of course, the real song is pretty good too.Schmenkman – Scatman, by Scatman John. “I’m the S(t)atman!.” Not a rock anthem, either. Not rock at all, really, and has nothing to do with baseball. But, if you excuse the misspelling, it’s right on. “I hear you all ask about the meaning of s(t)at, well I’m the professor…”
Joecatz – Passion Rules the Game, by The Scorpions. “When passion rules the game, I ain’t got no control, when my heart’s in flames.” Between Grandpa and Joecatz Jr, there’s some obvious ‘passion for the game’ in that family. Props. Plus, “Good luck is everywhere,” so sayeth Catztradamus. Fuqua Manuel – MTA, The Kingston Trio. “Well let me tell you a story of a man named Charlie…” Not really rock, and it’s about the Boston MTA, but it’s a damn good toe-tapping song, and it’s about a man named Charles Fuqua Manuel who goes round and round and round… LeQuan – Rock the Casbah, by The Clash. Stop the cashbox. Clean the catbox. Lock the taskbar. Lequan don’t like it. What the whatwhat? Honorable Mentions: Phrozen - Happy Boy, by The Beat Farmers. Take Me Out to the Ballgame? Pssh. During the Seventh Inning Stretch at the home games of the Fairbanks Goldpanners, this song is played instead. Hubba hubba hubba hubba hubba! ZooWithRoy – Buzz Saw, by The Turtles. A bit of a throwback, but still awesome. Who uses organs in rock any more. Or listens to LPs. Or goes to zoos. Great stuff. Ruben Amaro – Breakin’ the Law, by Judas Priest. $50 million for Jonathan Papelbon? Plusses and minuses, ups and downs; but that's just not right. Chase Utley – Kashmir, by Led Zeppelin. Enough said.
