Are You Ready for Some Football With Egypt Central?
'Now is the moment / I waited for / I can't be broken / I'll settle the score.' Egypt Central’s latest single ‘Kick Ass’ is a tailor-made arena ready rocker, and we’re not the only ones to think so.
A bevy of NFL teams from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Dallas Cowboys will now be playing the ‘Gridiron Mix’ version of the song at home games as part of the in-stadium music programs.
Another team, the Baltimore Ravens, has taken it a step further and made ‘Kick Ass’ their official kickoff song for this season along with an official video that fans can check out here. Egypt Central celebrated the collaboration by performing at the Ravens annual 'Countdown to Kick Off' party held in Baltimore last week. The band ‘Kick-ed Ass’ in front of hundreds of fans along with Chevelle, Hinder and Pop Evil.
In a recent interview with Egypt Central’s John Falls, Loudwire asked him what he thought about hearing their song in football stadiums. “It’s very flattering that they picked up the song; it’s an honor and a lot of other things just rolled up into one. It’s a dream come true; it’s unbelievable to be a part of the NFL,” Falls told us.
