What Songs from the 1980s Are NFL Players and Fans Listening To?

Charles AsburyContributor IDecember 17, 2008

Here are just a few '80s songs that NFL teams, players, or fans might or might not listen to:

1) The Miami Dolphins: After going 1-15 last year and taking so many shots from the media, now currently 9-5, and leading their division, the Phins might wanna listen to “We’re not gonna take it” by Twisted Sister.

2) Matt Jones, Ex-Jacksonville Jaguar and Rehab Candidate: “Flying High Again”, by Ozzie Osborne.

3) After Matt was released by the Jaguars, I’m sure he must of listened to another Ozzie song, “Mama I’m Coming Home.”

4) Terrell Owens - after Tony Romo doesn’t throw him enough passes - What About Me? - Moving Pictures

5) Tony Romo - Listens to “She’s Got Looks That Kill”, by Motley Crue, while thinking of Jessica Simpson.

6) Tony Romo also listens to Poison, “Every Rose Has It’s Thorn” while thinking of T.O.

7) With all the drama in Dallas, This is for the entire Dallas Cowboy Organization - “One Thing Leads To Another” - The Fixx.

8 ) Every time DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart from Carolina touch the ball. “The Youth Gone Wild” - Skid Row.

9) Adrian Peterson - The League’s Leading Rusher - “I Ran” - Flock of Seagulls. 

10) Drew Brees - League’s Leading Passer - “In the Air Tonight” - Phil Collins.

11) Andre Johnson - League’s Leading Receiver - “You Dropped The Bomb On Me” - Gap Band. 

12) Morten Andersen the oldest active NFL player at age 44 - “The Old Man Down The Road” by John Fogerty or “Touch of Grey” - Grateful Dead

13) 0-14, Detroit Lion's Head Coach Rod Marinelli - “The Heat Is On” - Glenn Frey.

14) All the 0-14, Detroit Lion Fans - “Patience” - Guns N’ Roses.  

15) The one song always played in the locker room of any opposing team before they play the winless Lions - “Take It Easy On Me” - Little River Band.

16) Any NFL Wild Card Team left hoping for a playoff spot- “Livin’ on a Prayer” - Bon Jovi.

17) For all those poor innocent NFL players included in the steroid accusations this year - “I Beg Your Pardon” - Kon Kan.

18) And last but not least, Remember the whole QB controversy in Green Bay at the beginning of the season? So when Green Bay Packer QB Aaron Rogers gets a music playing Christmas Card with tickets to watch the Jets play in the AFC playoffs, there will be no need for a signature, just a song called “The Boy from New York City” by the Manhattan Transfer. 

Maybe his secret admirer’s No. 4 on the inside cover of the card will clue him in. Merry Christmas.
