Seven Nation Army has become ubiquitous at sporting events around the globe, to the chagrin of many.
Now even cruise ships are getting in on the act. Here’s video of a giant cruise liner blasting out the seven most famous notes in the entire world during Hamburg’s Harbor Birthday celebration this past weekend.
I’m fairly certain at this point that when aliens come to the earth and try to communicate with us via music after landing their giant cake-like space craft on top of Devil’s Tower, they won’t play those notes from Close Encounters of the Third Kind, they’ll play Seven Nation Army.
The aliens think Seven Nation Army is our planetary anthem. And hell, it might as well be. What else would you nominate? That song has become the most recognizable piece of music on the entire earth with the possible exception of Gangnam Style.
And I sure as hell don’t want the aliens thinking Gangnam Style is our planetary anthem. They would probably annihilate us out of pity.
Thanks Jack White. And thanks arenas that started playing that to pump up the crowd. And thanks drunk sports fans.
