‘The Chase Is On’ Is The St. Louis Cardinals Playoff Song No One Asked For

heat was on?

As a St. Louis Cardinals fan, I don’t even have a decent response for this. I mean, I love fan-made sports team anthems in an ironic way, because 99% of songs and/or videos recorded for the sake of “supportin’ the team, bro” are typically unintentionally hilarious, but this one? I have no clue what was supposed to come of “The Chase is On.”

Maybe this was just intended to be an art house comedy viral video or something so terrible that people would spread it just as I am now, all while the two men responsible for the song would be sitting by and nodding in silent approval. Maybe this was a dicknosing on a James Franco level to support all of the baseball fans that have finally had it with the St. Louis Cardinals and their “Best Fans in Baseball,” and its true intention is to mock them by making it look like it was produced by actual Cardinals fans.

Or maybe they just wanted to support the team. Either way, ouch my ears.

“The Chase is On.”

The undisputed best team theme song.
Come See What's Brewin

Nobody ever asks playoff songs.

I haven't listened to it, but it can't be worse than the time the Mets introduced a theme song with the actual lyrics of:

"David Wright, Jose Reyes making sure you're not safe. Just in case - Carlos Delgado. He's At First Base."

Pssh... this has a long way to go before it matches the greatest STL fan song of all time:

Colby Rasmus Fire Burning In The Outfield

Best: "Go Go You Pilots"


I used to work with Rod Belcher, who wrote this song.

Here come the Astros, burning with desire
Here come the Astros, breathing orange fire
...
No place else but Houston, Astros number one.

(Yeah, that last one's kind of true.)

Why do so many team songs involve heat or fire?
   12. Fred Lynn Nolan Ryan Sweeney Agonistes Posted: October 17, 2013 at 04:27 PM (#4576178)
Same reason why those words show up in so many love songs: easy-rhyming cliches are much easier to work into a melody than "prowesslessnesslessness" or whatever.

I can't even begin to describe the cringe-inducing awesomeness that is "Cheerin' for my city".

Vancouver Canucks fans are seen as a little off (maybe insecure is a better word) by the rest of the NHL. But no one saw this coming.

Lil' Ronnie had better flow than these guys. (Unfortunately, the link to the 2005 Colts rap appears to have disappeared from the internet.)

Not a baseball song, but I like this from the CBC.
