Athlete have the worst taste in music possible. It’s a scientific fact. I believe even Michio Kaku wrote a peer reviewed study on this. Now I can’t fully blame athletes for this, they obviously have much bigger things on their plate. Such as you know… doing athlete stuff, drinking Gatorade, moving tires, grunting while lifting weights. They don’t have time to explore music and while I do believe in the fact that there is no good music or bad music, there is just music. There are exceptions to this rule. Such as Face The Pain by STEMM (I had to look who the artist was, you’d think after hearing this song almost three zillion times, I’d know the artist) , the song that is most commonly known for being the UFC intro. This is a god awful song on every level, it actively makes me angry and not want to consume the UFC product.
Luckily there is a good samaritan out there who is willing to help. Someone by the name of Trent Marderosian tweeted Dana White offering to buy the rights to the song. Dana White replied asking how much, Trent’s offer was “a buck twenty five.” While this might just be a small glimmer of hope in hopeless dungeon that is Face The Pain. One can only hope that this is the start of a brighter future.
Now Dana, if you’re reading this, here’s a song that you must use as the new UFC intro song.
