Porno For Corso: Gameday Tabs Farrell and 50 Cent For Intro

Wednesday, August 15, 2007


It looks like it's going to be an all "great idea" day here at AA. I'm voting that this one will be the winner and reason #17,816 on how ESPN has turned into MTV . Via TBL comes this nugget from and MTV Blog......

Now 50 Cent, Kelly Rowland and Perry Farrell and his group, Satellite Party, are adding to the list of music/sports-world promos. The trio recently remixed Satellite Party's "Only Love, Let's Celebrate" for the upcoming 2007 college football season on ESPN.

"[ESPN] had the idea to bring in someone who can rap and a female who can sing, and then put it together [as a remix]," Farrell told MTV News on Thursday. "Coming from the world of rock and roll — and as a DJ — I felt that a lot of rock and roll was being ignored by DJs," he said. "I wanted to bring rock and roll songs into the nightclubs because DJs are always looking for new material, and hip-hop has predominately been what club music has been about over the last 10 years. So when I heard that ESPN was interested in that and they also wanted to get a rapper, they made a wise choice. Their ears were tuning in to the things that I was hoping for. And when they told me they were thinking about 50 on it? Wow, that could be amazing."
First of all....who the hell is Satellite Party? Second....Kelly Clarkson wasn't available? And third...what the hell is Perry Farrell even talking about, and when did he become a DJ??? I think my parents went to "nightclubs", but I'm not entirely sure. Please win the debate Kanye or Kenny...I can't take this anymore.

"I think that it's really good and I'm happy I got to do it and partner in it with 50 and Kelly, and I just look forward to rocking people on Saturday nights for the whole football season."- Farrell

GO CORSO! ITSYA BIRFDAY!!!

I'm not paying attention.

But, speaking of Perry Farrell, I would love to have "Three Days" be the theme for the show.

This is RIDICULOUS!

They should have gone with Nick Lachey instead! (or have an ex-Dallas Cowboy sing or something)

I disagree with your Perry Farrell comment. "Nothing's Shocking" and "Ritual" were big milestones in West Coast Alt-Rock in the late 80s/early 90's. Dude's a fruitcake and Porno for Pyros sucked, but give Jane's Addiction its props.
