Music On Only A GameMurray State Fight Song (from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-0v7CoSB3k)

After Thursday's loss to Tennessee State, the Racers' first of the season, perhaps you’d prefer to listen to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utaImPaurko

Bad Words by The Circle Jerks (from Golden Shower of Hits, Porterhouse Records, 1983)

If you've never seen the Jerks in Repo Man (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087995/), you should. Darn good, albiet goofy, movie. And it has the best opening titles of any movie I've seen.

North Dakota Fight Song (from http://siouxsports.com/hockey/schoolsongs.htm)

It's Sooooooooooooiux good.

Workaday World by Jack Beaver (from Music for TV Dinners, Scamp, 1997)

This pizzicato prize and carbonated carillon is a longtime favorite of Only A Game listeners. It makes it easy to imagine oneself as a Perry-Como-era crossing guard, the Safety Manager at a secret underground plutonium refinery or just a staff member of NPR’s only sports program.

Woman by Wolfmother (from Wolfmother, Modular/Interscope, 2006)

The best bad album art since Hawkwind. Check it out: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000WITSZS/ref=sr_1_album_2_rd?ie=UTF8&child=B000WIRV7U&qid=1328905214&sr=1-2

The Puppet Show by The Countdown Kids (from 100 Songs for Happy Kids, CHV Music Factory, 2009)

Why stop at 100?
