Hit Song 'Roar' Receives Backlash From Bengals' Fans
After playing Perry's hit song "Roar" before, during and after their home opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night, the Bengals told the Wall Street Journal on Friday that they wanted to tone down the playing of it after a social-media backlash.
Specifically, it was the playing of the song during the player introductions that drew the ire of some fans.
A team spokesman reiterated to ESPN.com on Saturday afternoon the organization's wishes to reevaluate how often it will play Perry's song during home games. The Bengals are not planning to completely nix it from the overall musical rotation, the spokesman added.
