Prince Composes Vikings Fight Song!

| Filed under: ZportzPrince

After seeing them play a game against the Dallas Cowboys last week, the legendary Prince decided to write a fight song for the Minnesota Vikings!

And although it's a nice gesture, the song isn't quite the right vibe for a team about to play in the NFC Championship game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

The lyrics are as follows:

the veil of the sky draws open
the roar of the chariots touch down
we r the ones who have now come again
and walk upon water like solid ground
as we approach the throne we won't bow down
this time we won't b denied

raise every voice and let it b known
in the name of the purple and gold

we come in the name of the purple and gold
all of the odds r in r favor
no prediction 2 bold
we r the truth if the truth can b told
long reign the purple and gold

the eyes say ready 4 battle
no need 4 sword in hand

Watch the clip (above) to hear the musical incarnation of purple and gold!

Ha!

    ALL IT NEEDS IS A HIP HOP REMIX WITH A HEAVY BEAT. PRETTY MUCH ANDROGYNOUS AS IT STANDS.. AND THIS DOUCHE IS INDUCTED IN RRHOF. SMH.



  2. 2

    Prince and the Vikings in the same breath just doesn't go together.



  3. 3

    Fight song? It sounds more like church music



  4. 4

    It does sound like Church music.. that was my first thought.. not exactly a song that is gonna get people pumped.. I love my Vikings but not that song.



  5. 5

    I love ya Prince but WHO DAT!! I can't wait till Sunday to get back to the 'dome and see my Saints!!



  6. 6

    Ain't gonna happen, no matter how many stupid fucking songs they write… New Orleans is gonna mop the fucking floor with them.



  7. 7

    SKOL VIKES



  8. 8

    That is the worst song ever for a football team and the TPain Miami dolphins one is pretty bad too. Altho…TPain did make my ears bleed while Prince just made me fall asleep so I think its actually the SECOND worst fight song. Lol!



  9. 9

    SKOL VIKES! He is a true Minnesotan and a sports fanatic through and through. I have seen him downtown, at the movies and at so many sporting events.

    All I have to say is

    GEAUX SAINTS!!! WHO DAT!



  13. 13

    Wow that sucked monkey balls!



  14. 14

    Isn't Prince from the Minnesota area? Probably just wanted to do it for his home team. Not saying I like the song.



  15. 15

    Perez this was so bad I couldn't even listen to the whole thing. What happened to Prince? From Purple Rain to Purple and Gold ridiculousness.

    I heard this earlier today and couldn't believe how awful it is. Good grief, it's like writing a wedding march for a boxing match. Absolutely terrible song for anything, let alone a fight song for a football game. YEESH!

    Viking are going to mop the floor with the Saints, sorry guys, it's meant to be.

    (That Prince song is no good. I hope they don't play it, it'll probably bring them bad luck.)



  18. 18

    the song is trash, but SKOL VIKINGS!!! =]



  19. 19

    That has got to be the 'gayest' fight song ever made. Ain't NOBODY singing that at NO game. Maybe if they were called the Minnesota FAIRIES!"



  20. 20

    I think Prince is a musical genius, but this… not a fan. If the Vikings aren't leading at half time, the coach should play this and threaten them with putting it on auto-repeat for the plane ride back if they don't win.

    Prince is at all the games, he is a Minnesotan after all. He likes football



  22. 22

    Sounds like a song that should be on some Tim Burton film/soundtrack.



  23. 23

    WTF?? LMAO! It sounds like a Teletubby song!!



  24. 24

    What. The. FUCK!?!?



  25. 25

    Love Prince……THIS SUCKS!!!
    I always thought "Purple Rain" should be their song!



  26. 26

    I LOVE BRETT FAVRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    But the SAINTS have this!



  27. 27

    Go Saints



  28. 28

    this is the lamest song ever! Geaux Saints!! Who Dat!!



  29. 29

    SCREW THE VIKINGS!

    I'm an avid Cowboys fan, and although I had to watch my poor boys get their asses handed to them, I hope the Saints come through and beat them.

    Damn you Tony Romo and your non-consistency!



  30. 30

    You can tell this was recorded about 20 years ago.



  31. 31

    Come on Vikes!!!! They've got this… even if it isn't at the dome.



  32. 32

    Not too bad - needs smoothed out and less Prince-y, tho'.



  33. 33

    Nice one, Royal Purple One~ And though I hate to ruin your fun~This Sunday night our Glo'rious Saints~are going to dance upon your taints!~Alas, you'll travel far from home~to get that ass whooped in our dome~The Saints Are Marching In, you see~And OWNED is what you're gonna be~can't stop Reggie, Can't stop Brees~better get down on your knees and pray for strength, though it won't do~ God loves His Who Dat Nation, too!



  34. 34

    im a vikings fan. prince doesnt know what he's talking about. the odds are NOT in our favor. gonna be a tough game on sunday.



  35. 35

    I'm a huge Prince fan…but this sucks



  36. 36

    It's like a hymn, a really, really badly written hymn.



  37. 37

    fuck the vikings and brett favre. i cannot bring myself to have any respect for an athlete that claims he's going to retire at the end of the season and then comes back to a different team two years in a fucking row. GO SAINTS.
