It sounds like it should be played during the starting credits of an '80s buddy cop TV show.

I like Bittersweet Symphony a lot. I wish it would stick around. I know it has its detractors, but I am not one of them.

Haha go Paul! Glad he's having fun with this kinda stuff. Yes it sounds like a 90's TV intro but it ain't the worst thing ever.

Also Macklemore on the touchdown celebrations is pretty awesome. I liked that a lot.

Whatever - to echo the first poster - at least he isn't picking the players. Let him have a little fun.

I will say it is a little mellow - maybe it gets a little bit of a heavier riff rock remix for gameday.

It would be a great opening theme song for Talkin' Ducks! with your host Max Unger! if it was 1992.

Why not "The Final Countdown"? I don't think the Detroit Pistons are using it anymore.

Yeah but that's my point. I LOATHE dubstep, but at least it's kinda trendy and new. This song was embarrassing because it just sounds tacky, like old classic rock elevator music, doesn't get me jacked up AT ALL.

I just wish we had something that was intense as our team. Something that actually got the crowd fired up.
Personally, I'd LOVE it if they played something like this:


Now THIS would be/is a joke.

That Maclemore hit is on it.

The whole Paul Allen thing is beyond douchy. Its embarassing, really, really, really embarassing.

Hell yeah. I liked it. A little AWB'ish with the brass accompaniment. The bass was jammin', for those of you too young to appreciate, think "No more tears" from Ozzy. And Paul, scratchin' that guitar like an itch, in time. Nice.
I think some here want to picture PA sliding accross a stage on his knees rippin' some nasty solo.

My only constructive critique would be with the percussions. Started out a little slow and out of time. Jmo.

For those too cool to be schooled, look at it this way. Do they ever play the intro tune through it's fruition? not sure myself as i haven't been to a game since 81', but i'm pretty sure they dont, and you never hear it watching the games on tv. So, if you can hear "Freak on" past the first 10-15 seconds, you ain't makin' enough noise anyhow. Baaad 12th man.

Guys, this is progress! PA's new Freak On song has understated energy and dynamic tension, and it is magnitudes better than Bittersweet Symphony in that regard. That has been the same-o-same-o since I don't know when. I like the song, but not as an intro to a football game. It's more suitable for a game of cricket or a chess match.

And NOBODY who likes Bittersweet Symphony as an intro song gets to say anything about Freak On being mellow.



BTW, for the record, my personal pick for an intro song is Battle Without Honor or Humanity by Tomoyasu Hotei.

Super Generic Sounding, but its cool, whatevz.

Never really paid attention to intro music anyway when I go to games, if you need the musical intro to hype you up to watch some Seahawks football you might need to check yoself before you wreck yoself.

That's not the point. We have BEEN using music that will put you to sleep. You don't want that. More energy is good.

I LOVE associating music with the Hawks. Bittersweet Symph makes me almost tear up every goddam time I hear it because it makes me think of 05.

I really hope this Macklemore song sticks and this Paul Allen song doesn't last long or is minimally used.

Okay....maybe I'm missing something here.....but they have already been playing that song all season.

This is not a new song.

The version they play is a bit more rockin.......but that's the intro song that's been played all year.

What time is it?

It's HAWK TIME !!!!

Ooh...voodoo chile...love it.
Bitter sweet is good; but that era is done. This team isn't that song.
I'm all about Seahawks reign...haha, jk. Paul's song is ok; but it absolutely does not pump me up, I can only imagine it wouldn't pump up the players either.
I think Pete/Paul should take a poll of the players and use that, after all they're who their trying to pump up...or maybe actually take a fan poll (as pumping up the fans is just as important); and actually do what the fans say.

Remember, this team is Paul's legacy. He knows that he could be gone any day if the cancer comes back yet again (as horrible as that sounds). He wants to show his love for the team and leave something behind in the way he knows. He brought in designers to create the greatest stadium, the best practice facilities, went and got great coaches, stuffed all the places with great technology. He loves music. He is creating a song for his team that he owns. Cool tribute. I am sure someday when Paul is gone everybody who is griping about this will say how cool it is that Paul expressed himself in the form of art that he knows best and left something to his team that was personal. He's not a big talker or a guy who gets real involved. The closest I've seen in emotion from the guy is when he made a brief appearance on the field after the NFCCG. I think it's cool that he's done something personal for a team that he clearly loves.


Ditto. I like the song, too. Cool intro.

It sounds fine IMO. It has a more swagger feel than anything to pump you up. I think that works with the swagger that the D had coming into the season.

I don't like it, sounds like a generic ACID/Fruity Loops track.

It isn't terrible, but is by no means amazing either. It's rather poorly produced, lacking in dynamic range. I expected better in the production department, given Paul Allen's deep pockets.

Personally, I have always thought Vader's cover of Raining Blood would make a great intro:





Also, if you could just get a track without the vocals, Morbid Angel's Dominate would also make a great intro track (One of my favorite drum beats):

Paul Allen, thank you for everything awesome that you've done for the Seahawks.

Now please go back and write something that DOESN'T sound like the theme for an 80's game show.

I consider myself somewhat of a music officionado, listening to everything from Classic, to Rock to Rap, and as amateur songwriting goes, this isn't too bad. It's not great, it will never make a radio playlist but it's pretty good, and to me, having it as the intro song points to the importance of a complete team atmosphere with the Seahawks.

The owner wants to be involved and has made great contributions to this team such as VMAC. Not to mention his support for Seattle with his tribute to Jimi Hendrix by building a museum. And his support of his country with the SpaceShipOne project.

He deserves to be recognized in some way and this is a great way to do it.

You know what? He owns the team and obviously he can do what he wants. He probably has people around him saying things like "Oh my gawd that freakin rocks!"

Is it to late to get "Bitterweet symphony" back?

Uh, this has been the intro song all year. If you don't like it, then you should have complained about it weeks ago, not when someone decides to make a post about it.

Macklemore. Meh. Our fan experience is created by the 12th man when it comes to noise. Don't try to train us like dogs to go na-na-na hey after a touchdown. Weak sauce.

I'll give Paul Allen's song a listen. Still like Bittersweet played too.

It was kind of generic, but without lyrics, and something that was just about catchy enough to play for an intro. Mr. Allen has done so much for this team, and it's cool to see him do this too. No other owner has done anything like it, and I'm fine with that.

As for Bittersweet Symphony, we all loved it because it reminded us of a very great Seahawks team. It was the association that did it, not the music. So in ten years, get back to me and see if this doesn't send shivers down your back when you hear it. No, it's not super awesome, but it doesn't completely suck either. And it could have some pretty stellar associations with it when it's all said and done.

Jamming with people is all about taking your moments and creating space for your fellow jammers. The best thing about this tune as an intro song for an NFL team is that it lays a beat to clap to and leaves space to make YOUR OWN NOISE when the players are introduced.

For anyone advocating death metal or Slayer-type music, and please don't take this personally, but oh my f&&^%$ing god, just go about enjoying that horribleness without trying to inflict it upon us, the unassuming public, thank you.
