New Miami Marlins (Fan) Theme Song is Just Horrible UPDATED

Categories: Sports
Thumbnail image for marlinslogo.jpg
Who the hell is in charge of the Miami Marlins' latest creative decisions? First we got that logo and the uniforms. Then came that home run "thing." Now we've got what appears to be a brand new theme song that is predictably horrible. It sounds like a theme song for a pleasure cruise or a flea market or something. We're still trying to confirm whether or not it's an official team sanctioned tune. Updated: It's not official.



It's hard to decide what exactly is the worst lyric, but a strong case could be made for "Make a date with the Marlins -- those Miami Darlins."

Though, it's not so much the lyrics that are horrible (sports theme songs lyrics are almost always cheesy as hell), it's the Jimmy Buffet-esque music. It makes me think I'm stuck at a cabana bar with a bunch of sun burnt 50-something white people drinking frozen daiquiris and wearing straw hats and Tommy Bahama shirts. Well, at least there's probably conch fritters involved.

Update: We reached out to the team to get some confirmation. They never bothered getting back to us. Yahoo! Sports had more luck, and a rep said, "No it is not. Has nothing to do with us. Thanks"

Im embarrassed to go and hear this at a game,Along with the disgusting uniforms. I'll never buy any marlins memorabilia. If you want to goTo a circus,buy some marlin tickets.

This song is so pathetic that they removed almost all the comments on youtube because they were negative, and now to post it has to be approved, and they removed the "thumbs up or down" also because it was getting nothing but negative reviews. All those who reviewed it are friends of the creator of this terrible song.

 This song is horrible, and as gay as the new colors! This team is a joke, and it's all thanks to the owners who is a complete, and utter moron, and a criminal! To support Loria, and Samson is to support the Devil, and Hitler!

This stinks just like everything else the organization has done with this team.

I like it. I also hated the new uniforms when they first came out, but they've grown on me. And Miamenses all over the place are wearing the new hat. As with a lot of art, it's hated at first but the people embrace it in the end. Go MARLINS!

UpDate!  It's been Revealed that a Former Member of Sesame Street (Recently Released from the Miami Stockade where he was doing Time for a "Drug Bust") is the Author and Producer! When asked to Comment on the song he replied  "What would you expect from someone that constantly has another person's hand up their behind?" Stay tuned for more!

Last time I heard this kind of music was watching a video of a swingers orgy.

Wow! I think they forgot that the stadium was located in Little Havana, and for a second they thought it was in South Beach... Wow. Pitbull needs to start working on a new song that will make us sound like a real Major League tream, and not like some cruise line hoola hoop dancers...

David Samson just said on the radio that this is a fake.

The Song is supose to be fun and catchy and that it is, It's way better than Jimmy Buffet, the only reason Buffet got that song is because of his name, I hate Buffets's song!! it sucks but this one is GREAT! IT Serves it's purpose! A theme song does not have to be a mega death song, it's suppoe to reflect it's area we live in and this song has a tune that you end up singing in your head after you hear it.If this song is not the official song of the MARLINS IT SHOULD BE!!

no one said anything about Megadeath or that it sounds like a Jimmy Buffett song for that matter.  You took someone else's comment out of context.  But you're right, it's a song that will get stuck in your head... and you'll want to shoot yourself to end the misery!

Sounds like a Mega TV commercial for a local Honda dealership....  If you play it backwards you can hear David Samson calling us idiots.

you are stuck at a cabana bar with a bunch of sun burnt 50-something white people drinking frozen daiquiris and wearing straw hats and Tommy Bahama shirts - it's called Florida.

hating on the logo or song does not mean you have to automatically have to hate the team or the stadium, etc.  One has nothing to do with the other!  Kyle Munzenrieder got it right when he states, "makes me think I'm stuck at a cabana bar with a bunch of sun burnt 50-something white people drinking frozen daiquiris and wearing straw hats and Tommy Bahama shirts. "

He does not bash the team at all and is being critical of the creative team in charge of this unoriginality.  We can and should do better!

Yeah yeah yeah... let's rag on the new team.. the new team colors... the team logo.. and now the song.  We've heard it all before.  Go write about something else.  The team is looking good and the uniforms look GREAT.  The song is cute and catchy. Ever hear the phrase "If you don't have anything nice or constructive to say, don't say anything at all.."????

Yeah, it does sound like a Carnival cruise, reminds me of the Love Boat from the 70's & 80's. What can you do though ? Isn't the Marlins owner a cruise line kind of guy ?

I like it. What did you want to hear in a team theme song? Can you give an example of one you like? Isn't it inherent in these sort of songs that you're going to have a little "cheese"'in it. It is very Miami and I think that's the point. Typical though, I guess if you live down here you have to find something to complain about. Go Marlins!!

David Samson just called you dumb.  Have you purchased your seasons tickets yet?

Indeed I have. I don't hold athletes/managers/ownership accountable for their own stupidity. In my view, they're just as flawed as you or I. I attend games to see people do amazing things athletically. I could care less how much of a fool David Samson makes himself out to be sometimes. That's his issue with himself.

Your point of view and that's fine, but my point is... there is no originality whatsoever.  The song is a complete hack job.

wow... a blend of 80's Miami Vice, with elements of an old Dade County Youth Fair song, and a reminder of an old cruise commercial all wrapped up nice and tidy in this EPIC FAIL.  Song tries to be catchy but it's calypso cheesy and annoying!  Do Over Please!!
