It would be no more fitting than being played at all home games and should be (IMO) the Steelers theme song. Whoever in charge of the music there is terrible and has got to be ancient (in terms of age), stubborn, and set in his or her ways. I'm a season ticket holder (for 7 years) & I've heard the same crap songs year after year after year and wondered why -at times- a more appropriate, more current song or songs were not played yet?? There may be 2 songs that are okay/decent out of them all, but many of them I have no idea why they play them religiously unless they want to please all of the white DVE (WDVD) fans and/or redneck hillbillies that pack the crowd. I hope that this song becomes the exception to this as this song is definitely meant to be the Steelers theme song, it's that catchy and good, and it is coming from/made by/produced by a worldwide-recognized talented rap artist (he is more underground but if you are from Pittsburgh, chances are you know this song or at least have heard the name Wiz Khalifa before). It is not the stereotypical "gangster rap" song, I'd be willing to bet that many of those [ppl] who cannot stand rap music would not mind this song & many of those people would end up liking/enjoying [it] their first rap song (because of what it represents).
The Steelers are well aware of the song as they had Wiz, himself sing the song before the 2010 AFCC game in the south endzone.
