New Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly has yet to coach a game or even oversee a practice in full pads. But he's already made an impact, at least with information-starved reporters, with his CRAZY SCIENCE IDEAS like custom smoothies, "anaerobic" practices, and the unfortunate end of Taco Tuesdays.
Chip's latest attempt to blind us with science? A 24-song playlist that blared during the team's recent minicamp practices. Call it scientific Jock Jams. Here's the list:
Young Dro, “On Fire”
Van Halen, "Panama"
Ozzy Osbourne, “Crazy Train”
Duran Duran, “Hungry Like The Wolf”
Kanye West, “Stronger”
Scorpions, “Rock You Like A Hurricane”
2pac, "California Love"
The Wanted, “Chasing The Sun”
Nicki Minaj, “Pound The Alarm”
Pitbull, “Get It Started”
Jennifer Lopez, “Goin’ It”
Flo Rida, “Good Feeling”
Dropkick Murphys, “I’m Shipping Up To Boston”
David Guetta, “Turn Me On”
Nicki Minaj, “Starships”
Haddaway, “What Is Love?”
Tiesto, “Chasing Summers”
Queen, “We Will Rock You”
XV, “Foreign Exchange Student”
LMFAO, “Party Rock”
Icona Pop, “I Love It”
Swedish House Mafia, “Don’t You Worry Now”
It's an interesting combination of classic rock (AC/DC, Ozzy, Scorpions), current pop/dance (Pitbull, Swedish House Mafia), and ESPN Jock Jams (the inexplicable presence of "What Is Love?") But is it SCIENTIFIC? Reporters asked Kelly:
“There’s a lot of science behind it but I’ve got 12 minutes left in this thing so I can’t really get into the details of it but there’s some science behind it,” Kelly told reporters after practice. “We’ve used it for a while.”
There you have it. Van Halen + Flo Rida + two Nicki Minaj songs + something called 'XV' equals SCIENCE!!! But where was this song?
