30 Clubs in 30 Songs: Pittsburgh

I’ll admit that I do casually follow this team here. Sure, they’ve had a rich recent history of losing, but at this point they’re becoming a pretty fun team to watch… even if they currently have the worst record in the NL. I went to their ballpark last year, too (they lost)… and all the hype over that place is extremely well-deserved.

Lyrically… well, duh. A team name like theirs is gonna trigger lyrics like this. The music, however, was a bit of a quandary. I had no real idea what would work… until my friend Brandon told me that a subgenre called Pirate Metal exists. Armed with the latest of a gazillion revelations I’ve had since this project began, the music seemed to work itself out from there. I still don’t know what I’m doing on the accordion, but I took advantage of my non-abilities here. Quaff some grog and enjoy!


The proprietor of this blog wishes to apologize for the lack of “Pittsburghese” in this song.
