Oh No You Didn't: Mercs 2 Song Plays as Skins Hold Off Eagles

December 22, 2008 -

Sunday was a tough day for Eagles fans (like yours truly).

The Washington Redskins stymied the Eagles' offense all day long and led 10-3 late in the fourth quarter. As the final seconds ticked off the clock, Eagles receiver Reggie Brown was stuffed at the goal line by a pair of Washington defenders.

And what song was blaring over the public address system at Washington's Fedex Field?

Oh No You Didn't.

The Wojahn Brothers tune is the theme for EA's hit Mercenaries 2: World in Flames.

Cinema Blend, which picked up on the use of the Mercs 2 song, reports:

It's a tough song to describe; essentially it's a rap with piano accompaniment and a choir-style chorus. Somehow, all of these strange elements come together into a catchy masterpiece... it's pretty awesome that a song created for a video game's gotten this sort of mainstream attention.

Ah, if only I took an interest in American Football. Or sport in general.

So I DID hear that song!

I'm a big Giants fan myself but even I felt the "ouch" of that one play (the one where the Eagles caught the ball and just missed the goal line).

Full O' Win.

Goddamn right.

Now if only they hadn't choked the previous 5 games.

Re: Oh No You Didn't: Mercs 2 Song Plays as Skins Hold Off

Nah, a violent game wouldn't upset the Football crowd. Now if there was even a hint of nudity in it, then everyone would be up in arms. Superbowl 38 anyone?

I've heard it a couple of times at the end of games (can't remember which) when it's close and the home team pulls out a win. 

Great song!

They also played it at the Linc during the Pittsburgh game. They made a big stop and then it came on. I laughed my ass off.

Re: Oh No You Didn't: Mercs 2 Song Plays as Skins Hold Off

At least the Saints whipped the Lions yesterday 42-7, knocking Detroit to 0-15.

Now the Eagles have to beat Dallas next week and have Tampa Bay lose to Oakland to make the playoffs.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Hornets, Jack Thompson can geaux chase a chupacabra.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Pelicans. Solidarity for the Saints = No retreat, no surrender. 2013 = Saints' revenge on the NFL. Even through the darkest days, this fire burns always.
