If you can stand it, this is the Reds 2009 anthem

The song is called ‘Paint the Town Red’ and is by The Hotcakes. It’s not really a baseball song and I doubt that this group who lucked into landing a contract and all the exposure for the song even know what a baseball looks like.

But this is the song you’re going to hear blaring over the loud speakers at GABP this spring and summer. Back when things were still new and glossy at the ballpark we had songs written by Blessed Union of Souls. How the mighty have fallen.
