After being catapulted back into relevance by The Sopranos' finale, Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" was soon adopted by the Los Angeles Dodgers as a late-inning rally song.

Hilariously, it turns out Journey singer Steve Perry is a Giants fan -- and he hated this. "I really wish we'd have hijacked it first. I think the song is about hope and power, and it's working for them, damn it," he told the Chronicle.

Well, in a way, the Giants have finally "hijacked" the song. But not a version Perry may enjoy. This version mentions a Rally Thong, after all.

Local musician Ashkon and the production team at White Collar Brawler teamed to create the self-proclaimed anthem, which contains lyrics such as the following: I had faith and I had hope. Thankfully the Padres choked. Even better, maybe it was the Rally Thong.

The bandwagon tour continues -- and will hit fever pitch if Madison Bumgarner can take down the Braves in Atlanta today.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
