The 1980s were good for a lot of things, but there was perhaps no greater innovation of that decade than football teams recording theme songs. "The Super Bowl Shuffle" is widely considered the high point, but what was the genre's nadir?
If you said, "Let's Ram It" by the 1986 L.A. Rams, you would be wrong because "Let's Ram It" by the 1986 L.A. Rams is phenomenal. This documentary footage shows the 1986 L.A. Rams during the making of the music video for "Let's Ram It," and it is as good as you could imagine documentary footage of the 1986 L.A. Rams shooting a music video for a song called "Let's Ram It" could be.
And how did it all turn out? Have a look:
It's clear that "Let's Ram It" is supposed to be tongue-in-cheek, and if there's one thing that is guaranteed to earn juvenile chuckles, it is a transparent sexual double entendre. Kudos to you, 1986 L.A. Rams. It's a shame "Let's Ram It" was not the blockbuster smash it deserved to be.
