Black is white, white is back, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria ... Bootsy Collins has written a song about the Cincinnati Bengals, featuring several Bengals . There's a long history of successful sports teams recording songs, though we don't quite remember one happening so early in the year, from a franchise as historically inept as the Cincinnati Bengals.

Bootsy has actually written two songs: Bigg Cats and Fear Da Tiger. Things that are funny: Bootsy name-checking "Eric Steinbach!" Nothing says funk like an offensive lineman from Iowa.


Take a listen, and try to keep your brain from dissolving on the spot.
