The NFL Network will broadcast it’s first Thursday night  game of the season on September 13th featuring the Chicago Bears taking on the Green Bay Packers.Fans of both teams get to welcome the season with Cee Lo Green, who has been tapped to do the NFL Thursday night anthem. The piece runs 90 seconds and is set to the tune of the punk classic “Blitzkrieg Bop” by The Ramones.

Cee Lo is  a fan of football so it was easy for him to take on the task of writing “fanthem” to get fans fired up for some football!

“I don’t like golfing/I don’t like tennis/I don’t like anything/Just football,” sings Cee Lo. “The crowd’s going crazy/We love football.”

“I really love my football,” The Voice coach said in a statement.  “I’m honored to help create such a historic, pop-culture moment and interactive fan experience.”

Each week fans from the opposing teams will join Cee Lo in the game opening anthem. Fans who want to submit videos should visit
