Your Latest ESPN Musical Artist To Be Featured Is.......

Tuesday, May 20, 2008


That's right folks! It's none other than the rock supergroup 3 Doors Down!!! You know the band that brought you Kryptonite and ummm....that other song! The played a couple of diddies from the group during last night's Baseball game, but don't look for the fun to stop there. How about we feature their music for the entire month of June!

Beginning this week and continuing throughout the month of June, ESPN will be complementing its productions with new music from the multi-platinum selling rock band, 3 Doors Down. As part of a unique agreement with their label, Universal Republic Records, ESPN will be able to feature five songs from the band’s new self-titled album "3 Doors Down", and two songs from their ground-breaking debut album, "The Better Life", in a variety of live event and studio productions such as NASCAR, MLB, College World Series and SportsCenter. Music selections will include the first single from their new release, "It's Not My Time," and other tracks such as “Train” and “It’s The Only One You’ve Got.”

“ESPN approaches their craft with the same kind of enthusiasm and respect for their fans as we do,” stated 3 Doors Down frontman, singer/songwriter Brad Arnold.
I don't really have a problem with 3DD, but a month of the same songs over and over might be a little much. Especially when you try to get people like Jon Miller to try to use the phrase "dropping" as in their album is dropping on such and such a date....

Don't knock it. 3 Doors Down are pretty good. I got their last disc, 17 days, for my birthday and before I listened to it I shared your opinion. The disc, though, is suprisingly good.

And it's certainly a better choice than Johnny Cougar or others I could name.

Not to mention that Miller botch not only the name of the song ("It's NOT My Time") and the album (its going to be self-titled). Attaboy.

He did say the album was self titled, although it was a bit confusing, he said the band was Three Doors Down and then said the album of the same name.

But anyway, a full month? Effing A! As if i needed another reason not to watch ESPN.

These guys suck. Could ESPN not get Sister Hazel or some other band from the 90's?

Seven Mary Three wasn't returning phone calls.

I enjoyed it when they played bits of Jimmy Eat World's album "Clarity" during intros/outros for NCAA bball games this year.

I meant "Chase This Light," not "Clarity."

While 3 Doors Down isn't my favorite group, they are pretty good and they actually have more songs than Kryptonite that were played over and over and over again (see "When I'm Gone" and "Here Without You". Sorry to disagree with you AA, but they have been a mainstay in rock for the past decade. And will somebody please teach Miller how to read? As Anon at 10:29 said, the song is "It's Not my Time" and not "It's Now my Time".
P.S. Jon Miller, never say "dropping" like that again. That was scary...

You have every right to disagree my friend and I don't think they are necessarily bad, but a month's worth of songs is overkill.

May 20, 2008, 4:24:00 PM  

I'm with AA. I hadn't heard of them since Kryptonite, and was damn glad of it.

But yeah, Miller can't read though he said the song was "It's Now My Time" instead of "Flaming Pile of Garbage."
