Stadium Love by Metric

Wanna make a bet
We'll be neck and neck
Taking off the gloves

Spider Vs Bat
Tiger Vs Rat
Rabbit Vs Dove

Wanna make a bet
Odds are neck and neck
Taking off the gloves

Spider Vs Bat
Tiger Vs Rat
Owl Vs Dove

Every living thing
Pushed into the ring
Fight it out
To wow the crowd
Guess you thought
You could just watch
No one's getting out
Without stadium love

Wanna make a trade
Couger for a snake
Wanna fall in love

Wanna make a deal
Angel Vs Eel
Owl Vs Dove

Every living thing
Pushed into the ring
Fight it out
To wow the crowd
Guess you thought
You could just watch
No one's getting out
Without stadium love

We got stadium love

FOR SOME REASON THIS MAKES ME THINK OF THE MOVIE CLASH ROYAL. CAME WAY BEFORE HUNGER GAMES BUT WITH THE SAME PREMISE. BUNCH OF SCHOOL KIDS PUT INTO A STADIUM AND HAVE TO FIGHT TO THE DEATH. EACH KID GOT A WEAPON ASSIGNED TO THEM. SOME KIDS GOT DEADLY WEAPONS LIKE A GUN. SOME KIDS, NOT SO MUCH. ONE KID GOT A POT LID.

Wow. This video is like the perfect parody of a stupid music video. Like you could put it on the Simpsons as "modem music video". The song too is so typical of some silly song that you could make fun of. Well I can't say much else about this one. Except that of you were in battle royal you would be the kid with the pot lid and I would be the kid with the m-16. Man. They should have had a battle royal at fchs when we were there. It would have been glorious.

Yeah, this video is rather silly

As far as all the match-ups in the song, they don't seem "neck and neck" to me

Bat could take care of spider, although I have seen those bird eating spiders, and they have a special place in my nightmares

Tiger crushes Rat, unless there's some thorn pulling

Rabbit would be picked apart from above by dove

Owl would crush dove, because Owl is badass

Cougar and snake makes me think of an older lady going after a young buck who turns out to be an old man in disguise

& finally Angel vs eel, cmon who can beat an angel?

It seems to me that if you wanted a battle royale, at least make the fights interesting

And if we were in the battle = Berv would get an m-16, Chris gets the pot lid

So I'd probably get something even more useless like a typewriter

A typewriter! man that would be awesome. Although a typewriter is exactly what the dude in misery used to kill that crazy lady.

As for angels. In every cartoon I ever saw the devil always kicked the ass of the angel. The angel would be all "oh don't do that Sylvester that would not be kind." Then the devil says "Shut the hell up" and drops an anvil on the angel. Then Sylvester goes and gets his ass handed to him by Tweety. Such is life.
