Purple Pain -- Prince Releases Vikings Fight Song

1/22/2010 6:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Prince -- the artist formally known as "talented" -- has reportedly released a snippet from the new fight song he wrote for the Minnesota Vikings. Unique ... is one way people are describing it.



Let's put it this way -- if you're the one guy who liked the T-Pain version of the Miami Dolphins fight song ... you're gonna love this.

As a Minnesota Native I drive by Paisley Palace (Prince’s Studio) and Winter Park (Training Field for Vikings) every day on my commute to work and I think this song is a disgrace. It makes me feel like I am at church. Maybe I can get the choir to sing it on Sunday before the game! Either way it is going to be a good hard game. GO VIKINGS!

Let's be honest about what this really is: music for a Jehovah's Witness gathering with different lyrics.

I don't think it's premature to say his musical talent has now fallen victim to his wacko faith.

Extremely idiosyncratic, some might say. WTF?, say others. And it is most definitely out-there. Did he actually present this as a "fight song?" Or is it just his trippy impression of one? Either way, we all know that Prince is talented. That said, I don't think Viking fans are going to take this one into their hearts.

Just a snippet, right? Maybe that's the solemn, alma mater-like intro. Perhaps it gets mad funky right after that.

I thought that Pwince was a Viking fan, so why the Viking funeral march?
Stimulating? NO!!!!

Don't have such a knee-jerk reaction, everyone!

Yes, it's unusual. But it's pure Prince. I think it's great.

(Then again, I'm a musician who's never even been to a football game, so I might be unusual too.)

The song isn't that great, but you CANNOT say that Prince is "formerly" talented. He is one of the most talented musicians of all time. The writer must be clueless when it comes to music. No matter what genre of music you prefer, YOU cannot deny that Prince is an extreme talent.
