SOMETHING EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE “HEY” SONG

You know the “Hey!” song that’s been played at pretty much every single sporting event over the past 15 years or so? You know, “Rock N Roll Part 2?” This song?

The song was written and performed by Gary Glitter, a guy who’s known primarily for just two things. The first, obviously, is that he created a song that’s become embedded into sports culture, a song that anyone who’s every been to a sporting event has undoubtedly heard. The second, which is a fact known by far fewer people, is that Gary Glitter was imprisoned for possessing and distributing child pornography. You see, Gary Glitter had a lot of kiddie porn on his computer – a shitload of it, actually. Thousands of pictures. Thousands.

So the next time you’re at a sporting event and the home team goes on a big run, and “Rock N Roll Part 2″ is pumped through the arena or stadium speakers, and families are gleefully clapping and singing along at the top of their lungs, just know that it was a pedophile who was responsible for uniting all those sports fans in song.
