Bengals Back Off Usage Of Katy Perry Song After Fan Complaints

The Bengals decided that Katy Perry's song "Roar" will "no longer be featured as prominently" as planned during their home games "after a social-media backlash" following the team's announcement last week that it would use the song at Paul Brown Stadium. Fans "took to Twitter to complain" before last week's game against the Steelers "was even over" (WALL STREET JOURNAL, 9/21). The Bengals "subtly worked in the instrumental part" of the song during an injury timeout of today's game against the Packers (TWITTER.com, 9/22).
