It sucked. Borderline embarrassing. Check out more reax from the #1 Prince fan website. Sample comment:

“Someone needs to tell Prince what a “fight song” is.”

Lyrics of the song after the jump.

Prince’s Minnesota Vikings Fight Song: Purple and Gold

the veil of the sky draws open
the roar of the chariots touch down
we r the ones who have now come again
and walk upon water like solid ground
as we approach the throne we won’t bow down
this time we won’t b denied

raise every voice and let it b known
in the name of the purple and gold

we come in the name of the purple and gold
all of the odds r in r favor
no prediction 2 bold
we r the truth if the truth can b told
long reign the purple and gold

the eyes say ready 4 battle
no need 4 sword in hand
we r all amped up like a rock n roll band
ready 2 celebrate every score
ready 2 fight the elegant war
ready 2 hear the crowd roar

that’s what we came 4
and so much more
in the name of the purple and gold

r spirits may b tired
r bodies may b worn
but since this day is r destiny
r history – that’s y we must b
4ever strong as the wind that blows the Vikings’ horn
in the name of the purple and gold

UPDATE (10:07pm ET): A Minnesota media source tells me the song will air on KMSP-TV at 9:43pm CT. I was also told the song “was not great.”

KMSP-TV reports tonight: “It’s confirmed- Robyne Robinson has the exclusive unveiling of Prince’s ‘Vikings Fight Song’- tonight on FOX 9 News at 9.

Perhaps Prince was inspired by Brett Favre’s “game blouse” this season.
