We were just talking about The Hold Steady recording a Twins-centric take on the old seventh-inning standard, and now the band’s been good enough to unleash it to the web. It’s just under two minutes, so don’t stretch too hard or you might miss it.

Enjoy.

    the beer swig at the end is perfect

  4. I love The Hold Steady but this is even worse than Roseanne Barr singing the national anthem.

    Wow, I didn’t think it was possible to like them less. Then I went and listened to this…

    Haters. Hate away.
    Craig is fun. We have fun with him. Go be dreary, but we will still be gigglin.
    Go Twins. It always is a shame when the Twins don’t win. La la.

    I like the steady. strong band great live but not a big fan of this diddy. good for them though that they have this opportunity. I’d love to take my garage band and jam anything at a brownies game.
