Hank Jr. Readies Fans For The Big Game In Rare ‘Monday Night Football Boogie’ Promo


If there’s one thing that all athletes can agree on, it’s that preparing for a game is very important. Each player has their own pre-game routine, which more than likely includes listening to music that pump them up.

Fans are the same way; we like to be pumped up to watch a sporting event, especially football games. For over 20 years, country legend Hank Williams Jr. sang the introduction to Monday Night Football and for most of those years, he sang a parody of his hit song “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming over Tonight” and changed the words to “All My Rowdy Friends Are Here on Monday Night”.

One year, they decided to forgo the “Rowdy Friends” angle and wrote an entirely new song called “Monday Night Football Boogie”. Although they only used it for the 1991 season, it was a toe-tapping tune that got everyone in the mood to watch some football.

Famed football commentators Al Michaels, Frank Gifford, and Dan Dierdorf all made appearances and got in on the fun by playing marching band instruments!

The video featured some hard tackles, great plays, touchdown celebrations, and lots and lots of enthusiastic fans.

Watch the upbeat “Monday Night Football Boogie” below.
