ong info

There are two main versions of the song know as the "World Champion Red Sox Anthem" and the "Family Values Mix", with lyrics parallel to each other. There is also an instrumental version.

The World Champion Red Sox Anthem is dedicated to the Boston Red Sox on their winning of the 2004 World Series. The majority of the song humorously pokes fun at the New York Yankees's loss, rather than the Red Sox victory. The song features chants of, "Yankees Suck!"

The Family Values Mix is about a young man (lead singer Jason Phelps) and his Christmas break that he spends with his somewhat dysfunctional family. He complains that it's so boring and he's sick of all of them.

Popularity

The Red Sox Anthem was a hit in Boston, while the Family Values version received heavy spins on Top 40 radio. Both songs were #1 request on various radio stations and #1 single in sales in Boston.
