$13 Premium Gets You A Dodger Stadium Ticket And Bleeding Eardrums

Why pay $10 for an Infield Reserve (value) ticket, when you can spend $23 and get kicked in the balls get a Nickelback album? That's right, the Dodgers opted to join forces with arguably the worst band of all time in order to try and sell more tickets. Good luck with that:

LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Dodgers and Grammy Award-winning rock band Linkin Park will offer a ticket package, a first-of-its-kind for the Dodgers and Linkin Park, that includes a game ticket (June 29 vs. NYM, 7:10 p.m.) and a digital copy of the band’s fifth studio album “LIVING THINGS” out on June 26 on Machine Shop Recordings/Warner Bros.

The $23 package includes an Infield Reserve ticket and upon purchase, fans will receive a redemption code and a digital copy of “LIVING THINGS” will be available for redemption starting on June 26. [...] Friday Night Fireworks will be set to a Linkin Park soundtrack that night as part of the partnership.

I'm going to the game on the 30th. Thank God.

Wait, is Nickelback the worst band of all time or Linkin Park? Because I hear there is a rapist in Linkin Park.

What, not waiting for Sunday and the Hello Kitty Bobblehead? I kid, but the Dodgers can only cater to us Die-Hards so much. They need to find ways to bring in more fans. So between Hello Kitty, Linkin Park, and Star Wars, I think this weekend is going to be pretty awesome and well rounded...

Because nothing say "hardcore" like a band named after a park in Santa Monica.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Science has definitively proven that Creed was the worst band of all time, however.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

"We Built This City" automatically makes Jefferson Starship the worst band ever.

Paul said...

Flaming Menudos would never go out like that...depending on the offer.

Steve Sax said...

I can't find a link online, but the Rolling Stone one-paragraph review of Johnny Hates Jazz always made me crack up. Worthy of a candidacy for Worst Band Ever.

MR.F said...

Marla, you are lucky to think that Jefferson Starship is the worst band ever.

Paul said...

Great now I have that fuckin song in my head. Someone get me a shotgun.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Though terrible, I wouldn't consider Starship even as bad as Korn.

Paul said...

I would rate Train below both.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I concur.

This little diversion has resulted in my tragic acquisition the knowledge that Stryper still exists.

Hideo Nomo said...

What...happened here? Was this a cut and paste from an old rant about Nickelback?

Also, for the record, I wish I could buy instrumental versions of Linkin Park albums. They fuck it all up when they open their mouths to "sing."

Franklin Stubbs said...

Hey, I'd much rather discuss shitty bands than the Dodger's suckitude.

"Damn kids these days, with the hair and the clothes, listening to Nickel Park!!"---Sax

Stubbs' Moment of Clarity: All shit bands are secretly the same band.

Somehow, Nickeldick is a very rich and successful band. According to their wikipedia page they have sold over 50 million albums and they were the 2nd best selling foreign act in the U.S., behind the Beatles, in the 2000's.
