Rocking It On Baseball Tonight

Obviously I wasn’t in the loop about this contest, but here’s my favorite band Seether, rocking out to the ESPN Baseball Tonight theme song.

According to ESPN, the shows producers have enlisted the help of notable musicians to provide their distinctive interpretations of the “Baseball Tonight” theme song during the 2011 season.

They have already featured these versions of the song on air and in the ESPN Music section, but now it’s time to vote for the best rendition. Here are the details:

For 11 weeks, we’ll have two artists square off in a poll for you to vote on. The winner will then face the next artist on the schedule and so on until the final week, when we’ll see who is the last one standing (full schedule at the bottom). Travis Barker ended Staind’s two-week winning streak in Week 3 to earn the right to take on Seether this week. So vote in the poll at the right of this page now through Aug. 25.

Here are the current results and upcoming match-ups:

Week 1 (July 29-Aug. 4): Staind vs. Good Charlotte
Week 2 (Aug. 5-11): Staind vs. Da’ Zoo
Week 3 (Aug. 12-18): Staind vs. Travis Barker
Week 4 (Aug. 19-25): Travis Barker vs. Seether
Week 5 (Aug. 26-Sept. 1): Week 4 winner vs. J. Cole
Week 6 (Sept. 2-8): Week 5 winner vs. Tom Morello
Week 7 (Sept. 9-15): Week 6 winner vs. Grupo Fantasma
Week 8 (Sept. 16-22): Week 7 winner vs. Steve Earle
Week 9 (Sept. 23-29): Week 8 winner vs. Zakk Wylde
Week 10 (Sept. 30-Oct. 6): Week 9 winner vs. John Pizzarelli
Week 11 (Oct. 7-13): Championship between Week 10 winner and Grace Potter & the Nocturnals

Seether now goes up against Travis Barker this week and all I have to say about that is… VOTE SEETHER!
