No one makes motivational rock anymore.

@1: Trying hard to make a "Bottom Gun" joke here. I got nothing.

We took it VERY seriously when it was theme song to the "speed skate" portion of the evening. http://www.cityofwellman.com/wp-content/…

Well, Bill Walsh played "This Is It" to the 49ers in the locker room of their first Superbowl and the Niners won, so that must have been a serious song.

One way to figure out if this is a "serious" song or not might be to think of a serious artist it might be plagiarizing. Like how the band America pretends to be Neil Young on a "Horse With No Name." I have been thinking about it, but due to the extended lyrical minimalism of the final minute and a half, I can only think of Neil Young's "T-Bone." (An "A T-Bone In The Danger Zone" mash up would be mashed potatoes & gravy.)

You never say hello to you until you get it on the red line overload.
