CLEVELAND — While "Hang on Sloopy" is typically associated with Ohio State, it's also been a staple of Cleveland Browns games.
Or at least it was.
Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, the Browns' official Twitter account posted a poll asking fans to vote on which song will be played at the end of the third quarter during Cleveland's home opener against the New York Jets on Sunday. The poll indicates that the Browns will no longer be playing "Hang on Sloopy" ahead of the start of the fourth quarter, bringing an end to one of the franchise's most polarizing in-game experiences at FirstEnergy Stadium.
The four options for Browns fans to vote on for Sunday's sing-along song are as follows:
- "Wonderwall" by Oasis
- "Tiny Dancer" by Elton John
- "Chicken Fried" by Zac Brown Band
- "Uptown Girl" by Billy Joel
Fans can vote on which song they want to sing along to on the Browns' official website. According to the team, the promotion, which comes in conjunction with Socios.com, will continue through the entirety of the 2022 season.
"Along with Socios.com, we’re putting YOU in control of an important moment during our home opener against the Jets and throughout the rest of the season," the Browns wrote on their official team website. "It’s simple: Pick the song you think will get the most fans standing and singing along between the third and fourth quarters. The song with the most votes wins and will be pitted against three new options for the next home game!"
