Vote For Grupo Fantasma!
Help Nat Geo Music's Own Grupo Fantasma Win At ESPNby Tom Pryor
Love Grupo Fantasma? Then give them your vote today over at ESPN's Music blog, where they're up against the very worthy J. Cole in a smackdown that will determine which musical act's version of the "Baseball Tonight" theme song reigns supreme.
Here's how ESPN put it: "ESPN enlisted the help of notable musicians to provide their distinctive interpretations of the "Baseball Tonight" theme song during the 2011 season. We've already featured these versions of the song on air and in the ESPN Music section; now we want you to help us crown the best version of them all.
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).
Rapper and producer J. Cole notched his second consecutive victory by eliminating guitarist Tom Morello. Now Cole takes on Latin music band Grupo Fantasma in Week 7. So vote in the poll at the right of this page now through Sept. 15."
That's right - Grupo is up against a stiff competitor, who already knocked out the former Rage Against The Machine mastermind and can use all the votes they can get for their sizzling, Latin version of "Baseball Tonight".
