Chris Stapleton & Snoops ‘In the Air Tonight’ Monday Night Football Theme

  • ESPN debuted its new Monday Night Football anthem last night, and it was the perfect hype song for football players and fans.
  • The MNF song features Chris Stapleton and Snoop Dogg, reimagining “In the Air Tonight” by Phil Collins. Drummer Cindy Blackman Santana delivers the song’s famous drum solo.
  • The new theme premiered on ESPN ahead of the week 2 games, where the New Orleans Saints beat the Carolina Panthers 20-17. 
  • The Steelers beat the Cleveland Browns in Pittsburgh 26 to 22.
  • The song will serve as the network’s Monday Night Football anthem all season long.
  • The NFL held off on its new theme song for one week, declining to play it before the Jets-Bills because the game was played on the 22nd anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, SBNation report.
