As animals go, birds don’t have the toughest reputation — but that’s because people aren’t considering talons, beaks, Angry Birds, and bird flu. It’s just that tough-bird spirit that soulpatched Baltimore native Mike Ruocco has tried to capture in his new Orioles/Ravens fight song, “Bad Birds.”
According to his website, Ruocco “started his first band at the age of 12, was signed to a major label by 19 and soon after was touring the world with the likes of KISS, Alice Cooper and Daughtry. He’s played in stadiums and heard several of his songs dominate rock radio.” We’re not sure whether this sports ballad will, um, dominate rock radio, but we wish Ruocco — and those bad birds — all the best.
