Sick Puppies have joined forces with ESPN/ESPN+ to help launch the NHL season with their cover of Paul Oakenfold’s “Ready Steady Go.” The track will be featured in promos on various platforms until the end of the year.
Kevin Wilson, creative music director for ESPN, commented:
“‘Ready Steady Go’ is a classic hype track and having the Sick Puppies do their own heavy take on it fits so great to amp up the start of the NHL season.”
Sick Puppies continued:
“For those who haven’t heard Paul Oakenfold’s song ‘Ready Steady Go’, it’s a classic tune. When the opportunity came to be able to put our spin on it, it was a no-brainer. The NHL screams fast, aggressive and punchy rock, so we took that energy and recorded it with that attitude. ESPN brings the rock! We are in good company with their exceptional music team and can’t wait to watch this hockey season unfold”.
“Check out my song ‘Ready Steady Go’ that is going to be used for the start of the NHL season on ESPN and will run for the rest of the year. My friends Sick Puppies did a kickass rock version of it! Good luck to all the teams this season. Also BIG thanks to everyone at ESPN for pushing it out there.”
