When ownership decided to name the team “Thunder” there were mixed reviews. I’m not a fan of the singular team name idea, but some really liked the possibilities it created with marketing, game entertainment and puns (you know, Thunderpuns). The team’s name, logo and colors were announced with the song “Thunderstruck” playing overhead and since then, some variation of the song has stayed with the team.
And you can expect for the next however many years of the Thunder’s existence, “Thunderstruck” will be part of it. (I truly think part of the reason the team was named that was because of that dumb song.)
Well, now there’s a new song. Sub out Thunderstruck. It’s time to get Thunderbusted.
