WTF or FTW: Fresno State meets Black Eyed Peas


Oy vey! Anybody heard the Y101-produced, Fresno State-centric version of the Black Eyed Peas abomination hit song “I Gotta Feeling.”

I think it’s definitely worth a new installment of WTF or FTW.

I can see why people would like it — it plays to hometown pride and does a fair job of being a top 40 fight song. But I’m sorry, I hate this song so much they could make it about tacos and I’d still want to rip my ears off my head.

My opinion doesn’t matter here, though. WTF or FTW is where you, our wise readers, get to decide between awesomeness and lameness. So check out the song and chime in.

LISTEN: Black Eyed Peas – I Gotta Feeling (Fresno State Version)

Voting Key:
WTF = What the [Fudgesicle], a.k.a. “What are you thinking?”
FTW = For the Win, a.k.a. “That idea is a victory for people everywhere.”

i just threw up in my mouth a little.

bradley says:

i have never liked anything the black eyed peas have done, and that opinion remains unchanged with this….song.

Abe Lopez says:

I’m all about Bulldog football and hometown pride, but that is definitely WTF.

Jenn says:

That’s a tough one…I’m really on the fence, but I’m going to give it a FTW…as an alumnus and “quasi” employee, that is probably the right thing to do.

Hootzie says:

Wow….big huge WTF. Just horrible.

Smokey Behr says:

Most of the locally-based, locally-promoting remixes just suck, and this is just another example. 100% WTF, 100% phail.

mdub420 says:

it would be FTW if the football team was able to win the big games.

Sarah says:

Are you kidding me? WTF…

FSDogs1 says:

I promise you this sounds much better on the loud speakers at Bulldog Stadium. The fans were pretty pumped hearing it during the beatdown of rival san jose state a couple weeks ago.

kristian says:

Heard Alexan Balekian play it on his sports show 105.9 fm. It’s awful. Could of chose another song

Marc M. says:

i’m a cal poly alum.

Meg says:

The original was already making my ears bleed. Definite WTF.

sir lancelot higgins says:

I would rather hear who let the dogs out over that song.

Social Media @ Fresno State says:

Ok, ok…it’s a little cheesy, but it’s also fun. I encourage silly mash-ups that support Fresno State spirit. What song do you think would deliver a FTW for Fresno and Fresno State?

Katie Johnson

I love it!

Jazz. Rock. Dig.

Tbone says:

Every time I hear it, I feel embarrassed and have to change the station. I don’t know why … it just makes me cringe.

DLR says:

ugh they made one of the corniest songs ever even cornier. This is seriously offensive for reasons I can’t explain.

Dog's Number 1 Fan says:

I think it’s fantastic. Like Social Media @ Fresno State said, it helps people get off their seats and cheer on the Dogs at Bulldog Staduim. Is it over played? Yes. Should it be on the radio like it is? No. But at the games…for sure FTW!
