SF Stations Ban Lorde Tune
They’ll never be “Royals.” Two Bay Area radio stations have banned Lorde’s hit in support of their home team until after the World Series. Lorde says the song — Kansas City’s unofficial anthem — was inspired by a National Geographic photograph of George Brett, who led the Royals to their only World Series win in 1985. In response, Kansas City’s KZPT will play “Royals” every hour in the run-up to tonight’s series opener. They don’t care that the Giants aren’t caught up in their love affair.
