Some San Francisco radio stations are taking their support for the Giants to the next level. Stations like 104.5 KFOG and 96.5 KOIT have both announced on Twitter that they will be banning the song "Royals" by Lorde from their playlists, as the city's Giants start to go head-to-head with the Kansas City Royals in the World Series.
KFOG tweets that the station has declared itself a "Royals-free zone." In an interview with "NBC News," its program director said he chose to go with the ban to prevent sending "any positive vibes" to Kansas City fans, adding "no one is going to get hurt over it."
No offense, Lorde, but for the duration of the World Series, KFOG Radio will be a "Royals"-free zone. We're sure... http://t.co/7uvseCjb03— KFOGRadio (@KFOGRadio) October 17, 2014
Guess they won't be playing this version either..
Earlier this year, Lorde revealed that the Kansas City baseball team did partially inspire the hit song. She said she wrote "Royals" after seeing a vintage photo of the team's former star George Brett wearing his jersey and signing autographs.
