Fans were anything but thrilled with Carrie Underwood’s new “Sunday Night Football” theme song and they held nothing back in letting her know.
After performing the NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” theme since 2013, and singing “Oh, Sunday Night” since 2014, the country music star released a new song that left fans disappointed and angry.
Game on! #SNF is back!

The song “Game On” debuted before the Week 1 matchup between the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers with Underwood singing “Game On” instead of “Ohhhhhhh Sunday night,” sending fans into a meltdown over missing the familiar line.
I love Carrie Underwood with every fiber of my being but what is this new SNF song?

New Carrie Underwood Sunday Night Football song review
—Sang “Sunday night” on multiple occasions
—Did not sing “ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh” in advance of saying that it was Sunday night

Apparently not singing “Ohhhhhhh” before belting out “Sunday night” was too much for many fans who called for the singer and NBC to bring back the previous theme song.
Seems NFL players may not be the only ones protesting this season as viewers and fans of Underwood were loud and clear about their feelings.
“My ears are taking a knee in protest of Carrie Underwood SNF theme songs! This years is the worse!!! #NFLSunday,” one fan said.

This season’s Carrie Underwood song is even closer to making me feel like I live in an actual parody than last season’s Carrie Underwood song

If there’s any reason to boycott the NFL, it’s because of that atrocious Carrie Underwood intro song. As a nation, we deserve better. #NFLSunday

Not all was lost, however, as some fans did enjoy the “fun new song” and thought it was time to “change things up” a bit.
I for one like the new song. Anything you sing works, Carrie.

Oh Sunday Night sounded like a Christmas Carol. New song is a big improvement.

What the hell is everybody crying about? “Game On” is a very rugged “bring it on” song. Perfect for football. Carry Underwood is Such a beautiful person. Everybody has to find something wrong with everything. Just enjoy the damn game. A song won’t make any difference. Geez.

I loved the new theme and sometimes it;s good to change things up and if the powers that be accepted it before Football started what;s the gripe about I loved it when saids Game On because it’s great the Game is on give it a chance
