The World Ski Championship's Official Song Is Just Plain Cheesy

No offense to singer Steve Azar, but the official song of the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships just might be the cheesiest song we've ever heard. Official songs are never award-winning masterpieces, but this one sounds more like a country-western ballad to America than an homage to the adrenaline-fueled sport of ski racing. When we think of ski racing, we expect amazing feats of high-speed athleticism and cringeworthy crashes, not snooze-inducing lyrics. We want a song that ski racers from around the world can sing together in drunken celebration.
