Hank Williams Jr. Officially Dropped From Monday Night Football | Music News | Rolling Stone.

That’s right folks, Hank Williams Jr. has been dropped from Monday Night Football – at least the theme song, All My Rowdy Friends, which he wrote has. The reason is because of his comparison of House Speaker John Boehner, a Republican, hanging out with President Barack Obama as “Hitler playing golf with [Israeli Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu.

I think that ESPN did the right thing because that is pretty offensive to Jewish people. If they were to keep that song as the anthem, they could not only lose in the ratings but also have a few legal battles as well.
