Music legend and Cincinnatian Bootsy Collins showed his pride for the Bengals by releasing a remix of his classic song "Fear Da Tiger" just in time for the game against the Tennessee Titans last weekend.

And it must have been good luck because the Bengals beat the Titans and are now up against the Kansas City Chiefs in this coming weekend's AFC Championship game.

Collins revamped his 2005 "Fear Da Tiger" song with a new music video (released Jan. 21) featuring shots of Bengals fans, dancers and cheerleaders. The singer himself appeared decked out in an orange and white striped jacket, pants, Bengals jersey, top hat and his signature star sunglasses.

The whole song is Bengals and Cincinnati themed, from the costumes to the backdrops to the lyrics themselves.

Bengals-heavy lyrics include:

  • "Fear the tigers, fear the tigers, cause we're the tigers."

  • "We're ready to rumble, we're ready to rumble, 'cause we king of the jungle."

  • "Who dey, who dey, who dey, who dey think they gonna beat them Bengals."

The 2005 track was also dubbed the "unofficial theme song of the 2005 Cincinnati Bengals."

Born William Earl "Bootsy" Collins, the legendary musician, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer and Cincinnati native first rose to prominence with James Brown in the 1970s, and later was the bassist for the funk collective Parliament-Funkadelic.
