1980 World Series Diss Track: Phillies vs. Royals
In the 1980 World Series, the Philadelphia Phillies defeated the Kansas City Royals in six games (4-2). It was no doubt because of this song, which, according to blogs such as this one, stormed Philly radio that year. Having defeated the Dodgers last night to increase their lead in the NLCS playoffs to 3-1, the Phillies are one step closer to the big casino. Good for them. Here in KC, it can at least be enjoyed as a cathartic Royals diss track. Or you can just laugh at it, because it’s a pretty dorky song and namechecks George Brett.
