Tube Tops 2000

Tube Tops 2000 is a punk rock supergroup that covered Gary Glitter's classic rock hit "Rock and Roll, Part 2".

The band comprises Eric Erlandson (Hole), Melissa Auf der Maur (Hole, The Smashing Pumpkins), Clem Burke (Blondie), Pat Fear (White Flag), Rodney Bingenheimer (KROQ DJ) and Kathy Valentine (The Go-Go's). The band only released the one song, recorded for a glam rock tribute compilation Blockbuster: A 70's Glitter Glam Rock Experience, released in January 2001. [1]

Since 2006, it has been the replacement for the Kansas City Chiefs' touchdown celebration after the NFL asked teams to stop playing Glitter's version following his conviction on child molestation charges.[2]

The version of the song was introduced in Chiefs' games in the 2006 NFL season following a vote on the "new Chiefs touchdown song". The vote originally ended with P.O.D.'s "Boom" as the winner, but fans protested at the result and requested a new band to play "Rock and Roll, Part 2" so that the tradition of their "We're gonna beat the hell outta you!" chant could continue.

Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs are a professional American football team based in Kansas City, Missouri. Chiefs compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the league's American Football Conference (AFC) West division. The team was founded in 1960 as the Dallas Texans by businessman Lamar Hunt and was a charter member of the American Football League (AFL). (They are not associated with the NFL Dallas Texans.) In 1963, the team relocated to Kansas City and assumed their current name. The Chiefs joined the NFL as a result of the merger in 1970. The team is valued at over $2 billion. Hunt's son, Clark, serves as chairman and CEO. While Hunt's ownership stakes passed collectively to his widow and children after his death in 2006, Clark represents the Chiefs at all league meetings and has ultimate authority on personnel changes.

The Chiefs have won three AFL championships, in 1962, 1966, and 1969. They became the second AFL team (after the New York Jets) to defeat an NFL team in an AFL–NFL World Championship Game, when they defeated the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IV. The team's victory on January 11, 1970, remains the club's last championship game victory and appearance to date, and occurred in the final such competition prior to the leagues' merger coming into full effect. The Chiefs were also the second team, after the Green Bay Packers, to appear in more than one Super Bowl (and the first AFL team to do so) and the first to appear in the championship game in two different decades. Despite post-season success early in the franchise's history, winning five of their first six postseason games, the team has struggled to find success in the playoffs since. As of the conclusion of the 2018–19 playoffs, they have lost 12 of their last 14 playoff games, including eight straight, at the time the longest playoff losing streak in NFL history. The playoff losing streak stretched from the 1993-94 AFC Championship game to the 2013-14 Divisional Round. The only playoffs wins over the last 14 playoff games were a 30–0 win over the Texans in the 2015–16 playoffs and a 31–13 over the Colts in the 2018–19 playoffs.

Rock and Roll (Gary Glitter song)

"Rock and Roll" is a song by English glam rock singer Gary Glitter that was released in 1972 as a single and on the album Glitter. Co-written by Glitter and Mike Leander, the song is in two parts: Part 1 is a vocal track reflecting on the history of the genre, and Part 2 is a mostly instrumental piece. Both parts were popular in Britain, and the single went to No. 2 on the British charts. In concert, Glitter merged both into one performance.

"Rock and Roll" is Glitter's only top 10 hit in the U.S. It was also in North America that the "Part 2" became popularly associated with sports, as a number of professional teams began to play the song during games to invigorate the audience.

In the UK, "Rock and Roll" was one of over 25 hit singles for Glitter. In the US, the instrumental version (Part 2) attracted most of the attention; it hit No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100. The US mono 45, which is mixed different from the LP, clocks in at 3:10, while it runs 2:58 on the US LP. In France, "Part 1" was the successful side, peaking at number-one.
