AC/DC's 'Big Balls' Remade For NFL Deflategate Controversy

(hennemusic) AC/DC's 1976 classic, "Big Balls", has been updated as the quarterback Tom Brady, the New England Patriots and the NFL continue to deal with the Deflategate scandal heading into Super Bowl week. Seattle's Sports Radio KJR has posted "Tom's Big Balls" as both a parody and commentary on the controversy, which revolves around the Patriots' use of deflated footballs in the first half of the team's AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts on January 18. The footballs were replaced by NFL officials at halftime of that game after the Colts brought it to their attention; the Patriots went on to win 45-7. The NFL is continuing to investigate the matter while the Patriots deny their involvement in the incident; the team was caught cheating in 2007 when they videotaped opponent's defensive coaches signals in violation of league rules - an event later known as Spygate. The Patriots will play the NFC Champion - and defending Super Bowl Champions - Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl 49 in Glendale, Arizona on February 1. "Big Balls" first appeared on AC/DC's 1976 album, "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap." The record was originally issued in Australia before seeing an international release three months later…and 5 years later in the U.S.
