Cringe Like Hell As You Watch This American Football Team’s Nu-Metal Video
Eastside Catholic School is a private college-preparatory school in Washington state, who pride themselves on their state of the art facilities and 17 athletic teams.
Their website will give prospective students a clear idea of the educational opportunities available, yet their alumni section must be a work in progress as they’ve neglected to mention their very own nu-metal stars, featuring the entirety of the Eastside Crusaders, their American football team who made a bid for nu metal glory well over a decade ago.

The track is a collaboration with soulful Seattle duo MBD: Music by Dezign – think “Brian McKnight meets Usher with a touch of Backstreet Boys” says their description on CD Baby – and the companion clip features their team miming to the track in their full kit. Keep an eye out for their number 74, who provides some sweet licks while perched on the uprights.
