Bengals fans in uproar over Katy Perry's 'Roar'

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati Bengals fans were in an uproar over Katy Perry's 'Roar'.

The Bengals took on the Pittsburgh Steelers for Monday Night Football at Paul Brown Stadium, and the song was used during a video before kickoff as well as played several more times throughout the game.

Bengals officials say they were flooded with negative tweets about the song. Fans claimed they preferred the usual song selection to Perry's pop hit.

So while Katy Perry's 'Roar' won't be silenced, this week fans can expect it to play a far less prominent role during Sunday's game. More of a meow, if you will.
