Motley Crüe frontman Vince Neil, owner of a new arena football team in Las Vegas, sang the National Anthem before the team’s first game on Monday night against the San Jose SaberCats.
Did he score? You decide.
After players for the Las Vegas Outlaws were introduced to the sounds of Motley Crüe’s “Kickstart My Heart,” Neil was escorted to the field by two cheerleaders.
He had announced earlier that he was going to sing the anthem “for the fans and families in attendance, and for our veterans and service men and women everywhere.”

“We’ll have T-shirt tosses every time there’s a break, and, if necessary, I’ll have little people doing zip-line rides across the field.”
By the way, Carrot Top handled the coin toss.
Oh, and the Outlaws lost.
