In light of the “Royals” radio boycott in SF, Kansas City station 99.7 The Point has chosen to expand its airplay of the tune. As indicated by nearby news partner Fox4kc, The Point discharged a press discharge expressing that it would play the melody on the hour, consistently, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the first day of the Series.
“I admiration the work of Mr. Brian Figula, 96.5 KOIT Program Director, and his group of telecast experts at our sister stations in San Francisco, however we won’t let their against Royals soul destroy this minute,” program chief Tony Lorino said in the discharge. “A couple of irate San Franciscans who don’t have a melody called “Monsters” won’t rain on our parade.”
A few fans have remarked that the verses to Lorde’s tune really sound against Royals. Notwithstanding, the vocalist herself has said the tune was motivated partially by a photograph she saw of resigned Royals player George Brett.
“I’d been kinda contemplating composition that tune for some time and been pulling together a couple little lines here and there, and I had this picture from the National Geographic of this buddy marking baseballs,” she told Vh1. “He was a baseball player, and his shirt said Royals, and I was similar to, ‘I truly love that saying,’ in light of the fact that I’m an enormous, in the same way as, word fetishist. I’ll pick a saying and I’ll stick a thought to that. So it was simply that saying.”
