Born and raised in Minneapolis, Prince Rogers Nelson known to all as “Prince” is paying homage to his hometown NFL team. The singer has penned the fight song “Purple and Gold” for Brett Favre and the rest of the Minnesota Vikings.

The team will take on the New Orleans Saints at the Louisiana Superdome on Sunday. At stake is the NFC title and a Super Bowl berth.

Prince is actually a big football fan. He owns a skybox suite at the Hubert Humphrey Metrodome and attends most of the home games.

The Vikings did a little singing of their own after beating the Dallas Cowboys in a playoff game last week. Check out their rendition of “Pants on the Ground” here.

Check out the full version on video below. The singer may have missed the boat on this fight song. Let us know what you think…hit or miss?
