Abstract:

This paper explores the increasing confluence between music and sport, two previously largely distinct realms of cultural production. Focusing on the popularity and marketing of sports rock and hypermasculinized sports anthems by gay icons Queen, the Village People and Pet Shop Boys, this article theorizes the often paradoxical social and sexual codes engendered by the relationship of sports and popular music.
