When you think NBA timeout music, piano-driven indie rock is not what usually comes to mind… then again, if it stops “Gangnam Style” from being played one more time it would be worth it.

And it may be coming to a Bobcats game soon.

I like it.

Sure, Ben Fold’s biggest hit was “Brick,” which may not be the ideal song title for an NBA team, but in the Bobcats case it may be appropriate. And again, less Gangnam Style is good for all of us.

    Awesome. Too bad they won’t let him perform his cover of “Bitches Ain’t S**t”
