RIP DC Legend: Chuck Brown (Nationals Edition)

DC Sports Nexus ---- Wednesday, May 16, 2012

According to the Washington City Paper, A Washington D.C. music legend, Chuck Brown, has died at age 75 after being in the hospital with pneumonia.  The Godfather of Go-Go was known was not known by all due to his niche style of go-go music, but most people could probably begin to sing along with his most mainstream hit Bustin' Loose.  Chuck Brown put on a show that could be enjoyed by all types of people of all different generations and he will be missed.

Back in 2008, the first season the Washington Nationals played in Nats Park, the team held a fan vote to see which song would be played after the first Nats player hit a homerun during every game.  The #1 vote-getter and winner was Chuck Brown's song "Bustin' Loose"

Well the first ever homerun at Nats Park turned out to be Ryan Zimmerman's walk-off, and so Chuck Brown's homerun song was shoved aside by the victory song, U2-Beautiful day.  Sad.  It probably ended up happening for the 1st time after a Christian Guzman HR.  Sad again.

So in honor of Chuck and his contribution to the city of Washington, D.C., here is Bustin' Loose.  RIP Chuck!
