The Lonely Island have covered a lot of topics over the years with songs like “I’m On A Boat” and “I Just Had Sex,” but their discography had a distinct lack of references to 1980s Bay Area sports stars. Thankfully, the group rectified that this week with a new song tributing Mark McGwire, Jose Canseco and Joe Montana because … well, why not?

It had been a while since we last heard new music from Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone andAkiva Schaffer. They came out with the movie “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping” in 2016, but their last album before that, The Wack Album, was released five years ago.

If they want to release a full slate of songs about athletes from the 1980s, I’m not opposed.
