Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) has one of the most loyal fanbases in Indian Premier League. Regardless of the team being a one-hit wonder, their fans make sure to throng the stadiums in large numbers. RCB has taken out its new IPL anthem on Friday, a day ahead of the opening match between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings.


However, fans were far from pleased with this anthem of the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Fans have pointed out that the anthem comprises more Hindi and English compared to Kannada, even though the team is based out of Bengaluru.

Some fans said that the state is fighting against "Hindi imposition" and here the team has come up with this anthem that goes against this fight. Few said that the anthem should have been in Kannada and English and questioned the use of Hindi.

However, some fans supported the team and pointed out that RCB is only a franchise and not a regional team. Some said that the team has players from all over India as well as international cricketers, which indicates that the team if not Bengaluru's.

Here's how fans reacted to this all new RCB anthem

If CSK can have a regional anthem, so can RCB

Theme song for more views and nothing else
