Sick Puppies Get In the Game With Ready Steady Go

The rock trio shoot and score with their new cover of a Paul Oakenfold classic.


Sick Puppies are playing to win with their new single Ready Steady Go — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

A cover of the Paul Oakenfold hit song, the music will also be used to launch the new NHL season on ESPN.

“For those who haven’t heard Paul Oakenfold’s song Ready Steady Go, it’s a classic tune,” Sick Puppies say in a press release. “When the opportunity came to be able to put our spin on it, it was a no brainer! The NHL screams fast, aggressive and punchy rock, so we took that energy and recorded it with that attitude.”

Oakenfold adds: “Check out my song Ready Steady Go that is going to be used for the start of the NHL season on ESPN and will run for the rest of the year. My friends Sick Puppies did a kickass rock version of it!”

Sick Puppies burst onto the scene in 2001, and have been making their mark with six albums and 13 single releases, along with touring the world. The trio, that consists of Emma Anzai (bass, backing bocals), Mark Goodwin (drums, backing vocals) and Bryan Scott (lead vocals, guitar) have more than 500 million audio streams of their music and more than 250 million views of their videos on Youtube. Their hits include You’re Going Down, Gunfight, All The Same, Riptide, Maybe, My World and Here With You.

Kevin Wilson, creative music director for ESPN, says “Ready Steady Go is a classic hype track and having the Sick Puppies do their own heavy take on it fits so great to amp-up the start of the NHL season.”

Sick Puppies plan to release an album of all new material in 2023. Listen to Ready Steady Go HERE, listen to more from Sick Puppies below, and find them at their website, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and TikTok.
