Gens sings (in tune): 'Komets suck.'

Well, you are going to love this.

Evansville's Matt Gens has performed a song, entitled, "Komets suck."

Enjoy the video.

I won't analyze the talent; I'll let you do that. But I will say the lyrics aren't the wittiest:

"Heading down to Fort Wayne. Gonna play them again but they suck. They might have beat us once or twice before, but that's OK. Cause the Komets suck anyway. Yeah, the Komets suck, whoa, whoa. I don't want to play them again, because the Komets suck so bad. We're the best team in Indiana. That's why we live in Evansville. We played 'the Komets suck' once before. They came in to the Fort Wayne and we yelled, 'Hey, the Komets suck.' The Komets suck so bad. They're never gonna win another game. The Komets suck really bad. Yeah, the Komets suck."
