Former Creed frontman Scott Stapp has fallen victim to his own music.

Our story starts with the Carolina Panthers, who began a tradition of “Creedbombing” teammates this year. A Creedbomb occurs when someone looks into your eyes and starts intensely singing a Creed song. 

The Charlotte Observer caught up with Stapp, who apparently now loves the Panthers and their new tradition. Stapp told the Observer he’s begun rooting for Carolina, wants to film a video with the team and will cheer them on in Super Bowl 50.

The act is so popular, Stapp says, the band he’s currently touring with as a solo artist is Creedbombing him. 

Quiz: Should you root for the Panthers or Broncos in the Super Bowl?

“And then the next thing you know, my band is doing it to me out on tour.” Stapp said. “And I saw the humor in it and saw how funny it was. I think it’s awesome.”

I hope to never write more about Creed than this.
