San Francisco radio station KFOG says it has removed Lorde's 2013 hit "Royals" from its playlist rotation for the duration of the World Series as a show of support for the hometown Giants as they take on the Kansas City Royals.

Lorde has said in the past that the chorus' inspiration came from a photo in a National Geographic magazine of Kansas City great George Brett signing baseballs for fans.

Considering the song is no longer on the Billboard Top 100, KFOG was probably not planning on spinning "Royals" too much anyway, but with something as important as the World Series on the line there is no need to take any chances.

No word on if the station also will be avoiding the Chris Brown hit "Loyal".
