In every season since 2006, NBC’s Sunday Night Football has launched with a reconfigured version of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts’ 1988 hit I Hate Myself For Loving You.

With the title changed to I’ve Been Waiting All Day for Sunday Night, the performer for 2006 was Pink. Since then, it has been Faith Hill.

It won’t be Faith Hill any longer. She announced on Monday that she won’t be back in 2013.

But the song will be. In confirming Hill’s departure, Sunday Night Football producer Fred Gaudelli told PFT that the song will remain the same, with a new arrangement.

“It’s our anthem,” Gaudelli said.

With it being the No. 1 show on TV for two straight years, they’ll be lining up to sing the Sunday Night Football anthem.

There’s no word on who the replacement will be. Make your cause below.

I’ve voted for KISS. MDS prefers Jane Lynch.
