This Billy Joel “We Didn’t Start the Fire” parody is sure to make you laugh at the disastrous quarterback situation the Cleveland Browns have been in for almost two decades.
In case you’re unaware, the Browns just ended their worst season in franchise history and so fans of the team don’t have much to smile about. Sure, Cleveland sports fans did enjoy a basketball championship, which Cavaliers star LeBron James and company won over the summer, then a few months later the Indians came so close but ended up blowing the World Series against the Chicago Cubs. Now, after this mess of a football season, fans have pretty much come to expect this from the Browns as the team has truly lived up to its “Dumpster Fire” reputation.
On Wednesday, Jan. 4, a hilarious cover of Joel’s hit titled “The Browns are a Dumpster Fire,” debuted on Colin Cowherd’s The Herd radio show.
You can listen to the parody below:

“We Didn’t Start the Fire” was released in 1989. The song’s lyrics consisted of Joel running through more than 100 major headlines between the years 1949 (when he was born) and 1989. It also earned him a Grammy and hit No. on the U.S. charts.
