There's something extra sweet this year about the return of America's favorite sport.

The Monday Night Football matchup on September 12th saw Russell Wilson's Denver Broncos lose a nail-biter to the Super Bowl-winning quarterback's former team, the Seattle Seahawks, kicking off the MNF season with a high-profile showdown. And new music from Marshmello soundtracked the festivities.

Mello's forthcoming track "Grown Man," a collaboration with Southside and Polo G, has already begun dominating promotional spots for the matchup, but that's merely just the start for the masked hitmaker. The Grammy-nominated Shockwave artist also received the honor of remixing Monday Night Football's iconic "Heavy Action" theme, a composition that has never been remixed since its inception in 1970.

"Our goal was to take the classic Monday Night Football music and add a contemporary vibe to it," said Kevin Wilson, ESPN's Music Director, in a press release shared with EDM.com. "To get there, we wanted to enlist an artist, a move we have never previously done with a 'Heavy Action' remix."
