Neg's Urban Sports

Neg's Urban Sports are widely regarded as the most controversial and most popular act in Balls of Steel. Neg's antics have earned a cult worldwide following. [3] The entrance music for Neg is "Sound of da Police" by KRS-One. While performing the "Urban Sports", he often shouts "Whoop Whoop!". People have mistaken this as coming from the same song. However, it is Neg's own "catchphrase" from many years back, and in some episodes, Neg entered to the song "I Predict a Riot" by Kaiser Chiefs. At the beginning of each clip, "Monstertruckdriver" by T.Raumschmiere and "A Fistful of Dollars" by Ennio Morricone are played.
