Mike Lantry, 1972
Playing NCAA 11 has forced me to mute the sound when I play USC, Oklahoma, and FSU. My god, those songs are annoying. On the other hand, I often schedule Army or Navy because I like those songs. Also, I'm ashamed to say, the Bama song has grown on me. The list (with The Victors on top):
Army, Navy, Bama, Wisconsin, Georgia Tech, and as much as it hurts me to admit it, Notre Dame
Minnesota, Ohio State, Michigan State
Oklahoma, FSU, USC
Any others to add to the list?
EDIT: Worst line in any fight song is in Washington's:
It's harder to push them over the line
Than pass the Dardanelles.
I have a recording of a parody of University of Ohio State's fight song from the 1970s (I think) that Michigan radio stations used to play. It is awesome. "Husband-hunting dames" is a wonderful insult. Enjoy:
If anyone has more info on this - origin, singers, year, etc., - it would be appreciated. Or if you have an original recording without the "Tressel" dub.
EDIT: I see Spawn of Mzone also posted this last year, but this is a better quality recording.
A slightly re-edited version of the altered Michigan State fight song we used to sing after the annual little brother beating.
An hour North of ol' Ann Arbor,
There's a team if I recall
Got a massive shoulder chip,
'Cause the Spartans can't play ball...
Blow right through ol' M-S-U
Watch the points keep growing
Spartan teams are going to lose
They're fighting Sylvia Rimm.*
See their defense transferring,
We're gonna win again,
FIGHT! FIGHT! RAW TEAM FIGHT!
Your older brother's proud of you!
* From Wikipedia: According to child psychologist Sylvia Rimm, sibling rivalry is particularly intense when children are very close in age and of the same gender, or where one child is intellectually gifted.
Whats everyones 3 favorite fight sings?
1) Michigan- Obviously
2) It is now Texas a&ms fight song. Pretty sweet.
3) I dislike ND, but there fight song is pretty dope. I liked ND growing up when 'RUDY' came out. Until I realized what rivals are and they beat Mich a few times so I started hating them.
