It sounds like it is probably the same video that an MGoBlog user posted on here, therefore probably not going on the video screens. Is it just the Michigan Football group that posted it, cause that is student run.
AC/DC on the Michigan Stadium screens?
Speculation ranges from added band participation to full blown RAWK music being pumped into the stadium, a la Wisconsin and Michigan State.
This, I fear.
Not sure if any of you follow Michigan Football on Facebook but yesterday they posted a video to "fire you up" before the start of the season. Set to the dulcet tones of AC/DC's "For Those About To Rock," the video showed clips from throughout Michigan's football history. (Sadly, there were not many from 2008.)
It's actually a great video and it DID fire me up even more -- seeing Desmond talk about "Should I do the pose? Should I not do it? ... F*** it" was interesting and the video, for what it was, was well done.
I am really just hoping this isn't the kind of thing they start blasting before or during games. Living in DC, I only made it up to one game last year and don't remember if this is something that is already happening, so if it is I apologize for my lack of awareness.
and it claims it's the official Facebook page of Michigan Football. Doesn't say anything about student-run. But, it's the internet, so who knows?
not only for the season, but for the AC/DC concert in Tacoma, WA Monday night as well. RAWK!!
My only concern with AC/DC is the fact that I have had to endure Hells Bells over and over at TUOOS every two years when Michigan comes to town. Its a painful place to go to a football game and that song has become a sore reminder. For the record they dont play the whole song, only the intro...
I agree that something needs to be done to get things more stirred up in the crowd at Michigan Stadium...even when we are winning and looking great things tend to be on the subdued side and my seats are even next to the student section.
... I made the video for nothing more than to get Michigan fans excited for the season
I am in a band that happens to play some pretty hype rock music IMHO, and I would love to see a UM video set to our stuff. Check it out on myspace.com/thrive07 -- I think that the song, "Metamorphosis" could be a good one because that's kinda what our whole program is going through right now. Whichever song you use is great, though. If you need a .wav file instead of the mp3, I can get it to you. This would pretty much be the coolest thing ever associated with our music, and I hope you have the time/willingness to make this wish come true. GO BLUE!!!
And it's great, just wasn't sure if Michigan was leaning toward doing that in the stadium. Thanks for clearing it up, guys.
That is an awesome video, though. Music is appropriate for the change.
Anyone got a pill that will knock me out for the next ten days? That would be great. Thanks in advance for the help.
Do you remember the "I play for Michigan" video last year?
... will make another before the opener. Any suggestions for music?
Anything but Yakety-Sax.
That was word for word the comment in my head when I first read his question.
Great video - keep them coming. No suggestions for music, but I would love to see some Breaston highlights in there. I had never heard that Desmond interview, by the way. Very cool.
Fanfare for the Common Man - ELP
how about making one set to "titan spirit" which is the song from remember the titans. that one always gets me pumped no matter what.
how about some rage against the machine
that always gets me pumped, i listen to it before football practice and games
Is it me or does Denard Robinson look exactly like Desmond Howard?!? Kinda freaky deaky if you ask me!
There was a thread on that a couple days ago.
I think that might have been his point, since this just points to the video posted here on the boards a few days ago.
I could be wrong though.
I dont have a problem with the music being played during the game as it seems to pump everyone up. I guess that is just my youth in me that likes it. But it cannot take over the the natural sounds of the stadium. So before games between quarters especially the 4th. That sounds cliche but it works. I love our schedule for this year and with the right blend of pumped in music and the natural sound of the fans and band it would become one of the toughest places to play again with the stadium reconstruction and the sound being trapped more in the stadium.
...that WANTS music in the stadium?
Yeah, that'd be about right. This is Michigan.
there is music in the Stadium. It's called the Marching Band.
Solid video. I am not thrilled with the idea of pumping in non-marching-band-music during the games, but I wouldn't mind a video beforehand. They play a History video before Bulls games in the United Center set to a song from Remember the Titans that gets me riled up every time I see it.
haha thats exactly what i was thinking of when i suggested to set the next video to the remember the titans music. good shit. i get goosebumps when i see that video.
because no one has EVER done that.
the Colts played a scene from Braveheart before every game last year (..."You'll never take our Freedom...) - and it worked well. I am biased because I think that movie is the shiznitobam snipsnapsalmon.
i just love at 5:25 of that video the move manningham put on that notre dame db. that guy just got burned SO bad.
i watched that game at a friend's house that was about 50% notre dame fans 50% michigan fans. the notre fans were all gone by the 4th quarter.
I'm OK with non-marching band music at the big house, as long as its this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vj2xSwOY0xs
i don't mind, but i wish they would use a different song. ac/dc songs are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyy overused and get quite annoying after a while.
