Football Display Case
elsewhere in awesome things kickstarter made happen
And you think you're crowded at Michigan Stadium
IMPORTANT: Ondre Pipkins not involved.
this is amazing
One vote for keeping the song, it chokes me up just a bit every time I hear it. I really enjoy the hype videos, keep up the great work...
One more time with Better Son/Daughter. After this year, it'll have to be something else. But I think it's fitting for one more year.
They no longer call me Bisbiño
Choose a new song. It's a football hype video, not women's soccer.
Maybe this is too goofy but "Five Years Time" but Noah & The Whale might have some promise. Or "Daylight" by Matt & Kim. They are both upbeat.
Not sure any of these beat Dog Days are Over though.
IMHO the best theme song for a Michigan hype vide would be "Tub Thumping" by Chumbawawba.
"Will be singing, when we're winning, we'll be singing -
I GET KNOCKED DOWN, BUT I GET UP AGAIN
YOU'RE NEVER GONA KEEP ME DOWN!"
Great party toon, might need some editing but love the message in context with where we are at.
That song was released and became big in....1997. After 4 years of 4 loss seasons....it was blared at many a Rose Bowl tailgate.

The Rilo Kiley song, as great as it is, belongs to a past era. This year the tone should be less depressed, more blood thirsty. Ideas:
Okkervil River, "For Real":

Muse, "Stockholm Syndrome":

Edit: I haven't been active in a long time, and somehow I forgot how to embed. Apologies.
Here's a simple idea: what about the full version of "The Victors"? We're throwing out all these popular songs that no one can agree on when we have the best fight song in the country. A little silly, no?
I've actually been considering doing some sort of a complementary video to the symphonic version of the Victors -- I love that song.
Those who stay will be champions.
I love that song for this era. Not the RichRod era, not the Hoke era, but the 2007-2011 Michigan football era.
Skip to 4:25 for the finale.
Abort, Retry, Fail?
Seven Nation Army- White Stripes. Great slow/fast tempo and a Baltimore reference. The "that ain't what you want to hear , but that's what I'll do" line is a perfect spot for a finger-point.
Is that you?
Yes please please please! You have no idea how much I love those videos. Give me the chills each time, and I love showing them off to friends to try to give them a sense of a) how intensely passionate and emotional (happy and sad) it is to be a Michigan fan and b) how hip our fanbase is (for making a hype video featuring an amazing indie song).
I think the lyrics and the tone are absolutely perfect....perhaps now more than ever. After the last 3 years of struggles, we need redemption. Lowlights from all three of the last years combined with recent highlights would be absolutely perfect.
If you do another song (hopefully in addition to rather than in place of) I would agree w/ wildcatblue above in recommending Okkervil River's "For Real." But really, I can't think of anything lyrically or emotionally perfect to describe my feelings as a fan right now than Better Son/Daughter.
Keep "Better Son/Better Daughter." Even though it hurts so much to hear.
Keep Rilo Kiley, but this should be the last year. That song pretty much defines the Rich Rod era.
Special Teams means special times!
Agreed. Hopefully it will no longer be appropriate after this year. It does such an amazing job of summarizing the anguish and dissapointment while also providing hope and excitement that the future will be different.
If it defines the Rich Rod era(which wasn't pleasant), why would you want to continue it past that era?
I don't think many people will read my post, and most won't care. There used to be a group called Fort Minor that made rap/hip-hop. They aren't very mainstream like Lil' Wayne or Soulja Boy, and for the most part their lyrics aren't offensive.
Liking "Dog Days Are Over" more and more. . . .The lyrics to "Get It On" might not fit (except for a brief reference to a Michigan 2011 opponent that has special significance for Brady Hoke), but it's another suggestion.
