Iron Maiden- Aces High
MC5- Kick out the Jams
Motorhead- Iron Fist
Guns n Roses- Out to get me
Dio- Rainbow in the Dark
Rush- Working Man
Van Halen- Panama
How about something that will get the players hyped up. Not sure how many of them listen to classic rock.
I listen to death metal and country. Do I expect others to? Not at all. So why should we expect the team to be super thrilled with what we'd want to hear?
They should be hyped regardless, music or not. The crowd on the other hand...occasionally needs a kick in the ass to come alive.
I just think if we're going to be piping stuff in, it might as well be stuff the players like.
Mike the band. F'ing mike the band already. The Big Ten has rules against electronically modifying the bands in the stands, but I feel like that's an outdated ordinance.
Other conferences have already put in PAs for the bands and of course no stadium is as vast or open as the Big House. We have an excellent, tradition-rich marching band, so why not let everyone hear us?
Mike the band. F'ing mike the band already.
Never heard of him and/or his ensamble. Are they any good?
and what about ann arbor's own bob seger?
like a rock
ramblin man (denard)
I can't listen to "Like a Rock" without thinking about Chevy trucks.
First, poll the team. Get what they want first.
Some others off the top of my head and/or agreeing with above posters
Anything by Rage Against the Machine,
Springsteen- climax of Born to Run right after a good running play "Tramps like us, baby we were born to Ruuuun!"
Jay Z- 99 problems-useful for many situations.
Pearl Jam- intro to Cordorouy after we score a touchdown "The waiting drove me mad!"
Of course there's no chance any of these would ever get played but...
LCD Soundsystem - All I Want
The National - Fake Empire
The Smiths - Bigmouth Strikes Again
Radiohead - Everything In Its Right Place
Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti - Bright Lit Blue Skies
Animal Collective - What Would I Want Sky? (from the 2:20 mark to the 3:10 mark, during a replay timeout)
Deerhunter - Agoraphobia (for the defense)
Lloyd Cole & Commotions - Are You Ready To Be Heartbroken?
Todd Rundgren - Hello It's Me
Wild Nothing - Chinatown or Our Composition
The Lemonheads - It's About Time
Joy Division - Transmission
Fleet Foxes - White Winter Hymnal
by about 1000%. I would +100 you if I could.
Maybe I'm in the minority here, maybe I'm old, maybe I'm too much of a music snob, but this entire discussion makes me sick to my stomach.
It feels like discussing our favorite companies and which billboards we'd most prefer littering up our beautiful stadium. "Sometimes when you're on" during a commercial break would definitely give me the chills, but I can't get behind piped in rawk music no matter what. I agree with some of the other folks in that we need ot find a way, any way, to make the band louder (mic them, move them, more loud instruments and less flute, whatever it takes).
I wish I knew how to make a poll...I really wonder how many mgobloggers would agree with me that piped in rawk should be banished to the depths of hell, even if the only alternative is a barely audible MMB. Maybe it's too late and I'm trying to fight a battle that has been lost, but I'm really curious what the breakdown of opinion would be.
How about We Are the Champions after we win the Big Ten Title...
"One Shining Moment"
... in the middle of the street!"
i could definitely see the big house rockin to this
The Stooges - I Wanna Be Your Dog
Sponge - Plowed
MC5 - Kick out the Jams
I could live with hearing that in Michigan Stadium.
Just mic the band. This rawk shit is terrible. OP suggesting Muse and Ted Nugent? In Michigan Stadium? Are you serious?
If we have to have cheesy classic rock blaring in there, let's roll with something decent like Harry Nilsson's 'Jump Into the Fire'
I can't stand the Nuge because of his politics. I am sure there are others who feel the same way about my favorites like RATM and MC5. But on football Saturdays, Michigan Nation is to stand united against the evil forces of [insert opponent's name here]. It may be best to avoid political stuff (for the same reason politics are taboo on this site).
If you want to get everyone really pumped up, the best is classical....
Undisputed classics, definitely a cut above the Jock Jams. Don't you think?
