god how i hate that fight song. It was my high school's fight song and after 4 years of hearing that crap, i'm glad i can finally hear a real fight song.
MSU Fight Song
I moved down here to Tx in 1980 from Ann Arbor. When I got to HS I learned the fight song was none other than "The Victors." Our cross town rivals was the ND song... just in case the rival wasn't big enough. The end.
My elementary school song was a take of 'On Wisconsin', my middle school was green & white and the fight song was a take off of OSU's 'Across the Field', and my high school just had this awful original fight song that no one knew and everyone agreed sucked.
Thank God I went to UofM and learned to appreciate a REAL marching band, and not the goofy looking militant wing of the Salvation Army I see down here in OH-IO
Same general thought, my elementary school's fight song was based on Notre Dame. I didn't realize how infuriating that was until I got to college. Of course, everyone in the school changed it to something involving boogers and nerds and other wonderful grade school humor.
I am in my last year of hearing that crap fight song. It just annoys me and I can't even clap to it anymore.
To the tune of Johnny B. Good by Chuck Berry (aka "Go, Johnny, Go") and use the words "No, Sparty, No." Actually, I wonder if we could get our band to do this when we play them and we can all sing along. Who has connections with the Band Director?
on the inside only, though. I'm 31. I'm a man.
anyone remember what happened here? the band messed up folding out the M
Wow their original song takes direct digs at UofM. I guess in 1915 Michigan was always on their mind.
+ you with a power of ten, I would. 1E+07 to you sir.
Glad to get the nod from a fellow Blue refugee.
Also, kudos to you on the use of scientific notation.
Listening to that, I really can't hear that music without thinking of hilarious screw ups, like ND 2007. I wonder if people ever actually listened to that song in a music sense.
When your fight song is written by a cheerleader named Francis.
and he'll kill you.
For the Stripes reference.
Look our team is weakening,
we're going to lose this game!
Suck! Suck! Suck, team, suck!
Victory for U of M!
THOSE FARMERS PLAY FOOTBALL!
This stuff up, can you?
Credit goes to the brilliant minds that forged these masterpieces.
Two versions. The first,
Go to school at MSU
Learn to count to ten
If you start and mess it up we'll let you try again
We're so dumb at MSU
We don't even care!
Holy shit we're half way there!
And the second,
Burn right through for MSU
Watch the flames keep growing!
Spartan cars are bound the burn
The couches will get their turn
Burn! Burn! Burn!
See those legs are weakening
We're gonna beat the cops
Burn! Burn! Burn couch burn!
Riots for MSU
I believe the first version is by Mike Ridley, a northern Michigan folk singer/comedian/musician/dude.
