OT: Hype Song suggestion

Submitted by UMfan21 on July 23rd, 2011 at 1:25 AM

Apologize in advance if this is too RAWK for some of you.  I happen to think that the best hype videos are rock songs heavy on drums, or rap with good beats.  The problem I see with rap is too many bad lyrics which detracts from the video.  I'm tired of movie quotes and "Better son/daughter". 

So anyway, I purchased the new 3 Doors Down album yesterday and I thought the title track was pretty good.  Lyrics are topical for UofM fans, and the drums would make for great synchnig with defensive hits and Denard running.

If anyone is thinking of a hype video I'd highly suggest this song. 


Youtube video is rather poor audio quality, but enough for you to get a feel:





Another day in some other place

could someone please remind me

where the hell we are?

Another night I feel it come to life

How could this go so far?

The life I love is the one I lead

It gets crazy but that's fine by me



'cause I don't see the day

when I run all night

But I've got to say, there's no other way

I'm having the time of my life


The words you sing bring back memories

of so many days that have gone

I look back and smile at those forgotten miles

and laugh at all that went wrong

what I am is what I want

and I'll be this way 'til I'm dead and gone




For me that's all I need

To Live the way I please




There's some things that I can't make right

and it's been so long Lord since I've been home

but I'm having the time of my life.

Not only did you not have a hype video, nor did you suggest us to see another institutions' hype video. Rather you came on here, and created a post of the utmost indecency insulting the hard work of other fine citizens of this blog who actually contribute content (i.e. Hype videos).


But that is not all... you proceeded to make a suggestion by way of lyrics. Lyrics man! Damn it. That's all you had to show, lyrics.

I won't even go into the obscene profanity of a band that you offered up, which was perhaps the most foul thing you did amongst this sacrilege of a post.

I will leave you now with a revised quote:

""A firm rule must be imposed upon our blog and people like you before it destroys itself. The blog needs some censorship and geometry, some taste and decency. I suspect that we are teetering on the edge of the abyss.”

about this blog is posters like you. Did you really think it was necessary to write a whole post berating a person's preference in music? Real mature.

The OP simply said he was tired of the normal music selections and offered up an alternative. Completely reasonable. Please, do us a favor and get over yourself.

Says the person with a photoshopped cat picture as their profile photo...one of the most overused, unfunny memes on the interwebs (sorry to all mgoblog users who love the cats, but yes...I went there).  LOLcats were funny in 1998.

Complain about the song choice all you want, that's why I offered it up merely as an alternative to the songs others have used.  But, the majority of your rant is grossly misplaced as my title clearly states "Hype SONG" and "Suggestion".  No where in the title did I mislead you into thinking it had anything to do with a VIDEO or an original creation.  I included lyrics and a low-fi version of the song since it has been out for only a few days I could not find a higher quality version.  But, since this band is not of your liking anyway, the quality is really trival, as nothing would have met your high standards. 

Thanks for playing, please enjoy another Eminem, Journey, or Rilo hype video.

Its really more annoying when people, such as the above poster, take things way to seriously and blow up on somebody.  So to you sir, i say, AMEN!

Meh...I tried.  The AC/DC hype video from like 3 years ago is still my favorite, and I hate that because AC/DC is so overdone.

ian was out of line any more than the OP. just as the OP has the freedom to post crappy bands that he likes, ian has the freedom to knock him down for it.



I think the hype videos are good how they are. they work. they get you jacked up for the season. why fix something that isnt broken? sure, you could maybe make it "better" but you can also ruin it completely with a bad song.

Not a big fan of heavy metal. Rather take the rap. I'm not a Kanye fan but I was watching some Michigan hype video on Youtube the other day, it seemed alright.

I wasn't aware that 3 Doors Down still made music or that anyone would actually buy one of their albums aside from Jason Varitek who has used "Kryptonite" as his at bat music since the beginning of time. Therefore, this post has been extremely informative for me.

Different Strokes for different folks, but I can't stand 3 Doors Down. So imho, I think that this is a horrendous idea. And while hip hop is far from the only music I listen to, I think it's the ideal music for any hype video. Also, someone earlier had mentioned dubstep, which I don't think would be too shabby of an idea...
