Fight Song


For those who care to respond...

What's your favorite fight song? For me, it will always be "On Wisconsin" (modified to be my high school fight song) tied with "Hail to the Victor" from Michigan.

"Anchors Aweigh" gets honorable mention as well.

So, what's your fav? What gets you jazzed every time it hits your eardrums?


Fight CU down the field,
CU must win,
Fight fight for victory,
CU knows no defeat,
So roll up that mighty score,
Never give in,


On Wisconsin
UWM Fight Song
The Marines Hymn


Scotland The Brave


The Dropkick Murphys treatment of "For Boston" is good to fire me up, but so is just about anything they do...


Without a doubt, my favorite is:

"In old Ohio there's a team
That's known thru-out the land;
Eleven warriors, brave and bold,
Whose fame will ever stand.
And when the ball goes over,
Our cheers will reach the sky,
Ohio field will hear again
The Buckeye Battle Cry-

Drive! Drive on down the field,
Men of the scarlet and gray;
Don't let them thru that line,
We have to win this game today,
Come on, Ohio!
Smash through to victory.
We cheer you as you go:
Our honor defend
So we'll fight to the end for O-hi-o."

Of course, there's also
"Hail to those mother*******
Hail to those big ****suckers...."

But that's in a category all its own. :slight_smile:


I was just gonna mention that song


Mine is an old English football chant that goes along the lines of "We're gonna kick your fucking teeth in!!!" Twenty thousand soccer hooligans chanting that is soul stirring.

That or "My Heart will go on" by Celine Dion. Everytime I hear that song I get an attack of the rage and want to punch someone.


Gotta be ARN: All Right Now (Stanford)


Awww it's nice to see such flattery from the inferior Big 10 rival... It's kinda cute.


Rocky Top, Tennessee... only played like 8 million times at every home game, but I never get sick of it...


I don't know if it qualifies as a fight song or not, but to be in Tiger Stadium when the LSU band is on the field and plays this http://www.lsusports.net/downloads1/4213.wma?ATCLID=177310&SPID=2541&DB_OEM_ID=5200&SPSID=0 as the team takes the field never fails to give me goose bumps.


Hail! to the victors valiant
Hail! to the conqu'ring heroes
Hail! Hail! to Michigan
the leaders and best
Hail! to the victors valiant
Hail! to the conqu'ring heroes
Hail! Hail! to Michigan,
the champions of the West!

Links you to other conferences as well.


hey Dan,

which fight song do you like better?

Cal's ... or ... UCLA's ???



Huh, I always thought the words were:
Hail, hail to Bo Schembeckler,
he can just suck my pecker,
Hail, hail to Michigan
The cesspool of the world.

And isn't Wisconsin's fight song a cheese commercial??? I didn't see any mention of "the cheese more people choose" in the lyrics.

Of course, I've got to go with my alma mater:

Down, down the field goes
old Syracuse,
Just see those backs hit the line
and go thro'
Down, down the field they go
marching, Fighting for the Orange
stuanch and true.
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Vict'ry's in sight for old Syracuse,
Each loyal son knows she
ne'er more will lose,
For We'll fight, yes. we'll fight,
and with all our might
For the glory of Syracuse.

Funny thing is, most people at SU don't know the words, just the tune.



The Cougar Song
Brigham Young University
By Clyde D. Sandgren, '32

Rise all loyal Cougars and hurl your challenge to the foe.
We will fight, day or night, rain or snow.
Loyal, strong, and true
Wear the white and blue.
While we sing, get set to spring.
Come on Cougars it's up to you. Oh!

Rise and shout, the Cougars are out
along the trail to fame and glory.
Rise and shout, our cheers will ring out
As you unfold your victr'y story.

On you go to vanquish the foe for Alma Mater's sons and daughters.
As we join in song, in praise of you, our faith is strong.
We'll raise our colors high in the blue
And cheer our Cougars of BYU.


All you Michigan haters can suck my enormous Maize and Blue penis!

"Hail to the Victors" is the definitive fight song. Face it, Michigan has the coolest uniforms, the coolest stadium, and the dopest fight song - hands down.

Every other school is just jealous and hating. Especially the "Suckeyes" down in Columbus. hehehe!

Go Blue! (class of '99)
