It Don’t Look Natural
What the hell is going on with the music in Sanford Stadium??? What is this Zombie Nation OOOoooOOOoooOOO bullshit? Are we GA Tech now? What is this “Jump Around” nonsense from House of Pain? I am perplexed. Our stadium music was fine. Or at least adequate. Now, just like our recent records, look of the field, and a part of our fan base it too is abysmal.
If you looked around the stadium when this garbage was being played (and sponsored by Academy which I will now be boycotting) fans were looking around with their hands up and I heard countless, “What is this shit?” exclamations. It makes me sick. Well I’m gonna list a couple of songs that I think we could utilize to not only ‘hype up’ the crowd, but also send a message that this Stadium is uniquely Georgia and that it is in the music capital of the state: ATHENS. Home of the B-52s, REM, Drive By Truckers, Widespread Panic, etc. We should act like it. So besides The Who’s Baba O’Reiley, here is the list that I have compiled. Some old, some new, some surprises.
Those can be used for kickoffs…
These can be used for warm ups…
I mean hell, anything other than that Zombie Nation horseshit.
I know this my seem trivial to some of you, but I feel like we’ve changed things just to change them…
*UPDATE: I thought of some other traditions that are changed as well. The spell GEORGIA cheer is now done at the beginning of the game and NOT at halftime. And the band location has also moved and is right beside the other team’s band and they muddle together in this cluster of sounds.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
