i truely like USC's to be honest...i think michigan and notre dame have cool songs though too

Are these the 7 that you think are the best and you want us to pick?

The Hoosiers for obvious reasons.

From someone who is currently enrolled in band and has been for the past six years, USC is trash. The band you hear at their games is distinctly horrid. Michigan's band is pure sex in sound form though.

from a music major studying music at school you couldnt be more wrong about the USC fight song but you're entitled to your opinion

I would have to go with SC's at #1, I hum it outloud or in my head all the time. I would put Norte Dame's #2.

The music itself is fine, the band playing it however is not.

i have friends in the Trojan marching band...they are legit musicians. the band is solid, they travel the world and compete in marching band festivals. You are entitled to your opinion though, thats what makes the world go round

They have a show band, what many would refer to as a modern band. That however does not make them a good musical group. They play modern music and dance more than 50 percent of the time. They're a disgrace to actual bands like Michigan and Texas.

they have a sweet dancing style but even if you dont like it not really sure why that makes them a bad band. they have played and recorded with George Clinton, Fleetwood Mac, Offspring and many others

Dave, what do you think of IU's band? They any good?

I'll take a listen to them, i've never really listened to them much though to be honest. I can find a bunch of their stuff and give you a more adequate answer tomorrow though.

From that small clip, they sound good but i'd have to actually look into their music program and what not. Michigan is without a doubt one of the best college bands in the nation in Division I football though.

Oklahoma is far better than USC, I knew/know a guy who played trumpet for their band and they are a top notch quality band. Im saying all this despite my hatred of the Sooners.

NMSU: There are drinking lyrics in the Fight Song and there are 18-20 year olds who are morally inclined to not follow them...

Or are they?

I'm not asking about the band just the team song.

Part of how the team song works is the band playing it.

SC/ND/Michigan are all great fight songs, but one I think is underrated is the LSU fight song. In particular, I like how they build up into the fast beat at the end and finish off with the

"T.....I.....G.....E....R.....S..... TIGERS!!!!"

My high school had Michigan's fight song so I have a love-hate relationship with it when I hear it while watching Michigan games.

usc sucks and are just annoying when you watch them cause they never shut up. When I was at the UCLA USC game they would play the fight song after anything less than a 5 yard play for UCLA. It got really annoying. They also play it at the worst times also. When USC was playing Washington state in basketball, Washington state took a charge with 5 secs lets to basically insure them that they won the game. Of course the USC band plays in the backround. This also happened in the UW game. Spencer Hawes hit a 3 as teim ran out in OT to put the game in to double OT. The band started playing the fight song and the cheerleaders starting doing the victory crap that they do when UW had just totally owned SC. I was amazed at how dumb they were.

The Greatest F'ING fight song out there!

Fight On State! (http://www.fightmusic.com/mp3/big10/Penn_State__TD_Fight_On_State.mp3)
The Nittany Lion. (http://www.fightmusic.com/mp3/big10/Penn_State__The_Nittany_Lion.mp3)



Every college has a legend, passed on from year to year,
To which they pledge allegiance, and always cherish dear.
But of all the honored idols, there’s but one that stands the test,
It’s the stately Nittany Lion, the symbol of our best.

HAIL! to the Lion, loyal and true.
HAIL! Alma Mater, with your white and blue.
PENN! STATE! forever, molder of men (and women),
FIGHT! for her honor — FIGHT! — and victory again.

Indiana has its Hoosiers,
Purdue its gold and black.
The Wildcats from Northwestern
and Spartans on attack.
Ohio State has its Buckeyes,
Up north, The Wolverines.
But the mighty Nittany Lions,
The best they’ve ever seen.

HAIL! to the Lion, loyal and true.
HAIL! Alma Mater, with your white and blue.
PENN! STATE! forever, molder of men (and women),
FIGHT! for her honor — FIGHT! — and victory again.

There’s Pittsburgh with its Panther,
and Penn her Red and Blue,
Dartmouth with its Indian,
and Yale her Bulldog, too.
There’s Princeton with its Tiger,
and Cornell with its Bear.
But speaking now of victory,
We’ll get the Lion’s share.

HAIL! to the Lion, loyal and true.
HAIL! Alma Mater, with your white and blue.
PENN! STATE! forever, molder of men (and women),
FIGHT! for her honor — FIGHT! — and victory again.

i love to watch the usc marching band, also asu's fight song is sweet, and stanford band is hilarious and always have band fights with rival schools.
