Ludacris "Welcome to Atlanta" I believe he even mentions GT in one of the 5000 remixes of that song that came out when it was popular

Yes, Ludacris also mentions GT in his song Georgia (which would have to be cropped for obvious reasons).

We could probably come up with 50 songs that would be great and get everyone excited, but I really like the idea of using a song that is a little more specific to GT or at least ATL. I had a friend who played for VT a few years ago and he said that they stopped playing "All the way Turnt up" in the locker room after they played us because it reminded them of that haunting loss. It would be cool if we could have a song that had that effect.

It'll go up during a break like that horrendous "I'm a Banana" tragedy.

Please.....no more of the banana video. Funny and amusing on YouTube does not necessarily translate to funny and amusing in a stadium of 50,000 people.

Mitch, do you know if anyone ever polls the players on what they want to hear? Personally, that makes the most sense to me. Give those guys what they want since they are the reason we are all there.

I was going to suggest this too but then thought the players would be more pumped up by a pumped up crowd than the music alone.

My suggestions:

1- Keep Zombie Nation... I personally love it but if not then
2- "Sail" by Awolnation
3-"Midnight City" by M83
4- Or any hard/classic rock intro song

Clean version of Let's Go. It goes with ATL culture, would pump up the team, and it was Chipper Jones's intro when he was at bat.

(On a less serious note I think it would intimadating as hell if we could get the entire stadium to do this: )

The fall out boy one could work. Not a fan of any of the rap songs I've heard so far. All the way turned up would be okay. Would be nice if we could get our own song though.

I have some influence over it. I don't have direct access to the Athletic Association, but as a part of The Ramblin' Reck Club, we present ideas to try to help the energy at school events, and this was just one of the things that we thought would be a possibility to change.

Yes, it is what it is, but if we came up with a different song, one that would get people to jump up and down, fraternity or not, it would really get the beginning of games going much better.

Really, if y'all have any ideas about how to increase school spirit in any aspect on campus, tag me in your post or send me a message. I can present the idea to the club and see what kind of action we can take on it.

I suggested on another site "Hall of Fame," by the Script with Will.I.Am. I thought it had a good sports theme, but it also ties in several other occupations, like astronauts, so all "fans" could be engaged.


"Hall Of Fame"
