Why not "Eye of the Tiger" for the pregame?

Not as cliche as "We Will Rock You", great intro that they could really do some cool stuff with with the lights, and it, you know, fits the school/team! They might could even work it to where Tiger Band plays along with it.

Just my unsolicited 2 cents, which, post-inflation, are about 0.02 cents these days.... :/

This is a pretty good idea actually, and it fits with the school much better.

That could work, too. Or, we could mix it up and us a different song for each game. Keeps it fresh and interesting!

Correct. We will ROCK you as the team touches “the rock” to begin the game is what this is all about.

True. Still prefer something else. Write our own song about it.

Agree and I would say most would agree. As stated above, fits the school better. Good choice of words cliche. I'd prefer Tiger Rag if we can't do "eye of the tiger".

different games.

For example, if next weekend, vs NCS, we're dealing with bad weather from the hurricane, we could use "Rock You Like a Hurricane". It might be cool to mix it up like that - whether it's just playing different cool songs that work great for pregame, or making it fit the opponent, weather, time of day, or whatever. Would be kinda fun not knowing what song will be played. There are loads to pick from!

and what a waste that great entrance song is, totally wasted on that chicken cursed, garbage football program-they should be embarrassed to come out in such a fashion, totally misrepresents what they are. Off the top of my head, Radiohead's CREEP is more apropos-

We will rock you was awesome for the night game though. Eye of the tiger is not nearly as exciting. Plus students like it the new way more.

Just play the first 45 seconds or so - the instrumental part

Once it hits the lyrics it drops down several notches. But those first several seconds would be really cool with the lights and all synchronized with it.

it makes for a great entrance. Not sure you get that with Eye of the Tiger...but I do like the song. Maybe play that when we need a stop or we are running the ball down the enemies throat.

Also like the introduction to Thunderstruck by ACDC...it was my daughter's walkup song.

or maybe something region specific. Like LSU has really leaned into the "Calling Baton Rouge" song recently. Florida with Tom Petty won't back down. Would be cool if we had a song to hand out hat on uniquely.

Eye of the Tiger lacks the intensity that you want for an intro. My personal suggestion would be Thunderstruck by AC/DC. Just the first few seconds.

Auburn uses welcome to the jungle..may or may not have any bearing on this decision, but it's possible.
Also I think the "we will rock you" is meant to reference our "rock".

Cause Queen is woke culture that we are required to subscribe to and use especially since that movie Brain Washed some folks on exaggerating the talent level there. The things on Bohemian Rhapsody harmony wise and more had been done years before by The Beach Boys, The Beatles , Pink Floyd and many others. But they just weren’t homosexuals enough I guess.
