It’s from weird sci-fi/suspense movie, and the specific song comes from a scene in which a monkey beat the ground with a bone.

It's so futuristic.

One of their coaches back in 1984 (I think) went to an Elvis concert, and Elvis came out to 2001. He thought that the gamecocks needed a similar big entrance, so he suggested they copy the use of 2001.

It was Tommy Suggs that saw Elvis & thought it’d be cool for the coots to copy his 2001 entrance. Not sure what year it was


Zager & Evans would be

More apropos. That it came out in '69 is ironic, too!
