Let’s just get straight into the list.
5. You Give Love A Bad Name by Bon Jovi
Why? Well this is the first song on any smart mans “get psyched mixed”.
Regardless, this song gets people fired up, the energy out of the gate mixed with the intensity of the first guitar section would get any crowd fired up.
Only reason this song is five is because I’m not convinced that a lot of my fellow students know it… which is sad yet understandable since this song is absolute gold.
4. Big Ole Cock by Patrick Davis
If you don’t know this… shame on you. Patrick Davis is a huge gamecock fan and literally the entire song is about the football team, every line.
If you think I’m kidding, go look it up. Now there’s 2 versions, one older and one newer, and while I prefer the older one more people could relate to the new one referencing Clowney and others, even though I believe a Georgia waterboy is mentioned… maybe that name should be replaced with the man killing the recruiting game right now in Shane Beamer.
Anyways if you’ve never heard it, go listen.
3. Wagon Wheel by Darius Rucker
I’ve been to my fair share of Gamecock games… but I’ve never heard 80 some thousand people scream “Rock me momma like the wind and the rain” and I think that’s a problem.
Now I may be wrong or something, but when one major alumni sings a song almost every human being knows, I feel like said song should be blasted so they can hear it in Timbuktu. Wagon Wheel is a tried and true classic that everyone can appreciate, and I’d like to assume 95% can sing along too or at least learn.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned about hype game day songs, is if people can sing them, that’s a HUGE plus.
2. Levels by Avicii
Sandstorm is awesome. Don’t get me wrong, I love it. I love the towels waving to the beat, I love the history.
However… there is an EDM song out there that can get any party/game/car ride/whatever electric the moment it comes on. This… this song… is Levels.
The literal anthem of a crazy weekend, this song will get any crowd of people electric the moment it comes on. I’m sure some older folks won’t know it, but when the student section is jumping up and down screaming “woooooaaaaahhhh sometimes” they’re not gonna care.
I mean even put it in reverse and we’ll love it even more. This song should just simply be played at every game, event, party or anything else ever.
1. Rooster by Alice In Chains
Cmon… you knew this was number one. The song is badass. Plus, WE ARE GAMECOCKS. LITERAL ROOSTERS.
The chorus speaks for itself, listening to the best grunge vocalist of all time scream about the rooster and how “we ain’t gonna die” I mean cmon people. This is made for USC football. This is made for us.
Learn the words, learn the rhythm and for a 4th quarter, let’s all be screaming rooster at the top of our lungs having every kid on another team wonder what the hell we’re screaming about.
This song would put fear into our opponents and I genuinely mean that. Please anybody reading this let’s get this movement going ASAP.
