    I was scooting around youtube for different stuff on the Packers and our rivals, and came across the I Love My Green Bay Packers song, the Go Pack GO chant (which I love live, but not so much the recorded studio version). And I have to say, I cannot endorse the "I Love My Green Bay Packers" anthem. It reminds me of the sort of "Do the Hokey Polk" fare that they would play at preschool. It is rather effeminate, to say the least. Now at the Kettle of Fish, they play it every time the Pack scores. So on a Pavlovian level, I associate it with some very good memories.
    But I sitll do not like it. We need something aggressive, masculine, something that intimidates opposing players and fans alike, that is epic and proud. I am not sure whether we need something inspired by a bad boy personage akin to the Raiders or something, with the effect of hardcore metal with cookie monster vocals, a la Henry Rollins or Rammstein. I would love something in the hyper-aggressive, militant style of Funker Vogt, but that would be even less marketable to US audiences, particularly in the Midwest.
    Perhaps a better idea is something modeled after the Bears Fight Song, which I actually like a lot. I guess given the mostly respectful rivalry that exists (as opposed to the pernicious hatred I feel for the Vikings defined by gnashing of teeth and homicidal rage), that should not be a surprise.
    So, with that said, WHAT SAY YOU? Yay or nay on the anthem, I Love My Green Bay Packers. As another side note, this anthem can be jettisoned because it seems rather recent, and not at all part of our timeless traditiion and history. There are references to the Clintons, Limbaugh, and even Regis and Cathy. As I wrote this, I rediscovered the GO PACKERS fight song that Bart Starr wrote. If not rembracing the old fhight, someone should supplant the I Love My Green Bay Packers song with somethin g timeless, that is not hoaky or effeminate, and that is actually somewhat intimidating to those who oppose us.
    For your convenience, I am including links to the I Love My Green Packers Song, the Chicago Bears Song, a comical take on death metal with cookie monster vocals, and hyper aggressive aggrotech music from Funker Vogt of Deutschland. I will also throw in the Go Pack Go chant live (very cool) and recorded (effeminate and lame).

    I Love My Green Bay Packers

    The Go Packers fight song from the era of Bart Starr (A LOT more respectable in my view, but not intimidating enough)

    The Bears Fight Song: (although a Packers fan, I think the Bears have the edge so far. It actuallly reminds me of martial music)

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SG8OpQyY6TI&feature=related"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SG8OpQyY6TI&feature=related[/ame]


    Cookie Monster Vocals, with metal pioneer Cookie Monster himself doing vocals, as a possible inspiration for a more foreboding fight song

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWac5UT80no"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWac5UT80no[/ame]

    Hyper-aggressive, militant aggrotech music, Funker Vogt's Under Deck and Harvester of Sorrow. I personally love it. But unless the Packers play in London or Germany, not very likely to be very marketable.

    Go Pack Go (live) I will spare you the recorded version I found:

    To those voting yay, what say you about my charges that it is effeminate and belongs in preschool along with Sesame Street?

    It was a great time when several teams in the NFL had a team band at their stadium playing the teams fight song. The Packer band used to strike up that 60's era number at every kickoff. That's still my fave. Does anyone know if it's available as a ringtone?

    I am not sure that is where my talents lie. To be sure, I think I am a very good writer. I am actually a lawyer, albeit a disaffected one who is looking into changing careers. I suppose I could take a stab at lyrics.
    Seriously though, don;t you find the "I Love My Green Bay Packers" song a bit trite, even childish? It certainly is not intimidating or regal in any way, the way the Bears fight song is.
    That is one reason why I am dissuaded from going to Kettle of Fish. Patrick plays that song every time the Pack scores. I love the Pack, and on a Pavlovian level, I associate the song with very good things--namely everytime the Pack scores. But I think we can and should do better.

    Don't the Redskins still have a band for the fight song. Dallas did until Jerry came and decided why let guys watch a game for free when I can sell tickets to those seats.

    I like the "I love my Green Bay Packers" song. (Though the vid needs to updated with current players. Especially the QB.)

    This one is a bit dated.
    Could change the lyrics to fit for all times.
    It's still fun and awesome.

    I remember hearing the Packers old fight song at the throwback game, was amazed at how some old ladies knew the song by heart. I just like our chant of Go Pack Go. Simple meaningful and seems timeless.

    I like "Feelin' So Fly Like A Cheesehead"!

    And what about "We Love The Green And Gold"? Great chorus on this one ... "I love the Green and Gold! In Autumn sun and Winter cold ..."

    My ears are bleeding green and gold!!! Love all of those!!!

    I write some poetry but I've never laid down tracks for any of them. I don't think they'd do well put to music.

    Got that Fly Eagles Fly song stuck in my head now!!! Help!!!!!!!
