    When I was at Soldier field sunday, after the bears would score a to..field goal, they would play this "Bare Down" (or Bear Down...whatever) fight song, and some people would sing to it and stuff, got me to wondering..does GB have a song(even a lame song like this bear down song) after a score?

    PS - had a good time, bears fans didnt have anything to say until the 4th quarter.

    They still play it after a TD and we used to have a fight song but I think it went away some time in the 50s.

    Hahahaaaa... good one Obi1!
    The Packer fight song is called "Go! You Packers Go!" and was written in 1931 by Eric Karl.
    The Houston Oilers had one but it was extremely gay and is probally why they are history.
    The Bears song "Bear down, Chicago Bears" Dates back to 1941 and was written by Al Hoffman who also wrote "If I Knew You Were Coming I'd 'A Baked a Cake" It ranks with ''Notre Dame Victory March'' (1909) and Michigan's "Hail to the victors" (1898) as the most recognized fight songs of any sport. The Bears actually had another fight song from 1922 but it never caught on the way "Bear Down" did.
    The Redskins fight song "Hail to the Redskins" dates back to 1938 and is still played at every Redskins game by a live band.

    Bear down, Chicago Bears, make every play clear the way to victory;
    Bear down, Chicago Bears, put up a fight with a might so fearlessly.
    We'll never forget the way you thrilled the nation with your T-formation.
    Bear down, Chicago Bears, and let them know why you're wearing the crown.
    You're the pride and joy of Illinois, Chicago Bears, bear down.

    Here is the Packers' old song:

    "Go! You Packers Go!"

    Hail, hail the gang's all here to yell for you,
    And keep you going in your winning ways,
    Hail, hail the gang's all here to tell you too,
    That win or lose, we'll always sing you praises Packers;

    Go, you Packers, go and get 'em,
    Go, you fighting fools upset 'em,
    Smash their line with all your might,
    A touchdown, Packers, Fight, Fight, Fight, Fight!
    On, you Green (Blue) and Gold, to glory,
    Win this game the same old story,
    Fight, you Packers,
    Fight, and bring the bacon home to Old Green Bay.

    [align=center]GO! YOU PACKERS, GO!

    "Official song and dedicated to the Green Bay Packers."

    Words and music by Eric Karll. 1931 (c)
    Performed by the NFL Marching Band, Bernard Green, Conductor.
    Introduced by Quarterback Bart Starr.
    Recorded July 7-8, 1960.
    Produced on RCA Victor LPM-2292.
    (It seems there are slightly different words to this song.
    These are the words John Heim suggested on his site.)

    ----------------------------------------------------

    Bart Starr shouts: Go! You Packers, Go!

    Band plays: Fight, you Packers, fight,
    and bring the bacon home to old Green Bay!
    Hail, hail, the gang's all here to yell for you,
    and keep you going in your winning ways!
    Hail, hail, the gang's all here to tell you, too,
    that, win or lose, we'll always sing your praises, Packers!
    Go, you Packers, go and get 'em!
    Go, you fighting fools, upset 'em!
    Smash their line with all your might!
    A touchdown, Packers! Fight, fight, fight!
    Fight on, you Blue and Gold, to glory!
    Win this game, the same old story!
    Fight, you Packers, fight,
    and bring the bacon home to old Green Bay!

    here is the lions fight song, I feel like contacting William Clay Ford to get it changed to "I'm a Loser" from three doors down or "Loser" from Beck.
    Forward down the field,
    A charging team that will not yield,
    And when the Blue and Silver wave,
    Stand and cheer the brave!
    Rah! Rah! Rah!
    Go hard win this game!
    With honor you will keep your fame!
    Down the field and gain,
    A Lion victory!
    - - - by Graham T. Overgard, 1939

    Packer fight song was played by the Packer Band (disbanded years ago.)for many, many years for touchdowns, kick offs etc. I did hear a recorded shorted version of it played once during the Tenn- Packer Monday night football game last year.Apparently there is a copy of the song in the recorded music played at Packer games. There were many complaints about the type of music played by the Packer band through the years by younger Packer fans. The Packers disbanded the Packer Band & The Packers hired a advertising Company to pick out recorded music and plan the whole recorded music per formance along with the Advertising which appears on The Scoreboard. The man in charge of the Ad Company is an ex WBAY TV Sports anchor. By the way the Packers have to pay Lawrence Welk Music Company every time the song is played because the original music patient ran out years ago and was not renewaL The Lawrence Welk Music Company picked up the patient and now collects a fee everytime Go Packers go is played. I believe this also happened to "On Wisconsin" song also and Welk Company picks up a fee when that is played. Welk Company specialized in this sort of thing.--------PWT 36 long time (life time) Packer fan located in DePere, Wi, just five miles from historic Lambeau Field just doing my job as Historian of packerforum.
