    Which song do you prefer just before kickoff?

    In 2007, Packers marketing whizs began this "G-Force" branding. The song and slogan is probably aimed at the younger generation, hence the Slayer-style shred-rock guitar part.

    But does anyone miss the Stones' "Start Me Up"? Why not try both? G-Force at the beginning of each half, and Stones on the ensuing kickoff after a touchdown? I attended last years Vikes vs. Pack game at Lambeau and was a little turned off by this whole G-Force thing. But that's just me.

    Anyway, what do you think? G-Force or Stones?

    I like the G-force flag and the concept of having the crowd be the force behind the players which gives the home team advantage, but the lyrics to the G-force song really, really suck.
    Stick with the Stones or come up with something as catchy (and no, not the Pat McCurdy song). I love Pat, but his Packer song sucks too.

    Annie: Not a bad idea. Do you have any lyrical suggestions? I'd be happy to pass them along to Packers PR (which I'm planning on doing anyway re: G-Force song). Man I'm a busy person. ha.

    Any of these 'team songs' just make me feel embarassed when i hear them. i mean if they could get some decent lyrics to them or some coherency great, but the g force roar is just UGH. im a student at the U of Minnesota and they got a new 'theme song' and its just mind numbingly stupid. go back to the stones.

    I like the beginning to AC/DC's "For those about to rock" and it would be fitting since they are getting to rock.

    could'nt agree more...the concept is good, but the execution sucks the big one.

    As mentioned in a previous post, the GForce thing has already been taken by Disney.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xx86CxKYtg0]YouTube - Van Halen - Unchained (HD)[/ame]

    The lyrics fit in a way..
    "Change, nothin' stays the same
    Unchained, and ya hit the ground runnin'
    Change, ain't nothin' stays the same
    Unchained, yeah ya hit the ground runnin'"

    Das what I talking about right der.
    I want our defense to inflict pain on each and every opponent that sets foot inside of Lambeau.
    I don't want other teams offense looking forward to coming to lovely Lambeau. I want them terrified and want them leaving with ice bags over their heads, shoulders, chests, arms, etc. especially the Vikings, Cowboys, Bears, Giants, and 49ers.

    Intimidating kick-*** music can't hurt that. Let's rock. Out with the old, in with the new.
