Better music when the D is on the field would be great.  A little Crazy Train or Hells Bells before a big play or series would be ok with me.  Perhaps I am old and that is outdated. 

 

I like the D players being on the jumbotron telling the crowd to get up and make some noise.  The players could have been more colorful but still pretty cool.

I do like "Sweet Caroline" as a victory song. Who doesn't love to drunkenly sing that chorus?

 

Communists, likely.

I caught some crappy sounding generic country music playing in the pregame. We need to cut that crap out.

Amy Tobey, whose job from 1998 to 2004 was to decide which music would be played at Fenway Park, told the Globe that she had noticed the song at other sports events and decided to try it over Fenway's speakers.

 

 

 

They did not originate it.

It holds a special place in my heart simply because it was played every night at the bar I went to most in Greenville, 519.  If you've ever been you know what I'm talking about.

It isn't nearly as bad as the over played techno song that seems to play in most college and NFL stadiums. Gamecock fans know what song I am talking about.

Oh and Seven Nation Army seems to be trending now too. Drives me crazy!

I don't know that it was copied everywhere... I think it is more of a coincidence that multiple teams around the country play it as a victory song. Same as multiple teams playing the "YMCA" or "Whoop There it is"... 

 

The Boston Redsox just made Sweet Caroline mainstream by winning World Series titles.. As many other fans have stated, Carolina has been playing Sweet Caroline after wins at home since before the Boston RedSox finally won a world series.

Sweet Caroline needs to go. Is it good? Yep. But since other teams use it, it has no originality or meaning. Not to mention we didn't even use it first.
