You are wrong, IMO, and how anyone can get "pumped" when the second or third string scores during a meaningless preseason game in a Dome that is a third full baffles me. I can usually manage a golf clap.
However, I do agree that is helpful to have some sort of "signature song", as we've gone through many in the past, but maybe it has to grow organically. Crunk is over (and remember, it came from ATL).
Yea a signature song would help. But I also got the feeling that lots of people were anticipating the Get Crunk song and then were let down when it wasn't played. I know it was preseason, but there were not many people dancing or excited at all compared to when they would play Get Crunk in past preseason games. At least in the area around me and from what I could see when looking around the Dome.
It's pretty much always been terrible. Although watching the players get hyped during, "Back in One Piece" as well as the ridiculous "Whoop There it Is" a year or two after new were actually hilarious and great. In anycase none of it is that important to me. It's enjoyable no matter what.
They should have never made Crunk such a regularly-played, every single touchdown song.
It was much better when it was played in moderation, like once per game, after a game-changing moment or a game-clinching score.
It used to almost be sort of a "surprise" when it was played.
The idea that a song like this should be used as a team anthem 10 times a game was a bad one. They played it out. That song could have lasted another 10 years after the Super Bowl if they had played in sparingly. It will now be virtually impossible to re-gain the magic that song once had and the effect it used to have on the crowd.
the players need to pick a song. thats the reason why halftime got elevated, the players responded to it which got the crowd into it.
The special teams players were the ones who started getting pumped up to Crunk. The fans noticed how much they were dancing and jumping around to it waiting for the kick offs. Then the crowd started really dancing and singing to it and it took off from there.
Everyone was waiting for Crunk during this game even though it was preseason. Yes, we've all heard it a zillion times now but it still gets the crowd moving and more pumped up after a touchdown. And it makes everyone ready to yell our brains out when the opposing defense gets the football.
