It's Friday, Time to Dance

My biggest pet peeve with college athletics, especially at my alma mater Penn State, is the absolutely atrocious, out-of-place music they play at stadiums and arenas. Zombie nation is played out. Living on a Prayer, Don't Stop Believing and Sweet Caroline don't and shouldn't get anyone pumped up. Those songs are fucking horribly out of place, and if you sing along to those songs at a college game, you shouldn't be there in the first place.

I've said it a million times, the only music that should be played at sporting events is hip hop, because that's pretty much all the players listen to anyway, and Rage Against the Machine, because that shit pumps you up. Well guess what? The George Mason student band went out and put every other college on the planet on blast, doing what I've been begging for years by breaking out the Rage Against the Machine.

Much respect to the George Mason band for that. Hopefully this is a trend other universities pick up on. Because that's the type of music I want to hear at football and basketball games, not girly pop ballads.
