Vote for your favorite song to be played at Saturday’s opener

football_poll__ut_martin_1_1408959551

UK has heard our cry for better music at football games, and in addition to the players’ Kickoff Playoff bracket, they’re teaming up with 98.1 The Bull, 100.1 WKQQ, 104.5 The Cat and 103.9 WiLD to poll fans on which song they’d like to hear.

There are four polls for each station’s genre (country, rock, pop, hip-hop) with five options each. You can sample the songs on WLAP’s website and vote for your favorite. Here are the options:

    If no one votes for country, pop, or hip hop, will they just play Judas Priest over and over?

    Heavy on the Pop and Hip Hop, Judas Priest and then Luke and Jason. Poor choices for the rock selections.

      Thank you. I think the selections should entertain the fans but MORE IMPORTANTLY get the players hyped. These songs would do both. The songs in the poll won’t except for maybe fight night and turn down for what.

    If you don’t vote for Stranglehold you are wrong. Simple as that.

    “Stranglehold” and “You Got Another Thing Comin'” are credible for the purpose. The song needs to communicate: “We are going to destroy you utterly. Abandon all hope, ye that blunder to enter here…”

    Therefore, country and pop should not be considered as potential genres for such events. And hip-hop is off-point, as well.

      Then how about playing the first 1:15 of me?

      I agree with everything you’ve said save for the idea that hip-hop is off point. If you want the players to feel ready to go utterly destroy the opposition hip-hop is a must.

    If you try to please everyone you end up pleasing no one. I know we’re in the SEC but country music does not belong at a football game. Its appropriate at tailgates but not when the team and fans are trying to be pumped up.

      Agreed. Exactly what I’m trying to say above.

    Stranglehold?????….um…”CAT SCRATCH FEVER” (notably the song I play right after Queen’s “We are the Champions” after the Cats win a title)…Cat Scratch Fever should be played at every UK game regardless of sport (yes, even golf…liven those greens up)



    • theWilkman

      Cat Scratch Fever is a good song and should be played, but the intro to Stranglehold is pure hype. It’s a go-to song for me at the gym. Want an extra rep or 2? Can’t think of many songs better.

    I think you need to play what the kids like + what will get them and the crowd fired up.

    The White Stripes – Seven Nation Army. Doesn’t matter how many times you play it, the stadium and players will get pumped every time



  22. Uh...What?

    These choices of music are so awful that Hall and Oates would do a better job of pumping people up.

    How is Nelly’s “Here comes the boom” not on the list???? We have a return man named BOOM!!! CWS would go nuts if it played before we are about to return a kick off. Just sayin

    dude, I’m 44 years old; I haven’t heard of most of these songs. Play something that fires up the crowd…Motley Crue: “Kickstart my heart”!

    Really need Rascal Flatts, ‘bob that head’ so we can get a video of Ryan getting pumped up.

    Why can’t we get Sabatoge by the Beastie Boys. It would get the crowd hyped up like jump around does for Wisconsin. Music will still be bad, same old same old.

    NO COUNTRY!!!!!! All the other choices suck. WHEN THE F ARE U GUYS GONNA UNDERSTAND?? The objective is to excite everyone. We are missing out on a great opportunity. The bbn in general are a very emotional fan base. So are 18-23 year old fb players.. Why not gear the music towards that. Not what this person or that person wants. Emotional music, emotional (slow motion) videos on the big screen, pyrotechnics. Look at wrestling. As a kid did u get pumped when the ultimate warrior was INTRODUCED? Wrestling does it all the time. They toy with emotions through sight and sound.You have to play something with balls.Aggresive songs with a specific structure aimed at excitement. A beat, a build up, and then a climax. Example: enter sandman.
    My example.. first 70-90 secs or so of raining blood. No lyrics.
    OTHER THAN MY PERSONAL EXAMPLE WHICH IS DEBATABLE SOMEONE ARGUE MY POINTS. YOU CANT!!

    #7 you are way wrong. It is actually a tad scientific. Music science. Stranglehold is a terrible choice for hyping fb. Period

    The only one on the list I know is “Fishing in the Dark.”

    Might as well hire a rave dj and get the bpm going to excite everyone.
