    Sorry if this a d_b. I've seen “best unofficial fight song” board http://www.sportsjournalists.com/forum/threads/32908/, but not a poll or favorite official/unofficial college song board. At least I didn't see one when I searched for "fight songs." I picked out some of the best well known songs. This shows a Midwest bias, but growing up, these were the songs I heard the most because they were the games I usually got to see.

    My picks: Victory March-Notre Dame. I hadn't heard this for a while and when I did, I think Saturday fall afternoons. Almost brings me chills. I'm not a big ND fan, but it's like hearing the NBC Olympic song and you get excited about the watching the games.

    Rocky Top-Tennessee: I covered a team that played UT in a nonconference tournament where they brought the pep band, and then they met in the NCAA tournament. Hearing this song 100s of times in a few days got me hooked. It will randomly pop into my head and I'll have to find a version of it online and sing along.

    Aggie War Hymn: When the 12th Man sings this, the press box shakes. Can't beat that.

    http://www.fightmusic.com/ has every major conference team's fight / other school songs...

    Moderators, feel free to move if you think this would be better on "anything goes"

    On Wisconsin was the most played song at one point. Not sure that it's true any more.

    My college had a lame fight song. It was in a weird time/key signature and even the band had a hard time with it.

    I voted for Rocky Top, but I have to give a shoutout to the UAB Blazers' fight song since my youngest is in the band. Heard them play it Saturday for us band parents, as a matter of fact.

    Hail to the mother fuckers
    Hail to the big cock suckers
    Hail Hail to Michigan the assholes of the world.

    I had that song with the burning passion of 1,000 suns. Although, the quick "Hail to the victors" text message is always fun after your favorite team beats them.

    I like USC's, Michigan's and Washington's.
  9. Rocky Top is my second favorite song.

    Every other song ever written shares a tie for first.

    My high school fight song was On, Wisconsin. It's a pretty popular one for high schools.
