Home | Up | Next


A fight song is a primarily sports term, referring to a song associated with a team. In both professional and amateur sports, fight songs are a popular way for fans to cheer for their team. Although the term "fight song" is primarily an American term, the use of fight songs is commonplace around the world, and may be referred to as team anthems, himnos equipos, or team songs in other countries, such as Australia, Mexico and New Zealand. Fight songs differ from stadium anthems, used for similar purposes, in that they are usually written specifically for the purposes of the team, whereas stadium anthems are not. There is a song by Marilyn Manson entitled "The Fight Song" off of the album Holy Wood

In the United States, fight songs are especially popular for American football, especially at the collegiate and high school level, but several NFL teams maintain traditional songs usually several decades old. Notable fight songs include Skol, Vikings, Bear Down, Chicago Bears, Go! You Packers! Go!, Fly, Eagles Fly and perhaps one of the oldest and most famous, Hail to the Redskins. "HIMNO TECOS" is the fight song of The First Division futbol team UAG Tecos of the private university in Guadalajara.

Hundreds of colleges have fight songs, some of which are almost a century old. Fight songs are laden with history; in singing a fight song, fans feel part of a large, time-honored tradition. The following list contains some of the most established and popular in America.
