Hi! Long time reader, first time poster!
While "Crazy Train" and "I'm Shipping off to Boston" can help fire up the fans, so many other stadiums seem to use those same songs. I wondered if there were some rocking songs that could have a Notre Dame flavor and still fire up the crowd. My short list features Irish-inspired music that could fire up the crowd (Some might not be family friendly - See: Pogues)
Horslips - "King of the Fairies"
Stiff Little Fingers - "Alternative Ulster"
Dropkick Murphys - "Rock Road to Dublin"
I can't think of rocking songs from the other great ethnic groups that send student to ND (Italian, German, Polish, French-Cajun, Mexican, Cuban, Vietnamese, Puerto Rico, etc.), but that reflects on my lack of knowledge. It would be cool if we could play some rocking polka, zydeco, and mariachi music to pump up the crowd.
