    Jock Jams....

    Totally random thought here but does anyone else feel it's ridiculously lame to be playing club music from the mid-90's during timeouts and other stops in the action?

    "Are you all ready for this?" I mean, seriously....

    Well until there is a new release of music that actually both pumps people up AND makes the old people stand and clap, you get "The Hey Song", "Mortal Kombat", and "Zombie Nation".

    How many things can ISU fans find to ***** about?

    This isn't as over the top as a lot of posts, but come one. It's common at most arenas. Have any better ideas?

    Somewhat, but our crowd needs something to clap to, a strong beat. I wish we had our own thing that was unique. I like things like Whatcha Gonna Do or some of the band cheers, but not enough people get into them, especially outside of the student section. Jock Jams are like a trigger for people to stand and clap in unison. Like how my dog knows it's time to eat because the alarm clock goes off.

    If the song gets people up and clapping, I like it.

    I agree with this. It's not perfect but it works.

    And given the, uh, demographics of the ISU fan base, that beat needs to be as strong and discernible as possible.

    All I know is that I'm psychic. I picked that the Jukebox song of the week was going to be Shout 4 times in the row.

    To be honest, I probably would not have noticed myself if my older brother hadn't noticed it and poked fun at it in the first place.

    I'm not a huge music/rap guy, so I don't have any specific songs or anything that I could put in as a substitute, but seriously, there has to be at least a couple of songs from, oh, the first decade of the 21st century that we could use instead of something from close to 20 years ago.

    Really? Every college basketball arena plays music like this. Plus, that jock jams song has been used between announcing lineups and the start of the game for as long as I can remember. What else do you want them to do? Another pump up the pasta?

    Jock Jams was the only reason some of those timeouts were as hyped as they were. Every Jock Jams song they play is better for momentum than the pep band playing (minus the ISU fight song).
    I like Jock Jams for the simple fact that EVERYONE was up and clapping at times, which doesn't happen with Welcom to the Jungle.
