    Pep Band/Music Question - Song no longer played

    I have been going to the games for a long time and I just remembered something that ISU no longer does at the men's basketball games. It was a song played by the pep band that got the whole crowd clapping or doing what I would call and "alligator clap." It would get faster and faster and the clapping would too. Does anyone remember this song and/or know why they stopped playing it? Thanks in advance.

    Referred to as "Chants" within the band.

    Didn't realize they stopped playing it.. not sure why. Perhaps a current member could enlighten?

    I think it was politically incorrect if it's the one I'm thinking of.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    I don't know the answer to your question, but just wanted say that if I went to a doctor, and he said I had the 'alligator clap'...I'm pretty sure that would not be an enjoyable situation.

    PC, makes no sense. It's a beer commercial song and everyone drinks beer

    I'll bet if you played that song for a million people, maybe one would recognize it as a former beer jingle.
