13451169, Which sport's fans have the most questionable music taste?
Posted by Bambino Grande, Thu Jan-06-22 05:38 AM

This post and question is inspired by following a bunch of tennis accounts on Instagram where 9.5 out of 10 clips opt for some bro-ey dubstep EDM Tiktok mashup with drops and wobble bass
13451170, NASCAR.

13451213, Distance running (all surfaces)
Posted by Walleye, Thu Jan-06-22 02:44 PM
I was nineteen, at the Jim Drews Invitational at UW-Lacrosse the first time I heard a two-hour pregame mix of songs that mention running at least once, broken up only by three different instances of "sandstorm" and I've heard the exact same lineup dozens of times since.

Distance runners are absolute hogs for acknowledgement. It's very embarrassing.
13451274, smh @ three different instances of Sandstorm

13451276, It was stuck in my head during my and only college DNF

It's now the official song of "wisely stopping an 8K race before the diarrhea starts"
13451234, College Football

Stadiums blaring shitty songs and even more shitty marching band covers at half time.
13451236, Oh god - I got to Ann Arbor a couple times a year.
Posted by Brew, Thu Jan-06-22 04:16 PM
My father in law is alumni and has season tix so we are fortunate enough to go to a couple games every year. It's a lot of fun.

But fuck - Mr. Brightside and shit ?? Get that nonsense out of my face.

As a Patriots season ticket holder, I can say they do a decent job at Gillette. Their touchdown song is absolutely abhorrent and offensive, but they play a lot of hip-hop .. Interlude by JayZ really gets the crowd going (i.e. me), they play Snoop, and a bunch of other good stuff. So I can live with that haha.
13451244, As a Michigan alum I am so confused about Mr. Brightside...
Posted by soulfunk, Thu Jan-06-22 04:42 PM
I've literally never heard that song outside of Michigan games. I get that college fan bases get connections to random songs based on when groups go through school and then start being played at the stadium. But the demographics of our fan base at games are so wide in terms of generations, I have no idea how stuff like this happens:

13451246, Hahah right. It's a weird song choice.
Posted by Brew, Thu Jan-06-22 04:45 PM
But I will admit that no matter the song, it is kinda the best when an entire stadium is singing one song in unison - especially one the size of The Big House. Just wish it was almost literally any other song haha.
13451275, gotta be honest, it gave me chills during the B1GCG
Posted by cgonz00cc, Fri Jan-07-22 10:19 AM
to be able to hear it THAT clearly thru the TV at a "neutral" field was pretty amazing
13451280, To be fair EVERYTHING about the OSU game and B1GCG
Posted by soulfunk, Fri Jan-07-22 10:31 AM
was giving me chills. I was rocking Pump It Up non stop for a good couple weeks...

I was in my family room holding up folding chairs and everything and I don't even know what it means. It's provocative - get's the people going...

13451286, Yea for sure. Like I said I wish it was a different song ...
Posted by Brew, Fri Jan-07-22 11:09 AM
... but it's really cool when 111,000 people are cheering in unison regardless of the song.
13451373, Except for HBCU's....

13451375, Idk but there’s a surprising number of ICP fans in OKS LOL
Posted by Amritsar, Sun Jan-09-22 06:00 AM
They seem to gravitate towards college sports

Do with this what you want
13451380, this doesn’t surprise me

13451382, ICP??? Say what now?
Posted by DJR, Sun Jan-09-22 12:45 PM
Who??!!

13451383, RE: ICP??? Say what now?
Posted by Amritsar, Sun Jan-09-22 02:12 PM
I’m not sure if I can name names Hahaa.

during the lesson glory days, some of them came in trying to essentially troll with ICP stuff. And it was received, as you would imagine iCP would be received lol

13451385, Ceej and Ernestlee used to have ICP aliases to mock lessonheads
Posted by guru0509, Sun Jan-09-22 06:39 PM
& the pretentiousness/ clique-yness of music nerds in the lesson.

as you can imagine they thought it was the actual band members ...they got outraged/upset/emotional, and we all had a laugh in OKS.

Satire/parody sometimes goes over some peoples heads, and he clearly didnt get the "joke"

Edit....(We also had Karl Malone and Robert Kelly aliases here. I wonder if he thinks they were real as well)
13451386, Lol, I must’ve missed all that
Posted by DJR, Sun Jan-09-22 06:58 PM
13451835, oh man that shit was hilarious
Posted by 40thStreetBlack, Fri Jan-14-22 09:43 PM
those were the glory days of OKP
13451387, lol yeah I was just gonna mention Ceej and that it was NEVER real...
Posted by soulfunk, Sun Jan-09-22 07:20 PM
And the nuance and layers of comedy on OKS used to be higher than ANYTHING on the net. Literally ANYTHING. Nowhere else can you see agendas and inside jokes that have evolved over multiple decades, outlasting entire generations of athletes.
13451416, This guy is still upset at me lol
Posted by Amritsar, Mon Jan-10-22 12:23 PM
It’s okay if you like ICP fam
13451457, youre honestly unaware of ViolentCeej and Ernie2Dope?
Posted by cgonz00cc, Mon Jan-10-22 04:24 PM

13451840, Ah, yeah I knew that
Posted by DJR, Fri Jan-14-22 10:12 PM
I didn’t see them in that post, so I thought maybe I missed someone else’s passing.
13451469, it literally did, lol.

13451473, Here’s the reply you crave

You seem like such a happy family guy now.

Happy for you
13451480, Thanks for providing the laughs , sport. Happy New Year.

13451472, I know ceej. Not the others
Posted by Amritsar, Mon Jan-10-22 06:48 PM
There’s a current poster named Ceej who I was referring to in my original
Post. You know, named after the front man of ICP

This isn’t difficult
13451484, bruh.
Posted by cgonz00cc, Mon Jan-10-22 08:11 PM
the frontman of ICP is Violent J. also, not really a "frontman" but whatever. his partner is Shaggy 2 Dope

Ceej made an alias inspired by that known as ViolentCeej. ErnestLeee made Ernie2Dope. the other posters from Detroit acted as "juggalos". it was a recurring gag lmao.

Why would you think "Ceej" was in homage to ICP?

i certainly wouldn't have *thought* it was difficult, but im currently re-evaluating that belief...

13451463, Best music I've seen in a minute: SoFi stadium
Posted by T Reynolds, Mon Jan-10-22 04:42 PM
Made Niners / Rams even more enjoyable

Now that they're not playing music on Quinceanera speakers their song choice can shine

Barclays gets a nod for Nets games and boxing events
13451476, SoFi's speaker system is some shit
Posted by Mynoriti, Mon Jan-10-22 06:59 PM
i missed the game yesterday but highlights wise its crazy how many 9er fans were there

Rams games are generally good for at least 30% opposing fans except for teams that travel well like the Cowboys or Steelers. I know there's no shortage of 49er fans but i didn't expcect them to be THAT deep

My only gripe with SoFi was the parking mess. everyone's an asshole lol
13451539, That was a Niner home game bro
Posted by T Reynolds, Tue Jan-11-22 01:40 PM
even Cowboys at Metlife this year wasn't that bad

as well as Rams fans travel too. They come to NYC and ride the subway all week to watch their team make a mockery of the Giants

But then get outbid by tech bros in SoFi's second year in a 12-win season?

Very confused man



13451572, Yeah for some reason i lost sight of the 9ers popularity
Posted by Mynoriti, Tue Jan-11-22 07:22 PM
even though i know several 49er fans. it seemed like when we were young everyone was a Cowboys 49ers or Raider fan.

Only game i went to at SoFi was about 30% Titans fans which was a little surprising but not really.

At the Colosseum there were more Seahawks fans than Rams fans, Even Bucaneers fans were deep which was pretty suprising to me... it was a couple years ago but pre-Brady

i didn't really think Rams fans traveled at all lol
13451477, Barclays has a really good presentation for nets games
Posted by BrooklynWHAT, Mon Jan-10-22 07:10 PM
13451553, the DJ at Barclays for Nets games is an OKP
Posted by guru0509, Tue Jan-11-22 03:44 PM
(im joking but it seems that way)

Ive heard Black Star, Mobb Deep, Pharcyde, SMif N Wessun, LOOTPACK!, Street Biggie (aka Who SHot ya Invincible, Gimme Da Loot ) etc ...lol when I was growing up and went to Pistons games the DJ's only played classic rock anthems.

13451562, There's definitely a difference with what you hear at Barclays
Posted by T Reynolds, Tue Jan-11-22 04:45 PM
vs. MSG or MetLife

It's surprisingly nice to hear 90s rap at a game vs. Gary Glitter
