Here’s a top 10 list likely to stoke an argument: USA Today has ranked the best college football fight songs, and the University of Tennessee’s “Rocky Top” leads the pack.
The College Football Fan Index provided a platform for people to vote for their school every week — though it’s unclear how much influence voters had on the final list — and Tennessee’s “Rocky Top” reigns. Though it’s not the school’s “official” fight song, the track popularized by the Osborne Brothers is closely associated with the program.
Last year’s winner, “Ramblin’ Wreck from Georgia Tech,” appeared at No. 2; Michigan’s “Victors” placed at No. 3; Notre Dame’s “Victory March” landed at No. 4; and Texas A&M ode “Aggie War Hymn” rounds out the top five.
See a crowd sing “Rocky Top” below (at 1:35) and decide for yourself if it’s worthy of the leading spot.
