    I don’t know y’all. Nothing against the Steelers, but that song never struck me as a hard song. I almost hear tinges of polka rhythm in it at times. It’s always struck me as a cheesy song through it’s crescendo, and I always felt that the song should have stuck with it’s intro theme. To each his own I suppose.

    The Bungals did it again….one and done!!!!

    You have a disco song as your anthem? That’s sad. It really is.

  9. Gwitfu90 says:

    All right, it’s not a disco song. But, it does have has a disco beat. I overreacted, but the Steelers should have a real strong anthem. You’re going to settle on Styx? A band that’s not even from Pittsburgh? We Bears wouldn’t even use Styx as our anthem.

    I was skeptical of the song at first,but Renegade does work well on several fronts. One of the most prominent features is driving into the city from,(from the airport, it is a slow drive, then you enter the Fort Pitt Tunnel and you hear the pulsating reverb and echo of the traffic, and once you exit comes the immediate visual explosion that is Pittsburgh. Especially at night when the fountain is on and lit, one of the stadiums is kicking with the city lights. Matches the song quite well.

    If youre old enough to remember the NFL Films music of the 70s by Sam Spence,its not hard, but the buildup was remarkable, and man would it lay out the emotions. Throw in some John Facenda and that great Sabol editing, good gawd man, they were the reason the NFL is what it is today. Im not a Styx fan, but the song gives pace and timing that allows the visual montage to take hold.
    Lastly, why does it have to be hard? What is hard, n which song would allow the above to happen?

  12. 2nFro1 says:

    A real strong anthem?
    Like what….Da Superbowl Shuffle?
    ouch…sorry, I know it was a low blow.
    my bad

  13. Gwitfu90 says:

    We never used the Superbowl Shuffle as our anthem. But it’s the Pittsburgh Steelers. You had the greatest defense of all time. Do you really need STYX as a band behind your anthem? Even though the Vikings have it worse with Prince.

  14. Gwitfu90 says:

    Renegade is a great song. But, it is NOT a football anthem.

  15. 2nFro1 says:

    I know, I was just kidding about Superbowl Shuffle. But this is the question…what would be a good group/song for this purpose? I’m not a Styx fan (don’t dislike them either), but the tempo works for the visuals, the words hangman’s comein (defense) and (opponent) doesn’t have very long. Eh, like I asked….what would be better?

  16. dbohemian1 says:

    Absolutely hilarious, but fantastic and so much fun at the same time. Great vid.

  17. carogirl07 says:

    Well PITTSBURGH STEELERS IS America’s team…not Dallas anymore! And STYX is a great American band!! Underated for decades! STYX and STEELERS seems a very logical choice to me!…and obviously many others…..OH MAMA!!!!!

  18. Gwitfu90 says:

    @carogirl07 I’m not the one that came up with the term America’s Team.

  19. carogirl07 says:

    @Gwitfu90 no, not saying that came from you… just heard that DALLAS is America’s team for the past 15 yrs and I think the tide has turned…Steelers are truly America’s team. Their jerseys are everywhere and you can’t go into any large city and not find a STEELER bar…that’s all.
