    My suggestion for the Crew's version of "YNWA" that everyone has continually clamored to find.

    1) A song that everyone knows
    2) Right tempo
    3) Right message
    4) Ohio band

    Thank you for bringing this topic back up. I've always wished we could do something like this for the team.

    And to contribute, I'll go ahead and throw in the standard "Yellow" nod. The more I think about it though, it's a bit wordy, and your choice is one that everyone knows, or at least knows the tune enough to hum it.

    I will lead the charge to make this an anthem, do EVERYTHING in my power to make it happen....on one condition: footy5 must LEAD the song from the front of Nordecke, shirtless and with a red bandana tied around his neck, just like Mercury here, and also with a giant black duster on his upper lip as well.

    I would have thought that #4 would be "Ohio-related Rogers & Hammerstein tune".

    Is there one of those?

    Anyway, there is a pretty rich trove of Ohio-based bands, though it might be hard to find too many anthemic-type songs outside of what you've already identified.

    QFT.

    Also, I'm sitting here watching the end of KU vs UNC, thinking that it would be cool if we had something like the "O-H-I-O" chant that goes around Ohio Stadium at football games, or like Kansas's "Rock Chalk Jayhawk," or even like the "Liverpool, Liverpool" chant. Something slow and building that will be easy for people to learn and will go for longer than 19 seconds.

    Maybe a version of the refrain from the above GBV song: "Don't Stop Now, Columbus. Don't Stop Now, Columbus."

    Awesome. If we did this, I would wear a suit to games and comb my hair like this.

    What do you think of First Kick's songs/chants? Done well? Not enough? Lulls? Constant throughout the match? Con huevos?

    Just now seeing this.

    I was in the other North Corner (Northwest), and the "We Are...Massive" chants sounded a bit weird from my seat. Just took a while to realize you were saying "massive."

    For some reason "massive" sounded like "Penn State," probably because I've been conditioned to hear that.

    That song went well, even doing the COLUMBUS part correctly.

    When it comes to Come on Columbus Crew (sung to Karma Chameleon) at :20 this is proof that it works HIGHLY WELL when done at a quicker tempo instead of a sluggish tempo.

    Ran across this today. Listen to the whole thing - good chorus and message. Heard it and pictured the stadium up singing -



    Carry On by Fun...its acoustic.

    Before the season is over...I am going to host a cookout and make everyone sing Coldplays' Yellow.
    It will be on youtube.com and will go viral much the same as that other Puma's video did.

    ...that's my goal.

    In honor of the Crew's recent twitter issues here is a new chant
    Suck One
    Suck Two
    Suck Three points from you.

    I probably needs work.

    I put this up elsewhere & I'll post it again in hopes that it comes to pass.

    If anyone is interested in a chant idea for Jairo Arrieta, here is a link to the song's Wikipedia page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alouette_(song)

    We should somehow integrate it into this:


    "Six foot, seven foot, eight foot BUNCH" could become
    "Suck one, suck two, suck three POINTS...."

    perhaps after that:
    "The Crew come and we win at home"

    or something

    I really like this and its not hard to learn once we can intigrate our own words....Plus no other club in MLS currently sings it to my knowledge.
