Anyone else catch Renegade on American Idol last night?

Wasn't the best performance ever, but it had me pumped.

I swear I saw James Farrior walking out of the locker room on the screen in the background.

My wife says I'm delusional.

Either way I was ready for some football.

Most inspiring AI song ever!!!!!!!!

WoooooooooooooooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOO!

Is it a sign we're gonna win #7 this year?

Yea, I was excited when I heard it was going to be on, but once it lost the context of the Steelers, it lost some of its luster to me. Plus, they butchered it.

it sucked that they butchered it for sure. but it took me to another place for a minute.

made me think we were going to get a pick 6 on the next play or something like that.

:) Good times there. I won't bother to find the youtube video of that from inside Heinz Field.

I thought of the Steelers for about 1 second, then remembered what I was watching and who was singing it.

Not sure if anyone plays the video game Rock Band, but they recently added Renegade as a downloadable song. So you could rock out to it every game day (if you were so inclined).

That works if you want to see hitting from the start of the video on the jumbotron.

I hated the song Renegade until I saw how it was used at Heinz Field.

The video makes the song.

I'm not sure any other song would lend itself to the way that video builds up momentum.

That's what's really cool.

Not so much the song.

But the song's grown on me.

Given some time I could find plenty of songs much better than Renegade that have the same "start slow then kick in" flow to them.

Cool. Go for it. Make a video to go with it. And see if you can get the Steelers to use it :D

My favorite on Rock Band is "Don't Fear the Reaper" because if you use the microphone, you are supposed to hit it with your hand whenever that little circle appears in the lyric line at the top of the screen. The circles match-up perfectly to the "More Cowbell" parts of the classic SNL "Blue Oyster Cult: Behind the Music" skit featuring Christopher Walken. You can really channel your inner Will Ferrell when playing that song.

When the song started I looked at my wife and said "You know what that is, don't you"? We got all jacked up, even thought the delivery sucked. She made me put that song on my iPod a couple of months ago and we always listen to at leat once on a road trip....makes me think of my cross country trip to tne 'burgh every time!

There is no better moment than when they "push the button" at Heinz. My Nation crew and I call it pushing the button when they play Renegade. OHHHH MAMAAAAAAAA!

I tried to find a picture of Woodley spitting into the air that starts Renegade, but no luck. I put "Woodley Renegade" into MSN Image Search, and the 8th picture that popped up is one of the photoshops that I did for our bye week contest (the one where I put rpmpit's head on Jason). Pretty cool.

Roughly midway through the third period tonight in the Pens-Caps game, Versus comes back from commercial, and you can hear Renegade playing in the background prior to a faceoff. Doc Emerick makes a comment about all of the Terrible Towels waving (when it is supposed to be a white-out). Gotta love it.

Why don't the Steelers officially share the terrible towel with the pens and the buccos?

I hate those white towels at pens games.

Bring your terrible towels Pittsburgh.

They have real power.
