    Kickin' Renegade to the curb

    So lets say the Steelers do the right thing and get rid of that outdated song that, honestly, is just a bad song. Really, it's a bad song. I hated it when it was new and I hate it now. Always have and always will.

    Anyway, sorry about that rambling, but did I mention that I really hate that song?

    Ok, so they're going to kick it to the curb...be done with it...and it's your job to replace it. Bear in mind all the circumstances involved...it's an athletic event and your job is to pick something that pumps up the crowd but at the same time can be considered family friendly since people of all ages will be in attendance, as well as people who are deep in their faith and would find the Steelers using a song containing profanity as offensive. Heck, some people who aren't religious might not like that. You get the point...the song has to do what it's intended to do and not offend. So what do you choose?

    I believe my choice would be right for many, many reasons. The lyrics are appropriate for athletic competition yet they shouldn't offend and the music certainly should get the energy flowing...especially the transition that takes place at the 57 second mark. The beginning starts off uptempo with the drums, then the guitar comes in, then it goes into a slow building, almost anthemic battle mode, picks up tempo again, then comes that sweet ass transition (that gives me goosebumps because it's soooo effing good) and then it goes into the song. Outstanding!!!

    I give you Rush - One Little Victory

    A certain measure of innocence
    Willing to appear naive
    A certain degree of imagination
    A measure of make-believe

    A certain degree of surrender
    To the forces of light and heat
    A shot of satisfaction
    In a willingness to risk defeat

    Celebrate the moment
    As it turns into one more
    Another chance at victory
    Another chance to score

    The measure of the moment
    In a difference of degree
    Just one little victory
    A spirit breaking free
    One little victory
    The greatest act can be
    One little victory

    A certain measure of righteousness
    A certain amount of force
    A certain degree of determination
    Daring on a different course

    A certain amount of resistance
    To the forces of the light and love
    A certain measure of tolerance
    A willingness to rise above

    I heard Renegade today on the radio. I thought about the Steelers, and then changed the dial. I don't hate the song, but it is a bit dated and old. No replacement songs come to mind.

    Disturbed - Down With The Sickness

    A few curses they'd have to clean up but would be a perfect song.

    Did you even listen to the song or read the lyrics? It's perfect.

    As for Metalica...bleh...I've got them highly ranked on my most over rated bands of all time list. Somewhere near Styx! :P
