I'm genuinely surprised that Zombie Nation isn't on that list, though I don't think it should be.

Leaving off "Rock and Roll" (Gary Glitter) is a bad omission though. This is, actually, a pretty horrible list for a football game. Baseball or basketball, I can see it ... but most of these don't belong in a football stadium.

120% agree with both Zombie Nation and Rock and Roll....they could easily replace Montell Jordan (even though I rock it @ karaoke all the time ;)) and Whoomp There It Is .... I think that song died out from arenas 10 years ago even....

Yeah, now it's things like For Whom The Bells Tolls by Metallica and Back In Black by AC/DC

Alabama plays Hells Bells on every 3rd down and the crowd absolutely goes nuts.. not sure if anyone else uses it.

Also have to add White Stripes Seven Nation Army.

This isn't top ten songs to get a crowd of drunk college kids in a bar rev'd up :DActually ... honestly ... the list does sound more like a bar list than a stadium list.

Though, there's a big difference between football stadium songs and basketball/hockey arena songs. This seems to be the latter and not the former.

Alabama plays Hells Bells on every 3rd down and the crowd absolutely goes nuts.. not sure if anyone else uses it.Practically everyone uses it. Hells Bells or For Whom The Bell Tolls.

The beginning of this song is finding it's way to a lot of football stadiums and basketball arenas....
