'Gold Seats' new Purdue anthem: sneak preview!


I've heard from a source that John Cougar Mellencamp has been commissioned to provide an updated, 21st century fight song for Purdue University. It should be in place for the football season so an autotuned version can run during the timeouts or, in the event the game is too far out of reach to need timeouts, to replace "Shout."

I've also received word that one or two people complained "Boiler Up" is stupid and the song will remove any chance to yell that during the song

I have a preview of the chorus and first verse. I think it does a good job of capturing the fan experience in general, but I think Gold Seats establishes enough individuality for Purdue.

Gold Seats

So worth payin' for

Gold Seats

Next year, pay some more

Gold Seats

In the watchin' groove

Gold Seats

Coach, stop whinin' MOVE

Looking back on dumb things I did

I sure was one stupid kid

Timeouts chantin a certain team sucks

Thinkin student seats should cost less bucks

woo-woo um-hum yeah-yeah that's how it is

oh my oh gosh rock that Go Team biz

Now I try and clap politely

tithe or better to the JPC

Just respecting the sport that's me

I won't even boo Will Sheehee

woo-woo um-hum yeah-yeah that's how it is

oh my oh gosh rock that Go Team biz
