Reason #5 To Hate Tennessee: Rocky Top

This may come off as blasphemy, but I actually like the song “Rocky Top”.  I know, I know. 

But take away the song’s affiliation with the University of Tennessee.  Just listen.  It is a song about hillbillies and moonshine.  It is fun little bluegrass song.  There is nothing wrong with it.  It is a good song.

Yet, this is another example of how the University of Tennessee has taken something good, and adulterated it to make it something bad.  B-A-D…BAD!

And they play the damn thing like 30 times a game.  I’ll am already not looking forward to hearing their overrated marching band play this one song over and over again.

In closing, a few jokes: Know why the Tennessee fans wear orange?  So they can have one outfit to wear to the game on Saturday, to go deer hunting on Sunday, and then go to pick up trash on Monday. 

Also, how can you spot a Tennessee fan at a wedding?  Look for the guy in the orange T-shirt.

    I may be dilusional, but no td’s= no Rocky Top!

    Took my (UVA fan) wife to see the UT game in ’91 or ’92 (Heath Schuler tore us apart). Our seats were courtesy of Vol friends, and thus in the Vol section near the band. They played the song for the first time and she said, “Oh, I kinda like this song”. Halfway through the 2nd quarter she was saying, “Do they know anything else?”
