Default Re: Simple question: Do you like the nickname "Bulls On Parade"?

Rage Against The Machine are known for their political outcries. A good bunch of their songs are always critical of the party in charge. I actually love their songs. Not meaning to get political here, but their songs are a perfect example of freedom of speech. They always sang a song that a majority of America probably wouldn't agree with, but it was their right. I have mad respect for them for that, and Tom Morrello is a guitar god. Right up there with Hendirx and Harrison.

Just to clarify, I don't agree with the meaning of their songs either. For starters, the majority of their songs were written while I was still very young, so I wasn't involved with the issues that were going on at the time. I don't accept anarchy either, which is what they promote in a way. Just because I don't like the meaning doesn't mean I don't like their songs. They are so awesome.

Political issues aside, (and I only made those points because some of the posters seemed to have a problem with the meaning of the song rather than the sound of it) I love the nickname. It's like what FS said, it gets you revved up. Also, it doesn't matter if this board doesn't like it, because it has been etched into the hype machine. They play it at every game, and even the coaches tweet about it with #bullsonparade Whether we like it, or not, it isn't going away anytime soon.

I feel like, years from now we will look back and think fondly of it. When I was younger, I used to hate when the Astros would play the buzzing sound when one of the Killer B's came up. I found it annoying, but I think back on it now, and I miss it. (Well, I also miss the Astros winning too.)

So, yeah. Regardless on if we like it or not, We still have an awesome defense. GOOOOOOOOOOO TEXANS!!!!!!
