Yes, but i'm kinda old and don't care for it. I'm more into 70's rock. Bulls on parade is just a terrible name for a great defense. It just doesn't sound right to me.

DUDE!!!! I was 3rd row for that concert. That's when I became a die hard Met fan.

Didn't want to start a new thread, and this seems to fit here.

Houston Press has come up with 10 songs for players, and one for the team. Some are pretty good. A couple of the ones I like best:

JJ Watt - Ironman (Black Sabbath)
TJ Yates - Who Are You (The Who)
Texans Team - I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide (ZZ Top)

I like it!!

It represents everything that this defense is all about. Plus, it's just a kickass song from the best era of Metallica, IMO.

I don't like the tendency to grab anything with "bull" on it.

Bulls are not predators. They are cows with horns. Yeah, they can be mean, but so can rats.

At the end of the day cows...errr...bulls chew cud. They are not hunters, they don't eat meat, and they are generally pretty stupid.

And calling Reliant "the slaughterhouse"? Isn't that where they take cows and bulls to be killed to make them into hamburger and steaks? That doesn't represent too well, considering the Texans mascot is a bull and all.

I think we should resurrect the "House of Pain" and call the defense Damage, Inc. They go together!

I like where your head's at.
But, looking at the injury list, it seems like all the damage is being done to our guys.

This has been a crazy year for injuries. "Let the Bodies Hit the Floor" for a new team song?

I think if we took a poll, "The Bull Rush" would win.

The name actually struck me a long time ago, but we never had the defense to live up to it. We sure do now.

And I think the team song should be A New Level by Pantera. The lyrics are somewhat appropriate.

Well,

There are 11 players on defense, and the crowd is the 12th man, so collectively we could be The Dirty Dozen.

LOL, carry on.

For the stadium, we could play off the title of the movie The Last House on the Left (and The House of Pain).

The Zombies.

Or, The Walking Dead.

Think about it: A zombie just keeps coming after its prey. You can chop and arm off, and it doesn't matter. It keeps coming after you.

And play some Rob Zombie when they come onto the field.

Default Re: Name Our Defense

cmon people.

FOr one.. 99% of the suggestions on here are just horrible. Most of them sound like the title to a really cheesy 1980s action movie. Which... is not surprising since most of them are being thought up by folks who are stuck on 1980s rock music .


Why dont you just embrace bulls on parade? FOr one.. its not gay, or lame.. a parade is a military affair and it brings to mind bulls stomping through the streets. For two.. it has a great football song attached to it. For three.. the players and media both seem to be embracing it.

I mean so many of you get on here every year and talk about "what should be name our offense/defense/stadium".. and the suggestions that follow are always a little bit pathetic and a whole lot of cheesy. Now, finally... they have actually come up with a name (a pretty cool and fitting one imo), and you same folks are trying to shoot it down.

Makes no sense. Do you really think that they are just going to pluck some obscure cornball name from some obscure cornball rock band and start calling themselves that for no reason other than "it would be an awesome title for a chuck norris movie" ???

No.. nicknames happen on their own.. which is how bulls on parade is developing. A good song played at the right moment in a historic season. The only thing that will stop it is an idignant outcry from a bunch of middle-aged fans that REALLY wanted the team to be called "Death Corp." so that they would have an excuse to get it ironed on to the back of their karate gi.

Just let it happen. Trust me.. the name is great.
