I realize Barwin calling it official doesn't make it so, but if the defensive players themselves are pushing it, the stadium staff is following their lead, the fans are responding to it, and the play on the field reflects the results we want, I'm not really concerned with those not liking it.
This is the one and only answer. What does it matter as long as it gets the players and the fans pumped up and gets the stadium louder at the right times? I'm fine with Bulls on Parade.

If our goddamned nickname ends up being Bulls on Parade I'm going to neg rep everyone who endorsed it so many times they'll have a negative number under their name. Then I'll send out a herd of gay bulls to crap in their front yard. Then I'll hire a bunch of evil clowns to scare their children.

And don't think I won't.

Brian Cushing thinks it's lame. The Cush does not like it.

I think his opinion should matter, all things considered.

Well the guys in that picture I posted above would probably like it.

The members of RATM are avowed Marxists (you know, communists). This is not even speculation, but by their own words.

The song is about the military industrial complex that perpetuates wars for profit.

It seems like everyone is just focusing on the name and the opening riff of the song, but everything else about the identity is just wrong.

Beyond that, it's just a stupid name for a stout defense. They are not parading around out there. They need a name that represents the grit and aggressiveness of our D. Parades are pageants. They are spectacle. Nobody fears a parade.
That sums it up. The identity is wrong.

And people older than 40 --half of the entire NFL viewing audience-- have never heard of the song. How are they supposed to associate parades with a feared defense? It doesn't work.

Well, I'm 43, listen to The Buzz, and am well familiar with RATM among other bands played on that station. As are many of my contemporaries. Might want to up the age on that a little.

I hardly sit around in a rocking chair, listening to elevator music. I can rock out with the best of 'em!

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!
This. Bring back the House of Pain.

Why would bulls be parading around a slaughter house?
Why would bulls be parading in a slaughter house?
Why would bulls be parading in the first place? Is it a pride festival? Will there be rainbows?
I think you get the point. If you have to think too much about what a nickname means than it shouldn't be.

Plus if you name a bad ass defense a gay name the football gods will smite us.

Now that is funny and coming from a fellow old person too. I never heard of this band, never heard of the song, and had to look up the lyrics as I didn't understand a word they said.

I was old in '97 when they came out (over 50) and all kids had long since left to play their music elsewhere.

If Bulls on Parade is what works, far be it from me to get in the way of the youngins among us even though I totally agree with Thorn. As long as they keep winning they can call themselves twinkle bullettes and wear ballet slippers for all I care.

You know, at first, I had no earthly idea that was the name of a band, I just thought that it sounded absolutely horrible! LOL
