    This is a good subject. The Texans really need to get a good theme song that fans can take a lot of pride in. I used to love the Houston Oiler song back in the day.

    Houston Oilers #1!! We got the offense, we got the defense. I can't remember the entire song, but it was great when the entire astrodome used to sing along.

    I saw your blog and checked out the new song, but did not leave a comment on the Fanhouse page. I liked it.....pretty catchy tune.

    That is such a great song and it should get our team pumped up and ready for the start of the season.

    Great musician have tried but noone has yet to come up with Greatness for a team song.

    All the entries seem to express what the songwriter wants to say when the song need to be what the Texan fan wants to say.

    Actually, I can't say I am really a fan of the song, though I can understand why some might like it.

    It makes me want to drink wine because the song reminds me of cheese.

    Well, my big mouth keyboard will proably get me in trouble, BUT, that is absolutely the most HORRIBLE song I have ever heard!! It made me want to crawl in a hole and hide!! I would be completely embarrassed if they played that THING at a game!! AWFUL!!!!!! If you guys want us to be tagged "hicks from Texas" then promote that tune. It belongs in TENNESSEE!! JMO!!!

    My mom taught kindergarten and said the song sounded like a Hooked on Phonics song for kindergarten. I don't think she cared for it went she said OMG. That's her opinion but the more I listen to it I think I agree with her and She Tex.

    Wayull, I don't think it is the most horrible song ever - but it sho nuf ain't the best...or should I say bayust. I did find myself putting my head in my hands half way thru it. It is better than that last one McNair had the Pep band playing last year.

    I think we are still a team in search of a signature song.

    I have come to love "Football Time in Houston." It's a pavlovian response to hearing it after TDs. I know the words, but it is hard to sing on key. Doesn't stop me though.

    I agree. Heck, I wish we could just make "Thunderstruck" our song. Anytime I hear it, I get pumped for football season.

    As for this one...not a big fan. I'm not a fan of any of the Texans songs to be honest. The Clay Walker one is my favorite, but that's because this one along with that godawful pep band/fight song that was played last year are pretty bad.

    Me either Steph! I think they need to leave well enough alone and quit messin with something that apparently has worked for several years now. I prefer the high school anthum type song they put out a couple years ago over the above mentioned hillbilly from hell song though!! :)

    If Clay sang "Houston TexANS," instead of "Houston, Texas," I would like it much better. JMO!! Doesn't really matter all that much though.
