    Bulls on Parade is just gay.

    Sounds like dancing bulls with pink tutus on.

    Think I read Barwin or one of the guys reference this as well, I think it's pretty cool.

    Wow. Offensive much?

    SMFH.

    Anyway, love the reference. Rage against the Machine is far from "gay" (Excuse the hate mongering.)

    Not referencing any song or singer - just the term Bulls on Parade as a description of our defense in anyway just conjures up pictures of cows in tutus - sort of like the dancing elephants/hippos in Fantasia.

    The crowd sure as hell got into it, as well as the players. Barwin seems to be leading the charge. I like it.

    It's a pretty powerful song by a band called RAGE against the machine. It all works too well!

    Love the song. Hate the name.

    Bulls on Parade.



    One doesn't fit. It doesn't inspire fear. The song does, but I don't think we'll get Gruden & Tirico to sing it for us on MNF.

    It would of been better if the nickname of the defense was "Raging Bulls"

    Bulls on Parade is inspiring to ballerina fans and conjures up visions of David Carr. It must die quickly and never be uttered again. However, Rage rocks.

    If you don't know the song "Bulls on Parade", then don't even comment about it. Listen to this, then come back and have an opinion on it.

    Get your mind off of the gay pride parade and imagine an arena of angry bulls that see nothing but red. Then imagine that hook from the song on repeat and fill your head with rage.

    Maybe it will work...

    Btw, I'm not to big on nicknames for defenses. But I do like to see my fellow fans get a little nuts with me. For some reason that got the stadium rocking, along with the players. I'm for whatever works.

    Been listening to Rage for three decades, and have seen them three times, save your lecture and stick to shining shoes. It is a lame application for a nickname. As a song to inspire the play on the field and to get the fans raging, yes.

    lol! Lecture? Simply asking people to be informed of the song from which the name derives is a lecture? Wow dude, chill out. People fly off the handle all the time about stuff they don't know about, I'm trying to help inform the masses who may think it's a "gay" name or otherwise. Is it really too much to ask that people listen to a 3 minute song before jumping to conclusions?

    Holy crap, that song is called Bulls on Parade?!?!

    What a terrible title.

    I would have figured it was called Rally Round the Family or Pocket Full of Shells.

    The song rocks. I've always loved it.

    Title = lame.

    I think the idea of the song is that the bulls are on a military type parade, not one with a 50ft Bullwinkle.
