    . . . or sports-related songs.

    Eagle Rock is sensational . . . and I'm
    trying to be objective. The Manly anthem.

    Also;

    You'll never walk alone - Liverpool FC
    Come on aussie c'mon (cricket)
    Aussie aussie aussie (oi oi oi)
    Waltzing matilda (wallabies)- if we could sing like poms.

    Theme from Rocky
    We r the champions

    It's a long wat 2 the top
    (if u want to rock n roll)

    for starters.

      Survivor's-Eye of the Tiger, gets a flogging at sporting events. Also, US college football bands give The White Stripes, 7 Nation Army, a workout too.
      Staying with College football, in '94 the Nebraska Corn huskers used the Alan Parsons project, Sirius, to run onto the field, they call it,
      "Tunnel Walk" & still do.
      Sirius has been used by many over the years, most notably, the Chicago Bulls.

        It's not really a song but I used to like the Crocker's a Wanker call.
        Fanfare For The Common Man by Emerson Lake and Palmer is good too.

          The right song/anthem while watching a sporting highlights package is gold. Rocky and Eagle Rock are definitely favourites.

          I also loved in 2011 there was a song out called 'Grand Final Day' they played it on the Roast. It was a ripper.

          YNWA Liverpool fc has to be the one that's a hair raiser, being a Liverpool supporter it brings me to tears all the time.

              I've always wanted our Eagles to have this song as they run out. I used to get goose bumps thinking of Beaver running on the field to this. A little 1990's though, but it's awesome.

              It's Eagle Fly Free by Helloween. Most of you would be far too young to remember this type of music.

              Helloween – Eagle Fly Free Lyrics
              People are in big confusion
              They don't like their constitutions
              Everyday they draw conclusions
              And they're still prepared for war
              Some can say what's ineffective
              Some make up themselves attractive
              Build up things they call protective
              Well your life seems quite bizarre
              Bridge:
              In the sky a mighty eagle
              Doesn't care 'bout what's illegal
              On its wings the rainbow's light
              It's flying to eternity
              Chorus:
              Eagle fly free
              Let people see
              Just make it your own way
              Leave time behind
              Follow the sign
              Together we'll fly someday
              Hey, we think so supersonic
              And we make our bombs atomic
              Or the better quite neutronic
              But the poor don't see a dime
              Nowadays the air's polluted
              Ancient people persecuted
              That's what mankind contributed
              To create a better time
              Bridge:
              In the sky a mighty eagle
              Doesn't care 'bout what's illegal
              On its wings the rainbow's light
              It's flying to eternity
              Chorus:
              Eagle fly free
              Let people see
              Just make it your own way
              Leave time behind
              Follow the sign
              Together we'll fly someday

                Around 1997 to 2000 I think, seven's AFL coverage ended with "The thing about football," written by Greg Champion.

                It's a great, positive, real aussie footy song.

                  I always thought the West Ham fans song would suit the Sharks supporters in their quest for a GF trophy.

                  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRNzn1lBZt0

                  I'm forever blowing bubbles,
                  pretty bubbles in the air,
                  they fly so high, nearly reach the sky
                  then like my dreams they fade and die.
                  Fortunes always hiding,
                  I've looked everywhere,
                  I'm forever blowing bubbles,
                  pretty bubbles in the air!

                  You can say what you like about Poms, but geez they can create an atmosphere!

                      Something about the old time Manly Warringah Manly Warringah song with the Watzing Matilda tune that still says 'the football anfem' to me. Who cares if we no longer march to the cricket ground or if it is out of fashion. It sounds like a football club anthem, says Manly Warringah and not just manly what is not to love. Wish we kept to tradition like the AFL keep to tradition with club songs, and hell what catchy numbers do we have in league recently ? All the words in the queensland number yippi ie ie yippi yippi ey ha ha.

                        Agree, CIG, I like how the AFL instill that tradition with their club songs.
                        BTW, I thought you meant all the words to the
                        "Queenslander" chant.
                        How does that one go again? :)

                        There is Pat Benetars "hit me your best shot" and "all fired up". You cannot go past "simply the best". That is by far the best. A few Metallica and Motley Crue were good in the old days.

                          I recall Mark Geyer saying his pre game motivational music was Pat Benetar's stuff.

                          In game 2 of Origin '91, he must've played it backwards.

                            We are the Manly boys,
                            We had a win today,
                            We are the boys you know of
                            We showed them how to play,
                            No matter where we'll be
                            Maroon and White you'll see,
                            Oh aren't we a wonderful credit
                            To our locality,
                            So cheer boys cheer,
                            We are together,
                            Every now and then we have a win.....have a win
                            We will play them all around
                            At our home or any ground,
                            If they'll always play a fair and honest game
                            So it's guzzle guzzle guzzle
                            As we pour it down our muzzle,
                            And sing out the order loud and clear, 'more beer',
                            And we will drink all night
                            Until we are very tired
                            In the shade of the Manly Leagues Club.
