Vanderbilt Commodores Basketball: 2011-2012 Memorial Gym Intro Music

It has become a time-honored tradition here at AOG that, as we inch closer to the start of the 2011-2012 Vanderbilt Commodores basketball season, we discuss new options for the pre-tip off musical selection.

Currently, the school plays Zombie Nation, a rather cliched option used way too frequently across the college landscape:

Zombie Nation is okay. The problem is that it's not particularly original or particularly unique to Vanderbilt. What do I think would be perfect?

Johnny Cash - God's Gonna Cut You Down

The Eye Test

  1. The obvious Johnny Cash -- Nashville connection --> CHECK
  2. Preseason All-American John Jenkins? His twitter handle is currently @JohnnyCashVU23 --> CHECK
  3. Intimidating? --> CHECK
  4. Its rhythmic; fans would easily be able to clap along. Or stomp. And sing. --> CHECK
  5. Its unique. I can't think of another program in the country that can claim it as its own. --> CHECK
Should Vandy replace Zombie Nation? If so, should we go with Johnny Cash's God's Gonna Cut You Down? What thoughts or suggestions do you have?
