Touchdown! Music!

April 21, 2017

You can tell what NFL stadium you’re in by what song they play when the home team scores a touchdown.
Football Touchdown Music

New York Giants

When the New York Giants score, the P.A. pumps out “New York Groove,” the 1978 solo hit by Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley.

Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles home stadium play two songs. Immediately after the points are scored, fans hear “My Songs Known What You Did in the Dark” by the pop-punk band Fall Out Boy. After that, they hear “Fly Eagles Fly,” a fight song written for the team in 195X.

Carolina Panthers

“Boom Boom” is a blues classic by John Lee Hooker. The jam band Big Head Todd and the Monsters is one of many artists who have covered it, and it’s that band’s version that plays after the Carolina Panthers score a touchdown.

Minnesota Vikings

When the Minnesota Vikings score, the loud and fast “Song 2” by the British alternative rock band Blue is heard.

Seattle Seahawks

Rapper Macklemore is one of the biggest artists to ever come out of Seattle. His hit “Can’t Hold Us” (because holds are a football term, get it?) plays after every successful Seattle Seahawks touchdown.

Green Bay Packers

Todd Rundgren’s paen to not-working “Bang On the Drum All Day” is currently used after the Green Bay Packers score a touchdown on the icy tundra of Lambeau Field.

Indianapolis Colts

The Indianapolis Colts also used to play “Bang On the Drum All Day,” but now the team uses “Gold on the Ceiling” by the Black Keys.

New England Patriots

Bon Jovi famously originated in New Jersey; they even have an album called New Jersey. And while both New York City-affiliated NFL teams have their home stadiums in New Jersey, it’s for the New England Patriots that Bon Jovi supplies touchdown music: the song “This Is Our House.”

Jacksonville Jaguars

Pennywise’s hard-charging punk rock anthem “Bro Hymn” has been used by multiple hockey and soccer teams in the U.S. and Europe. While the Arizona Cardinals briefly used it, it soon after became the signature touchdown song for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

New Orleans Saints

What plays at a New Orleans Saints game? “When the Saints Go Marching In,” of course.
