If you've been following this blog for a while then you know that we love The Vols. Any chance to combine Tennessee football with Knoxville music, we consider a win, and the storyline for last week's Georgia game was too good to pass up.
The song in this video is "Let Loose" by The Monday Movement. Sonically, the build-up fit the progression of the game well crescendoing into complete revelrous chaos. More importantly, the lyrics were perfect. This was the game that The Vols let loose, and being able to put Butch Jones' pregame speech telling his players to go on instinct and not worry about making mistakes gave me chills. I hope it does the same for you. Still the lyric that is yelled as the team rushes across the field in celebration is "Still we've got a lot of ground to gain," perfectly describing this team at this point in the season.
The Monday Movement is an alt-rock band from right here in Knoxville. If you like what you hear, you can get a free download this song and more here.
