Oakland Raiders: The Top 20 Songs That Should Be the Silver and Black's Anthem

0 of 27

    I have made no secret that I think that, "Back in Black" by AC/DC should be replaced as the anthem for the Oakland Raiders.  I don't think that the song does justice to the image and history of the Oakland Raiders.

    That is why I decided to create a list of 20 songs that I think would be a better fit.  I tried to avoid songs that seemed too obvious, such as, "Born to Be Wild," by Steppenwolf, or "Bad to the Bone," by George Thorogood & The Destroyers.

    Make sure to view each slide, because I mixed in some curveballs; either meant to be humorous or to make you think.

    I figured I'd end this list as melodramatically as possible.

    I stumbled across this video a week or so ago.

    It seems like the theme of every Springsteen song ever written.

    In the Disney film, a Gypsy named Clopin tells a story in which Judge Frollo projects his half-formed soul onto Quasimodo, when Frollo decides on the name Quasimodo, which means, "half-formed."  Clopin question who is the monster and who is the man, even though it will be learned that Clopin is as monstrous as Frollo.  Frollo raises Quasimodo in the bell tower of Notre Dame, in which Quasimodo, in effect, projects himself onto Paris when he rings the bells.

    The question is, who is listening? 

    I couldn't help but think of Roger Goodell as Judge Frollo. 

    But okay, I'm projecting.  How ironic.
