The best rally chants in sports are meant to pump up the crowd.
Whether it's an anthem that's packed with lyrics or a simple letter-by-letter chant, anything goes as long as it gets the fans to stand behind their club.
There are some awfully creative musical renditions on this list, and fans can know how it feels to experience the action first hand by watching these inspiring clips.
I'm pretty sure Seth knows who his daddy is considering that he was in the crowd.
But really, you couldn't be more creative?
Well, that's one way to stand behind your team.
And that's the way their fans get down.
They seem enthusiastic, to say the least.
That's one passionate fanbase.
They're going berserk at the ripe young hour of 12:00 a.m.
That's serious school spirit.
It's not exactly the most original, but it's pretty cool nonetheless.
And with Joe Pa on the sidelines...how could anyone not attend these games?
The Atlanta Braves tomahawk chop is classic, but only to their team.
That's why it ranks so low on this list.
But anytime that song plays, every MLB fan immediately thinks of the Braves.
This one isn't Boston specific, but it certainly is prevalent.
This one gets major points as one of the more creative interpretations I've seen of the oft-used chant.
Who dat? Hear dat?
The fans of the New Orleans Saints have really found a cathartic release by living vicariously through the professional football team.
Another one that isn't sport specific, but it's too good to be left off of the list.
Especially when it's pertaining to Chris Bosh in his first season as a "megastar" with the Miami Heat.
Last time I checked, "superstar" was a term reserved for the elite players.
I'm not sure what Husker power is exactly, but at least Nebraska has found a way to get both sides of the stands involved.
If this were a video game, I'd imagine something like a Super Mario-looking figure shooting husks of corn out of some special type of machinery.
Although it's not very original, at least LSU has changed up the spelling.
The Tigers have done something rather creative by incorporating their French history into the school's culture.
You can't expect to make it through this list without seeing Ed the Fireman.
He is revered by some, loathed by most but there is truly nobody else like him at the Jets game.
Manchester United has one of the largest and most loyal fanbases in all of soccer.
In fact, they treat their team like royalty.
For almost any opponent it's tough to go up against the Duke basketball team.
But when you've got to go up against their passionate fans, too?
That's almost insurmountable.
There's not a lot of differentiation between this one and the Atlanta Braves' version, but it seems to pump up the crowd just as much.
It's an intimidating sight to look up into the crowd and see everyone doing the same thing in unison.
This one is just classic.
Any Michigan fan that doesn't get pumped up after hearing this should consider rooting for another club.
It's not about the Mets or the Phillies in this one.
This is for all of the great moments of competition that have resulted in the crowd singing "U-S-A" to represent their patriotism.
The Ohio University basketball team might not be that good, but its fans are among the best.
Look at the enthusiasm coming from these guys as they cheer on their team.
The OSU chant sends chills down the spines of any opposition that comes into the building.
Especially in front of more than 100,000 people.
If you ain't a Gator...
...You must be Gator bait!
Chomp on 'em!
It's fun to side with the underdog.
And it's even more fun when they're playing Duke.
Any rally chant that involves letting an eagle fly over the stadium is easily in the top 10 in my book.
Combine the iconic moment with the Auburn football team and you've got one motivating moment.
This is why you don't wear anything Yankees themed at Fenway.
Really, this is why you don't wear Yankees gear anywhere but to Yankee Stadium.
Another classic one, this time out of Kansas.
It's tough for anyone to contain their excitement at the conclusion of this excellent rally chant.
"Rammer Jammer" is the best name for a chant I've heard in a long time.
It didn't get the top spot on this list, but at least it didn't skimp on creativity.
Here are the lyrics to this excellent Ole Miss chant:
"Are you ready?
Hell yes! Damn Right!
Hotty Toddy, Gosh almighty
Who the hell are we, Hey!
Flim Flam, Bim Bam
OLE MISS BY DAMN!"
Can you dig it?
This is a chant that was based in historical context, but it hasn't lost any of its excellence over time.
I'd chant "Woooooooooo Pig! Sooie!" even if I wasn't at the football game.
That sounds like a chant that would let the good times roll.
Take a fish out of water, he'll flop around uncontrollably.
Apparently, the same thing happens when an athlete signs with the Canucks.
Ah, yes. The origin of the now-famous chant.
How many Yankees fans have this one as their ringtone?
This makes no sense to me.
Are they calling him a fleabag?
Or are they saying...
But what if Paulus prefers coffee over tea?
There aren't many atmospheres like this one in professional sports. Here's a stateside version.
This is just fun to watch, and was probably even more fun to be a part of when it went down.
Hit me in the comments with any great chants I might have missed.
