Wont back down is lamer.

It just doesnt fit the situation of a hype song to play during a football game.

Calling baton rouge should only be played pregame for night games when the sun's setting

But even if u concede that both songs suck, at least callin baton rouge makes some kinda sense to play in baton rouge.

I agree. Curious what everyone else thinks. Personally I think CBR is pretty cool and the people that hate it with a passion are weird.

We don't have Garth Brooks Day and act like we've done it since Brooks was born.

Callin Baton Rouge is 1000x better as a gameday song

People who genuinely hate on CBR are looking for things to be miserable about.

People that say both are awful are the same mindset that told me it's not cool to listen to John Denver or Karen Carpenter in the 70s.

I'd take either of those over a dumb STTDB chant that has forever ruined Neck.

Calling Baton Rouge is about a bootie call. It’s terrible and I’m fine with that. We play it 1-2 times a game, but don’t necessarily have it scheduled as some big part of the in game entertainment script.

CBR is fine as a 1 of 10 pregame / timeout songs.

It should never be used as a fight song or be given more weight than it deserves. The second that happens (and frankly I think we’ve moved a little too much in that direction) it becomes embarrassing.

The Perty song is a humorously try hard attempt at a tradition in a place that is devoid of tradition.

Well technically the shacking up already occurred and now he's simply calling because he misses her and to tell her he'll be home soon.

They are equally bad. This is a great comparison.

Neither should be an every week home game tradition. Once in a while would be ok.

Downvote if you want, but they’re both great songs and a hell of a lot of fun to belt out as part of a huge crowd.
