    i was thinking what's a song from a Boston band that could be Pats theme for the year. "Boston" is too light, Aerosmith is too corporate. Then I hit on the group Godsmack. They're a balls-out heavy metal band that's perfect for our "Evil Empire" image. In particular, I think their song "Awake" is perfect.

    Here's the lyrics w/ my comments in parenthesis:
    ----------

    Yeah

    Wait another minute
    Can't you see what this pain
    (Spygate allegations)
    Has f#@*ing done to me

    I'm alive and still kicking
    What you see I can't see
    And maybe
    You'll think before you speak
    (trash talkers from other teams like Pittsburgh)

    I'm alive for you
    (you = all the haters)
    I'm awake because of you
    I'm alive I told you
    I'm awake swallowing you
    (Every team in the league we face)

    Take another second
    Turn your back on me
    And make believe
    That you're always happy

    It's safe to say, you're never alive
    A big part of you has died
    (Every team we've embarressed)
    And by the way
    I hope you're satisfied

    I'm alive for you
    I'm awake because of you
    I'm alive I told you
    I'm awake swallowing you

    I'm alive for you
    I'm awake because of you
    I'm alive I told you
    I'm awake

    Turn your back, unveiling me
    I'm taking a step back so I can breathe
    Hear the silence about to break
    (kick off)
    Fear resistance when I'm awake

    Turn your back, unveiling me
    I'm taking a step back so I can breathe
    Hear the silence about to break
    Fear resistance when I'm awake

    I'm alive for you
    I'm awake because of you
    I'm alive I told you
    I'm awake swallowing you

    I'm alive for you
    I'm awake because of you
    I'm alive I told you
    I'm awake swallowing you

    Here's the video:

    Godsmack about 8 months ago started working on a new entrance song just for the patriots.

    I dont think ive ever heard anything about it ever again.

    I think JayZ's "Say Hello" off American Gangster fits. "Say Hello to the bad guy". That fits for the 07 team.

    Plus, Akrobatik did a Patriots rap song, it was pretty solid actually.

    I've been listening to that album a lot lately. Good call.

    Also worthy of mention: Papoose- Born To Win, Hatebreed- Destroy Everything, for this weekend's game: Lamb of God- Now You've Got Something to Die for. But I think the best fit of all would be Disturbed's "Hell".

    I think I Don't Wanna Stop by Ozzy is a pretty good theme song for the Pats aswell.

    Here it is for those that haven't heard it:

    Also I would absolutely love hearing Hit Me With Your Best Shot by Pat Benatar......lol....

    Another one I was thinking about was No More Mr. Nice Guy by Alice Cooper. Here is the youtube:

    What do you guys think?

    cool, lets just go with "Awake" then. guess they have to "bleep" out the f-bomb if played at stadium. otherwise i think it's good to go! anyone know how we get the team/stadium/band to endorse it?

    Well, Bon Jovi's "Belichick Song", Bounce, is more fitting than ever; that's my Patriots theme song.

    And my other favorite is Adagio's Dominate :

    "I see right through you
    But my will is to dominate"

    Newton- Agreed on the Awake song by Godsmack..

    Great song to pump up the crowd and it is fitting for the way the season has gone.

    I think I will listen to it on my IPOD right now! :)

    Artist/Title: Motorhead - The Game

    It's time to play the game, Time to play the game! Hahahahaha Hahaha
    It's all about the game, and how you play it
    All about control, and if you can take it
    All about your debt, and if you can pay it
    It's all about pain, and who's gonna make it...
    I am the game, you don't wanna play me
    I am control, no way you can change me

    I am have heavy debts, no way you can pay me
    I am the pain, and I know you can't take me
    Look over your shoulder, ready to run
    Like a good little *****, from a smoking gun
    I am the game, and I make the rules
    So move on out, or you can die like a fool

    Try and figure out what the news is gonna be
    Come on over sucker, why don't you ask me?
    Don't you forget there's a place you can pay
    'Cuz I am the game and I want to play

    It's time to play the game... Hahahaha,

    It's all about the game, and how you play it
    It's all about control, and if you can take it

    It's all about your debt, and if you can pay it
    It's all about the pain, and who's gonna make it...
    I am the game, you don't wanna play me
    I am control, there's no way you can change me
    I am your debts, and no you can't pay me
    I am your pain, and I know you can't take me

    Play the game, you ain't gonna be the same You're gonna change your name, you're goin' down in flames
    Hahahahaha... Its time to play the game!

    How about "Down with the Sickness" by disturbed. I don't know if it fits with the being from Boston angle but its a damn good song.

    (Can you feel that?)
    (Oh ****)
    Ooh ah ah ah ah!
    Ooh ah ah ah ah!
    Drowning deep in my sea of loathing
    Broken your servant I kneel
    (Will you give in to me?)
    It seems what's left of my human side
    Is slowly changing ... in me
    (Will you give in to me?)

    Looking at my own reflection
    When suddenly it changes
    Violently it changes
    Oh no, There is no turning back now
    You've woken up the demon ... in me

    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    Open up your hate, and let it flow into me
    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    You mother get up
    Come on get down with the sickness
    You ****er get up
    Come on get down with the sickness
    Madness is the gift, that has been given to me

    I can see inside you, the sickness is rising
    Don't try to deny what you feel
    (Will you give in to me?)
    It seems that all that was good has died
    And is decaying in me
    (Will you give in to me?)

    It seems you're having some trouble
    In dealing with these changes
    Living with these changes
    Oh no, the world is a scary place
    Now that you've woken up the demon ... in me

    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    Open up your hate, and let it flow into me
    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    You mother get up
    Come on get down with the sickness
    You ****er get up
    Come on get down with the sickness
    Madness is the gift, that has been given to me

    "Seek and destroy" by Metalica could also aply to this years theme.

    We are scanning the scene
    in the city tonight
    We are looking for you
    to start up a fight
    There is an evil feeling
    in our brains
    But it is nothing new
    you know it drives us insane

    Running,
    On our way
    Hiding,
    You will pay
    Dying,
    One thousand deaths
    Running,
    On our way
    Hiding,
    You will pay
    Dying,
    One thousand deaths
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy

    There is no escape
    and that is for sure
    This is the end we won't take any more
    Say goodbye
    to the world you live in
    You have always been taking
    but now you're giving

    Running,
    On our way
    Hiding,
    You will pay
    Dying,
    One thousand deaths
    Running,
    On our way
    Hiding,
    You will pay
    Dying,
    One thousand deaths
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy

    Our brains are on fire
    with the feeling to kill
    And it will not go away
    until our dreams are fulfilled
    There is only one thing
    on our minds
    Don't try running away
    `cause you're the one we will find

    Running,
    On our way
    Hiding,
    You will pay
    Dying,
    One thousand deaths
    Running,
    On our way
    Hiding,
    You will pay
    Dying,
    One thousand deaths
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy
    Searching,
    Seek and Destroy

    Nine Inch Nails - Closer.

    First verse only of course, those who know the song know the chorus could not be played, but the first verse perfectly describes opponents defenses every time the Pats offense takes the field.

    "You let me violate you
    you let me desecrate you
    you let me penetrate you
    you let me complicate you
    help me..."

    Master of Puppets- Metalica

    End of passion play, crumbling away
    Im your source of self-destruction
    Veins that pump with fear, sucking darkest clear
    Leading on your deaths construction

    [chorus:]
    Taste me you will see
    More is all you need
    Youre dedicated to
    How Im killing you

    Come crawling faster
    Obey your master
    Your life burns faster
    Obey your master
    Master

    Master of puppets Im pulling your strings
    Twisting your mind and smashing your dreams
    Blinded by me, you cant see a thing
    Just call my name, `cause Ill hear you scream
    Master
    Master
    Just call my name, `cause Ill hear you scream
    Master
    Master
    [end chorus]

    Needlework the way, never you betray
    Life of death becoming clearer
    Pain monopoly, ritual misery
    Chop your breakfast on a mirror

    [chorus]

    Master, master, wheres the dreams that Ive been after?
    Master, master, you promised only lies
    Laughter, laughter, all I hear and see is laughter
    Laughter, laughter, laughing at my cries

    Hell is worth all that, natural habitat
    Just a rhyme without a reason
    Neverending maze, drift on numbered days
    Now your life is out of season
