Answer: no. It gets the crowd into the game like no other song, giving our boys extra decibels of ear-pummeling goodness. Plus we got it from an Atlanta band, making the song even better as it comes garnished with the Tears of falcon fans that get to witness the soul crushing defeat of their team year after year.
Just save it for times when we need it most. It creates that emotional spark, but the more you use it the effect is less. Save it for say a 4th quarter of a Monday night football game when the game is close, scoring to spark a comeback, or a tight one in the playoffs.
It's played out. Jumped the shark. Made itself stale. Old news. Lost its shine. Etc.
It's like a TV show that used to be awesome but lost all of its good writers years ago. The main actors are still there, but they are just going through the motions without heart for a paycheck. The characters are charicatures of themselves with no depth.
It's over. Crunk is over. It had a great run. We need to stop beating a dead horse. But we won't, and it will suck.
Yeah it may still fire some people up. But some people still wear acid wash jeans. Some still wear jorts (antipop). We kept the cha ching thing around too long as well, and who let the dogs out. We're one of the only stadiums who still does the wave, for chrissake. No doubt, we can collectively be quite lame.
It's time to create a new identity. It might or might not be better than crunk in 2009 was. But we can't stay here. Time progresses, and we have to evolve or else things will just stagnate.
Strangely, i think none of the above logic applies to the pregame chant by the players. That's the thing that should have stayed the same, not crunk. Yet they switched it to the pitiful three claps thing. Weird. Let's turn in crunk and resurrect the old team chant.
Some things are epic enough to be around forever, I guess. The WhoDat thing Drew started this year, the players' pregame chant from 2009, the whole whodat thing itself. Crunk ain't one of them. Let's let it go.
