Sport and music are synonymous.
From blasting the stadium speakers to your tailgate, you can’t go through a day of college football without hearing music. LSU, in particular, has quite a few tracks that are the epitome of a good night in Death Valley.

We’re now less than 10 days away from kick-off, so I thought it was time for a little refresher. Whether you’ve heard these songs 100 times or never even heard of them, these are the ones you should hear on the sound system on September 4th.
From Garth Brooks to Boosie, let’s take a look.
Callin’ Baton Rouge
I’ll never forget the first time I was at Tiger Stadium and Callin’ Baton Rouge started playing. I was young and had never heard it before, but when the whole stadium shouted “Louisiana” I got goosebumps. It’s the moment before every game that reminds LSU fans they’re here with 100,000 best friends.
Louisiana Saturday night
The title speaks for itself here. Mel McDaniel’s Louisiana Saturday Night is the perfect song to have on the tailgate as kickoff approaches. It might not get the blood pumping, but it tells the perfect story.
Boosie, a Baton Rouge native, might be a better fit for younger audiences, but Wipe Me Down has become a staple of LSU Saturdays. The heritage of southern hip-hop is now as strong as country. Wipe Me Down is the perfect track to get you dancing and dancing.
Born on the bayou
Again, the title speaks for itself. One of the reasons LSU is such a special place for many is how unique Louisiana is. CCR’s song captures this perfectly. Much like Callin Baton Rouge, this song creates a sense of community inside the stadium.
We’re definitely getting back to hip-hop here. This song may be more synonymous with the Saints, but now that LSU has established a good relationship with its NFL counterpart, why not throw it here?
