Sweet and lowdown: When it comes to music, Saints are already champs

Jan 26, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

Just about every Super Bowl-bound team has inspired its fans to produce tribute songs. Some are awful, while others, like those belted out by young Pittsburgh Steelers devotees The Pop Rocks last year, are pretty impressive. The Indianapolis Colts, no doubt, will be powered by two or three fan-produced anthems next week when they head to Miami. Remember Lil’ Ronnie? He channeled prepubescent angst for his Colts into a couple of local rap hits in 2006 and ’07, famously warning the Chicago Bears to “Step off, punks.” And if you want to overdose on cute, the even younger Faber Boys sing their 2010 version of “We are the Colts” right here.
But in New Orleans, music isn’t kid stuff; especially when it comes to the Saints. The city that practically invented music has been singing the blues over their football team for more than 30 years, but now that they’re finally winning, it’s a gigantic, year-long party on Bourbon Street, and the Saints are the musical guests of honor. Blues, jazz, hip-hop, rock … it’s all represented. Following the jump, a short list of some of my favorite Saints anthems.


A good place to start is NOLA.com, which lists more than 50 Saints-related songs on its site today. My top 5, in no particular order:

Wit da Saints — Village Block Party

Glory Bound — Aaron Neville, others

Who Dat — Dat Boi Pantha

Superdome — Delicious Blues Stew

Watching New Orleans Play — Johnny Chauvin

Sweet Danny Abramowicz, that’s good.
A couple more:

Sports Videos, News, Blogs

OK, fair is fair: some Colts songs.

Let’s Get It — Chief Stockton

Colts Stomp, Let’s Stomp — Jman

This is the Colts — June Rochelle

Go Blue, Remix — Mudkids

    The Aint’s didn’t win that game, it was given to them by the officials.

    Hey Wraith, get over it! Your song by Prince was horrible. We won.

    the refs caused 5 turnovers AMAZING!!!!!

    Yeah, a big right wing conspiracy. I saw one of the refs mouth “who dat” after every call.

  5. AR - Jan 27, 2010 at 6:06 AM

    Ha funny after 5 turnovers the game was still tied.
    Tied until the refs called PI on a guy who NEVER touched the WR, not to mention the ball was nowhere near catchable. Not even close.
    And then that final booth review, a reception? The official who upheld that call was either blind or retarded, because that was no reception. The officials gift wrapped the game for the Saints in OT, “Hey, sorry about Katrina… here you go, you guys deserve it”

    Geez if that’s true AR, you better get to Vegas and put your money on the Saints. And let’s launch an investigation and send the refs to jail like the basketball ref. You’re an idiot. Not to mention rude.

  7. SW - Jan 27, 2010 at 9:27 AM

    I agree with you BD. Obviously AR is not only rude but BLIND!! (or retarded)

    Yeah, the refs handed the Saints the game. The refs were throwing personal foul flags just because defenders were looking menacingly in Favre’s direction that bailed them out on a bunch of third downs. The one time they hit Favre and the refs don’t call anything Joe Buck was crying for a flag in the booth.
    There was a personal foul called because somebody hit Percy Harvin after he fumbled a punt. Bad officiating is bad officiating you twit, the bad calls went both ways. The Vikes were on the good end of more bad calls, but the Saints got them at the right time.

    Yep, the refs who flagged the Saints 9 times for 98 yards gave them the game. Never mind that the Vikings put the ball on the turf 6 times, turing it over 3. Never mind that the Vikings, who at the edge of FG range with 19 seconds to play call a timeout so they can run the famous “maybe they won’t notice there’s 12 of us” play. Never mind that all it took was a simple running play to pick up a couple more yards, time out, line up kick the FG for an opportunity to win and instead the Vikings throw the ball late, across the body into coverage for the 2nd pick of the day. Yeah…that was all the refs. The only folks more sore than Favre as some of these sore loser Vikings fans blaming the refs.
