Well, tonight (9pm) the defending national champion, #21 ranked, North Carolina Tarheels are going to Raleigh to play #15 NC State. There is a lot riding on this game, not the least of which is the Wolfpack seeking revenge for the loss earlier this year in Chapel Hill.
Isn't this a MUSIC blog??
Yes, we'll get to that. But see, I went to NC State and the games each year against UNC mean a lot to me and the rest of Wolfpack nation. See, for those of you with no sense of history (speaking mostly to Carolina fans here) there IS in fact a long standing rivalry between NCSU and UNC. The fact that NC State was awful for the entirety of the 90's caused the rivalry to fade in the minds of UNC fans as the whole nation started watching Duke vs. UNC. A ton of money has been made off of building that rivalry up, and I understand that current students of UNC see Duke as their rival but I'll tell you what; when I moved to North Carolina in 1987, on the very first day of school, I was asked "State or Carolina?"... I've never looked back since answering that day. Thank god I picked the good guys to root for.
Below you'll find MP3's of some NC State songs. Download them and play them all day as you get PUMPED UP for the game tonight.
