Default Rendition of "Dune" song played while we march down the field.

Ok so I posted a thread on here several weeks back with respect to this. Can anyone explain why our band plays this rhythm when good things happen for our team? Or even when this tradition began? Skip to 1:50 on the below youtube video.



No one I have spoken to about this has any idea why or where it came from.

Back in the 80's the band played alot of songs from the Sci-Fi movies that were popular at the time. I think it was all tied into 2001. Some of them stuck around (like this one), some of them didn't (like Krypton).

I know we used to use the Imperial March, and did so for years. Have they changed?

Sorry it sounds like the Dune song to me not Star Wars. I have a good ear for music

You're right. It's from Dune and has always been from Dune. This is the tune. It's in no way shape or from the Star Wars imperial march....

We used to ALSO play the imperial march and that's where some people are getting confused.

As a musician, I constantly have to remind myself not everyone can hear what seems obvious to me, like the fact the "2nd down defense" tune isn't even close to sounding like the Imperial March music, except the fact they're both in minor keys.

Anyway, I have always loved the Krypton music, and I wish we had kept it.

I agree 100%. One of the most bad@$$ parts of the game for me as a kid was when the band played this to close out the game in the 4th (or even when game was over and the stadium was "empty"). Open with 2001, close with Krypton. Bookends.

Edit: Upon further review, it appears that UGA plays this to start the 4th quarter. I'm 100% sure this is why WE don't do this any longer.

Speaking of which, my girlfriend, who is a music major, came to her first actual game(came to the spring game) this past weekend and every time she heard the tune she tried to figure out the key/notes/etc.



I personally enjoy the tune and it's probably my favorite and has been since hearing it the first time. I do wish that we would bring back the Imperial March, though.

We don't play Krypton anymore because it's a UGA tradition/song.

I love what the new director has done with the band but it still pisses me off to no end that she got rid of Krypton Fanfare.
