Lil Jon-Turn Down for What

The Tennessee Volunteers have always had a history of sticking to their southern roots but moving with the times to a certain degree football wise.

They remained physical in the 1990s but focused more on a pro-style offense with great quarterback play, more NFL-like than the other three yards and a cloud of dust SEC teams.

And right now, under Butch Jones, they are sticking to their physical football roots but incorporating elements of the fashionable spread offense that is so big in college football.

So do the same with music. Lil Jon is a southern legend for popularizing the crunk sound that had been a part of the South for years. He has also managed to keep his relevance by merging that sound with the new EDM sound that’s out, and “Turn Down for What” is the perfect combination for it.

Not convinced? Well here is the kill.

Lil Jon was at the Tennessee-Florida game last year in Vols gear, spoke to the team, and also tweeted at Tennessee after the Vols gained popularity for playing this song and then every fan shouting “Third Down for What” on third down. That has become a major tradition with the team.

So go all out, and play the percussive fight song that any marching band could have down pat very quickly.
