Alabama Crimson Tide in Popular Culture

With Alabama's re-emergence as a national power, the number of references in pop culture to our favorite team will almost certainly go up. While I enjoy listening to my gameday playlist/CD with predominantly stadium music and marching band cheers when I get fired up about the approaching football season, I would like to create a music playlist with songs with slightly more subtle Alabama references. I thought I'd also bring movies into the discussion as well so we can have more to talk about.


Movies: Crimson Tide (I really dug up an obscure reference there) has that awesome scene they used to show on the jumbotron with "GO BAMA! ROLL TIDE!", but can you think of any other references to 'Bama in the movies? i also enjoyed Sandra Bullock talking about how handsome she found Saban in "Blind Side."

Music: I think of Steely Dan's "Deacon Blues" and that newish Tim McGraw song "Southern Voice" where he mentions Bear Bryant winning and mentions wearing an Alabama shirt. What other songs mention 'Bama? "Bama Anthem" by 63 Boyz and "Sweet Home Alabama" by B.A.M.A. don't count.

FanPosts are just that; posts created by the fans. They are in no way indicative of the opinions of SBN and the authors of Roll Bama Roll.
