Classic Wasps tunes?

Just wondering what the classic tunes for Wasps are? If there are any.

Obviously AC/DC back in black is a common one, but are there any other great tunes that folks associated with Wasps?

Chelsea Dagger (The Fratellis) is always welcome! Cannot remember the name of the usual half time entrance song, which is probably sacrilege to some. Then of course there is the Wasp Wiggle!

The two that used to get played at Adams Park a fair bit were Black and Gold by Sam Sparro and then also Hysteria by Muse as they ran out.

I'm not sure that either of them are Classic Wasps though, mind

I've very fond memories of watching Rob Henderson dancing to Park Life on the pitch at Loftus Road after a win. (Great memories of Hendo actually, - was it 3 tries against Glaws on debut as an emergency fly half during one of our all too frequent injury crises?)

Song 2 used to be played at Loftus Road after we scored a try.

Not so favourite memory - that awful DJ Otzi thing (?), "Hey Baby" every time Kinga knocked over a penalty or conversion. Didn't hear it so much for Kenny Logan smiling smiley

From High Wycombe 'Build me up buttercup' brings back happy memories.

Now is should/could be 'The Specials' and Two Tone' stuff.

Park life and song 2 for sure. They'll always make me think 'wasps' when I hear them.

Slightly odder one - and a terrible song - touch and go 'would you go I bed with me'. It has a big trumpet solo halfway through and there used to be 3 wasps fans at loftus road who brought their brass instruments and belted out tunes (the 3 amigos). That solo was one I remember being played a lot!

Choose Life (I think)

Theme from Bod.

Always remember Sale running out to the suicidal dirge that is the theme to Coronation Street.

For a time the build up music leading up to the run out was from the film 300, which was excellent.

Then they discovered the sound of a swarm of bees, which always sounded terrible in the stands at Adams Park!

That's 'Escape' by Craig Armstrong...

Just remembered the name of the current half time entrance song, Kashmir, by Led Zeppelin. At least I think it is, now wondering if they play it before the game.

In the build up, always used to play Ready to go by Republica, and Robbie's Let Me Entertain You.

Can't use that, Tiggers always run out to it.

More interested in classic Wasps tunes, rather than what we think could be good (if you get what I mean).

Listened to a few of those suggested, some nice ones smiling smiley, any others that people can think of? Or in agreement about certain songs already mentioned make you think about wasps.

The club used "Black and Yellow" by Whizz Khalifa for a while on its promo vids and in the stands.

Like the black and yellow, especially the instrumental version.

Reason I'm asking is that I'm planning on doing a highlights reel for Cips after his first season back. Like the Robson one I want some of the more basic skills in there as well, but seeing as Cips is a walking highlights reel it's looking likely to be a long one, so I need plenty of music. Planning on opening with the obvious Back in Black.

Also I liked the Rolling In The Black mix (Rolling in the deep mixed with Back in Black) that the club used on the Wasps score 90 against Viadana video they produced a few years ago.
