Fargo, ND – Ever since the third verse of the NDSU Bison school song was found to have some “troubling” lyrics, the search has been on to pick a replacment song for “The Yellow and the Green” which was written by Archibald Minard and Clarence Putnam back around 1908.
NDSU is now extremely proud to announce that its new official school song is: We Are The Champions!
This ever-popular song was written by the late, great Freddie Mercury and introduced to the world by the band Queen in 1977.
After five straight national championships by the NDSU football team, We Are The Champions seems to be the perfect new school song for The Bison. In fact, Freddie Mercury said that he was actually thinking about football when he wrote the song.
With their new school song behind them, the NDSU Bison will now seek to extend their championship run to six straight winning trips to Frisco, Texas.
For this quest, the NDSU Bison football team is also announcing their new official slogan for this next year: The Joy Of Six!
