Reporting Jessica Kartalija
BALTIMORE (WJZ)—The popular song “Seven Nation Army” has quickly become a hit at M&T Bank Stadium.
Jessica Kartalija reports some Charm City locals have created a look to go with the catchy chant.
Fans love the song, so do the players and so does Ravens head Coach John Harbaugh. Now it’s getting even bigger.
It’s an Internet sensation. YouTube video captures the latest–and greatest–addition to M&T Bank Stadium.
Now, at Cross Street Tobacco, Ravens fan Bill Kistner is selling the shirt to go with the song.
“The Ravens played this song on opening weekend against the Steelers,” Kistner said. “It’s got a very infectious base beat beginning which leads to the fans singing.”
It quickly caught on. And soon, 70,000 fans joined in. And now the song is being played over and over during the game.
“Oh. Oh oh oooooh. …then the base comes in, and it’s like bump, bump. It’s a great song,” said a fan.
“Flacco could throw a pass, and then the crowd already gets riled up and then you hear the song come through the background and it’s just like yeah, total intensity,” another fan said.
The song is by The White Stripes.
“The whole idea behind the song for those who don’t know is it would take a Seven Nation Army to defeat us,” Kistner said.
