This is usually a blog sort of about sports, rather than sort of about pep bands. But when I posted George Mason’s pep band doing a Rage Against the Machine medley a few years back, the video wound up with nearly 2 million views. Needless to say, my sort-of sports updates don’t get 2 million readers.
So George Mason’s pep band is forever grandfathered into the sports category for our purposes. And any time Doc Nix and the Green Machine start doing Skrillex covers and breaking out a new Rage medley, I will find a place for those videos.
Newcomers to Mason were also evidently taken by the tunes over the weekend.
Can’t believe the band at mason played Skrillex ft the doors lolol
