* In the last few years at [[{{Cricket}} Test matches]] involving England, "Jerusalem" has been played at the start of the day's play. And then there's all the [[CrowdSong compositions produced by the Barmy Army]]...

* Every AustralianRulesFootball team has a theme song. In the AFL, it's played when the teams enter, and the winning team's song is played at the end of the game. At every level from the AFL down to grass-roots football, the winning team sings it in the rooms after the game.

*** The Hartford Whalers had the Brass Bonanza. It was such a serious EarWorm that, since it's introduction, it has spread a lot. Comes in both [[http://www.brassbonanza.com/Sound/goalstereo.mp3 short]](i.e. played after a goal) and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJtiepwpKFw long]] versions. About the only NHL team you ''won't'' hear play it is the CarolinaHurricanes, because they used to be the Whalers (something they are lukewarm at best about acknowledging.

* International games also have the tradition of playing the national anthem of the winning team. The Summer and Winter [[OlympicGames Olympics]] both do it, as do the [[UsefulNotes/TheCommonwealthOfNations Commonwealth]] Games. The Commonwealth Games is particular fun as the UK enters as its constituent parts. Since these parts haven't been independent for centuries the National Anthem is often whatever the competitor say it is. The England 2010 team, for example, had a vote to decide what the English National Anthem would be for the games ("Jerusalem" won).

*** Gary Glitter's "Rock and Roll (Part 2)" (a.k.a. "[[FanNickname the hey song]]") is ''definitive'' sports music to many. Especially in New Jersey, where chanting "HEYYYYYYYY, you suck!" to it at Devils games became a tradition. But then to [[ExecutiveMeddling quell the tradition]], the team randomly switched it out for Music/BonJovi's self-described 'sports anthem' "This Is Our House" at the start of the 2013-14 season (a.k.a. the 2011 National Rugby League theme song for Australians), and people were heard ''[[http://stay-strong-2012.tumblr.com/post/63125771827/i-dont-know-if-you-can-hear-it-over-the-cheering booing]]'' it. Even more ironic is that New Jersey fans were ''booing a native of their own state.'' They ultimately replaced it with the aforementioned "Seven Nation Army".

* ''MajorLeague'': Rick "Wild Thing" Vaughn, former starting pitcher relegated to relief, comes to the mound [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sa0v08XY2G8 with "Wild Thing" playing on the PA,]] which becomes a CrowdSong. [[LifeImitatesArt This inspired MLB to do it]] (per Arvine's RealLife example).

** {{UsefulNotes/Boston}} has a few songs associated with its sports teams, mostly the Red Sox. "Tessie" (revived when the Music/DropkickMurphys covered it) "Sweet Caroline" traditionally sung in the eighth inning and performed by Music/NeilDiamond himself at the first game after the Boston Marathon Bombings, and "Shippin' Up To Boston" also by the Dropkick Murphys, which serves the same purpose as a FootballFightSong at Bruins' games.
