* American sports feature several examples of this trope...
** "Stand Up and Cheer", originally written for the University of Kansas in 1909 and now the school's secondary fight song, is now the primary fight song for 10 other colleges, five of them in NCAA Division I, and a secondary fight song for a second D-I school. And that's not getting into the ''hundreds'' of high schools that use the song.
** The "Washington and Lee Swing", written for and still in use by the small Virginia university of that name, is also used by hundreds of high schools.
** One of LSU's secondary fight songs, "Hey, Fightin' Tigers", is the Broadway tune "Hey, Look Me Over"[[note]]from the musical ''Wildcat''[[/note]] with new lyrics.
** Another Broadway tune, "Step to the Rear",[[note]]from ''How Now, Dow Jones''[[/note]] became South Carolina's current fight song, "The Fighting Gamecocks Lead the Way".
