Tennessee famously (or possibly infamously) had “Third Down For What” as their third down song in Neyland Stadium for the start of the Butch Jones era. But Tennessee did away with it after the 2015 season, and last year Neyland Stadium played generic hype music to get the crowd ready for defensive third downs.
Now Tennessee has a new third down song. And Vol fans on social media do not like it.
The Vols’ official football Twitter account tweeted out the new third down song on Friday afternoon. Here’s what it sounds like:

And it’s safe to say from the reaction of Vol fans on Twitter that the song hasn’t gone over well initially.
Here’s just some of the reaction that Tennessee fans on Twitter had to the new third down song:
