Diehard Detroit Lions fans know the tune played after every Detroit Lions score—the Gridiron Fight song. One of the most beloved fight songs in the NFL, but if you’ve never been to a game at Ford Field, you might not even know it.
Traditionally sung after touchdowns, the song, “Gridiron Heroes” has stood the test of time for the team. It’s survived decades and remains one of the proud traditions of the game. The song dates back to the 1930’s The credit for the fight song goes to Wayne State University band director, Graham T. Overgard. Graham penned the oldest NFL fight song to date.
How The Music Makeover Came To Be
Got a text from Jim O’Brien from Big Jim’s House mornings with local celebrity Ryan Logan. Jim was asking if maybe my friend Motorcity Josh a local musician and the owner of The Sound Shop recording studio would do a makeover of the Detroit Lions Gridiron song. Recently Big Jim’s house has used Josh Ford’s band, “Motorcity Josh & the Big 3’s song, I Got That Friday Feelin’ song on the morning show. Jim’Obrien asked if Motor City Josh would take on the challenge of a Lions song makeover. Josh agreed and got the help of another Detroit rock and roll icon Dave Edwards from the band, The Look, and the backbone of the project on the drums Todd Glass whose credits include drumming on lots of local bands’ albums and being part of Motorcity Josh & The Big 3. Enjoy The New 2023 Detroit Lions Fight song.
