Is your school's fight song original or based upon some college's fight song? 

BD's Fight Song, for example, takes its tune from the Maine Stein Song.

In the SIAC, 6 schools use Big10 school songs (but not IU or PU).  Memorial uses Notre Dame.  Castle has its own original.

My high school alma mater, Maconaquah, has a fight song sung to the tune of Hail Purdue!:

Hail, hail Maconaquah, all hail to the red and the blue.
Hail, hail to MHS to our Braves we will always be true.
Fight, fight for victory whether odds be great or small.
Honor, love, and praise we give to our Maconaquah.

 

 

Frankfort's fight song (tune may be original, at least I have never heard it elsewhere):

Oh, Hail to dear old Frankfort!

To the blue and the white that floats upon the breeze -

All hail to dear old Frankfort

And all her happy memories -

Three cheers to dear old Frankfort

And may her glory never, never die -

Long may we love her, our Alma Mater

Frankfort High!

Warren Central's fight song is based on the University of Cincinnati's fight song.

Rah, Rah for Warren, Warren will win.

Fight to the finish, never give in,

You do your best team, we'll do the rest,

So fight on victory! 

Rah, Rah for Warren, Warren will win.

Fight to the finish, never give in,

You do your best team, we'll do the rest, 

So fight on to victory!

Rah Rah 3x

Go Warriors Go!

Southport High School is an original song written by an alumnus.  

I should add that the Southport High School song is used in the movie “Hoosiers”.

Columbus East- USC fight song

Columbus North- Notre Dame fight song

Jennings County/Seymour/Greensburg- Wisconsin fight song

And if I recall correctly, Batesville uses IU's fight song.

 

My favorite thing about Jennings County is that they traditionally welcome the visiting team/fans to their field by playing their fight song for them. Then they turn to the home crowd and play the Jennings County fight song as the team runs onto the field. It always made things weird when they play Seymour or Greensburg and they play the exact same fight song twice. It's really silly that their rival, Seymour, shares the same fight song.

Franklin Community's school song  is based on Illinois Loyalty although the middle part is different. The original has an instrumental interlude while the FCHS version spells out F-F-F-R-A-N F-R-A-N-K-L-I-N (symbol crash) . 

Indian Creek's fight song is an original written in 1967 when the school first opened. I don't think the song has a specific name.

It's even sillier considering Seymour and JC share a border.

Based on what I'm seeing on here, seems like half the state uses Wisconsin's fight song as their own.

Did you know that the Maroons have - or, at least, had at one time - a marching kazoo band that played at their football games? Quite a sight.

I've always been told that South Bend Adams uses the tune of the fight song of the University of Illinois.

"All hail to the Scarlet and Blue/To you we are loyal and true"

 

South Bend Clay certainly uses the tune of the University of Notre Dame.

"Cheer Cheer for Clay Senior High."

Seymour's fight song is On Wisconsin. I used to know the words, I, along with all my fellow sophs had to stand on chairs in the locker room and sing it. But I've long since forgotten them.

I've always liked the fact that BD's is a copy - but not one that gets copied a lot.

Markleville High School Mustangs - hence the "Arabians" mascot. There may have been an Ingalls High School at one point too, not sure.
