Who Dat?™ Geaux Saints!

Oh yeah … all those years when nobody else cared about the Saints, it was “Who Dat? Nation” and “Who Dat?” dis and “Who Dat?” dat.  Now the NFL is claiming “Who Dat” is copyrighted, or it’s a trademark, or something.  Now that the New Orleans Saints are in the Super Bowl, the NFL is seizing”Who Dat?” – oh wait … “Who Dat?™” – in hopes of feeding its already bloated billion-dollar enterprise.

Who Dat?™ who’s greedy?  The NFL, dat’s Who Dat?™!

In other news, our great friend and awesome photographer Art Meripol sent an e-mail yesterday: he’s on assignment in New Orleans shooting jazz clubs from about now until the middle of next week.  The Super Bowl’s on Sunday, Mardi Gras hits its fever pitch next week (or Sunday if the Saints win), and our buddy’s in the middle of it all.  Nice work if you can get it.

Anyway, the covergence of these great events is convenient … so in the interest of public service, here’s a handful of New Orleans and Louisiana swamp rock songs for your Super Bowl/Mardi Gras party.  You can find many more by going to our “Walkin’ To New Orleans” series, plus we have a handful of Saints fight songs.  Of course, there are beaucoups more Saints fight songs at the New Orleans Times-Picayune.  The Saints, the Colts and the Who are gonna tear it up this weekend … be there, square hair!  Geaux Saints!

  1. I have been waiting for this day since 1972. Up till now the NFL could care less for the Saints, now they see money and want to take away what the Who Dat Nation has had since the early 80s. Who Dat Say They Going To Beat Them Saints! Who Dat

  2. I have been waiting for this day since 1967. My brothers and I had season tickets — back when they had “children’s seats” in the upper deck of Tulane Stadium for $1.50. We saw the Saints go 20 years without a winning season, finally make the playoffs then lose, and break our hearts over and over, yet still we believed. The feeling around this town right now is that every day is like Christmas Eve and Mardi Gras rolled into one.

    Your choice of songs for this moment is fantastic!

    Thanks, Cove! We think the Saints are a team of Destiny. That, and a strong pass rush, will help them win their first Super Bowl on Sunday.
