The sh*t about winning isn’t everything in the new second verse is so disgusting
I didnt even know there WAS a second verse!

If thats true then whoever is behind the change should be fired.

Seriously, its like a Freo supported infiltrated the club and said "new song? Yeah I got one o' those for ya, boss! Real family friendly. Very on-brand".

If we want to market to the kids just use Eagle Rock ffs.

There's nothing about 'winning isn't everything'

It says 'it's more than winning', meaning being a great footy club is more than just winning games on the field.

Adelaide won plenty of games in 2017, did that make them a great club? Hell no, look at whats been unraveling behind the scenes there.

Hey hey hey, good old…

Will probably be more backlash after our first home win with a crowd, when no one can sing along coz it's sh*t.
Couldn't sing along to even the chorus after the derby. It's just too slow.

The boys manage to punch it out after a win, it sounds good but they go more up tempo and shout it out.

Bring back Allegiance to record it!

The new version has the worst of everything. High pitched vocals, cringey lyrics and a soft, laid back tune. Needs to be a chant over the top of an old tune like every other club. If a song sounds good when the players belt it out after a game you know you have the right one.

Birds of Tokyo are just a cringeworthy band. What could have been...

A bit of mayo for effect. Either way. Both new verses suck. The chant pre song sucks. Our song does suck. The chorus Dickson


Born is pride, from isolation

Lame.

Lame.
Agreed. Pride is a mostly useless emotion anyway, including when it stems from something positive like achievements or values. It doesn't bring anyone forwards by dwelling on it. And Perth being isolated is just a reality, not something inherently good or bad.

There's a Birds of Tokyo song being played on my workplace radio lately that does my head in as well. "Something, something, shape of a tattoo". What the fu** is the shape of a tattoo exactly? It's indeterminate. I think the word they were looking for is "form".

The song sucks, coz it’s as soft as Darling in a Gold Coast hub. :p

We just need to go back to the old one or get a band with some balls to do it, like Kill Devil Hills or Psychedelic Porn Crumpets. 😊

The song needs to have one of those old marching band beats like all the traditional songs.

It just sounds stupid when they blurt it out after the game.

eh...it's a nice thing to have...I guess.

Just not very inspiring as something to try and belt out post-game.

Eagle Rock is the Ben Cousins of songs. Spiritual leader of the songs.


A little tweak up of the original song could work?

For years they took the best of us
And bound them to their core
But now we've turned the tables and
all around the nation, West Coast Eagles soar!


Chorus
We're the Eagles
West Coast Eagles
And we're here to show you why
We're the big birds, kings of the big game
We're the Eagles, we're flying high!

For years we learned the lessons
And we learned them very well
And now we've added West Coast magic
And we'll give you merry hell

Chorus
So watch out all you know-alls
All you wisemen see the least
Cause you'll get more than just a footy game
You'll get a West Coast Eagles feast!

Chorus
We're the big birds, kings of the big game
We're the Eagles, we're flying high!
We're the Eagles, we're flying high!
