I had a roommate once that was a huge Tennessee fan and would regularly break into the Rocky Top fight song, talk about good ol' Rocky Top, and would sometimes just say the words, "Rocky Top!! Wooooo!!!"

So when I hiked the Appalachian Trail years later, I took a shiat on top of Rocky Top.

they are promising an impoverished town of 1,700 big things if the residents would be willing to change the town's name from Lake City to that of the song...Development plans include a Disney-style interactive, 3-D animated theater; a Branson, Mo.-style live music venue; an indoor-outdoor waterpark and a 500-seat paddleboat restaurant on an as yet-to-be-constructed artificial lake

But no plans to actually, you know, make anything?

Vols are multi cultural

They play football like Yankees sing like cats and buy real dolls like Japanese.

Good luck with that.  The last time Tennessee beat Auburn was a year after Manning left.

WDE!!!

is there a town in Alabama called Crimson Tide? War Eagle? what's the point

lake city isn't even near the smoky mountains

The state's really three distinct regions, Memphis and west Tennessee, where the Vols aren't that popular in the grand scheme of things, Nashville and middle Tennessee, where the Vols are the most popular college team, but there is ample competition for fan affection, and Knoxville and east Tennessee, where the craziest Vol fans live in the hills, drink moonshine from their own stills, and FedExed feces to Chris Fowler when Peyton Manning lost the Heisman.

Fowler's feces came with a note -- "phark you!," it said.

This really happened.

Corn in a jar is moonshine.

Rocky Top is a catchy song but like almost any music, it gets old. I don't see how they can listen to it over and over without getting tired of it. I've seen/heard people at tailgates play it on repeats for hours at a time. The odd thing about it though is that they use it as a fight song. It's more of a state pride/lifestyle song than anything else. Apparently Tennessee actually has a different fight song but I doubt  anyone who isn't a hardcore Vols fans knows what it is.

/Will they have to pay telephone bills in the town of Rocky Top?

Rocky Top is pretty much the fight song. There are a few other cheers but no other songs.
