Watch the Virginia Tech Hokies bounce around to “Enter Sandman”

Virginia Tech has Metallica’s “Enter Sandman.” The Iowa Hawkeyes “swarm” out of the tunnel to “Back in Black.” And those crazy East Carolina University Pirates jog through purple smoke to Jimi Hendrix’s “Purple Haze.”

So what’s your favorite college football entrance song? We’re talking about the pre-game music played as the players run out onto the field before kickoff. Some schools use videos, some (like Notre Dame) use their classic fight songs, and others grab onto the latest trend.

When it comes to getting fans pumped up about their home teams, teams will adopt nearly any pop song as their anthem, from AC/DC to U2. So before this weekend’s big rivalry game, why not make a music playlist of the songs that stir your alma mater spirit? Crank it in the car, take it to your tailgate party, and listen on any music device, regardless of brand. It’s easy with store-and-play service MyMusicCloud.

U2 Fans: Watch Super Bowl Sunday for a Bono Surprise

U2 fans are about to get a sweet taste of Bono-Rock Sunday as the band premieres a brand-new song, “Invisible,” during the Super Bowl’s Seahawks vs. Broncos game on the Fox network. But you’ll have to watch carefully, because Bono and the guys aren’t performing during halftime. (That honor goes to Bruno Mars.)

Instead, U2’s new song will debut during a commercial for Bono’s charity (RED) and Bank of America that will air sometime during the 4-hour showdown. For up to 24 hours later, “Invisible” will also be available as a limited-edition *free* download on iTunes.

This is the first glimpse of the band’s upcoming album in nearly three years. The worldwide supergroup has been teasing fans by continually postponing the release of their first full album since 2009. Originally slated for 2011, it was pushed back after the band reportedly still hadn’t found what it was looking for with then-producer RedOne.

Of course, then Bono took on the award-winning song “Ordinary Love,” which he wrote and recorded for the Nelson Mandela biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

“It’s just a call you can’t say no to,” Bono explained to a reporter last fall. “There’s a bit of pressure for us to finish [the U2 album] — and then this [Mandela request] arrived.”

Although not exactly a stadium rocker, the reverent “Ordinary Love” has proved to be a solid investment for the band. It won a Golden Globe for Best Original Song earlier this month, and is up for the same award at March’s Academy Awards.

So what can fans expect from the hotly awaited U2 album? It’s reportedly being produced by Danger Mouse for a *rumored* April 2014 release. In a 2013 radio interview, Bono insisted they’re not “faffing around” this time, promising the new music is “very different, [a] very fresh sound and some beautiful songs, big hooks.”

Meanwhile, the band is moving in their usual mysterious ways. They’ve only played top-secret private performances, like actor Sean Penn’s third annual Help Haiti benefit on Jan. 11 in Beverly Hills, Calif. There, Bono sang the hits “I Will Follow,” “Desire,” and “Vertigo” as well as an acoustic duet with Haitian singer Anaelle Jean-Pierre. Watch them tear it up in the video below.
