Rock Bands heart Marching Bands: 3 Videos

Band geeks? Okay. Call 'em what you will, but when was the last time YOU performed with rock stars?


Check out these three band-tastic videos!

1. The only time I can support my college arch-rivals Notre Dame? When their band performed in OKGO's video, "This Too Shall Pass."
(it would've been way better if OKGO'd invited the BC Eagles...but whatever)

2. My parents played Fleetwood Mac (on 8-track, no less!) to help me fall asleep when I was 4 or 5. No way I would've snoozed to this version of "Don't Stop," featuring the USC Trojan marching band.
(poor video quality, but the sound is GREAT)

3. And oh, two great bands that go great together: The Boston College Screaming Eagles Marching Band performing "Shipping Up to Boston" with the Dropkick Murphys. I only wish I'd still been in school for this performance...
