I'm biased but Anchors Away has them all beat. There's drinking and rowdyness, faithful service, frienship, commraderie, battle, all rolled into one song. Doesnt get much better than a song that depicts your service than that IMO!

Meh, You guys are great and I love every one of ya but really, it lacks the .. romanticism.. Anchors away captures the unique culture that the USN and, ironically, the USMC deal with traditionally of deplyoing overseas. I dont think that Anchors Away is not exclusionary of our USMC brothers in it's spirit.

What makes it great is the romanticisim. The Hymn captures the image of the Marine perfectly. Rowdy, romantic, loyal and proud.

On Brave Old Army Team, then Anchors Aweigh. Both of which are Fight Songs at their respective academies.

Neither the AF or CG Academies have particularly memorable FIGHT songs.

The Marines have a Hymn, but it ain't a fight song.

How stupid are you? you can hum the USMC hymn in almost any country on this fucking planet and people will cringe.

Who first planted the American flag on foreign soil? Marines.

Oh for kris sakes it's a Offenbach opera bouffe aria, not a fight song. And if I hum they don't cringe, maybe you just can't hum worth a shit.

I'm proud to be an Airman in the USAF, but.......

I hate the the Air Force song.

Dog Faced Soldier wins!

I Wouldn't Give A Bean
To Be A Fancy Pants Marine
I'd Rather Be A
Dog Face Soldier Like I Am

I Wouldn't Trade My Old OD's
For All The Navy's Dungarees
For I'm The Walking Pride
Of Uncle Sam

On Army Posters That I Read
It Says "Be All That You Can"
So They're Tearing Me Down
To Build Me Over Again

I'm Just A Dog Face Soldier
With A Rifle On My Shoulder
And I Eat Raw Meat
For Breakfast E'V'RY Day

So Feed Me Ammunition
Keep Me In Third Division
Your Dog Face Soldier's A-Okay
