Come Join the Band

Come Join The Band is the official fight song of Stanford University. The lyrics were written in 1907 by screenwriter and playwright Aurania Rouverol, then a student at Stanford, and are set to the trio from Robert Browne Hall's New Colonial March.[1] Although Come Join the Band remains Stanford's official fight song, the Stanford Band nowadays plays All Right Now as their usual fight song at football games.


"Come Join The Band" has been recorded several times, and has been featured on at least four albums:
