Technical Support Staffers---Whats your Theme Song?


I don;t know how many of you guys/girls out there work on helpdesk teams, are the "IT" person for your company, but every Team should have a theme song. I was just wondering what theme song you guys use. For example,

My daytime team consists of a Rush/Dream Theater Fan, a hip-hop fan, a girl who is a self described pretentious indie rocker, and me (old school Social Distortion and other classic Punk/hardcore). We decided that out Tech Support Theme Song is Metallica - Master of Puppets.

Whats yours?

The "Asshole" song by denis leary. Personally, I think it should be the national anthem as well. It so fits my country.

Well, I haven't been a helldesk staffer in a while, but for those country music fans out there, that song "here's your sign" is an obvious choice.

I generally find that the birdy song fits in well... a little intentional absurdity goes nicely with the crap i have to work with here!

haha, good songs. Especially the 'here's your sign'. My job theme song... Dunno, but with all the bickering about/with/and between upper management lately, I'm gonna say System of a Down - F*** the System

I've never worked support, but if I did, i suppose my theme song would be "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" theme.

Jimmy Buffett
The Hang Out Gang
Written by - Jimmy Buffett & Buzz Cason
From - High Cumberland Jubilee

The tour bus passed here yesterday
Exciting all the fools who pay
To see the naked lady in our yard

The hang out gang is back in town
Rumor has it going 'round they brought back
Four new groupies and a St. Bernard

We're peaceful and abiding cats some call Gypsies
Some call brats but bare feet don't tear streets up like their bus

All we was doing' was a hangin' and little Koochie was sangin'
Mama I'm guilty of a hangin' out
I know it's a shabby old building but after all ain't we God's children
And Lord it's a good place for hangin' out

The fast approachin' local heat was poundin' out the southwest beat
When they came upon Koochie in our yard
She smiled sir I meant no harm just a little suntan on my arm
They wound up takin' in our St. Bernard
It didn't have a tag y'all


Now you hang with me and I'll hang with you and we'll hang out
'Til we both turn blue mama I'm guilty of a hangin' out


All we was doin' was a hangin' and little Koochie kept sangin'
Mama I'm guilty of a hangin' out

'Yeah, they moved up there about a month ago. Fixed up that little cabin on
the ridge. They really them long hairs? Well, Homer seen 'em. Homer seen how
long it was. Still reckon I seen it. They a bunch of weirdos. One of them
had a little instrument looked like a mandolin. Why Lord, they might freeze
to death up there this winter. Well. Homer, turn that radio down.'
