Mike McGuinness, lecturer in sports studies, looks at a
neglected area of sport fandom, the use of popular music by
fans, teams and sports to engender emotion, an identity and
as part of a commodification process. Inevitably the largest
number of examples come from football but other sports have
copied the process to develop their public persona. Examples
of records made by teams, sportsmen and women will form a
strong element in the discussion.
