the most underappreciated team in any school.

a group of students who practice as many hours or more as any other team. A team expected to have every movement, head to toe, in precision while playing an instrument to a complex score by memory and moving across the entire football field forming perfect imagery all while wearing the most ungodly uncomfortable uniforms. and other than a claims by other members receive no recognition other the negative stereotyping
I've put more time and effort into perfecting my music, choreography, and technique then all of my classes combined yet no one even acknowledged our marching band won the state championship

1. My life
2. A place where you can be yourself, and know that nobody (almost nobody) is going to make fun of you
3. The marching band consists of many social cliques, and gossip and fighting tends to spread around. But that's life
4. Normally comes with a color guard--the color guard is a group of girls, and sometimes a few guys.
5. The color guard is super annoying because they always try to take our boyfriends.
6. The color guard never stays on beat with us, and it really annoys us.
7. Band bus rides home, always consist of making out, cuddling, random singing, occasional dancing, and on special, romantic occasions, fingering. (Yes in the pants)
8. Band is NOT for nerds. Almost all the band members in our band are considerably attractive.

9. The band bus was where I got my first kiss.
10. The band director is a complete ass, but we don't care because being in band is totally worth it.
11. If you aren't in marching band you can never achieve the level of badass that we are.

One time we went on a marching band show and nothing felt more wonderful than hearing our highschool name announced over the loud speaker as first place winners. We hugged. We cried with joy. We screamed. We felt perfect. We were all a team of friends in unity. Nothing is better than that feeling.

A CULT of emtremely passionate band geeks. Consists of the hottest guys you will ever see and the weirdest kids that get along with everyone. Even though it's the band from the schools biggest rival, we still joke around and eat cookies.

Exactly what the word implies. A band that marches, usually in formation, on a football field.

I have played Trumpet and Violin, I have been in jazz band, and I have watched my schools marching band practice. We have over 200 members and are near top in the country. (Fairmont Highschool). This being said I will begin my rant.

Marching Band takes skill and time and I respect it's members but it is NOWHERE near as demanding as football. I have heard the "8 hour practices in the 90 degree weather a month before school starts" stuff. Football is a year round sport. During the summer (the WHOLE summer), players practice in full pads sometimes more than twice a day, every day. Players take brutal hits and must always be on top of their assignments. If you have not played on a football team then you will not understand the vast knowledge of the game and mental/physical toughness it takes to be a football player. There are hundreds of plays and dozens of formations that every player is expected to know. The work football players do makes the Marching Band look laughable. Just face it Marching Band kids, you do not work harder than football kids. The only thing you have on football is that you can play instruments while marching in formation.

The truth hurts doesnt it?

This definition will have tons of thumbs down which just goes to show how every overzealous band member can't just admit that there ARE in fact people that work harder than them.
Mr. Marching Band Member: Oh my god, marching band was sooooo hard today! We had to practice for 8 hours in the 90 degree weather. One of our coaches got mad at us and made us run FIVE 20 YARD SPRINTS!

Mr. Football Player: Really? I had a hard day too. We had to be at the field at 6:00 a.m. for a 2 hour lifting and conditioning session. We came back at 12 and practiced for 3 hours in full pads. We put in 15 new plays and 3 new formations but our offensive linemen kept jumping off sides so our coaches made us run 100 yard sprints until we puked. Three of our players passed out from heat exhaustion. We had a one hour break and then had another practice session. Well, I better go, I have to get up at 5:45 tomorrow.
