the only after school activity with long, dark, coed bus rides
Yo, why the hell is the marching band so lucky. They get coed bus rides in the dark.

The best damn sport in the world. Drumline, Flagline, and Hornline all working together to show those *other* bands what we're all about.
AIRPORT, you are not a scufflin' band. You are a marching band. Do it right!

Play with the band, *sigh*, not with yourselves.

Sell it ladies, sell it!

You will always be our sexiest drumline!

1. The one thing that can both give you a life, and totally take it away at the same time.
2. Where "one more time" actually means 57439204 more times.
3. The most accomplished, but least appreciated team in the whole school.
4. The only time it's legal for an elder to demand a group of kids to "finger correctly" and "blow harder".
5. When EVERYTHING is a sexual referance.
6. When your closest friends and boyfriend/girlfriend are in the band. And ONLY in the band.
7. The only place it's possible to be singing "The Wheels on the Bus" during a trip while a couple is doing inappropriate things under a blanket in the best seats.
8. When you can fall asleep even with the drumline hacking on the back of your headrest.
9. When you spend more time in the band room than in your own home, or anywhere else for that matter. In fact, you just go down there to hang out and get passes out of classes to "practice for districts."
10. The best thing anyone could possibly be a part of in the world. Period.
1. non-band person - "Can you do anything tonight?"
band person - "No.. I have band practice.. YAY!"
2. band director - "Alright let's reset that one more, guys!"
(many times later..)
"Alright guys, I mean it this time."
(more times later..)
"Okay seriously, we've got it for real this time.."
3. *school announcements*
"Last night our football team lost a game 0-693465. Good effort, team! We know you'll get them next week! Spanish Club is to meet in room 203 after school tonight. Oh, and not to mention our band had some kinda thing goin' on last night and won something or something.. Also, I have a hangnail.."
4. band director- "Alright everyone, I need you to really get those fingers moving and I need you to blow plenty hard!"
5. band director- "Stop messing around and get that thing in your mouth!"
band kids - *snicker, snicker*
6. band kid - "My bestfriends, boyfriend and I are all gonna go to Bobby's house tonight and watch last year's DCI Finals DVD! I can't wait!"
7. band kid - "I heard Suzy and Tommy were getting it on in the back of the bus while we were singing band songs."
8. drummer - *hackhackhackhackhackhack*
band kid - *undisturbed sleeping*
9. band kid - "Hey Mr. So&So, can I get a pass to go practice for districts?"
Mr So&So - "Sure Billy! Golly gee, you band kids are so responsible!"
(in the band room)
band kid - "WHO'S UP FOR SOME BAND VOLLEYBALL OVER THE GONG STAND?!"
10. band kids - "Marching band is AWESOME!"

2. "pick up those knees!!!"
3. "that's not attention!!!"
4. "this is a marching band, NOT a walking band!!"
5. "keep those bells up!! you're not waiting for a bus!!"
6. "left! left! left!"
7. "this is a fight song, not a lullaby!!!"
8. "come on, row that boat!!!"

something that you love despite the fact that it consumes your whole life and that its basically a living hell.

its where you will have your greatest moments of your life. you meet the most perverted, funny people there that will be your friends for the rest of your life.

so pretty much besides all the fun you be having with the people you will have to know how to march. it A LOT harder than it looks. you have to think about so many things at once and it gets very, very confusing.

its very hard for the fresh man to learn how to march, and then you have to play and make little designs on the field too?

most freshman don't actually play while marching, just so they can actually march.

its a high school activity you will actually enjoy despite the confusion.

you love it so much you even like to march in the mud, rain, and the blazing hot sun at band camp.

you will learn to appreciate the dirty things in life, trust me.

you will love getting naked in front of everybody.

you will love the uniforms, no matter how many buttons and zippers they have.

you will have a family you actually like.

the band works harder than the football team, win more awards, and probably have more fun.

the best way to make friends your freshman year.

its a big group of amazing hilarious (yet perverted) people who can march in step, following a drill chart, while either playing music or spinning a flag/rifle/sabre

its One of the hardest sports that is often overlooked. yes, its a sport, get over it.

its pretty much one large family with lots of incest. Made up of the band, the drum majors, the band director, the colorguard and the, usually very hot, drumline.

it may be an excuse for not doing homework.

better definition:


1. What people see: A group of people who devote every minute of every day to memorizing music and learning routines. They spend hours doing nothing on a bus to competition, work their asses off, sweat a TON, and get back on the bus. They sit on the bus being tired, sore, and unable to breathe because of the smell.
People wonder why we do it.

2. What really goes on: A huge family of band people spend their free time memorizing music and learning routines, with much cussing and perverted comments in between. They spend hours on a bus playing truth or dare, laughing, joking, sleeping, and making out against windows. They perform in HOT uniforms, sweat to death, but can't help but smile as they listen to the roar of the crowd. They climb, exhausted, back onto the bus, where they proceed to throw full water bottles at each other and have chugging contests. Many people sleep, and wake up soaking wet. Others continue to make out and play truth or dare, all while stripping, and in the case of the girls, sitting around in sports bras. They go home, sleep for 24 hours straight, and wake up eager to do it all again.

One band member in the marching band says, "You know, I actually DO have a life outside of band." The others look at him, look at each other, then one screams "Blasphemer!" and they all chase the rogue out of the bandroom.

"NO, I'M NOT MARCHING DOWN THE HALLWAY!" "ooh... well maybe i am"

"Band Ten' Hut (BOOM)......Band Horns Up (AND UP)......Mark Time Mark Lift Left - Left - Left Right Left -- Left - Left - Left Right Left......Forward March And......"
