Imagine being an opposing player in a rival's stadium. You can block out general crowd noise just fine. But as soon as the band plays, you hear tens of thousands sing in unison, sending chills down your spine. That is the power of college fight songs.

These are the melodic battle cries college teams have used to rally their fans and pump up their athletes. Fans may come from different areas or grown up in different eras, but one of the things that unite them is when they sing that familiar song that reminds them of the school they love so much. We at the Tylt want to know which fight song is the best in the country. In this matchup, Texas A&M's "Aggie War Hymn" faces off against Georgia Tech's "Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Teac."

Texas A&M's battle song was penned inside a World War I trench in France, so the validity of "the Aggie Battle Hymn" should never be questioned. And true to its brand, the song has plenty of Texas Longhorn taunts to keep fans happy.

Here are some lyrics from the battle cry:

Good-bye to Texas University
So long to the orange and the white
Good luck to dear old Texas Aggies
They are the boys that show the real old fight
“The eyes of Texas are upon you . . .”
That is the song they sing so well
So good-bye to Texas University
We’re going to beat you all to Chig-gar-roo-gar-rem
Chig-gar-roo-gar-rem
Rough Tough! Real Stuff! Texas A&M!

Georgia Tech may not be the most popular football team now, but the school's fight song has stood the test of time. The song's early 20th century origins are murky, but the battle cry reached peak popularity when it was sung by Richard Nixon and Nikita Khrushchev at their 1959 meeting in Moscow.

Here are the lyrics that get Yellow Jacket fans pumped every game:

I'm a Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech and a hell of an engineer,
A helluva, helluva, helluva, helluva, hell of an engineer,
Like all the jolly good fellows, I drink my whiskey clear,
I'm a Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech and a hell of an engineer.
Oh, if I had a daughter, sir, I'd dress her in White and Gold,
And put her on the campus, to cheer the brave and bold.
But if I had a son, sir, I'll tell you what he'd do.
He would yell, "To Hell with Georgia," like his daddy used to do.
Oh, I wish I had a barrel of rum and sugar three thousand pounds,
A college bell to put it in and a clapper to stir it around.
I'd drink to all good fellows who come from far and near.
I'm a ramblin', gamblin', hell of an engineer.
