FIGHT SONGThe Illinois State fight song was written by Kenyon S. Fletcher, a teacher in industrial technology, in 1932. Fletcher also directed the Illinois State band.
Prior to the fight song we know today, another song title "Normal Loyalty," was used.
As the Redbird athletes enter the floor or field, the first stanza is sung proudly by fans. A growing Redbird tradition is various Redbird teams signing the fight song to the home crowd after victories. This has created a resurgence for the traditional school melody.
