The Golden Band from Tigerland boosted fans’ spirit last Saturday by breaking out its crowd favorite, “Neck,” in Mississippi State’s Davis Wade Stadium in Starkville, but don’t expect to hear it during the Tigers’ game against Auburn on Saturday.
“We probably will not play ‘Neck’ this week,” said Roy King, the band’s director.
The LSU Athletic Department banned the band’s rendition of Cameo’s and Dean Franchize Boyz’s “Talkin’ Out Da Side of Ya Neck” in 2010 after the student section replaced the original lyric, “Oh oh talkin’ out the side of your neck,” with a sexually vulgar line. The line not only was heard throughout the stadium but broadcast on nationally televised games.
The band brought the song back in 2013 and has since been selective in performing it.
CBS will broadcast the LSU-Auburn game. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m.
