As players exited Tiger Stadium on Saturday after LSU's 45-21 win against Texas A&M, the Golden Band from Tigerland rewarded the remaining fans with a rendition of the popular song "Neck."

The song was greeted by cheers followed by a familiar scene as some fans, particularly in the student section's area, belted out a sexually vulgar five-letter phrase during the tune.

The LSU Athletic Department once banned the band’s rendition of Cameo’s and Dem 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.

One attempt to curb bad fan behavior was the LSU Athletic Department’s 2013 “Tradition Matters” campaign. Stadium workers passed out thousands of “tradition matters” stickers and flyers in an effort to persuade students to not tarnish longtime chants and songs with vulgarities. Cheerleaders hoisted “Keep it Clean” signs into the air amid their flip flops and stunts.
