Are These The 10 Greatest Jock Jams of All Time?

Everyone who has ever been to Everbank Field knows there is a tight playlist of “go-to” songs to get the crowd amped up as the Jags attempt to do anything besides go three-and-out.

Chances are if you grew up in the 90’s you owned some of these songs on one of the “Jock Jams” CDs that were so popular during that decade.

There’s always been heavy debate on these tracks though: Do they do the trick of making tens of thousands of fans rise to their feet, or are they too corny to accomplish anything outside of a embarrassing memory or two?

Billboard.com has decided to add fuel to the fire by ranking what they think are the "The 100 Greatest Jock Jams of All Time."

There were five official volumes of the "Jock Jams" series with a total of 107 songs, but this list isn't limited to those. There are even some recent 'jock jams' on the list. 

Here's the Top 10: 

1. "We Will Rock You", Queen, 1977 

2. "Welcome to the Jungle", Guns N' Roses, 1987 

3. "Hip Hop Hooray", Naughty By Nature, 1993 

 

4. "Kernkraft 400", Zombie Nation, 1999 

 

5. "Seven Nation Army", The White Stripes, 2003 

 

6. "Eye of the Tiger", Survivor, 1982 

 

7. "Rock and Roll Part 2", Gary Glitter, 1972 

 

8. "Jump Around", House of Pain, 1992 

 

9. "Crazy Train", Ozzy Osbourne, 1981 

 

10. "Get Ready for This", 2 Unlimited, 1991 

Other songs on the list that feel slightly dated at this point: "Whoomp! (There It Is)", "The Final Countdown", and the 90’s techno mega-hit "Sandstorm"

Since you're probably wondering, C&C Music Factory's "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)" is at #25.

Help for Harvey:  Donate to Salvation Army for Disaster Relief

We have all witnessed the horrible images of flooding and utter devastation along the Gulf Coast from Hurricane Harvey. 

The storm could end being one of the costliest in American history. Cleanup and recovery will be a years-long effort. 

As we have witnessed the heart-wrenching stories, many have wondered how they could help. With such a large-scale disaster, it can be hard to figure out where to start. 

We at Cox Media Group Jacksonville were asking that question and began to actively mobilize our partners. We feel for our neighbors, and we know that using our reach on Radio and CBS 47/Fox 30 Action News Jax that we can appeal to Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia. 

We turned to the Salvation of Northeast Florida to ask what they needed. The answer was money. It is far too soon to collect and deliver items. That day will eventually come. Money will make the biggest immediate, direct impact. 

So we created a 12-hour radiothon, “Help for Harvey”, to raise money for the local Salvation Army to restock their mobile disaster canteen. The canteen has been deployed to Texas, and our goal is to help replenish the supplies so that thousands of people can have a warm, prepared meal. 

The Salvation Army estimates it costs $13,000 per day to feed 1,500 people three meals from the canteen. Our goal is to feed as many people for as many days as possible. 

That is where you come in. We need you to call our radiothon from 5am-5pm on Thursday, August 31st. The phone number is (904) 697-3326. Every dollar makes a difference, and the more you donate the more people YOU will help to feed. 

You can also make a secure, online donation here

You can also make a secure donation at any Vystar Credit Union. Be sure to specify it is for “Help for Harvey” to benefit the Salvation Army of NE Florida.

Or you can make a donation in person to the Salvation Army in NE Florida:328 N Ocean Street Jacksonville, FL32202

Be sure you put DISASTER in the check memo.

The Most Delicious Ice Cream Flavors Ranked

A new poll had people rank the best ice cream flavors, and we fully expected a boring pick at #1 - either chocolate or vanilla.

Apparently we're not quite that boring...

More than 5,000 people voted online at the website Ranker, and Cookies and Cream took first place!

Here are the others in the top ten: 

  1. Cookies and cream
  2. Chocolate
  3. Vanilla
  4. Mint chocolate chip
  5. Strawberry (Neapolitan with vanilla, chocolate, AND strawberry came in 12th)
  6. Chocolate chip
  7. French vanilla (If they'd lumped it in with regular vanilla, it probably would have come in first, but they're different though - real "French vanilla" ice cream has eggs in it)
  8. Rocky road
  9. Coffee
  10. Peanut butter cup

Voting has been officially closed on the topic, but that doesn’t mean you can’t debate below. Tell us what you think got the snub!

A Chart Ranking the Best Types of French Fries Is Creating Major Controversy on the Internet

Back in March of last year, a website called Food Republic put together a chart where they subjectively ranked a bunch of types of French fries from best to worst.

Apparently no one noticed the chart until this weekend, when someone tweeted about it, and now it's tearing the Internet apart.

As far as we can tell, not a SINGLE person has responded, "Hey, great rankings, you guys nailed it." 

People seem to have issues with everything on this list, most notably:

  • The disrespect of putting curly fries sixth
  • Counting tater tots as fries
  • Not including poutine
  • Giving shoestring fries any spot on the list other than dead last.

Tell  us below what you think of the “controversial” Fries Chart!
