Some OSU students and alumni aren't too thrilled about the new OSU fight song. Criticism of "Cowboy Forever" has been voiced on radio talk shows and internet message boards.
Listening to “Cowboys Forever” made me feel lame. I have never heard a song that represents the way I feel about myself or my school, and I wish this one was not it. The cheesy lyrics in this song are plain overwhelming.
