"Fight On"


Fight on for ol' SC,
Our men fight on to victory.
Our Alma Mater dear
Looks up to you,
Fight on and win
For ol' SC
Fight on to victory
Fight on!


Listen to "Fight On"



USC's fight song, Fight On, was composed in 1922 by USC dental student Milo Sweet (lyrics by Sweet and Glen Grant) as an entry to inspire fans and players in a Trojan spirit contest.

According to legend, Fight On blared from the deck of a transport ship as the Americans stormed an island held by the Japanese during World War II. On hearing the song, the troops let out a tremendous roar -- and eventually won the Aleutian Campaign.
