Come Join The Band is the official fight song of Stanford University. The lyrics were written in 1907 by screenwriter and playwright Aurania Ellerbeck Rouverol, then a student at Stanford, and are set to the trio from Robert Browne Hall's New Colonial March.[1] Although Come Join the Band remains Stanford's official fight song, the Stanford Band nowadays plays All Right Now as their usual fight song at football games.

Recordings[edit]

Come Join The Band has been recorded several times by the Leland Stanford Junior University Marching Band and is featured in the Band's three most recent recordings: The One, The Only (2008), This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things (2003), and Ultrasound (1999).
