The Washington State Fight Song, words by Zella Melcher and music by Phyllis Sayles, is the official fight song for Washington State University. The song was written in 1919 by WSU students Melcher and Sayles as a class project.[1]


The song appears in the 1985 film Volunteers, sung by John Candy's character Tom Tuttle from Tacoma, Washington, and later used as a war cry by the Communists.[1]
