Info on Venezuela deleted[edit]

Since english Wikipedia conserns things only relevant in english-speaking countries, the information on Venezuelan "billboard-like" position of this song is unimportant to the understanding of the general outline. Deleted! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 189.84.193.2 (talk) 02:35, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

The above comment is moronic. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.30.204.201 (talk) 23:34, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Journey version?[edit]

Isn't there a fairly well known —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.233.213.59 (talk) 02:10, 21 November 2007 (UTC)


Mizzou[edit]

What about Missouri? If you're going to include LSU for using the song, you also need to mention University of Missouri-Columbia Tigers because they use it all the time. I personally think sports teams don't belong on this page anyway. Karen 15:54, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Dumb and Dumber[edit]

Is the dumb and dumber thing really necessary?

Another version?[edit]

are you aware of the version by the scorpions, or am I just mistaken here? thought there was one...

To the best of my knowledge, there's one supposed to be from the Scorpions, but it's actually Survivor, just mislabeled.--Enigmatick 23:15, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Survivor Rocky III - Eye of the tiger.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Survivor Rocky III - Eye of the tiger.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Bradley Vugrinovich?[edit]

"The picture, taken circa 1997 by a likely kid toucher then posing as a sports photographer of young boys, has been often been compared to Kevin Garnett's scowl in terms of the ability to intimidate rivals" What is this line even mean? Who is Bradley Vugrinovich?

Mislabeled as a Foreigner song[edit]

A quick internet search of Eye of the tiger will bring up a lot of sites by people who mistakenly think this song was by Foreigner. Most of the results are from sites offering ringtones. Is it worth mentioning that so many people mislabel this song's performers? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.83.75.110 (talk) 13:19, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

Genre[edit]

Could the folks that have been going back and forth for a few days pop in and have a say about why they prefer one genre over another. Neither side is willing to back down so maybe they could gain some support by presenting their case here. Dawnseeker2000 21:39, 6 April 2010 (UTC)


Lists of uses[edit]

this is one of the most used songs, so should we list every use? why not mention that it is commonly used by sports teams, with and without tiger mascots, and often used in other media when parodying the scene from rocky etc. 67.176.160.47 (talk) 08:00, 27 April 2010 (UTC)

It would be better if allmost all uses of the song in media can be covered in the article.(115.241.45.203 (talk) 17:32, 25 December 2012 (UTC))

Music video[edit]

Last.fm attributes the music video as 1993. [1] Is this an error? Some details on the video should be added to the article. --Dmitry (talkcontibs ) 20:32, 26 November 2010 (UTC)

Article was better before[edit]

Cover versions and usage[edit]

I removed both sections. Such sections can be useful, but in their current form they were just uncited laundry lists. The sections can be re-added if someone can somehow rework them into prose, add some references and somehow state how each usage is relevant. --Jtalledo (talk) 17:33, 9 March 2012 (UTC)
