The Elon fight song is played at all Elon sporting events. At football games, the song is played by the Fire of the Carolinas, Elon’s marching band. At basketball games, the song is played by the university Pep Band. The fight song is played to the tune of F.E. Bigelow’s march, “Our Director.” The lyrics were written by Elon student and band director Mark Z. Rhodes ’23 in 1921. [source]
