The Top 5 reasons to play Renegade and the Top 5 reasons when NOT to play Renegade

In the last 8 years, the STYX song "Renegade" has become an anthem for Steeler fans.  Heinz Field literally explodes when the video screen goes black and the song slowly begins its ascent (see video).  Within a minute, the whole stadium is a frenzy of rabid fans waving Terrible Towels.  What if we played Renegade when certain situations cropped up in our lives?  Here are the top 5 reasons to play Renegade, and the top 5 reasons when you should NOT play Renegade.  If you have your own reason, feel free to leave a comment below.

Top 5 reasons to play “Renegade”
1)    The Steelers just scored to go ahead with less than a minute to play in the game
2)    You won the lottery
3)    Your pre-nup was upheld during your divorce hearing
4)    You won a free trip to the superbowl and the Steelers are in it (feel free to loop Renegade for this one)
5)    Before, during or after any divisional and/or playoff game

Top 5 reasons when NOT to play “Renegade”
1)    You just proved to your wife that she is wrong during an argument
2)    Your son just got tackled by a neighborhood girl (Britney OWNS you, son)
3)    Your 15yr old daughter just told you she is pregnant by a 23yr old married guy…….who has 2 kids already
4)    Bruce Arians just signed a lifetime contract with the Steelers (this should probably be higher on the list)
5)    Your mother-in-law is moving in with you for the foreseeable future


  1. Rules to live by!

  2. Also do not play it if the cop who pulled you over is about to let you off.
