The Eagles’ Joe Walsh in an Auburn shirt


On February 1, 1980, The Eagles played Auburn as part of their “Long Run Tour.” They opened with “Hotel California.” And in what surely has to be the Tommy Joe Eagles of Rock Stars in Auburn Shirts (see Alabama in Auburn gear here, Willie Nelson here, Jimmy Buffett here, and of course Dr. Dre here), Joe Walsh, at some point in their not one (“Rocky Mountain Way”), not two (“Greeks Don’t Want No Freaks”), but three (“Best of My Love”) encore set in Beard-Eaves Memorial Coliseum, traded the tie-die map of the cosmos thing he was wearing for an Auburn baseball-stye tee, which the 12,000 strong crowd—the most since The Commodores played in ’78—probably ate up even more than when he put the cowboy hat on earlier.

Bama students vandalized their own campus with Auburn graffiti before the 1953 Iron Bowl

In 1953, a Bama student, either out of self-loathing, or in an attempt to rile his team to victory in the upcoming Iron Bowl, painted not just random doors and alleys of his own campus with Auburn slogans, but Denny freakin' Chimes. So when someone tries to stop you from relieving yourself on the Saban statue at this year's game, just tell them: "I learned it from watching you."
