Come Join The Band is the official fight song of Stanford University. The lyrics were written in 1907 by screenwriter and playwright Aurania Ellerbeck Rouverol, then a student at Stanford, and are set to the trio from Robert Browne Hall's New Colonial March.[1] Although Come Join the Band remains Stanford's official fight song, the Stanford Band nowadays plays All Right Now as their usual fight song at football games.


Come Join The Band has been recorded several times by the Leland Stanford Junior University Marching Band and is featured in the Band's three most recent recordings: The One, The Only (2008), This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things (2003), and Ultrasound (1999).
