In Game

Oakland-Alameda Coliseum looks like a prison on the outside, which is fitting since inside you’ll find the wildest and rowdiest fans in the NFL. Raiders fans are known as “Raider Nation” and come to games decked out in not only silver and black but also intimidating costumes that are designed to strike fear into the opposition. The passion and pageantry on display at the Oakland Coliseum is unparalleled in the NFL and makes a visit a must for any die-hard NFL fans.

In addition to the incredible fan support found in the Oakland Coliseum, you’ll also experience one of the most intimate and old-school venues when attending a Raiders game. The stadium lacks some of the fancier amenities that other stadiums throughout the league have, but that doesn’t mean you won’t have a great experience here as the stadium’s small size creates an intimate atmosphere that many other stadiums throughout the league lack.

  1. Oakland Raiders

    Oakland Raiders by Luniz is the first song dedicated to the Oakland Raiders and its fans. As a matter of fact, Luniz named his album “Silver and Black” which is a symbolic way to dedicate the whole work to the Raiders. Talk about dedication!!

    Yo yo, I’m from the land of the playas, slick talkas, and colla poppas
    Narcotics, and boss ballas, pit bulls and rottweilers
    Niggaz wit gold teeth, old schools on gold feet, killas, and O.G’s
    Task postil the police
    Mac Arth to foothill, East 14th
    Sobrante park, woodfield, Plymouth, and walnut street
    From the ville to seminary to the rollin 20’s
    Wit ghetto celebrities
    Like Big Feek and Little D
    See the east bay dragon is the home of the panthers
    Where niggaz slang tons of crack and feds catch it on camera
    Throw you in the slammer
    It’s the home of $hort and Hammer
    Boss ballas move to Atlanta

    That’s my ropas, that’s my nephew
    That’s my weeples, that’s my nizzle
    Please believe me

    And Askari X was a Raider when he was a “Ward of the State”
    And Dangerous Dame was a Raider when he was callin hoes names

    Now we to Eastmont wit the sideshows
    But it’s fun, and I’m famous, but I aint tryna die tho

  2. Raider Nation

    Another song dedicated to the Oakland Raider, but this time by Ice Cube. At the beginning of the song, one would hear the Autumn Wind poem before the actual rap. Songs like this do an excellent job of showing the pride Raiders fans have in their team.

    The Autumn wind is a pirate
    blustering in from sea with a
    rollicking song he sweeps along swaggering boisterously

    The autumn wind is a raider, Pillaging just for fun
    He’ll knock you ’round and upside down
    And laugh when he’s conquered and won. (laugh)

    Raider Nation Les Go Les Go
    Raider Nation Les Go Les Go
    Raider Nation, Are u ready for some football?
    U aint ready for the football!

    U aint ready for them Oakland Raiders, Its the invasion of them Oakland Raiders

    Are u ready for this football, u aint ready for this football. (ahhh)

    Here we come baby, just win baby
    Feel the storm of the cold autumn wind baby
    Its the Oakland Raiders get cha mouthpiece
    U in tha black hole with tha black beast
    This ain’t black gold, This is black silver
    Commit-Ment to excellence We deliver
    And we’ll play past regulation
    Its the invasion of the raider nation

    Raider Nation Les Go Les Go
    Raider Nation Les Go Les Go
    Raider Nation, Are u ready for some football?
    U aint ready for the football!

    U aint ready for them Oakland Raiders, Its the invasion of them Oakland Raiders

    Are u ready for this football, u aint ready for this football. (ahhh)

    The raider nation is united, when they see them pirates the fans get excited,
    The opposition get cryin’
    When i hit tha field with my eye patch and my shield

    (are u ready for some football)

    Raider nation Les Go Les Go(4x)
    Raider nation We are We are (4x)

  3. Oaktown

    This is a song you’ll hear being blasted by Raiders faithful every game day of the Raiders.

  4. The Autumn Wind

    This is not really a song, but a poem. This poem was written by Steve Sabol and attempts to paint a picture of the atmosphere of autumn weather in relation to football season. The poem is considered as the unofficial team anthem of the Raiders and can be heard at every Raiders game.

    The Autumn wind is a pirate
    Blustering in from sea
    With a rollicking song he sweeps along
    Swaggering boisterously.
    His face is weather-beaten
    He wears a hooded sash
    With a silver hat about his head
    And a bristling black mustache
    He growls as he storms the country
    A villain big and bold
    And the trees all shake and quiver and quake
    As he robs them of their gold.
    The Autumn wind is a Raider
    Pillaging just for fun
    He’ll knock you ’round and upside down
    And laugh when he’s conquered and won.
