I grew up with it being head and shin so I am happy that it is back to its original state.
OER. Calling it as it is since 2004.

Have you heard it, the new version?

BTW it isn't a "tweak" it's been completely re-recorded and it sounds terrible.

It's one word that needed changing

I have no issue with them changing the word in question

In the age of digi technology you'd think they'd be able to dub over the word skin with shin

But no; they've re-recorded entire thing, sounds nothing like the "fable" singers that did all the club songs in the late 60's, you know the song (version) that we are all used to, the one we all sing after a win and everyone says is the best in the comp

Thought the same.  Why re-do the whole thing for one word.  But they were saying on 3AW that all songs were re-recorded?  Probably the AFL to blame for this.

Wait for the final release, but remember that in the clip KB & Richo listen to a playback of the digital fix before bursting out cheering.  That playback is what we need to hear in full.  All the rest was just for the cameras ...

The one I heard was fine. I hope you're not going off the clip. That is just Richo and KB singing it.

Nope going by what I heard driving home last night

Maybe the AFL decided we needed a clash song?

Rock the Casbah would have been better, especially for when we go to Adelaide.

Let's hope so. The new version played on the radio sucked  :thumbsdown.

Every clubs new theme song revealed. No problem with ours for me, skin corrected to shin a big plus.

It's awful, actually worse than the snippet I heard previously

It lacks passion, generates zero excitement and to be blunt is boring. Our song is the best in the comp this cheapens it

The correction of one word doesn't justify completely re-recording the song and have it sound like the local "Barber Quartet" sung it and didn't give a crap

Just my take
