These are awful! God damn cheerleaders, just STFU ALREADY!!

The music sucks, you have to sit in designated areas.

Does anyone agree with me? They're retarded.

    Well i agree and disagree. for all years of high school i was in the symphonic band and we always played the music in the pep rally for those *occasions* so to say. i liked that part. some parts were cool others were boring so i sort of liked it overall.

      I personally think they're GREAT :D
      I'm on the football team though, so I might be a bit biased... ;)

      When I was a freshman, I was at the pep rally for the varsity team, and we didn't have to sit in any designated area. Maybe they just suck at your school.

          I liked school pep rallies. I didn't like being separated by class but I liked making as much noise as I wanted and cheering for my friends on the football team.

            I think that the disenchanted student body at the pep rally in "Fast Times At Ridgemont High" sums up my look at these things. For further explication, my article "Don't Call Me A Poser" has an explanation of why I hate pep rallies.

              Yepp I agree pep rallies are so stupid. Homecoming is even worse in my opinion. School spirit is cheesy too.

                I took my laser pointer to manditory pep rallies and spent the entire time trying to blind the quarterback with it.

                Life got better when I became a teacher's aid and didn't have to go to that crap anymore.

                  I loved 'em. All the cliques would seperate themselves out with polar attraction and repulsion. Such a great social experiment.

                  All the Type-A, jock personalities were paraded around while the angsty, greasy-haired hipsters smoked cigarettes on the hillside declaring pep rallies to be "so proletariat and pedestrian". Of course there were others, but those were the two most extreme varieties.

                  I thought they were kind of neat, just to watch everyone else. I always thought about the ending of that movie "Heathers" during them.

                    We only had one pep rally per year at my HS back in the early-mid 1990s. They had it at the end of the day like around 1:30 PM (school let out at 2:30 PM). Oh well, I never went to the pep rally anyways. I just leave....and go do my thing.

                      I hated rallies too. The worst thing was that most of my friends were in band so had nobody to hang out with. My school did bad music videos parodies and skits for entertainment besides the cheerleaders. We had separate "class" colors along with siting with our grade. Then the teachers would get mad because all the grades would insult each other. We would always have such dumb themes too like Disney.

                            Well some are alright, but if you get stuck into going into this gym with the whole middle school with this crappy rapper that repeats over and over "Don't be a fool, stay in school!" and the nurse in a mascot suit and the pep rally is about a standerdized test, then yes, it is retarded. They also had some lady come in a read a Dr. Seuss book to us during the pep rally. what the hell, we're not in preschool!

                              Eh, last pep rally I went to, I was part of

                              and when the football team huddled up to "break it down" on someone (I was on the football team then) they all went after me :p

                                I had to go to pep rallies about three times a year when I was in high school. In the fall was Homecoming, and there was also the Winter Sports and Spring Sports pep rallies. I liked dressing up in gold and blue (my high school's colors - hey, I was voted most spirited; I loved my high school, just not the students in it) and getting out of class, but the rest of it was pretty boring. Being stuffed in the gym with 2,700 other high school kids was not fun.

                                In my junior and senior years I liked the Winter Sports Assembly since I did not have to sit with the rest of the crowd and I got to be a part of the pep rally (I think that's more fun). I was on the varsity bowling team, and we got to wear our uniforms and be cheered on by everyone.

                                Also, I was in NHS, and in my senior year I got to play in the annual basketball match of NHS vs. faculty. The faculty won almost every year, and it was no exception in my year, but oh well.

                                I do not currently go to the annual pep rally at my college (it's not mandatory), and I am thankful I do not have to go as a spectator, but I would love to be a part of it if I could.

                                  I always wondered what it would be like to attend one. Back then I could care less, but as an adult I often wonder what may have happened had I played along a little better. Like most artists, I was a bad kid and found a lot of difficulty in school.
