‘Sandstorm’ frequency leads to Kyle Field construction


On the long list of songs that need to never be played at any sporting event ever again, “Sandstorm” should be somewhere towards the top of everyone’s list.

And new findings showing that it can alter the stands at a football stadium should give you all the more reason to want it banned.

The Houston Chronicle is reporting that the frequency of the techno mainstay was responsible for moving the newly renovated south end zone seating at Kyle Field. Now, new reinforced steel rods have been placed under the seats to keep such an instance for reoccuring.

The song is bad enough. It’s way over-played–and if you are like this writer who won’t touch electronic music with a ten-foot pole, the early 2000s hit sends you into fits of rage. Now it’s a safety hazard? Good grief.

Supposedly Kyle Field is already prone to movement, to the point where there is reportedly a written warning in the media seating area stating that press box tends to move during the “Aggie War Hymn.”

Plus anyone who has been to any kind of college football game knows that a level of earthquake-like activity is likely to hit once half the stadium starts jumping up and down.

But if the sheer frequency of one song is going to rack up the construction bill, maybe it’s finally time to retire it from the playlist for good.
