Atlanta Braves/Braves Home-Run Song

That rally song is a early hip-hop tune called "Apache" by the Sugarhill Gang (same people who did "Rapper's Delight").

The refrain:

"Apache! Jump on it!

Jump on it!

The song is from Sugar Hill Gang's remix of "Apache" by Lordan.

I believe the song is the intro to "Apache" by The Sugarhill Gang

The Atlanta Braves have 2 different Homerun Songs.

(1) Instrumental of "Apache-Jump On It" by The Sugar Hill Gang.

The other is...

(2) "Gone".  I have no idea who it's by, but I definitely know the lyrics, because I am a huge Braves fan...In my mind I feel like you gotta be talkin' bout this song.


Gone like a freight train, Gone Like Yesterday...

Gone like a soldier in the civil war, bang-bang!

Gone like a '59 all the good thangs, it ain't eva comin' back!

She's gone (gone), gone (gone), gone (gone), etc...


Hope this at least helps!

I think this specific song is based on the song Apache by The Sugarhill Gang if that's helpful. I don't know the exact song though.

The name of the song is Apache and it's by the Sugarhill Gang....the song at the braves game comes off of the real thing

I LOVE that Sugar Hill Gang song! I sing it whenever I hit a home run with the Braves on MLB The Show!

I know it`s pretty cliche, but I`m pretty well-rounded when it comes to the Braves, but I would say I`m an expert on Atlanta`s teams of the 90`s. I specialize specifically on the playoffs, however, especially in the earlier years (i.e. `91, `92, `95). Also, for some reason, I tend to remember even the smallest trades and signings the Braves pulled off, so you could say I`m an expert in the trading field. :)


I have followed Braves baseball for the better half of the last 15 years, so I like to think I have a great understanding of the organization's history and seemingly its future.
