INFORMATION ABOUT THIS PANCOCOJAMS COLLECTION OF STOMP & SHAKE CHEERS
This pancocojams collection of stomp & shake cheers documents some stomp & shake cheers for folkloric and recreational purposes.

This collection isn't meant to be a comprehensive compilation of these types of cheers.

All the stomp & shake cheer examples that are given in this collection were retrieved from YouTube videos. The text (words) of these cheers were either provided by the YouTube video's publisher, or were retrieved from a comment in a video's discussion thread, or were transcribed by me from that video.

I began this collection in July 2017 and have periodically added to it by surfing YouTube videos. In addition to the words for these featured cheers, this collection includes videos of some of these cheers, and a limited number of comments from some of those videos' discussion threads.

There are many more stomp & shake cheers that I'd LOVE to add to this compilation, but unfortunately I can't find their words online or I can't understood what is chanted in their videos.

The titles used below for these cheers may not be the only titles that have been used in the past or are now used for these cheers. Also, the words for these cheers may not be the original words, or what were considered the definitive words for that cheer or what are now considered the definitive words for that cheer.

When no title for a cheer is given, I’ve chosen a title for that cheer and sometimes I placed an asterisk next to the title to indicate the fact that this title is my guess.

Readers shouldn't assume that the cheerleading squad who perform these cheers in these video composed those cheers and were the original choreographers of those cheers' movements. A lot of high school and younger cheerleading squads "borrow" from other squads, particularly from some highly regarded university squads.

However, stomp & shake cheerleader squads prize originality and creativity and really disapprove of squads that only copy other school's/university's words and movements.

If your squad uses these cheers, in addition to substituting your high school's name/mascot or your competitor's high school name/mascot, try changing some of the words and some of the movements that your squad performs.

****
Additions and corrections to these cheer examples and the words to these cheers are welcome.

Please add to this compilation for folkloric purposes by sharing words to stomp & shake cheers and/or sharing links to stomp & shake YouTube videos videos in the comment section below. Thanks!

Featured video: WSSU Cheerleaders Getting’ Crunk



ORIGINALCHEERPHI,Published on Feb 22, 2008

WSSU CHEERLEADERS SHOWING U HOW IT SHOULD BE DONE AT THE ULTIMATE CHEER & DANCE EXPERIENCE TRIAD HIGH SCHOOL CHEERLEADING COMPETITION 2007
-snip-
The title for this cheer might be "Fight The Power". It is the second cheer that is performed in that video.

"CheerPhi" used to be the name of Winton-Salem State University (WSSU)'s cheerleading squad. I believe that university now uses the names "Red team" and "White team" for its cheerleading squads. That university's mascot is the ram.

The word "original" denotes the video publisher's belief that WSSU was the originator of stomp & shake cheerleading. From my online research, I agree that WSSU was the originator of their style of stomp & shake cheerleading (movements), a style that many stomp & shake cheerleaders try to imitate, but a style that is somewhat different from Virginia State University's Woo woos, another Historically Black College & University (HBCU) cheerleading squad that my research suggests is also a stomp & shake cheerleading originator.

SET IT OFF [WSSU Band Chant]
Pancocojams Editor's note: The verse below isn't a stomp & shake cheer, but is instead something that the band (and that university's fans) chant while the cheerleaders and majorette dancers perform. Nevertheless, I found two videos of Winston-Salem State University's (WSSU) cheerleaders performing to this instrumental composition, and decided to add that chant and also add a video and a video link as examples of how stomp & shake cheerleaders don't always cheer, but sometimes just move (dance, or tumble, or do stunts) to instrumental music.

Hannah Jones, 2015
"what is their chant that they say for this song"

jasmine harris, 2015
@hannah jones the words are "we're the red sea and we gonna punish you... You don't want it with this band when we're in front of you we set this thing off!" I learned it last month when I played with them!
-snip-
"We" in this chant is Winston-Salem State University's band and not their cheerleaders.

Here's one video of WSSU's band, their majorette dancers, their fans, and their cheerleaders performing to "Set It Off" and at the end of their dancing, the cheerleaders doing their signature "eeeyup!" yelp:

COMMENT ABOUT "SET IT OFF" [WSSU Basketball cheer] [text revised jULY 4, 2017]
Pancocojams Editor's note:
A comment in the discussion thread for St. Augustine University cheer "It's About To Go Down" indicates that that cheer is copied from a 1994 Winston- Salem State University cheer basketball cheer entitled "Set It Off:

Here's that comment:
CheerPhi93, 2013 [in the discussion thread for https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1Fszc4_seI Saint Augustine's University 2009 Bluechips Cheerleaders- "Its About to Go Down"
"Can you say that is nothing but WSSU "Set it up lets Go SU" basketball chant...Yes it is original for it was made up in 1994..I was there when it was made up! THE END! #dooces!"
-snip-
"It" in the comment is the cheer "Its About to Go Down"

Regretfully, I can't understand the words to St. Augustine's "It's About To Go Down" cheer, and I can't the words online. If you know the words to this cheer, please add it to this compilation for the folkloric record. Thanks!

I also haven't found any words to WSSU's basketball cheer "Set It Off"
-snip-
Here are two definitions of "set it off" from https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=set%20it%20off
Set it off
"to do something major, either something that can cause a huge disturbance or significance."

**
"set it off
"To do something with intensity or hurricane like force."

You shake like this,
You move like this.
But in the end

-Howard University [Washington D.C.] Bison Cheerleaders' Battle Cheer

[The first line of this very widely used Stomp & Shake cheer may be given as "come to us" -as per a transcription in that video's discussion thread by Keana Mayberry, 2013 and exeria poole, 2013. However, Derein Rogers, 2014 writes that the first line is "step to us".]

-snip-
I believe that the African American Vernacular English (AAVE) pronunciation and spelling that is used in this (and many other) stomp & shake cheers is an example of code switching on purpose from standard American English to AAVE to evoke and reinforce toughness, self-confidence, and "for realness" -all of which nowadays might be called "street cred".

TAKE IT ALL THE WAY (added November 23, 2020]

[The lead cheerleader says something in a bass voice -  “VSU” [??]. In a voice that isn't base the lead cheerleader announces the cheer by doing movements while chanting “Take it all the way. Fight Fight Fight” ]

The vocalization given here as "AYE!" is quite common in a number of stomp & shake cheer discussion threads. It's usually spelled with multiple "e's" to indicate that the sound is extended.

WE ARE THE BEARS [added July 1, 2017)
We are the Bears - Morgan State Cheerleaders - Celebrating Victory



B. T. Gibson, Published on Sep 23, 2014

Morgan State's "We are the Bears" campaign originated in an attempt to solicit more school spirit by President David Wilson and others. Mr. Melvin Miles, MSU Marching Band Director, was instrumental in the video that was eventually posted on YouTube about two years ago. That video included several flavors of the Morgan Community showing how they love being a Bear. The choreography was created so almost anyone could join in….and when this song is played…..they do….each adding their own flavor! "Feel the Roar".

Here's words to this song/cheer from a Morgan State University Facebook page:

I changed the format from paragraph form to lyrics form using the commas to indicate where the next line would be.

"Aye!" appears to be a widely used exclamation (among African Americans). It is pronounced like the elongated word "I" ("eye") and basically means the same thing as "Yeah!"

[Added October 24, 2018]
"Ayeeee", a rather widely used exclamation (among African Americans), "ayeee" sounds like an elongated "a" in the word "say"."Ayee" also rhymes with the English words "hay", "hey" and "yeah". That exclamation basically has the same meaning as "Yeah" (and "hey" could also be used in place of "Yeah!" to show excitement and support.

WSSU Cheerleaders Gettin Crunk [video given with the "Say It In Our Face" cheer entry in this post.]
-snip-
"Crunk" is an African American slang term which may have been derived from the two words "crazy and drunk". In some contexts, "getting crunk" may just mean to be very energetic, to be "pumped up", " to be hyped". However, I believe that in the context of this stomp & shake cheer, "get crunk" also means "to be 'hard"; "gangsta"; "street" - meaning to use African American stances, gestures, and words to emphasize the confrontational nature of that particular cheer routine.

"Don't start no stuff/ won't be no stuff" is a familiar saying among certain populations of African Americans. It serves as a warning that people shouldn't try to start trouble unless they are prepared to deal with the consequences of their words and actions.

Here's a comment from this video's uploader in that video's discussion thread:

"I Coached in 2003 and remember when the cheer was made up...It has been revised..and never never ever ever...Did it say Cowboys...lol...it's When you are messing with the Rams you are bound to get Krushed...

Great Job Cheer Phi

I've seen other videos of this cheer battle in which the cheerleaders change the ending to "You bout to get....what, what, what, WHAT!" [That line is spoken in a taunting, aggressive manner with aggressive body motions as done in the WSSU video.]

YOUR MOVES ARE WACK* [added October 24, 2018]
"your moves are whack* get them off my track you can't be a jag** cause you look like that"
- transcribed by Dayshav ft. Fvat v Fox, 2017 from the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ye8WmgyWuCI "Blade vs. Flowers Battle Part 2"
-snip-
*The commenter misspelled "wack" as "whack". "Wack" means "crazy", "stupid", "worthless", "uncool" etc.

**"Jag" is an abbreviation of the team name "Jaguar". The commenter misheard this name as "jets". I corrected that abbreviation in that transcription.
