Wisc. Teens on Parade: You Can’t Scare Them.

Marching in the Rose Bowl Parade on New Year’s Day, the Pulaski High School “Red Raiders” Marching Band, honoring their home-state University of Wisconsin Badgers. They proceed smartly through the streets of Pasadena, California, playing “On Wisconsin.” Then they stop in front of the reviewing stand—apparently an unplanned stop, as the announcers seem surprised—and while marching in place, play a round of a newer state anthem. It starts at 1:09. See if you recognize the song. (Answer after the jump.)

Answer: Union Maid.

“Oh, you can’t scare me — I’m stickin’ with the union,

“I’m stickin’ with the union — ‘til the day I die”
