The theme song most closely associated with the Oakland Raiders is “The Autumn Wind.” While an unofficial anthem, it is considered the team’s battle hymn, and it can be heard over the loudspeakers at home games.
The song known as “The Autumn Wind” was first a poem written by former NFL Films president Steve Sabol. The song, narrated in a spoken-word fashion by John Facenda, first came to be associated with the Oakland Raiders in 1974. While it was not expressly written for the Raiders, the song has been synonymous with the football team throughout the years. The song can be found on the official NFL Films LP, “The Power & The Glory.”
