Maybe it’s the MTV generation that rocked out to Dee Snider and Twisted Sister with “We’re Not Gonna Take It!” all grown up, and fed up every time we are told to put on a mask, get vaccinated repeatedly and face sticker shock at the fuel pumps when spending $50 or more a week to fuel up our ‘economy’ car, or we are reminded by Whoopi Goldberg that we are just expected to, “Suck it up!” If you remember the original MTV, with VJs like Martha Quinn, Alan Hunter and Nina Blackwood, then you are part of this generation.
Oh yeah, and we’re likely NASCAR fans, too (wink), or the parents or grandparents of kids on college campuses heard chanting at sporting events. Whatever we have, or do not have in common, there’s a new rallying cry for, “I am not happy with the way things are going…” and it’s quite simply expressed as “Let’s Go Brandon!” If you haven’t heard the phrase… where have you been?
Speaking in West Palm on Wednesday, Nov. 3, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis refers to the Biden Administration as the ‘Brandon Administration.’ As the crowd chants ‘Let’s go, Brandon,’ the governor explains his version of the origins of the phrase.
The movement began on Saturday, October 2 at Talladega Superspeedway after Brandon Brown secured his first career Xfinity Series victory when the race was called early due to darkness. As NBC Sports reporter Kelli Stavast interviewed Brown on the front stretch of the high-banked oval speedway in Lincoln, Alabama following his victory, a chant broke out from the grandstands. Yep, the same chant heard regarding the current President of the United States, the one that had been chanted quite often in the months leading up to this race, specifically during college football games at packed stadiums across the United States, the words not fit for network television.
Clearly with a producer in her earpiece, Stavast indicated to viewers that it was “Let’s go Brandon!” that was being chanted, even though the microphones picked up quite clearly what was actually being said.
“As you can hear the chants from the crowd, ‘Let’s go Brandon,’” Stavast beamed nervously. And with that, the phrase went viral.
How viral? Guys named Brandon on social media were bombarded with memes and the new slogan seemed to be popping up everywhere. Somebody even put a “Let’s go” sign on top of a road sign for Brandon, Minnesota.
From handmade signs to marquees seen at hardware stores, pharmacies and at least one high school sign, “Let’s Go Brandon” has been sweeping the nation.
In Tucson in early November motorists who found construction signage altered shared videos on social media showing the sign at North Granada Avenue and West St. Mary’s Road saying “LET’S GO BRANDON” and while it’s not clear how the message ended up on the sign, a spokesperson for the Tucson Department of Transportation said they had contacted the barricade company that owns the sign to make sure it had been changed.
You get the picture.
“Let’s Go Brandon!” made it into the music industry as Billboard released its list of best-selling songs for the week on November 8 where two of the top five songs referenced the phrase: Bryson Gray featuring Tyson James and Chandler Crump “Let’s go Brandon” and Loza Alexander’s “Let’s go Brandon.” One of them even beat out Adele’s latest single to make No. 1 on iTunes. Gray said that his song was removed from YouTube due to “medical misinformation.”
Many prefer the #LetsGoBrandon sarcastic commentary on President Biden’s disastrous presidency to the original chant, as the focus shifts from insulting Biden the person, to well-justified mockery of Biden’s catastrophic actions in office.
