No other band in the country has been part of a Jay-Z punchline that I know of, though. And no other college marching band had a summer as cool as The Pride of the Sunshine's, surely: Their visit to London to perform as part of the 2012 Olympics is chronicled in this very cool video from Steve Johnson:
