Blood, sweat and maybe a tear! Take 'em on take 'em out no fear! BEARS, BEARS, BEARS, CHICAGO!



Emisis loves the Chicago Bears, probably more than any other band, ever. To help thrust the "Monsters of the Midway" further into the season with wins and to support their charge to the Super Bowl, we have created a tribute song we want to share with the world - especially fellow Bears fans. Enjoy the "Bears Madness" and be sure to spread the word to your friends and all the fans you know ... or haters, they would love to hear this too. Bear Down Chicago Bears!
