In the next-to-last performance at home for The Best Damn Band in the Land this season, The Ohio State University Marching Band opted to play a slate of hit songs from the The Rolling Stones. In less than nine minutes, the band managed to include six classics from the world-famous rock band that released its first album in 1964.

The setlist for TBDBITL began appropriately with "Start Me Up" and also included “It’s Only Rock and Roll (But I Like It),” “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” and concluded with “Paint it Black.”

The band brought out a stage to supplement their performance with rock instruments played by TBDBITL members including two guitars, a bass guitar, keyboard, and drum set. The rendition of "You Can't Always Get What You Want" also included two solos from a flugelhorn and trumpet at the the beginning of the song.

This was TBDBITL's first halftime performance at home since the Iowa game in October, which featured a tribute to Elton John.
