The Atlanta Falcons were beating the New Orleans Saints so bad that Phil Frazier put down his tuba. This was in old Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium -- Frazier doesn't remember the year, sometime in the late '80s. He and the rest of the Rebirth Brass Band -- one of New Orleans' classic second-line bands -- had been playing right there in the stands for the big group of Saints fans who traveled up for the game. But the Falcons had shut up the Saints on the field and in the crowd. All Frazier could hear were those Atlanta fans going yap, yap, yap.

Then, in the fourth quarter, the Saints came back and won.

Somebody in the Saints section started a chant, and pretty soon the whole section had joined in:

Talk that s--- now!

Talk that s--- now!

Frazier picked up his tuba and started a bass line under the chant. The other guys grabbed their horns and drums and made up their parts on the fly. The fans and the band kept it up all the way out to the parking lot.

Rebirth crafted a song out of that moment. They put it on an album and have played it live all over the world. Those four words are the title and the only lyrics. It's the perfect theme for the Saints vs. the Falcons. The words work for both sides.
