Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith ended their June 4th concert in Columbus, Ohio on a pretty bad (albeit hilarious) note, singing the fight song for the fans' biggest rival as they left the stage.

He wasn't singing one of their many hit songs, he went a completely different direction and started singing "Hail to the Victors," infuriating the crowd.

For those that don't know, "Hail to the Victors" is the fight song for the University of Michigan. It's probably the least popular song ever, in the city of Columbus, Michigan, home of The Ohio State University.

The atmosphere immediately changed from thousands of screaming fans to a room full of boos and cat calls.

Still, hilarious move by Smith, and great support for his team.
