    I'm off to a 50s rock n' roll night, what about Johnny Preston's 'Running Bear'?

    Or if you know your Northern Soul, Manny Corchado - Pow-Pow?

    Apparently native Americans have been going crazy over this for a long time.

    Technically there's nothing wrong with "Chiefs". It's not a racist or derogatory term. "Redskins" however.....

    Exeter have been known informally as the Chiefs for some 100 years. The nickname was adopted because of a tradition of clubs in Devon at the time to refer to their first teams as the Chiefs but in 1999, four years after professionalism, a rebranding led to the introduction of the existing badge and mascot.

    Soul music (often referred to simply as soul) is a popular music genre that originated in the African American community throughout the United States in the 1950s and early 1960s. It combines elements of African-American gospel music, rhythm and blues and jazz. Soul music became popular for dancing and listening in the United States, where record labels such as Motown, Atlantic and Stax were influential during the Civil Rights Movement. Soul also became popular around the world, directly influencing rock music and the music of Africa.

    Are they even northern?
