Gimme Steam: The band Nancy Faust made a permanent part of the sports lexicon.
1969 — A little-known studio musical group came out with an oddly-named song. On this date, it broke into the Billboard Top 100 chart and would eventually move all the way to No. 1. The group was called Steam; the song, “Na Na Hey Hey (Kiss Him Goodbye)”. Thanks to the efforts of White Sox organist Nancy Faust in 1977, it would become the song Sox fans used to “serenade” pitchers being removed from games.
Today, you can hear it practically at every stadium in America … but it started on the South Side!
