WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA) - The Redskins' much anticipated showdown with our neighbors to the north -- the Baltimore Ravens - is this Sunday. The Ravens are a team with a band -- but not much of a fight song.

Not the case here in Washington, where "Hail to the Redskins" has defined the team through the ages.


Take a look back at one of the strangest moments in Redskins history --- a story where the song plays THE pivotal role.

Redskins fans no doubt can sing at least PART of that song.
But most probably don't know the song could have been lost to history.

See the above video for Scott Broom's report.
