Badgers celebrate to Ke$ha's 'Die Young' in locker room

Make it 11 consecutive victories for Wisconsin over Michigan at the Kohl Center. It’s safe to say, Saturday’s triumph is the best of the bunch. Not only did the contest go to overtime, thanks to Ben Brust’s ridiculous buzzer-beater in regulation, it ended in an upset of the third-ranked Wolverines. Naturally, a win of this caliber calls for a crazy celebration.

The Badgers did their share of celebrating following the final buzzer (see photos here), but the fun also continued in the locker room. And, lucky for us, there’s footage of it. Wisconsin posted the video below on its YouTube page, and it’s terrific.

It all starts off pretty tame, with Bo Ryan talking to the team. After he tells them, “Forty-one years of doing this, I can’t remember one like this,” the Badgers, led by energetic Mike Bruesewitz, circled up for a team cheer and then erupted into a dance.

The only problem was the song of choice: Ke$ha’s “Die Young.”
