Steam (band)

Steam was a pop music group best known for their 1969 #1 hit song "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye".

Fans began singing along, playing the song during sporting events gradually became a tradition and today the Steam hit is commonly heard at arenas and stadiums throughout the US.

The song was revived for the 2000 movie Remember the Titans.
