Among the longest-running traditions in the Chicago Bears’ long history is their fight song, “Bear Down, Chicago Bears.” Here’s what we know about it.

The song, which is now played every time the Bears score at Soldier Field, was created in 1941 by composer Al Hoffman, under the pseudonym Jerry Downs.

Hoffman was born in Russia in 1902, grew up in Seattle and eventually moved to New York, where he became a composer. He also wrote “If I Knew You Were Coming I’d’ve Baked a Cake” and “Mairzy Doats,” along with several songs from Disney’s “Cinderella.”

“Bear Down, Chicago Bears” was released the year after the Bears won the 1940 NFL championship by defeating the Redskins 73-0.

Bear down, Chicago Bears, make every play clear the way to victory;

Bear down, Chicago Bears, put up a fight with a might so fearlessly.

We’ll never forget the way you thrilled the nation, with your T-formation.

Bear down, Chicago Bears, and let them know why you’re wearing the crown.

You’re the pride and joy of Illinois, Chicago Bears, bear down.

1. Hoffman’s great-nephew Josh Max claimed the song was written as a dare in a Copley News Service report.

According to Max, family legend says that Milton Drake, one of Hoffman’s collaborators, told Hoffman to prove his writing genius by coming up with a football song for a team other than New York — and selling it under a pseudonym.

Hoffman wrote the song for the Bears and sold it to them, to debut in 1941.

2. Three days before Super Bowl XX, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Chorus performed their own rendition.

With conductor Georg Solti leading the way, performers — some wearing Bears sweatshirts — led the audience in the song at three straight concerts. A recording of the performance was released on a 40th anniversary album in 1998.

3. In 2014, Billboard ranked it as the sixth-best fight song in the NFL.

The writer ranked songs for the Buccaneers, San Diego Chargers, Saints, Bills and Dolphins ahead of the Bears.

The top-10 list didn’t include the NFL’s oldest fight song, “Go! You Packers Go!” That song debuted in 1931.

4. Despite hearing it many times a season, not all Bears players can sing the song.

The Bears had 2018 players try to perform the song last September. Even with the lyrics apparently in front of them, some of them struggled to figure out the beat and the tune.

5. The song postdates the other famous “Bear Down” rallying cry, of the Arizona Wildcats.

That tradition started in 1926, when Arizona student body president, quarterback and catcher John Byrd “Button” Salmon died from his injuries in a car crash, according to the Arizona sports department website.

Before Salmon’s death, football coach J.F. “Pop” McKale visited him in the hospital, and he relayed Salmon’s message to his teammates.

“Tell the team to bear down,” he said.
