Texas A&M reinforcing stadium seats due to swaying when 'Sandstorm' is played

Texas A&M is steeling Kyle Field against the anthem that has blasted in almost every stadium at some point during the game. Literally.

The south end zone stands have been reinforced with additional steel to combat the swaying that occurs when the techno song "Sandstorm" by Darude plays, according to the Houston Chronicle's Brent Zwerneman.

"It's very technical, but the particular frequency (of 'Sandstorm') was the issue," said Craig Kaufman, project manager for the architectural firm Populous, which designed the Aggies' rebuilt stadium.

A slight bounce of the structure was apparently first noticed late in 2014 during a matchup against LSU. Multiple accounts have the south end zone bouncing with the fans reaction to the song.

But the bouncing was safe, according to A&M system vice chancellor Phillip Ray, overseeing the $485-million stadium renovation.

Never fear, Aggies fans. There are no song restrictions in the new stadium. "Standstorm" can play on and fans can bounce around on eight expansion joints.

"We're good," said Ray. "There are no restrictions on this building."
