Footage of the performance has been recirculating this year, and it's perhaps no surprise given the bombastic of the track and the high-octane staging – which saw a number of aerialists fly into the stadium twirling in huge strips of material.
Since then, the band seems to have had a connection with American sports fans – and now ‘Higher’ seems to have become an unofficial anthem, much like ‘Sweet Caroline’ by Neil Diamond has done for the England football team in recent times.
It was clear just how much the song has been embraced by crowds when Texas Rangers fans sang the track with the help of a huge karaoke screen during a baseball game this year.
It’s not just fans who have made the song popular again, either.
After the Texas Rangers made the tune their theme song this year, the players belted it out in the dressing room after claiming the World Series too.
However, the first person to really get the song circulating again was TikTok user @maceahwindu, who brought us a brilliant version of the tune.
As another sign of the song making an impact in the world of sport, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Josh Dobbs replied to a clip of @maceahwindu mixed with highlights of the Vikings’s overtime win against the Atlanta Falcons, writing: “I wish I could hit that note.”
It's here to stay, so expect to hear 'Higher' more and more in the sporting world and beyond.
