“I actually love ‘Fight Song.’ It represents how Hillary Clinton will never give up, and she will do everything she can to make sure families get ahead and stay ahead,” Christopher Huntley, the campaign’s director of millennial media, told Yahoo News.

“For me, ‘Fight Song’ is a reminder of what’s at stake in this election. The fight for immigration reform, the protection of black lives, environmental justice and the continued fight for reproductive justice. We can’t afford to give up — the stakes are too high,” Sarah Audelo, Clinton's millennial vote director, added.

The 2015 hit by Rachel Platten was adopted by the campaign and made into a remix of notable actors, musicians and Clinton supporters singing it line by line.

" 'Fight Song’ is an anthem. ‘Fight Song’ is a way of f---ing life," one staffer told Yahoo. “It un-ironically brings me joy.”

Many Clinton supporters and opponents, however, have bashed the song.

“I hate ‘Fight Song.’ It’s one of the worst songs ever released,” said Los Angeles Times music writer Gerrick Kennedy. “It’s schmaltzy, forgettable.”

Yahoo News also noted that the Daily Beast’s Olivia Nuzzi joked that listening to the song made her want to join the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

“I would rather be strapped to a chair and forced to listen to 'Tiny Dancer' on a loop for 9 hours than hear Fight Song one more time,” she wrote.

“If I hear 'Fight Song' one more time I am joining ISIS.”

Some Clinton staffers have favorited the anti-"Fight Song" tweets from other media personalities, the report added.

Out of almost 2 million views on YouTube, the Democratic National Committee's remix currently has 32,000 dislikes and 31,000 likes.
