Ex- Falcon Jamal Anderson's infamous jig, dubbed "The Dirty Bird," is one of the most original and memorable:

According to Complex Magazine, Anderson's dance was inspired by a move called "That 'Lo," which originated from his college crew. Complex named "The Dirty Bird" one of the NFL's most memorable end zone celebrations.

Anderson said in a 1998 press conference that "people break out and do the Dirty Bird in the strangest places," according to a previous AJC report.

In 2012, Edward Long — son of Bishop Eddie Long, who died of cancer on Sunday, Jan. 15 — was inspired by the franchise's big season to write and produce a catchy number called, "Da Dirty Bird." 

Our favorite lyrics: “I love the Falcons; they’re the hometown heroes/They fly higher than the Cardinals, Ravens, Seahawks and the Eagles/Birds of a feather, we all flock together/Have faith in the feather, we fly in any weather.”
