I don't see how Hero gets anybody fired up compared to most of these songs. Is it because the song's name is Hero?
It is got a good baseline plus the lyrics are rather appropriate:
Hate him or love him
For the same reason [Fresh]
Can't leave it
The games needs him
Plus the people need someone to believe in [Yes]
So in God's Son we trust
'Cause they know I'm gonna give 'em what they want
They looking for . . . a hero
I guess that makes me . . . a hero
