At Logs concerts, the song is often preceded by Arise, oh Sons of MIT, a short song with a very lyrical melody. The two pieces are sung together with only a tempo change to separate them, so it is unclear if they are one song or two.

Arise, oh Sons of MIT begins as follows: Arise oh sons of MIT, In loyal brotherhood, the future... (There are one or two more lines but I can't remember them at the moment.)

I found the full song, it is now noded at Arise all Sons of MIT, minus the comments on the Logs way of performing it.

The logs then segue into Take Me Back to Tech, which has a faster, more staccato, rhythm.
