Help us find the Whoa oh song!

Help me find this song! My wife and I have been trying to find a song we keep hearing in commercials and in Football stadiums, but can't figure out what it is. The main part of the song is a chorus singing "Whoa oh, whoa oh ohhh oh, woah oh ohhh oh, woah oh".

My wife thinks there might be other words in the song too, but most of it is what's written there. We've heard in commercials recently, but can't remember which ones. We've also heard it being played at NFL Football stadium on TV usually as the broadcast is going to commercial. It's driving us crazy!

I changed my mind, now I think it's Some Nights by Fun.

If it's older (shaddup, I'm not ancient), I'm gonna suggest Baltimora - Tarzan Boy.

I agree that it's Some Nights. But they have sampled the woah ohs from Cecilia by Simon and Garfunkel.

Bugged me for a while when I first heard it because it sounded so familiar.

Emyd, that's it! We've been trying to figure this out forever. My wife's going to ecstatic!

Poxandplague, I can't believe I hadn't realized that it sampled from Cecilia. I love Simon and Garfunkel, so you would think I would have picked up on that earlier.

Thanks Metafilter! Four minutes from question to answer - that's impressive!
