Actually, "winning songs" are pretty common - especially in baseball. The Cubs and Red Sox play specific songs after wins and there are probably a few other teams that do as well.

Anyway, to the original point, Sweet Caroline is associated with the Rangers now for alot of people, so it's probably here to stay.

danno...

I guess I don't wait for the Bosox to win a game to actually hear the song. In 93-94, I don't recall a Rangers victory song - anyone help out here?

Sweet Caroline is a Red Sox thing and since baseball is bigger than hockey, it will never be considered a Ranger's song. That's just how it is.

Is it so hard for a fanbase to adopt its own signature song that people will recognize and sing along to, yet hasn't been claimed by countless other teams (Sweet Caroline) or every adolescent girl in the country (Don't Stop Believing)?

So to Rangers fans or hockey fans who couldn't give a damn about baseball and/or the Red Sox, it's not supposed to remind them of the Rangers? Makes plenty of sense.

Actually, I was at MSG, and they played Sweet Caroline and you can hear it from the MSG entrance.

Once the game ended the Rangers victory song played. Maybe Sweet Caroline played after but Victory Song > Annoying Neil Diamond Crap

The Rangers victory song is always played after wins. Then they play "Love Generation" during the stick salute and Sweet Caroline after the game. Unless they are up like 5-0 with 4 minutes left.
