I was watching the Chicago/'Couver game tonight and I actually noticed how much I like their goal song. It's a good goal horn song if it is easy to get the crowd to chant along with it. But aside from that point I cannot stand zombie nation just because it's so overplayed. Boston and Toronto being original 6 teams need to have original goal horn songs. Detroit should bring back "Hey Hey Hockeytown". The Canadiens should bring back that song that was made for them by L'Orielle. For all the bad decisions the Rangers brass has made in its history, our goal horn is not one of them
Ducks have been using Bro Hymn since 2005-2006 i believe, but im beginning to like Chelsea dagger. Nice seeing Pennywise at our Stanley Cup Celebration back in 07. WTF is up with Carolinas though with all those cartoon clips and ric flair?
The song itself isn't terrible. It's not particularly good, but it could be worse. The problem is that it is WAYYYYYY overplayed at this point. I know the Steelers and Red Sox play it a few times at each home game, not to mention all the NHL teams that use it as a goal song.
Between Bro Hymn, Satriani's song and Zombie Nation, thats probably half the league if not more. Its lame
When I heard the Hawks goal song, I realized that if I was an opposing player playing at the United Center and hearing that song for the second or third time, it would drive me into taking some very bad penalties. It is (or would be) that annoying.
But over these playoffs, it's grown on me. It's a catchy song with a fun nature; that is, it'd be a blast to chant along with at the game.
The Flames have a good song as well. I realize not many people are Gary Glitter fans, but I've always kind of dug the synthesized version the Sharks play.
But the best one in the league is still Pennywise.
I love Chicago's goal song, and I hope they keep it. I like it when teams try something new and unique like that. Every team using "Bro Hymn," "Zombie Nation," "Crowd Chant," or "Rock & Roll Part 2" without anything else mixed into it just feels boring. Teams should get some new songs or add something to make it their own (like Phoenix with the howl and Nashville with Tim McGraw's rewrite of his own hit). Calgary using "Shot Down In Flames" is just fine with me, but superimposing the extra drums makes my ears bleed. Tampa Bay used to use "Thunderstruck" as their goal song, which I liked, but they've since changed to Gary Glitter. The Blue Jackets have a damn cannon in the building, which is really cool and I wish there was more stuff like that, that binds the team into the culture and history of the city, or, at the very least, can be related back to the club's nickname.

It was discussed here consistently and fans kept calling the radio show with Doug McLean (and later Ken Hitchcock) Suggesting it and asking about it. It got so "bad" there was one show where they started the show saying "We won't discuss the Cannon idea today." Yet fans kept calling and writing.
So if you want something unique for your team come up with an idea and run with it. I think the whole talk of a Cannon started after a game in Calgary when their flaming goal celebration started while the puck was still live causing the Jackets to quit playing and the Calgary players to then actually score. We wanted something unique and our own that we could shoot off in the middle of the play and distract the other team for a free goal
