Bouncing Souls no one can beat us
We drink beer and wear Adidas
Anywhere we get the itch
We're off to find a proper *****
Lace our sambas, get on out
Off we go to kick it about
Win or lose were havin fun
We won't quit until we're done
We got heart when we play
Take you on anyday
Ohhhhhh!
Ole!,Ole!,Ole!,Ole!,Ole!,Ole!
Ole!,Ole!,Ole!,Ole!,Ole!,Ole!




(spam, I know, but someone had to do it)

LOL So it's historically known that the chant started with Soccer, and started in Spain, yet the facts mean nothing to you unless the International Federation of Association Football legally owns the damn phrase? Can you get more off base?

I sorta liked it, anyway waaaaay better than "Vertigo".
many online petitions have been made in order to get this one back ....but no dice.

I think it was awesome. Last time I watched a game at Cage aux Sports in Pointe-Claire, they actually played this after every goal.

Good for them. It's really a football (soccer) song to begin with. May it be enjoyed by all boisterous (good) sports fans.

Atlanta should keep it... I'm even willing to throw in PaxPac to sweeten the deal...

Damn I hate that ****in song!

Why not bring back "La Dance des Canards"??? (BTW, what's the name of that song in English?) Even that stupid thing wasn't as annoying as that Olé crap !

It's one of the main tracks on NHL 11 too. Looks like they like us

I've seen it used elsewhere too. Maybe not as a goal song. But like a year or two ago they used it in a few Penguins games. You would think another team would not want to use it as it has become associated with the Habs (as far as the NHL is concerned), but we don't own the copyrights. If it catches on elsewhere, well then it might be time for a change.

I love how the Blackhawks in the playoffs used Ted Nugent - Stranglehold as their entrance theme. It just suited their team and was bad ass.

That wasn't his point.

They haven't copyrighted it, as it makes no sense, the Habs haven't either, as it wasn't even theirs in the first place.
If other fans feel like singing it, no one can prevent them, especially not someone who didn't come up with it in the first place.

While soccer fans may sing the song, how is it a soccer song? What does it have to do with soccer? Personally, the only time that I like it done by Canadiens fans is when they take over another teams' arena.

The first evidence of the song appeared in an article in the Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia, in the year 1982: it was during the final match of the Spanish Football League of that year. After Real Sociedad had been proclaimed champion, the people at the Anoeta stadium in San Sebastián started to sing "Campeones, campeones, hobe, hobe, hobe", which literally means "Champions, champions, we are the best", the later three words belonging to the Basque language. The chant expanded to the rest of Spain as "oé, oé, oé" and later it was misunderstood by foreigners as "olé, olé, olé", being "olé" a Spanish interjection of Arabic origin related mostly with bullfighting, but also with sports

I agree, maybe something like this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjRA7TmrYMs

at 4:18. Hate rap but this song is cool.

Are you guys for real? It "being" a football (soccer) song is IRRELEVANT. Hockey is not soccer and soccer is not hockey. The fact that it is know as the Montreal Canadiens song in the world of HOCKEY makes it cheap for another team to use it.

Let 'em have it. I have a strong dislike for that chant. I also don't like how it somehow became part of every Montreal crowd, even the non sporting ones.

I still don't get how "olé" is a soccer song. So what if it was first was used at a soccer match? If "Charge" was first used at a baseball game, does that make it a baseball chant? If "D-Fence" was first used at a basketball game, does that make it a basketball chant?

IIRC it started in Montreal in like 2001 when the DJ was playing Ole Ole Ole and the words were appearing on the giant screen and people were singing along...

Then they started to sing along after the song finished playing because the game was under way. And eventually they started singing it even when the DJ wasn't playing it
