First to use a goal horn and song

When did the goal horn come into hockey? Which team was the first to use one for a goal scored also what team was the last? Also when did using a pre made song (not a public domain organ diddy) that the fans can sing along with like Chelsea Dagger, Rock and Roll #2 etc start? Also last team to use the goal song too

I searched all over the internet for an answer, and apparently the Chicago Black Hawks first used it in Chicago Stadium in the 1973 Stanley Cup Finals. It was a Kahlenberg Marine Horn. They used it off-and-on for about a decade, before both them and the Minnesota North Stars added permanent goal horns around 1983-84, and the rest is history!

Chicago was also the first NHL team to add a permanent organ in 1929, apparently.

I think Toronto may have been the last to use a goal horn. I can remember games from the early days of the ACC where there was no horn. Then for a few years they had a goal horn that was so low it was barely audible on TV over the crowd noise, and now they have the Kings-esque one they use today.

Islanders had a siren installed for the 81 playoffs maybe earlier. it was terrifying.
Canadien (and Nords?) fans had Na Na Hey Hey as a song in the 80's.The fans actually sang this song, and it wasn't piped in as entertainment.

Maybe I'm just getting old, but I miss the days when the loud noise you'd hear after a goal was the roar of the crowd.

The Jets used a CP Rail train horn as their goal horn..the weirdest one I heard back then was Calgary's when they would score I would always hear a school bell sound..

I'm almost positive that the Colorado Rockies were the first to use "Rock and Roll Part 2" as a goal song in 1976.

I was there in the early days, and remember that very well.

The Blackhawks will the first to use on a regular basis as stated earlier, but I always wonder who was the 2nd team to use one? As sort of getting the ball rolling.

It might have been the Caps using their goal siren during the 87' playoffs.

I also heard that the North Stars might have unveiled theirs around that same time.

Buffalo debuted theirs the next season. The Rangers also had theirs around then.

The teams to last use one I think were Philadelphia, Boston, Montreal and Toronto.

Winnipeg didn't get theirs until..... 1992-93 or so?

I remember their double-OT goal vs. Edmonton in the playoffs in 1990 and I am almost certain they didn't have one then. But, I am pretty sure there was one when Teemu Selanne broke the rookie scoring record a few years later.
