The fact that the NHL picks garbage bands as entertainment shouldn't be that much of a shocker.
Why if I remember correctly, weren't we pissed off during the night of our season opener against the Flyers this year because a clip of some garbage band that was playing in Toronto (for some HNIC thing) was being shown on our TV's instead of the inaugural CEC ceremony footage right before the game?
Are you talking about that craptastic Canadian band called Hedley? I remember they were literally so fantastically awful that I actually wikipedia'd them right after they played so I could find out if they were for real or if that was some kind of Canadian joke on Americans.
You sure you didn't mean "Vampire Weekend"? Because I think you meant Vampire Weekend.
I have no idea who that is. I'm a metal/hardcore fan so I don't know much about popular music but Arcade Fire and their fans are what I envision when I hear "Hippster" or "Trendy" or "Terrible" or well you get the point....
