____________________________________________

I have to be honest, all of these goal song choices are so lackluster if not horrible. All are incredibly cheesy and very disappointing. I had to vote for "Kickstart" out of sheer need, but it's like settling on Freddy Krueger to perform brain surgery on you because everyone else on the planet is dead.

Any of the following would have superior choices much more likely to fire up a crowd:

"Uprising" by Muse
"Wake Up" by Arcade Fire
"Elevation" or "Vertigo" by U2
"Swamp Thing" by The Grid
"Zombie Nation" by Kernkraft (popular already, but great)
...Almost anything by the Chemical Brothers

Come on guys...
Muse is SUUUCCCHHH a no brainer, voted for crowd chant.

Voted for Crowd Chant. I think it's the only one on there that fans would really get into.

I think when Gary Glitter got charged with having sex with minors in Thailand that song started to fall out of favor.

Personally I feel they should play some Jazz Flute after a goal is scored, just keep it classy is what I say!

Rough choices. I absolutely despise "Hell Yeah." I like the Motley Crue song but it doesn't work as a goal song how I see it. Crowd chant gets my vote.

All four finalists were pretty terrible, but I went with Crowd Chant as the "best of the worst." It's mostly crappy whereas the other three are just off the crap-charts.

It is almost like the Islanders want Crowd Chant by putting up against a bunch of rubbish.

This. I like Kickstart My Heart, but not as a goal song. Hate the other two songs. Crowd Chant it is for my vote.

Pass and Pass.

Gimme The Crue.

Satrianni didn't write "Crowd Chant"for the Wild. It was originally called "Party on the Enterprise" but he had to take samples out of it and renamed it "Crowd Chant"

Its works well for NYI, he is from,lives, and loves Long Island. Not sure what other songs would work better. Since majority of fans at the games can barely put 4 words together in a row.

I hope this ends it and all the fans who are more concerned over the goal song ...can now been concerned with the team we have
