"Let's Go Flyers" Chant

Consider this a Public Service Announcment and a pet peeve rolled into one. I'm also curious how many of you were aware of this/were guilty of it.

I just can't take it anymore. After attending the game last night, I just snapped haha. YOU ARE ALL DOING THE "LET'S GO FLYERS" CHANT WRONG! I don't know how it is possible because the organ PLAYS the tune for everyone, yet people are incapable of replicating it.

In the proper chant the 1st, 2nd, and 4th notes are the same. So if "1" were one particular note, "2" were a different (lower) note. It would be Let's(1) - Go(1) - Fly(2) - ers(1).

What everyone actually DOES is the 1st and 3rd notes being the same, and the 2nd and 4th notes being the same. Let's(1) - Go(2) - Fly(1) - ers(2).

Please see the YT vids for reference. The first is the wrong one, and the second is correct.





Tell your friends! How many of you knew this? How many of you were wrong?

I was at a game last year (I think against Buffalo early in the season) and some woman started freaking out on people in our section over this same topic. She stood up and screamed, repeatedly, "STOP DOING THE RANGERS CHANT!!! THAT'S THE RANGERS CHANT *******S!!!1 RANGERS! RANGERS!! BRAAAHHHHHWW!!!!!"

Are you that woman? If so, please apologize to your son as he was noticeably embarrassed.

Yes, yes I am whining about this. How hard is it to follow directions? haha. Wouldn't you find it stupid if people started singing Fly Eagles Fly to some other melody? This is a far lesser example of the same thing.

I'm a fan of my team and our traditions. I'd like us to have a chant that is our own, rather than a generic thing. Well we do have one, but people don't do it.

It's been stated before and nothing will be done about it. How many people do you think really get to go to every game? How many people from HF make up what percentage of the arena on any given night? It has been and will be unless the stadium itself corrects it. And to be honest does it really matter? They are saying Let's Go Flyers it gets the job done either way.

Oh I understand. Just wanted to see if anyone else was aware as well. I don't recall seeing it in the years I've been here.

I'm with DU on this.

It's actually embarrassing for a fanbase to pride itself on being knowledgeable, passionate, and dedicated to the history of this franchise, and yet so consistently screw up something as simple as a rally chant.

Learn the chant, learn who Barry Ashbee is, and quit pretending to be a Flyers fan, and just be a Flyers fan for Chris' sakes. It's not that difficult.

I'm also fascinated at how the correct chant vanished from public consciousness.

(I'm guessing it's because the average fan at a game now drives in from Haddonfield).

While I never dissected it, I too have been annoyed... for years in fact... I actually have heard many incarnations of it as it has been butchered in various ways, and even the most used version has morphed over time.

But it is often more than mere notes; it is at times tempo and almost always speed... The Chant is stared by many different fans in many different sections -- mostly in the Mezzanine I'd guess -- and at times there are competing chants starting seconds apart ((OUCH))... The fans starting it do it unplanned and too often in a rush... Even if it is stared correctly, it is not picked up correctly... People are just so into the game and hyped up and quite frankly oblivious to HOW it is done as they concentrate on WHAT is being said and on he team play.

I believe even the proper chant actually has morphed so much that at times I have to think hard to remember the early original correct one as the wrong one(s) echo in my mind.

Yes, they should follow the organ -- and maybe the organ should slow it down a tad also -- but I don't see that happening... and I don't see the days returning where the entire Barn chants in unison in the proper manner... And I don't believe we will ever hear every fan in attendance chimes in. The closest I think is in big Postseason or key games when it is started BEFORE the game and is loud and more true.

By all the ice ads it is clear that that is a later day one... I believe it originally was slower... with the emphases more on the chant and less on the ending claps.

But yes; much better.
