Holiday was just horrible. Your team just scored, what are you ramping up for? The face-off?
Agreed with every little bit of this post.

Walking away from the game on Wednesday numerous people were quietly singing/humming/whistling " bang bang bang" "vamanos vamanos". Even caught myself doing it later on the ride home.

Also, The Pretender - Foo Fighters, would be a good intro song if I do say so myself.

I like the atmospheric elements of the U2 opener, and would hate to have that completely replaced with pure andrenaline-pumpers. Those should be for the goal songs

If I were the DJ and had complete freedom to be ****ed up about my choices and not worry about the crowd:

Intro (the full thing would play as people are getting to their seats, and the visuals/players would come out at some point in the middle of it):

Goal Song: (0 to 0:34-- cut it off at "alright!")

I don't understand when people say the lyrics in 'The Streets Have No Name' are bad for a Canucks intro. There are no words/lyrics in the intro.

I've always thought that 'session' by Linkin Park would make an excellent intro/intro video.

Awesome anticipation in that song and it could work.. unfortunately it's lacking any "breakthrough" part to it to get every jacked.

I still think Howl by the Gaslight Anthem is a perfect goal song, they could loop the chorus. It would be kind of similar to the old Ole goal song by the Bouncing Souls.

the canucks are expending wayyyy too much energy trying to come up with the right song. their latest attempt at finding a song is the lamest attempt of them all.

here's a novel idea...who gives an eff what the fans think?

the only people who should have any say in what gets them motivated to play are the players. poll all 23 players and then use what the players vote on. simple.

MLB players get to choose what song plays when they step up to the plate, so canucks players should have a say about what they skate out to. you're never gonna please everybody, so please, let's just move on! this is approaching the same level as jersey arguments.

end rant.

The beginning certainly has that war like atmosphere & having something heavy is great to help with that build up & unveiling of the players onto the ice.

I also think a party-ish song is not the right choice for an entrance. A party-ish song should be the goal song... you know the celebration (what a party is). While an entrance should build emotion to pump people up.
Well I kinda agree but don't agree that One is that. It's just too dark, even without the lyrics. Also it's used a lot in events everywhere (in NHL games during breaks or even fights) so that's another reason why it won't be picked.

Not sure if party-ish was the right word, but what I meant by that is something easier to listen to and easier to get pumped than something like One that is heavy and dark. Basically, an entrance song needs to bit more atmosphere-music than music-music.

Something new never hurts It's similar but still a bit different, especially that song I linked. ACDC is usually slower tempo.

It's gotta be the Chicago Bulls intro...put more emphasis on the bass, pump the blue and green lights all over the arena, do an NBA like intro for the starting lineup.

As soon as this song came out I thought it would be a good one:

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

Or this

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hez6tDpiWDA

Whatever the new one is, I think we need a change of pace from streets. The new one should be less about causing goosebumps and more focused on sending the opponent through the glass.

I honestly have no problem with the intro video and the song itself... The only thing I don't like is that he changed U2. The intro video is fine as it is, but the song needs to go back to U2.. As well, bring back Holiday... I've given our current one a chance and I still don't like it since they brought it in..


Honestly, I don't want to hear "bang bang bang bang... VOMIT MOOSE VOMIT MOOSE"....




i kid i kid I know its vamanos vamanos

how about giving the sound guy freedom to play whatever he wants. they did for the organ grinder for years.

that not only works for minor league games but its how you find songs like sweet caroline and who let the dogs out.

but again, why can't we showcase local talent? Thanks to Bruce Botnik and David Foster we've had tons of it over the years which made even Seattle jealous until grunge became popular (for some stupid reason).

Trooper is from Vancouver and I've hear their song at NBA games now.

heck, I met Loverboy's drummer at a Canucks game back in '88 (and did he ever look burnt out). Wonder what he thinks of all that bang bang bang?

I think "Here Come the China Boys" by the Payolas would be perfect.

I just think this song should be used for the intro VIDEO with some cool scenes. Please ignore what it's from. The beat I think would be awesome. Zombo if you find it worthy, you could edit it in to their intro vid, would be awesome to see.

from 0:00 to around 2:20



or
I'm just a nerd for this:

Hopefully this keeps up

So the Canucks have a voting page up. http://canucks.nhl.com/club/news.htm...id=DL|VAN|home

Personally voted for Japandroids since they're a great band and also local. (I will weep if Nickelback wins.)

don't know what to say about that poll... GnR and Nickelback shouldn't be on that list, both those songs are overplayed as hell (and seriously, Nickelback?!?!). I love Japandroids and Static in the Stars but I don't like them as an intro for a hockey game. As for DJ meg... well... call me old fashioned but skating out to that doesn't seem very fun...


Thought the lesser of all evil choices was Volbeat. It at least has a nice guitar hook to get you going


Would've been nice to see a band with some over the top riffs like Muse or The Black Keys get some love. I feel like the song should get people amped, not chill them out (like the softer indie options on the list would make me do)

As someone mentioned in the other thread, they can always do a heavier remix of the Japandroids song. It's been done before.
