It is simply terrible. Just play "I Love LA" by Randy Newman. That is all.

Awful. This is all we need...



WE LOVE IT!

Edit: The baby eater beat me to it

Someone needs to write the Kings organization a letter, this is embarrassing.

that is horrible. stop trying to re-invent the wheel folks

this will rank right up there with the silly castle wall they had outside the locker room so they could show it as they emerged from the room to 'protect the castle'

enough with the trendy bs

they should have never changed it from "I Love L.A.".

I don't like the briggs song either, I cringe everytime I hear it.

and speaking of old Kings songs does anybody remember when they used a short metal rift with Go Kings Go as the lyrics, before each game (early 200's) I thought it was pretty good short song to start the game.

you are my sunshine
my only sunshine
you make me happy
when skies are grey
you'll never know dear
how much I love you
please don't take my sunshine away

(OK, now that we know where they got THAT piece of crap, let's all sing it together...)

you are my sunshine
my only sunshine
you make me happy
when skies are grey
you'll never know dear
how much I love you
please don't take my sunshine away

(in fact, if they TRY to make you sing along with that horrifying Los Angeles version, just sing the above, cite copyright infringement, and let it die a horrible painful death.)

As much as I hate the Briggs I must say that I'm pretty sure they've fired the music director at Staples. I remember complaining with many of you over the past 3 or 4 seasons about how bad the music before, after, and during the breaks but lately it's been much more to my liking.

They play "Spirit in Black" by Slayer almost every game. Lot's of old metallica and stuff too but overall it has improved dramatically.

i like it. LA is littered with passionate sports fans and i think this song does a good job of capturing that. ive also been a fan of european football as long as ive been a kings fan, ive always thought a celebratory chant would be a lot of fun. it would be great if kings fans visiting hp pavillion or honda center could take over and sing that!

"in any weather"??...
in early production meeting: "well, it has to rhyme with 'forever' - and use it throughout the entire song. Don't ever change. 'Weather' it is, ok?"



wow, that song sucks.

what I miss is the goal siren from the Forum. I wish they still used that at Staples.

Many years ago, when an ambulance or cop siren went by, my friends and I would say: "he shoots, he scores!!! Bernie Nichols put it from the top of the circle..." (or use any player's name)

Wow that first thing is just chock full o dbag.

But so is I love L.A. too.

Do the regular anthem. Do it professionally and in a very timely manner.

We all just want it to happen so the game can start.

After a goal whatever. Do the I love LA song bang a gong play donkey kong smoke a bong pluck out your thong sing any old song can't we all just get along but for the rest of it just get it over and get to playing hockey.

Its all just nonsense.

And before you say it I know my crotchety is showing.

Sounds like a chant I would hear at an football match in England, only not as cool.
