Honestly, does anyone actually get ANYTHING out of this opening song any more?

arguably the worst opening in the league from the ones i've seen in person/on TV

does the song instil anything but the vibe of "we are scared, unsure, pussies?"

if the team wasn't soft enough already we have Bono serenading our opponent doing anything but pumping up the team/crowd

GET RID OF U2!

Are you kidding? I fricken LOVE the opening. IMO it is the best opening song in the entire NHL.




If this doesn't give you goosebumps then I don't know what will.

No entrance song in the entire NHL gets me fricken pumped like this one does. Just listening to it now gets me jacked! GO CANUCKS GO!!! :towel:

I am a big U2 fan and even I think a song that has a first line of "I want to run, I want to hide" probably isn't the best for instilling fear into our opponents.

By the way learn how to spell SHIRIKOV who is this shirakov


Amazingly on his first shift Kassian would have had a breakaway if Kesler knew how to pass. And he still got switched with Weiss. And note it is "Weiss" not "Wise".

I do kind of get goosebumps when I hear it and watch the guys come out of the tunnel. That being said, get rid of it. I'm tired of the soft image they portray.

Disagree completely, our opening in the best in the NHL IMO.

How does this not give you chills and get you ready to go?



I'm excited just listening to the beat startup, our intro video (that we show on the jumbotron) transitions into it perfectly too, it fits this era of the Canucks perfectly, don't want it to change.

I'd like them to use an ozzy song. Mostly my own bias as I love the ozz man. But I think let me hear you scream as they entered the arena would be pretty sweet

I haven't seen another intro in this league that puts shivers down my spine like ours does. Scrap it when this era of the team is over and gone, but for now, it better not go anywhere.

haha I doubt that Acquilini picked this song because he wants to keep it holy. I don't care what his reasons are either way (I'm not even sure he's the one who gets to pick the song...) because I personally like this intro, I'd go as far as saying I like it very much.

DON'T. YOU. DARE.

It is the best fricken opening in the entire NHL. Why the hell would we change it? Can we not actually have tradition around here? We can't even go a year without changing our fricken goal song or our fricken jerseys and now we're going to change the fricken intro song? Jesus Christ this pisses me off. Do we all have fricken ADD? Can we not actually stick with something for once?

we should use whiskey in the jar - metalica, or big balls by ACDC

I gotta say, our goal song is underwhelming. I liked the one we were using a few years ago before this vamanos one or w/e it is.

hell no. The U2 entrance in the playoffs with the towels is nothing short of magic. In fact, during the 2009 playoffs, the team did use some other song, and guess what? It was lame and they switched back the next year

some people may think the U2 song is becoming depressing for them as time goes...

there's only one song I'd like for them to use if ever they would change it...

Yeah a classic for CBC, Don looked pretty good too!

I agree, loved to old one, although Holiday was one of my favorite songs when it came out so I am a bit biased.

It's pretty sick after watching the really upbeat intro video on the big screen when you're at a game. Transitions perfectly as people have said...the power of the bass they use there really does give you goosebumps when it starts up.

@ DJ Dave,

If it matters at all, here's one Canucks fan who likes the intro just the way it is. Best one in the league IMO. I'm not a U2 fan, but in that setting and the absolutely seamless transition from the intro video on the jumbotron to Streets With No Name... can't beat it. I have the "Entrance & Anthems" clips from the home games of the 2011 playoff run saved to my computer from the CanucksHD Youtube channel I like it so much.
