Only had 5mins to put this together, so horribly edited with horrible sound (didn't want the original U2 to interfere with the music, but it still does a little) but you get the idea.

And for the record, I'm for keeping the U2. And yes, I realise this might not be everyone's favourite genre, but meh. I'm prepared for a lot of criticism :)

I don't like the U2 intro, but whatever that was lastnight, you reached an alltime low. That was awefull.

Use something with some energy, something heavy. Metallica, Motorhead, or anything but that crap we heard lastnight.


No doubt. It was almost like some perverse attempt to validate the use of the U2 song long past it's best before date by playing something even less appropriate/more horrible.

Dear Canuck organization,

This is not rocket dentistry. Pick just about any harder rock/metal song that has a aura of aggression and "pump up" to it. Anything in that vein will be a vast improvement over either of these two choices you have made.

It's not difficult. Twenty nine other NHL teams have figured it out. Countless other sports franchises and leagues spanning multitudes of varying sports have figured it out. FIGURE IT OUT.

The "energy" of the music isn't far off but I'm still of the opinion it's to "friendly"/feline.

I'm sorry but skate out music shouldn't be "uplifting" it should be "aggressive". It should be "warrior". It should say to your opponent:

"You're in our barn. We're going to mercilessly rip your beating hearts out of your chest and shove them down your dying throats."

Metaphorically of course ::D

I didn't say it was. I'm simply having a bit of fun putting something together in my time off (I should really be working...oops). I'm not trying to force it down anyone's throat.

I don't wear skinny jeans either so drop the stereotypes, Mr. Gothic metal :lol:

How about Days Go By by the offspring? Sounds like a good fit.


Might be a bit too upbeat though. Not as upbeat as the new intro though, lol.

I wish they would keep U2. I feel like the song is "part" of the Canucks now. There's been so many good memories with it and I find it to be a perfect song... The way it starts out slow, and slowly starting building up with the sirens. Nothing can beat Where The Streets Have No Name + Towel Power!
KEEP U2!!!(Also, as much as I love the goal song we have right now, I wish Holiday was still our goal song! Again, so many memories attatched with it and was our song for YEARS before they changed it last year. Keep some things the same! Stop screwing around!)

We already have the worst crowd noise in the league, but I think most of this has to do with the inability of DJ Dave to pump up the crowd in ANY way.

As most people have said, DJ Dave had 8 months to think of new ideas and not only did he re-vamp our intro into something ridiculously embarrassing, he is still using the same overused soundtracks.

I think I hear "MAKE SOME NOISE" at least 3-4 times a game at the WORST possible times, to go with Rihanna and other uninspiring music. How does this guy have a gig still?


I know DJ Dave is on this board so PLEASE get your act together.

Seriously, there have to be thousands of "DJs" in Vancouver who could do a better job. I wonder how he still has the gig. Is he related to someone in a strong position?

The fans in that arena are useless. On GCL I have had the opportunity to listen to many of the arenas and Rogers is like a morgue. Nothing to do with the music, the fans are timid and self conscious.

The organisation should give a block of 50 seats to some working class guys and let them "tune up" the rest of the fans. What's the point of record sell outs if they are passionless.

The Canucks need 1000 of my home town fans to show you how it's done. A town with a pop of 50,000 but with the rep of being the noisiest in the UK league.

Are you seriously complaining about the DJ? Really? Maybe the crowd is the problem because its a bunch of people in suits. But the new intro song does suck. The guitar intro to "Streets" was way better it had a good vibe to it and set us apart from other teams that use the same old nickleback,Metallica,ACDC worn out stadium anthems.

I cant believe you are turning on your DJ. haha... its just music and you have torches and pitchforks.

I understand the POINT you're trying to make but do the ends justify the means?

you guys could use a bit of practice on being respectful because i can bet money you wouldnt say those things to his face (if he was standing in front of you). you know why? cause its flipping RUDE. The dude has a boss and you're NOT it...

Treat people how you want to be treated and dont go thinking your the "Boss of the world".


Im sure youre a really great guys but this just seems unproductive and critical.

If fans need just the right music in order to cheer once in a while there is something wrong with either the fans or the product on the ice.

Normally I don't care about this kind of stuff, but that intro was so freekin' bad I would have fired him on the spot. Just awful. A recording of a cat coughing up a hairball would sound better. Embarassing.

I actually like the intro.. I just wish that instead of using Finale by Madeon when the Canucks skate onto the ice, he would transition it back to the old U2 Where the Streets Have No Name song..


Besides, I like the song.. I'm sorry if you like pop music or rock and roll or whatever but that's long gone.. rock and roll is just not the type of culture Vancouver has and never will.
