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!)

Uh no.. Holiday was only around for one season. The season where we went to the Cup. For YEARS, our goal song was this:

I personally love the songs that he used for the intro, but after reflecting on it some they don't really fit the bill for an intro.
And as for all the Top 40 (Katy Perry, Rihanna, Taio Cruz, Flo-Rida, etc...) That stuff needs to stop...

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.


Really? Starting a discussion on someone's inadequecies in their position is disrespectful and indicative of one believing that they are the "Boss of the world?" Yikes, you clearly aren't a fan of open criticism. Listen, if I'm dealing with a 14 year old at the McDonalds counter and they miscount my change, I'm not going to find their manager and ask them to fire him/her because of that. They are clearly a.) new to their position, and b.) not in a very consequential job posiiton. But DJ Dave has been doing this for a while, and whether you like it or not, he's in a vulnerable position in which 18,000+ people will hear his choices every single night, so there are bound to be bigger consequences to poor job performance, which even DJ's are capable of. Now I don't personally have a dog in this race, and couldn't care less what happens to him, but you're just plain wrong in your assessment of the OP's statement. They are entitled to an opinion, and I don't see anything wrong with that. And on a side note, the OP's last sentence was directed to DJ Dave, so something tells me that they aren't particularly afraid to "say something to his face". Just some food for thought.

PS Have you ever openly criticized a single hockey player, ever? Boy I sure hope not, how terribly disrespectful of you that would be. After all, they have a boss and you're not it.

To begin I think the music at Canucks games including all the intros suck big time but that's because they're catering to a lame Vancouver crowd and fanbase and it has to appeal to a wide generic audience. Therefore it all sucks for everyone.

But I'm pretty sure it's against the rules to personally attack a Canuck representive and his job. You know DJ Dave is on the board so show some respect. If you follow along he has stated he's obligated to play the crap he does so ... you don't got to be a jerk about it. Even though I agree the music is absolutely horrible. It's just a small part of the package.

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.

Sorry but this did nothing to pump me up. Does it pump you up?

Maybe some people do get jacked up to synthesizer music. Though I do not know any of them.

Vivian Chan said it best, "Where the Streets Have No Name is great because the slow burn of the song creates a tension and anxiousness especially when it's juxtaposed with the fast paced on-ice visuals. It makes me excited, it makes me scared, It gives me goosebumps for the whole live Canucks game experience. Your body can't figure out exactly what this emotion is that is created by this tension, so you've essentially created a wholly "Canucks" feeling with it."

Actually i HAVEN'T just negatively criticized anyone... because its NOT PRODUCTIVE.
all im saying is that i do understand the OP's point. but people seem to think that theirs is the only opinion that matters and if people don't agree, then they're wrong... Doesn't this OP think that someone in the arena DOES enjoy the music?? I just don't understand why people come on here and shoot people down all day, it feels like people dont remember that they're talking to OTHER PEOPLE, not just supporting actors in the play "this is my life".

Sometimes you just get sick of the whining and complaining. I guess im too old to hang out on a message board with a bunch of people who never seem happy about anything... ever.

PS: i have definitely read worse stuff around here so im sorry that this was "the Straw" so to speak. No reason for me to be preachy though, it inst going to change anything... so ill deal or ill move on.

Fair enough. You may need to realize that most people on this board that you'll deal with are younger, and perhaps unable to articulate their thoughts in a way that doesn't seem more offensive than anything. I can understand how you'd read his post as a simple attack against someone for the sake of attacking, but what I read (between the lines perhaps) is that the OP would suggest that DJ Dave use less of the mainstream music and find some new voice clips. If he'd worded his original post by saying "I think that DJ Dave should use more songs that aren't 'top 40' type songs, and perhaps try experimenting with more sound clips than just 'make some noise' ", I think we would have reacted differently. It sounds to me like there was intention for discussion, but it was poorly worded and came across as an attack.

Of course, I could be wrong, and the OP could have simply meant to attack DJ Dave because his or her diaper wasn't changed. In that case, I support your position. I guess I just read the initial post a bit differently than you did.

Lets just get the U2 opening back.

The crowd not being loud enough is because of the price on the tickets in the lower bowl, not the music DJ Dave plays.

When you think about it, the music we play now would probably make the "maybes/casual fan" louder.

Most of them aren't hardcore hockey fans like most of us, and unlike us they probably don't like hockey pump up songs, so to be able to hear songs that are hot and are popular would get them more excited.

I wouldn't mind more pump up stuff but I have no issue with the job DJ Dave does, Again it's the crowd being quiet not the music.

I don't blame DJ Dave for the crowd but he definitely sucks. He sure doesn't help.

What was with that glitchy House music he was playing Sunday? That was the worst I've heard yet and that's saying something.

Thank you! and when you read the post, its really not that bad, i agree... however the title of the thread IS pretty rude and just set me up to read this as a bit of a temper tantrum...

any heck, I only watch the games on TV cause im in oregon, but i do hear the alot of the same stuff over and over. The winterhawks do much of the same thing, but they throw in some MC HAMMER and kenny loggins between ACDC and gangnam style (sp)

Does DJ Dave Not mix in ANY rock? Maybe his boss hates rock or something?

I dont know DJ dave but he is a person, with a family and bills...

He has asked for suggestions so he does care about doing a better job, right?

Anyway i hope everyone can hear a little something they like (you guys pay enough for tickets thats for sure), and ill just go back to hugging this tree....

Uh no.. Holiday was only around for one season. The season where we went to the Cup. For YEARS, our goal song was this:

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


Holiday was our song for more than one season. But I see what you're saying, not "years". Was just trying to point out that it was a song that stuck around for a bit! Anyways, my mistake!

Honestly, I believe that if anything, it has to do more with ticket prices than the music. Not all of the business companies attending games are going to be on their feet, yelling and cheering. In fact, most won't be. Lower ticket prices = more "real, hardcore" fans attending games = A NOISY ROGERS ARENA! (Not that I'm expecting prices to drop... but would be nice) But I do agree that some different music would be nice... I am completely SICK of Gangnam Style... and have been ever since it came out.

Maybe some people do get jacked up to synthesizer music. Though I do not know any of them them.

That's the song for the video in arena.. The actual song that plays when the players come out on the ice is Finale by Madeon. I do agree that the song doesn't pump people up because it's not a song that can pump people up. I've been to both home games against Anaheim and Edmonton and I'm going tonight and honestly, the crowd stopped cheering after the players come onto the ice. The crowd cheered for a good 10 seconds and then it's just the music blaring with nobody cheering or clapping.

I made a thread on the noise level in rogers arena and the consensus was that it was pretty much due to the prices of tickets for attending games. They're so expensive that you usually only get the corporate crowd within the lower bowl, and the companies that have purchased seasons tickets sometimes dont even go to the games.

I wouldn't blame DJ Dave for the noise level in Rogers Arena (at least not as a main factor), but having said that I really think he needs to up his game. He had an extra half a season to think of some new tracks and nothing was done on the goal song? I saw an article on how you're testing different intros, which is fine, but why not test out different goal songs as well?? Anyways, despite all that, he's the person with the job and I'm not, so I guess I can't say much.

a couple nights ago watching the columbus home opener shocked me... it seemed like columbus was a part of canada... starts with the building being sponsored by labatte and everyone in the crowd is drinking labatte blue and not in sissy little plastic cups but in tallboy cans! opposed to terrible budwiser in plastic cups at rogers arena.... second the music! blew me away they were playing tragically hip, guess who, BTO, 5440, big sugar, rush just good canadian classic rock and the crowd was way more noisey way more into the game. im not saying its because of the music or beer but it definitly didnt hurt! vancouver has been out canadiand by columbus.

I'm interested in hearing what you guys think of having this as the new intro song. I think it's a little more up-beat than the U2 intro and has a lot more base/emotion to it.

Hopefully it hasn't been mentioned already on here, it would at the very least be better than that Techno Song that I heard was one of DJ Dave's picks he's trying out...
