Seriously...not even joking I remember when I saw this on a playoffs pump up video....I was bumped for the playoffs after watching the Canucks to this...the hook is so fitting.

Credit to Samjam99......since he got flames on TSN poor kid has gone MIA, but yes...ya see what I mean?

The key difference is that Sopel can fill in for Seabrook and Campbell just fine. Bieksa, he is garbage so in that sense he is like the worst defenseman in the league.


When Cody (Hodgson) gets older, he might be better than Datsyuk.


Let's not push this guy (Kassian). He's still immature, and if he fails on the 2nd line it's because he isn't ready. Some guys really need years to develop, it's how well and how fast players adapt to the game. In my opinion, I'd rather have Horvat getting 2nd line minutes. He will start off on the 3rd line next season but I see him making the transition, being a great compliment to whoever plays his wings.

At this point, I don't see Kassian fitting in to any role other than a 3rd. If players like Kassian start getting 2nd line minutes then we just stay inconsistent as a team.

Wow, I can't believe people are against the U2 intro. It would be hard to find a better pump up song than that.

But, if we're looking, I thought someone else's suggestions of Japandriods was genius. They're a Vancouver band so it would a great promotion for some local guys:

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.

Maybe the Canucks can dress up in Tron uniforms and skate around the ice while they glow.. maybe that will help the song... LOL :bigblush:

I'm a huge phan of Phish and I just have to say this...for all the opening or intro might suck...it's really awesome to hear him work in a couple of Phish jams througjhout the game...I've heard "AC/DC Bag" "Kill Devil Falls" and the intro to "Chalk Dust Torture" before face-offs countless times. While I'm not a fan of the intro...Dave's got some good taste in music played other times.

They're actually asking for feedback/suggestions:

http://canucks.nhl.c...vid=DL|VAN|home


And, Champions of Nothing, help me out here. Local boy, song starts with cheerleaders (...that's the way we spell success)...I think it would be awesome as they come down the tunnel and on the ice for warm ups. That part, at the beginning, then it transitions, beautifully, from the intro into the song for the actual warm up - not too intense, but builds in momentum.

Giant (Matthew Good Band). It would work.

or, Everything Is Automatic.

We need something all our own.


EDIT: OK, in reading more that Japandroids band/song (being local talent) would also get my support. I just like the idea of throwing something uniquely our own into the mix. That one would work (lyrics fit too).

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.


HELLO FRIENDS!

Make no mistake - I absolutely LOVE all of your comments and passion for our beloved Canucks! Wouldn't have it any other way. There's nothing worse than an apathetic and lame fan base. I'm proud to be among Canucks Nation, as well as being the DJ.

Now - you must all understand that I take this very seriously. At the start of every year, there's a team that develops elements such as the opening video, player entrance piece, goal song and many other important elements of game presentation. The team represents a wide variety of demographics and tastes, just like our fan base, and we often have the same types of debates that show up on this message board.

With every creative element including music, we aim to try and appeal to our diverse fan base and also reflect the unique identity of the hockey club and our city. We focus on providing a soundtrack to the action on the ice which will create the best energy in the arena, while using a good combination of progressive, contemporary music in addition to classic rock and other iconic songs that fit the moment, the sport, and our club.

However, many of the artists that you all have referenced - I do NOT play. Starting next home game - Jan 30 vs. Colorado - I am going to start posting the playlists either after the game, or the next morning. I encourage you all to have a look, game by game, and maybe then get a better sense of what's actually being heard at the home games. (I haven’t played Rihanna once this year.....)

My most challenging task is to keep it fresh, and not repeat songs - if we can help it. If you listen to professional sports broadcasts - as I suspect most of you do - you'll hear the same song being played multiple times at each game, and the vast majority of those songs would be the same as they were in 1981. We're trying new things - some of which work well, some of which don't - in an attempt to be on the cutting edge of not only music, but overall game presentation.
It's also very much appreciated all the suggestions that you guys send in. For obvious reasons, there are selections that I simply can't play during the game (eg. those on the heavier side of speed metal). But make no mistake, I have gotten, and continue to get, many great ideas from the boards, and implement them during the games.

Enough said. Know that we take the comments to heart, and do try and please as many people as possible. Keep on being involved, and we’ll do the same.

I don't understand... The atmosphere at games is amazing or it was when I went... Some songs are bad but meh it's only a few. And everyone talks about the "suits" in the front rows, you know they don't sit in the front right? The front is usually filled with construction workers and other normal people since the "suits" are at the top in suites. Last time I went there was non-stop cheering and wave, it seems dull on tv because the crowd volume is cancelled out. If you have a problem with the crowd but tickets... It's only like185$ to sit at the centre in the 2nd/3rd row.

I think you've COMPLETELY missed the boat DJ Dave, people are asking for heavier music, not necessarily Speed Metal as you just (exaggerated) per se. Even a little of the above listed Audioslave-level (as far as intensity goes) rock would do, with less pop music (which simply does not work with nhl hockey). Forget trying to please all parties and try to create a FEELING of greater intensity within the arena, which you have failed to do in all your years thus far. We see it happening in all these other arenas (which have been listed at noseum) and in other pro sports leagues to perfection (the nfl, the nba) so why be so stubborn?

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.


This.

You can also play all the music you want, it won't change the fact that a majority of fans in Rogers have their eyes glued to their phones during the game. Put your damn phone away, I hope someone gets nailed with a puck one day because they were too busy updating their Facebook status.

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".

Not being stubborn, just giving a little more insight. you'll see - as the season wears on, and the games get more intense, you'll notice more RAWK! Appreciate it.

Could you bring back Holiday DJ Dave? Just for a game and see what happens? Because honestly, I, among many Canucks fans, dislike the current one.

Hey DJ Dave! I think what a lot of the people posting here are failing to understand is that music taste is very diverse and although there are some great metal songs and "heavier artists" I am sure that Canucks management wishes to keep the atmosphere family friendly.

Personally I think you do a great job and on a tour of the Rog I got see your work area and it looked like you could launch to the moon with all the gear you had there.

I think the after game playlists are a great idea, and maybe even trying a game where we could have some input on the playlist prior to the game. Something like a pre-game playlist thread and see if everyone's tastes in music can be saited.

Very Professional.

Even with 50 or so "plus" votes, thats a tiny percentage of the views.

I like the Canucks music. Sure, the dance stuff isn't really my thing, but at the games i have been to it is clear that there are those who do. I am whole heartedly happy that we don't come out to ACDC or NICKELBACK like every single other team and even happier that the goal song isn't 20 years old like in San Jose.

Vancouver fans (or a large group of them...the vocal minority) seem to always want something to bitch about. Look at Boston's fans and you'll see people who stand behind their team 100%. You're either a fan or you aren't, but if you are, your support is unwavering.

It isn't the music people. It's the fact that you can hear it.

DJ Dave,

I hope ever single person in this thread submitted a song for you to review. We all have opinions about what is "awesome" and what "sucks" and i just wanted to thank you for Giving a damn... its more than we could say about a lot of people, right?

Very often, I can be hard to please, but at least i recognize when people are at least TRYING to make me happy. So thank you for TRYING to make everyone happy (and not just waggling your middle finger in everyone's face).

Peace out, Go Canucks Go!

well I have to say I muchly apprecite your comment. it is BANG ON.

a good amount of the tracks I play during the games are not songs I will listen to while driving to Whistler, but you're absolutely correct - THEY WORK! Remember last season - that dancing kid who managed to go viral and end up on CNN and The Today Show? that was LMFAO - Sexy and I know it. Not what many of those posting here want to hear during a game, but certainly did catch on!

As I've always said - I appreciate the passion....
