That's why it's so popular?
It's better than boxing.


Maybe now it is more popular, but boxing is the a olympic sport and one of finesse and balance.
MMA has energy drink deals. Jagger-bombs anyone?? = D

I second, third, and fourth that O.P. It's almost as bad as the same old, same old "it gives me goose bumps" reply to anyone suggesting we do a good thing and change it. I would prefer something that fires them up, not put them to sleep.

For the people commenting on the lyrics of the song: there are no lyrics in the intro. Who cares if boner says I want to run I want to hide. That's not our intro, that's the U2 song. There aren't sirens in the U2 song
And Dave. Stop playing the girly pop dance music. Seriously. It's embarrassing.

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!


Could not disagree more!!!!!!!!

The U2 intro is hooooooorrrrible. It's so tacky, I want something bada**.

When the Levee Breaks, by Zeppelin would work nicely. Heavy instrumentals, perfect intro. Swag will win us the cup.

PS bring back 'Good Thing' for the goal song!

You know what? If we're going to change it why don't we do something like Katy Perry - Part of Me or Ke$ha - Die Young? Maybe throw Gangnam Style in there. It might really throw our opponent off. They'll be thinking, "WTF was that?" and then bam 3-0 Canucks. I mean if it doesn't work then who cares? We're so fickle anyways that we'll probably change it by the end of the week. But you know I've been thinking about what those guys said about a SONG not being intimidating enough so I think if we really want to intimidate our opponent why don't we have a human sacrifice at centre ice before every game? I think if we did that the other team won't even want to come onto the ice. They'll just be freaked out and leave. And if they did come onto the ice they'll be worried thinking that they're next.

What a joke.

It's an instrumental mix. I vote keep it. There's nothing more chilling than the towels at playoff time with Streets playing. It may not translate as well on TV but when you're there live it's absolutely stunning. Dave keeps changing the goal song so it's nice to have Streets as one identifying piece of Canucks music.

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?


Tradition of what? Losing? this opening has been associated with nothing but losing..

I went to game 2 of the cup finals, nothing but nervous anticipation then with U2 playing, and NO WHERE near as loud as other "big games" i've been to, then I went to game 7 and people could not have been more scared/nervous with that song opening the night, we were on our heels before the game even started....

blackhawks opening:



ahhhh yeaa... kinda gets you a little more pumped up then

I wannnaaaaaaa runnnnnnn and touch the rainnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

Yeah I'm not a huge fan of the intro, sure it sounds better live but it doesn't get me pumped.
I've been to a couple Flames vs Canucks games in Calgary and having Marilyn Manson playing as their intro really got me pumped for the game. Something heavy that just gets the blood flowing.
If they do change it I'd love too see it changed to something along the lines of this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2lg_k1SwrQ0

Lyrics to the song:

Feel the fire he's entered the ring.

His mindset only knows how to win.

This Danish fighter will break you in two.

You will feel all his power.



The Viking warrior Mikkel Kessler will now brand his

name.

In the back of your head.


Yeah, you'll feel the floor again.

Unleashing his hell. you will not even hear the bell.

Maybe you're strong but you don't stand a chance.



Feel the power of the warrior.

Fight, fight, fight, fight.

Let's get ready to rumble.

Fight, fight, fight, fight.



Breaking your record and breaking your bones.

Born a warrior, with a code.

A champion feeding your face with a fist.

You will feel all his power.



The Viking warrior Mikkel Kessler will now brand his

name.

In the back of your head.

Yeah, you'll feel the floor again.

Unleashing his hell, you will not even hear the bell.

Maybe you're strong but you don't stand a chance.



Feel the power of a warrior.

Fight, fight, fight, fight.

Let's get ready to rumble.

Fight, fight, fight, fight

A gladiator's left hand hook.

Fight, fight, fight, fight

Feel the pain tomorrow.



Behold here comes the son.

Believe it, he was born to be the chosen one.

The call is for a warrior.

His name will echo on the sea and on the cloud.



Feel the fire he's entered the ring.

His mindset only knows how to win.

This Danish fighter will break you in two.

You will feel all his power.



The Viking warrior Mikkel Kessler will now brand his

name.

In the back of your head.

Yeah, you'll feel the floor again.

Unleashing his hell, you will not even hear the bell.

Maybe you're strong but you don't stand a chance.



Feel the power of a warrior.

Fight, fight, fight, fight.

Let's get ready to rumble.

Fight, fight, fight, fight.

A gladiator's left hand hook.

Fight, fight, fight, fight.

Feel the pain tomorrow.



Behold here comes the son.

Believe it, he was born to be the chosen one.

The call is for a warrior.

His name will echo on the sea and on the cloud.

Don't think that we should replace the U2 opening but I think Heart of Courage from Two Steps from Hell would be a good song for the intro on the videotron. Would be good for say the first game of the playoffs. Worked great at EURO 2012 but man imagine the atmosphere in Rogers if this was played.

as great as that intro is, that's chicago's identity, not OURS. our identity is this song, it's what makes the Canucks the Canucks. in fact, just the other day, one of my friends who i didnt even know watched any hockey recognized "where the streets have no name" on the radio, and said to me "hey, isnt that the canucks song?" what other song could have that impact! Seriously, we've identified this song as the canucks song, so why would you want to replace it with any other heavy metal rock song that all the other teams use. Please DJ Dave, keep U2!!!

I think Heart of Courage would be a good intro song with some tinkering.

Leave U2 alone.

Change the goal song to one that doesn't suck. I think it probably irritates our team as much as it does the opposition.

Adjust the arena music to very little top 40 and much more rock. There aren't enough preteen girls in the audience to justify the current playlist.

Thank you.

Ok First, you can't just say that Judo and Wrestling are huge parts of the "sport" considering MMA seems to exploit several different areas of fighting. Muay Thai, Karate and others play big rolls in making up the cluster fawk known as MMA. It is like saying that peanuts are a HUGE part of trail mix. Who are you lying to me or yourself??

Second, Sure boxing has lost some of it's prestige over the years but there are a few legends that keep the sport fresh in our minds even today. Should that /not/ speak to it's greatness.

GSP is a great fighter, but if Dayna White didn't over-promote the crap out of him would you know his name if he competed in Judo or Wrestling. = / ( I think no)

I would rather my ear bit off in a stand up fight then getting 'ground and pound-ed' by someone that is clearly abusing HGH

Don't change the song.... Classics never die.

I almost made it through the whole thing. For the opening song? WTF.

Sounds like something I heard on an endless loop at a nightclub in Kiev.

Reminds me of a quote from a local boy (though maybe not so local anymore)........

I like your style

you think BONO even knows what hockey is? hell no!

We should just start playing Lady GAGA she is at the very least more masculine

we need a fast, heavy, intimidating, metal band

For people that appreciate Violence and Mayhem
