I Agree 100%.
CHANGE IT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!
Its weak. It has always been weak and it will only get weaker.
I even like most U2, but where the streets have no name?!? ...its some whiney pre-emo b.s.
Our intro needs to be aggro. It needs to be bada$s. It needs to be strong.
Marilyn Manson Beautiful People has been used, but it needs to be something along those lines. Something that says WE ARE NOT PU$$ieS!! THIS IS OUR HOUSE AND WE ARE GONNA EFF U UP!

This is the best opening song in the NHL! I love it, and it gives me goosebumps every time I hear it.

The opening song should remain.

What we SHOULD discuss is the music played during the game.

Please stop playing top 40 music DJ Dave. It's ridiculous. A hockey game is a whole different atmosphere.

The problem is that people are mistaking "chilling" and "goosebump inducing" for pump-up music. Not the same thing.


Only reason everyone's getting "goosebumps" is because the songs makes you think Canucks cause its been around for awhile. A change of song to pump people up would be a good, an eventually you'd get the same goosebumps whenever you heard whatever song is chosen

If we are a nasty and physical team people won't associate pussiness with us and Where The Street Has No Name. It's a great intro.

So if we walk out with Wherever I May Roam, are we going to be known as a physical team?

Get some mean nasty players if you want to be known as a mean nasty team. Changing the song won't help.

Keep the U2 but strap fairy wings on the canucks and instead of their names on the back, each player shall be dubbed "Tinkerbell". Then when the song is done, you can drop a bunch of sparkly fairy dust on the crowd. Vancouver demographics will eat that $hit up.
:sick:

"I wanna run

I wanna hide"

Itsth purrfect, in a weak, effeminate, non intimidating, disney kind of way. Yay Vancouver!!!!


But I thought we played the instrumental version?

I love the fact people think of the instrumental as weak, considering we have Justin Bieber and One Direction crap out there.
Would you prefer that?

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.


How is a song going to instill fear into grown men. The song has no bearing of the outcome of the games ,therefore, not important. How can anyone worry about the intro song.

It's a different feeling when you're at the game. I've been to multiple games where they've used U2 as the opening song and each and every time, the opening video transitioning to this song gives me the chills every single time. I'd honestly rather listen to this than hearing what Chicago has to deal with.


Do you know what Chicago has to deal with? Their frackin annoying goal horn each game as the players come on the ice.

BAD MOVE!!!

BAD FING MOVE

HAHAHA ANOTHER INJURED MORON ON OUR TEAM

HE WILL JOIN US IN 2019

Benning will be fired next year. Hope he enjoys screwing around for a few months. I just cant believe this. Another injured BC player. We just got rid of garrison. Seems like the canucks and linden just wanted any BC born player. Doesn't matter if hes good or not. We don't need another Linden to get us to game 7 of the Stanley cup and lose. We need someone to win us a cup.

5 million a year for Vrbata? 6 million for Miller? Kesler for Bonino and 24th instead of 10th pick or one of their top prospects? Garrison for scraps?

ive already lost faith in JB. Ive never EVER had this bad of a feeling about management.

Don't tell them that........these people don't even pay attention to the intro........hell they hardly watch the games at all. Too busy playing on their x-box with early deafness setting in from their "death metal" dime a dozen groups playing through their iPods............I mean does anyone actually buy that stuff? Then they watch the highlights and come on here like hockey experts. :sadno:

I say keep the opening. It's tradition. It signals what's about to happen on the ice. It's gametime. The horn sprinkled in is awesome, and loved a few times where an inspirational quote from Churchill was thrown in. Maybe have different quotes from identifiable people such as JFK or MLK.

I still get chills watching on TV when the U2 opening comes on. Even for regular season games.

I don't even like U2 and I can safely say that we have the best playoff opening in the league. The combination of the music, the lights and the crowd gives me goosebumps every time.

can you use the song "the game" by Motorhead? Its been used rarely but I like to hear it more. It is a good pump up song.

Personally attended 6 games in the 2011 finals. Boston was down 2-0 ahead of game 3. Their fans had every reason to be apprehensive and they were, pre game milling around the Garden. They came onto Audioslave's "Cochise" and their mood seamed to change from passive to aggressive. Maybe it wasn't the music, could have been the first drops of beer entering their bloodsteams, who knows but it did.

Game 4 they were full of confidence after we fished the puck out of our net 8 times in game 3 and didn't need pump up music. Game 6 they were facing elimination and were a bit apprehensive but confident. Music/beer kicks in and the vibe is different.

I am well aware we play the instrumental version of U2's "Where the streets...". Just as everyone old enough to have a driver's license is aware of the lyrics even if they aren't played. It's kind of a famous song.

Would Audioslave's "Cochise" work in Vancouver? Or as another poster suggested Motorhead's "The Game"? Probably not. The demographic in Vancouver if quite a bit different from just about any other NHL city and you have to appeal to your demographic. That said, the U2 is a little tired. If DJ Dave wants to try something different what's the harm? Maybe he'll find a better fit that what we have now?
