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:


You sure whine a lot.


Please change the U2, that song is for sissies. Some classic rock or hard rock is more the style for hockey.

Well kids, as luck would have it, we are looking into this very topic. stay tuned for more to follow, but just to say that this topic is not dead, in fact is very much alive!

one more week to go - and we're BACK IN BUSINESS!!!

Dave, if you change the intro song, then by the love of all things holy I will come to a game, make my way up to your "DJ Office" or wherever in the world it is that you do your thang, and I will place a bag of kittens on your chair.

It's an identity but I wouldn't mind if it changed. Too slow and epic to be a pump up song. Gives the other team just as much of a buzz.

I'm by no means what-so-ever a new fan, but I never saw the U2 song as a part of our team identity one bit. The song is way too passive-sounding and tame to be memorable, IMO.

In simpler terms, it's not a good opening.

The opening is fine as is. If players require 'pump up music', they are f'd anyway.

As for being to passive, the song is also used by the Baltimore Ravens without ill affect.

It's not that U2 is bad, I think its an amazing intro but I think we need to pump something new and fresh for our intro.

I think the goal song should be changed back to Holiday as well :P

How about the intro to MOre Human by White Zombie. YEEEEAAAHHHH BUUDDDYYYYY!!! :towel:

Instead of the woman at the beginning, splice in some hockey sounds and inspirational quotes, then the big guitar slide as the players hit the ice and BOOM! JACKED BRAh!!

I hate the song, it's a terrible song for a hockey crowd to get pumped up to.

I'm with you. I rarely play anything by PINK, as there's usually enough SHOUTING going on in the arena.

appreciate the input!

We've used it in the past. I kinda like it - but when it kicks in, it sort of dies a quick death. the lead-up to it is wonderful. I will often use to start the 2nd and 3rd periods - or perhaps even the odd powerplay..

Dave, please no more girl techno pop songs.
Play some, metal/rock and hardcore rap(Wu-Tang, NWA)


Unfortunately we must cater to the fan base and demographic, so - although sparingly - you will hear top 40/pop being played during the games. It's all about timing (and keeping it short!)

appreciate the feedback,

@ DJ Dave,

If it matters at all, here's one Canucks fan who likes the intro just the way it is. Best one in the league IMO. I'm not a U2 fan, but in that setting and the absolutely seamless transition from the intro video on the jumbotron to Streets With No Name... can't beat it. I have the "Entrance & Anthems" clips from the home games of the 2011 playoff run saved to my computer from the CanucksHD Youtube channel I like it so much.


Appreciate the input. it will be noted....

I'm not even a fan of Rock Music. But that and sometimes techno works to get me pumped up for games.

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.

THIS IS AWESOME!

Gonna add to the playlist...

thanks for sending.

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.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRLdhFVzqt4


this is nice. Been playing more contextual "score" pieces over the last while. will definitely use this one.

thanks for the suggestion.....keep 'em coming.

I love the opening with the guitar riff the way it is in that song, and if I'm not mistaken the lyrics aren't even played - it's just the guitar and the goal horn and all that. The stuff with the Odds was fun but not anything I'd want for an opener. The goal song with Clutch is great too, awesome and unique.

I do agree a little less pop/dance music and more rock, but I doubt the suggestion of hard rap would be anything even close to a good idea.

Whatever you do, there's always someone wishing it was different, but there's change for the sake of it isn't necessary when we have such an established intro and people know it's ours.


very well-informed and measured posting. thank you for this....

will take under consideration for sure.

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.


I'm not disagreeing with you, but the top 40 isn't going anywhere. it does - at times - suit the demographic. there are lots of kids in attendance.

that said, we always try to find that right balance....

appreciate the input.

Far too much like a film score (when does Russel Crowe appear?) and too non descript for me.
