Strangely, while the reaction to the new intro has been unfavourable thus far on CDC, there are more 'likes' than 'dislikes' on the Youtube clip. :blink:


I think most of the likes are geared towards the video projections and the sync. The imagery is pretty cool...the music selection is some of the worst in the league. If they're not going to bring U2 back, they'll at least have to have to do better than this.

sound:
Ok....that sucked. Cheezy tinny cheap sounding tunes that sound like they were made up a week before in someones Mom's basement with a Casio. Its almost as if the "braintrust" in head office told DJ Dave to come up with something on his own...something "electronic" because that's what all the kids listen to these days. Total fail. But please......no more U2!....I can't believe how many unimaginative posters on here that think the only good choice, after that debacle, is going back to that tired old tune by U2. I'm with others that say kick it up a notch...AC DC or RATM

graphics:
And the graphics were just as bad. Way too busy. Too many photos flashing on and off. If they were simply abstract images or stylized it might be ok, but actual photos? That kind of dizzying display turns into a headache on ice. I did like the ice lines catching fire at the start...that was promising. They should lose all those snapshots and just make up a great animation. Why not fuse in some of that Olympic ceremony stuff with the whales swimming and surfacing with those flaming lines. Then breaking through the ice...it would relate to their logo at least.

This is just awful (Sorry, DJ Dave). STICK WITH U2!!!
It would be awesome if they changed everything back to the way it was in the 2010.11 season. The entrance song (WTSHNN) with the goal song (Holiday). I love the goal song we have now, but Holiday was even better, in my opinion. Both songs give me goosebumps whenever I hear them!
U2 energizes the crowd perfectly (especially during the playoffs with TOWEL POWER!!!). The song starts off slow and calm and starts building up with the sirens. I think it gets a lot of fans into it.

Miller is not on our list. It's Lack as our #1. There is no reason we would have traded both Schnieder and Luongo if we never intended to give Lack the #1 starting job.  Furthermore, the salary and term Miller is looking for is not in our favor.

DJ Dave did a great job with the intro! It's cutting edge and unique to Vancouver. Personally, I would love to hear Deadmau5 - Professional Griefers (Instrumental Version) when the players come out on the ice. More punch to it!

Here's the latest from the Project NU2:



I want to run - I want to hide


One song. Two sentences. Eight words. Twenty-one letters. Too many varied opinions to count.


When the Vancouver Canucks were introduced for their regular season opener last Saturday night, they skated out to DJ M.E.G.’s Stock-Holm; that song was once again played Sunday night, before Map of the Problematique by Muse ushered the Canucks out Wednesday against the Calgary Flames.


Yes, the Vancouver Canucks are officially on the hunt for a new entrance song.


Judging from the response Kathy Anderson got when discussing U2, it’s a hot topic.

Again, U2’s Where the Streets Have No Name will no longer be the only song played when the Canucks skate onto the ice; it will still be used, in rotation, with a handful of other songs, none of which the Canucks are locked into.

We do things different on the West Coast, as is reflected in the recently released Our Team, Our Way campaign, featuring everything that makes living and playing hockey in Vancouver unique.


In sticking with that, the hunt for a truly original song began; it’s time the Canucks skated out to something fresh in hopes of firing the team and the fans up to provide the ultimate home ice advantage en route to the ultimate prize.


While no song suggestion is bad, we’ve come up with some criteria for what we’re looking for musically:

-It should drive energy and anticipation of the upcoming battle

-Something unique you won’t hear in any other arenas or stadiums


-A timeless quality (Sorry, Gangnam Style supporters)


-It must resonate with our large, diverse Canucks family


-Must have a huge impact in a short amount of time (the team’s only skating for 1-2 minutes and the first few seconds are critical)


-Should possess an anthemic je ne sais quoi


Obviously we’re looking to avoid all outdated/cliché songs, and also tunes with narrow appeal. While AC/DC’sThunderstruck, Beautiful People by Marilyn Manson and anything from Metallica is frequently heard with other teams, it’s a new season and it’s time for a new song for the Canucks.


That’s where you come in. Your opinion matters to us, so have your say below. Your voice will help determine the future.


Clearly, they're open to suggestions, just so long as no one takes Bruce Allen up on his idea to hire Chad Kroeger to write something for us. There is a submission form there to put in your ideas, and they'll consider it for one of the possible intro songs.

Well you aren't going to like my suggestion then...


I submitted my choice, even though I love the U2 intro:


It has that EPIC movie sound building as a part of an opening video right up to 0:57 - where it could pause and the announcer could say, "Ladies and Gentlemen, your Vancouver Canucks!" - at which point the music could begin again with the drop into the dubstep. I'm not even a fan of dubstep but I think this actually makes sense from a musical standpoint.

Fair enough with respect to the seahawks. The one thing that is different though is how loud their fans get. I've only been to one game in Seattle (an easy win because colts played their backups in the second half) and it was way louder than any Canucks game I've been at, playoffs included.

Maybe you missed it but I agree with you in keeping U2! I know what you mean about the connection as I made it to the second game against Chicago that year. I just meant that IF they change the intro (shouldn't) it should be to something that isn't softer than a Chris Tanev slapshot haha. I realize my suggestion is generic, but this isn't art class and there aren't bonus points for being creative. Those kind of songs are popular because they pump up the players and also the fans


This is my vid from the Seahawks into vs SF on the Sunday night game. Atmosphere was electric. First video is player intro.



The 2nd vid is after the after the player intro and raising of the 12th man flag (Canucks lamely tried the raising of a 7th man flag for a couple games and it was a disaster) listen to the crowd get amped up and when the intro to "kick start my heart" comes on before kick off the place explodes. Seahawks fans know how to be loud!

I actually like it, surprisingly. Still think Outro by M83 should get a look. I am all for keeping U2 but both of these are nice options.

That was my reaction too, surprise. I was looking for epic sounding movie and gaming music and cam across a playlist of a bunch of the Gladiator epic type songs, and this one stuck out with the electronic mixed in.

As far as the M83 song, that's pretty slow for the most part, although I could see it as a buildup song in a video before the Canucks take the ice.

I love it until it hits the dubstep. I can't stand that stuff.

I do like the beginning though.

I don't find it so 'dubsteppy' as all the Skrillex stuff that I know I don't like, if that makes sense. I found it to be a reasonable blend and really seemed to fit the bill of what they're looking for - not just another Gladiator clone song, and not just classic rock so it'd appeal to a younger audience.

We'll see, lots of suggestions on the Fort Nucks page I linked before as well.

I think the worst thing DJ Dave ever did was come to this board for suggestions. The U2 intro had become a part of Canucks history and culture. It was amazing, it gave me chills. And then because some 14 year old with zero taste made a thread complaining that it didn't "rock" hard enough, it gets thrown in the trash.
