As Canucks fans have debated the possibility of a new entrance theme throughout the past several weeks, it appears opinions have been completely divided. There are those who do not enjoy techno, and those who not appreciate too heavy a sound. There are those who dislike the idea of generic tracks that receive playback in most arenas. The consensus, however, appears to be that the team needs a unique theme. The choices selected by the Canucks organization for their NU2 Project have been, in the opinions of most fans, underwhelming, and there is nothing to identify with the Canucks or to capture and enhance the Canucks as a brand.

For many, "Where the Streets Have No Name" had an appealing sound that encapsulated the "west coast" sound with the iconic guitar riffs of U2's The Edge. I propose a similar sound. I present a edited/recut instrumental version of "Platform Moon" from Jupiter One's self-titled 2008 album, "Jupiter One." The track features a style consistent with the "west coast" sound, described by some as having a "haunting oceanic sound," but also presenting a kind of intensity, aggression, and coolness not featured in "Where the Streets Have No Name." It is also more upbeat than its U2 counterpart, addressing the problem many had with "Streets." The track is unique in the world of sports, and I feel it could become a part of the Canucks brand easily. Early feedback on other forums has been positive, and while I was too late to officially enter the NU2 competition, I feel with enough support it might receive consideration. After all, DJ Dave's soundtrack is always experimenting with new ideas. I feel this can be a secondary theme for the team, an alternative to U2 without abandoning that sound. While there are suggestions about entrance songs, I believe finding a theme to identify the team with is important.

To achieve this cut of the song, a number of simple edits need to be made. If I had a WAV file of it available (i.e. lossless audio), I'd cut it and have it ready for DJ Dave right away. If he is comfortable with using a normalized MP3 file, I have that available already. Hopefully this will provide an alternative to some of the other suggestions being made.

I'd like to hear your thoughts:

I'm starting to get annoyed with our discussions about the intro and goal song.

These are the least important topics that need to be addressed on our team, not to mention its not like we'll ever all agree on a song,

It is, however, an important part of this team's presentation. As an event and as a form of entertainment, it should be a priority for the organization to present its entire product well. The Canucks organization does a remarkable job, whether it be with the professional sound of their Public Address Announcers (Al Murdoch and John Ashbridge), the Jumbotron presentation, multimedia and promotion, or the in-house music, it all goes towards having a tremendous product. Canucks fans should be proud of what they have, and the staff put in a lot of work into making this a first-class event. If the Canucks are going to select an alternative to their entrance music, however, some consideration should be put into finding a theme that can encompass the brand and the team. The Chicago Bulls of the NBA, for example, found incredible success with The Alan Parsons Project's "Sirius."

The Montreal Canadiens do an incredible job capturing the essence of their team's history in their current opening. One would not initially find Coldplay's "Fix You" to be compatible, but the Habs' concentration on capturing the nostalgia and emotion of their fanbase allows the theme to flourish and enhance the product. The track's mood is one of pride and triumph, and that carries over into the sentiments of the Canadiens crowd when the team skates out.

I feel it's important to capture a particular sound rather than to use generic pump up music. Unfortunately, with the unveiling of the candidates in the NU2 project, it looks like the organization has received the wrong message. An entrance should be as far from generic as possible. I believe an entrance should reflect its team and its city. The team is cool, focused, and intense. The team does its best to capture the west coast concept, and the oceanic sound of the track integrates and reflects that. I think "Streets" is very close to that, but is a bit too light in tone. The percussion in "Platform" is more noticeable and defined, and the melody carries a different mood. While "Streets" is a theme of redemption, "Platform" is one of poise and aggression.

Thanks for the comment.

ive given up any hope of them coming up with a better intro than U2 - or a better tracklist for rogers arena. i mean look at the poll choices, nickelback was the only band i recognized... and EVERY song was garbage. vancouver will always go with trendy, cut and paste radio garbage that nobody will remember in a month. its a reflection of the city unfortunately.

I really like U2 and the beginning of this song kinda gives me the same vibe as Where the Streets Have No Names. I like the beginning, but I'm not a big fan of the other part of the song for a pump-up. I thought that they were trying to bring in a more intimidiating song for whatever reason (not that I care). I wouldn't mind sticking with the streets if we are going to go to another song that has the same type of vibe. Still a lot better than the majority of songs I've heard for the intros though.

I also wouldn't mind doing something similar to what the Hawks do. I kinda like how they switch songs to introduce players.

So, how is this different from the U2 opening? It's got it's own melody but it's the same idea and pace of the song with strumming guitars, yet it's less identifiable and hasn't been a part of our branding for the last however many years. That means a no from me.

U2 is way better.

Gives Canucks fans a feeling of pride for the team, sends chills down the spine. Not too mention it fits the air raid siren perfectly!

While I like U2 better, I think that if we must go for an alternative, this is perfect. You captured everything that was good about U2 - the "haunting oceanic sound" that encapsulates the aura of Vancouver and the West Coast.

I'm tired of everyone talking about how it's not "intimidating" or "aggressive". "Aggressive" is overrated and played out. "Aggressive" is used by teams like Phoenix or Carolina - teams that use rotating "aggressive" music to compensate for the fact that they don't have the aura of tradition that comes with decades of hockey history.

We need something that represents the tradition of the Canucks and the importance of the team in Vancouver - especially something that epitomizes our great city of Vancouver. Something that includes the "haunting oceanic sound" and the natural, chilling beauty of Vancouver, as previously mentioned. Something that truly makes you think of Vancouver when you hear it. Now does some loud, aggressive rock sound really remind you of Vancouver and a long hockey tradition?

Let's look at Montreal for example, the most storied hockey team in the NHL. Do they go with some aggressive song to "pump up fans"? No, they play "Fix You" by Coldplay, which they have for years.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDfHlirkT4w

Now that's bone-chilling. But if that moment were replaced with some generic aggressive rock song, that incredible aura in Montreal would be diminished. Why? Because Montreal has history and tradition, and that song is both part of it and represents it. And yes, when I hear "Fix You", I think of Montreal.

This sounds really good, it's a great way of achieving the same kind of atmosphere as U2 without the embarassing "I want to run, I want to hide" thing.

I think the only trouble with it is that it's lacking in dynamics. It sets up a great atmosphere and tension, but that tension doesn't really bust out into anything more intense. It's a bit of a flatline in terms of energy.

The U2 track is a bit more effectively structured in that regard, U2 being an archetypal pop group they would make sure of that. The way the rhythm section picks up at the end of the intro takes it up a notch, and I think that's what the one you've chosen is lacking.

Thing is it will come under the same criticism that has led people to not want to use the U2 intro, and if that is going to be the case we might as well just stick with U2.

I like it, I think if DJ Dave plays around with the bass levels and EQ, and adds maybe the air siren in it could really work. You also have to take into account that the song does sound different with cheering and rogers arena speakers than our computer speakers. overall not bad!

....I have to admit , its better then I expected...but here is the problem....
it doesnt have the "punch" power of a Warriors Call or Burn it Down...and a Warriors Call
would have been far better if they had edited it forward 15 seconds, then it would have
had a stronger effect....the whole issue is that it is hard to cross the peaceful sound of
the west coast with the aggression of an east coast city and come out with something that
"says" Vancouver.......I dont envy the DJ for the choice he has to make....I voted for
Vol Beat ...but the Nickleback cut was the best set up

I've never understood why we haven't just used an instrumental version of 'Where the streets have no name.'

It would maintain tradition and eliminate the lyrics that make people cringe.

We do use the instrumental of Where the Streets Have No Name. :lol: We always have. That's why I find it a tiny bit ridiculous when people are all over the lyrics. It's not as if they're playing them during the intro.

That is absolutely not true, or at least not all of the time.

Most definitely for a long time we used the lyriced version.
