The Canucks Need a New Goal Song

    I agree with you, Richard. I was also going to point out “Rock & Roll Part 2″, which the Canucks used to use in the 90s. I grew up on that goal song and I also remember being disappointed by the GM Place horn when they moved, mostly because I thought the Pacific Coliseum’s horn/Rock & Roll Part 2 combo was pretty special.

    I can’t say that I completely agree with you on the Rangers’ goal song, but the Canucks do need something different. Last year with the Crowd Chant was all right (despite the similarities to the hated Minnesota Wild). I also thought Bouncing Souls song was good in the early 00s.

    However, since I am such a die hard Canucks fan, my phone’s ringtone seems to often follow what the current goal song is ;) Although, it’s currently the Dexter theme.

    The 05/06 horn has much more muscle to it…more force.

    As for the music…to me it’s negligible. The main thing is the blast of the horn.

    The BEST horn was back in the day, when only the Chicago Stadium and the Aud in Buffalo had them…they were both killer horns…with the edge going to the Aud.

    Montreal had the best Goal Song in 03-04: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQS6XKEQEdo

    As far as the “woo” is concerned, I don’t mind it. People who are not Canucks fans think it is annoying but they don’t know about the history behind it with Alex Burrows as well as the infamous Woo victory celebration.

    Spiro, that is a brilliant goal song. I agree that is fantastic.

    I agree. I feel GM Place doesn’t put on much of a show. I suppose they don’t have to cause it’s already a sellout every night. However what about honking the ferries horn say 3 times and hold the 3rd time if it’s the third goal…. I think it’s St Louis that does this and it’s great!

    Great post. And I agree, this year’s horn is sort of limp like a wet noodle. It’s got no oomph. I am all for going back to something like Olé which was a little better, but it still doesn’t seem to be the perfect Canucks goal song. My brain’s in over drive trying to come up with something that doesn’t suck.

    I’ve always liked this song as a goal song in football in Scotland, it still works great though…

    Hey, great blog. I just discovered it. My friend also sent me a link to thestevenetwork.ca. Some really funny shot on there. Check out the one about Canada’s 10 Sexiest Olympians.

    They’ll never use Gary Glitter’s Rock n’ Roll Pt. 2 again because Gary has been charged and served time for both child pornography and child sexual abuse.

    I believe this is also why the song was dropped from the EA NHL game franchise.

    I don’t think there is anything wrong with the Canucks goal song. I’m at every game and when the Canucks score the building is always into it. The version you have posted is not exactly correct either. The version the Canucks has a “hey” at certain points of the song. It’s hard to explain unless you are there in the arena to hear it. You can’t hear it while you watch on TV because the announcers are always talking over it.

    I want to know what you don’t like about the goal song? Besides you just thinking it is “lame” and that you don’t like Green Day; what other problems do you have? The crowd is mostly all standing and having a great time after a goal is scored. And remember these are just regular season games…in the playoffs the crowd goes extra crazy for every goal. I’m not sure what you want the crowd to do in every regular season game.

    Somebody had to take the other side :)

    You don’t like the goal song cause it’s Green Day. You obviously don’t like Green Day, so don’t say Holiday sucks because you don’t like the band. Please, shut the fuck up & and don’t say the song sucks because you have personal dislikes towards the band. Fucker. Green Day does not suck.

  26. Richard Loat says:

    I don’t like Green Day, I don’t like the song, but my point also stands that it’s a brutal song to play after a goal. It doesn’t get the crowd into it and it’s straight boring.
