Whatever happened to The FInal Countdown and Rock & Roll pt 2 being played at hockey games???


uh..... the countdown ran out, eh?

As for the Garry Glitter song (RRP2) that's a different story. Gary Glitter was convicted of child molestation, and many arenas removed that song as their goal song. This happened to the Sharks, and they went through a voting process that eventually got Green Day's "Holiday" as our goal song. Ugh...just what I want to hear... manufactured pop-punk made for 1`2 year old girls at a hockey game. However.... this year they put the Glitter song back in after the fans comlained so much about it. No offense to those that use the internet, but using the chatroom and the website in SJ as a reflection of the crowd was a mistake, and apparently the minority.

There were actually t-shirts made that said "HEY! We want our goal song back".

If you used to hear this song at the Joe and don't anymore, this is most likely why.


this is cut and pasted from a Sharks site:

“The Hey Song”
Rhythmically challenged fans will be pleased to learn that the old goal song – “Rock and Roll, Part 2,” nicknamed “The Hey Song” – is back by popular demand. (Last season’s song, “Holiday” by Green Day, has a good beat that you can really dance to, but it took all season for fans to figure out on which beat to pump their fists in the air to celebrate a goal. Some fans never quite caught on and simply stood there and clapped.) Major league and college sports teams dumped “The Hey Song” in 2006 when the man who first made it famous, Gary Glitter, was convicted of child molestation charges in Vietnam. It’s worth noting that the version played at the Tank is an organ version of the song and not the original, and that Glitter receives no royalties when the song is played. So hey – your demands were heard and heeded.

Yeah I know all about the gary glitter molestation deal.

Idk, it's just music. It's the same principle with Michael Jackson. Regardless of whatever he did with those kids, his music is still great. I think an artists music and personal life should never be linked together too strongly.

Stompin Tom!

'Hello out there we're on the air it's hockey night tonite
Tension grows the whistle blows-& the puck goes down the ice.
The goalie jumps and the players bump and the fans all go insane
Someone roars "Bobby scores!" at the good ole hockey game
Chorus:
Oh the good ole hockey game is the best game you can name
And the best game you can name is the good ole hockey game
2nd period:
Where players dash with skates aflash the home team trails behind
But they grab the puck and go bursting up and they're down across the line
They storm the crease like bumble bees they travel like a burning flame
We see them slide the puck inside -It's a "1-1" hockey game!
Chorus:
3rd period: last game in the playoffs, too...
Oh take me where the hockey players face off down the rink-
And the Stanley Cup is all filled up for the chaps who win the drink-
Now the final flick of the hockey stick and a one gigantic scream-
The puck is in! The home team wins! The good ole hockey game!'

I still think the best "hockey songs" in no particular order are


-Rock and Roll (pt 2) by Gary Glitter
-Kiss Him (Goodbye) by Steam
-The Hockey Song by Warren Zevon
-Heavy by Collective Soul (I think it was used in an EA NHL game...2001?)
-for some reason the BGSU ice arena always plays Ants Marching by DMB
-The Launch by DJ Jean

yeah just look a Brittany Spears... oh wait her music is awful too.

The "Good Old Hockey Game" song was redone by the Corb Lund Band.... some kind of pop/funk remix it really sucks!!!

I also enjoy "Me Like Hockey" by the Arrogant Worms its really funny!

dude...just... no. Nothing with "DJ" in the title.

I wanna Ride the Zamboni
The Hockey Song
Me Like Hockey (The Arrogant Worms)
Runnin' Back To Saskatoon (Who Guess)
Hockey - Jane Siberry
Gordie And My Old Man - Grievous Angels
The Ballad of Wendel Clark, Parts I and II - Rheostatics

THOSE are some hockey songs.

The Gary Glitter song is a great goal song though.

There is this one song that is played at a few rinks. It is basically an orgy of guitar solos mixed in with some heys and hos. It is like (guitar solo)hey hey hey hey hey(guitar solo) ho ho ho ho ho. All I know is it is pretty awesome song. Anyone know the name?
I hate People who have a signature.

In the '70's, wasn't Emerson Lake and Palmer's "Hoe Down" the theme song for Hockey Night in Canada?



And any of you guys know Buddy Wasisname and The Other Fellas playing "Shinny on the Ice". Great unplugged classic.


100% Pure
SHINNY ON THE ICE

Wait until the bay is froze, scrape and shovel off the snow
Well the scattered boy had skates, scattered toque on from his face
Wearing rubbers with no grips, pipes and planks for hockey sticks
Well I know it wasn't nice playing hockey on the ice

After school and Sunday too made no difference who was who
We had Rolly for the goalie, 'cause he was six foot two
Watch for Ralphie on his skates, couldn't turn he'd just go straight
If he struck he'd take your life, playing hockey on the ice.

Oh when Harv or Bruce or Len, shifted the net and fired one in
Rolly beat him in the face but they was all the best of friends
If you had to use your fists, you kept on your woolly mitts
And they sure got lot of fights playing shinny on the ice.

Chorus:
Scunnin' marbles in the muck, playing tiddley after school
Catching conners off the wharf, firing rocks like bloody fools
Copying pans out in the cove, killing frogs or rats or mice
But there wasn't nothing better than playing hockey on the ice.

We had Bert the referee 'cause he saw one on TV
He made up all the rules, but no one gave it heed
And the worse one of the bunch, Tom would go home for his lunch
He'd do it just for spite, playing hockey on the ice

Brucie's mother tanned his hide for wearing Sunday clothes outside
For falling in the rent or going off the edge of the ice
For swearing there was Harv, swinging fists right from the start
He was all bark no bite playing hockey on the ice.

Oh, when the day would end and the cold and wet would send
Every boy home to work, after supper then
We were soon all off to beds, the only thing in our heads
What we dreamt of every night was playing hockey on the ice.

Chorus:
Scunnin' marbles in the muck, playing tiddley after school
Catching conners off the wharf, firing rocks like bloody fools
Copying pans out in the cove, killing frogs or rats or mice
But there wasn't nothing better than playing hockey on the ice.

Playing hockey (hockey, hockey) on the bays or ponds or coves
Playing hockey (hockey, hockey) as everybody knows.

Are you serious?! There's a song that actually says that?!1 yowza.gif

I personaly liked when there'd be some shoving going on(not really a fight) they'd play "Headstrong". I love that song and it really fits with hockey.

Has anyone ever changed a real song to make it about Wings/hockey, or am I the only one? blink.gif
