This thought has been peculating in mind for quite sometime now. Every time I go to a Canucks game I have always felt that the intro music was flat, boring and certainly not imposing to the opposition. Now I know this is just introduction music, but humour me for a moment would you. The best I’ve heard in the past years is Wolfmother’s “Joker & The Thief”, but that fell to the cyclops like powers of Bono and the juggernaut that is U2 (wow 2 X-men references in one sentence) and I can’t remember last years song.
So without further ado here are my suggestions for a new Canucks intro song:
1. Muse – Uprising: Starts off strong and the lyrics will appease the APC types and besides the beat is sick.
2. Metallica – Enter Sandman: Great opening riff and well its Metallica what more needs to be said. It may be a bit old for some of the younger fans.
3. Godsmack – Awake: Again excellent opening riff.
One of these three should be the song for at least the year if not two. Please no more U2 or coldplay!
When the Canucks score I’ve always like Blurs “Song 2”. They should bring that back instead of “Holiday” by Green Day, which is what they have been using during the preseason. Moreover, just for fun here are some songs for certain players.
When Kevin Bieksa or Willie Mitchell gets into a fight or take a penalty: Eminem – Till I Collapse or Iron Man by Black Sabbath
