    Okay, so I have three sons in minor hockey. For the two older boys the coach will usually put on some music before and after games to get the kids amped up. Trouble is, it's almost invariably hard rock tunes from the 1980s or thereabouts - the kind of stuff the coach (and me) would have listened to as kids. It has very little impact on the kids today. But one time somehow Old Town Road got slipped into the mix and the kids all went nuts for it.

    I'm the head coach for my youngest boy. I'm thinking I'll start playing some tunes on game day too. But I'm looking for some suggestions of songs that are:

    -uptempo,
    -released in this millenium; and
    -no content that parents can object to (i.e. no swearing)

    Any suggestions?

    Check out the list of performers at major NHL events, that should be a good source of inspiration :sarcasm:

    Sandstorm on repeat, levels on repeat. That's it, those two songs. That's the playlist.

    Maybe it's cause it brings back memories and I enjoyed the games, but you could try the soundtracks of the video games NHL 12 through NHL 18. There are some not so good songs, but lots of catchy ones that the kids might know.

    You could also ask every kid for their favorite song and then download the clean version of all their favorite songs and make a playlist.

    Sounds like you and the coach need to educate these people. 70s,80,90s or gtfo imo. We have converted many millennials and zoomers to real music. It can be done.

    My 12U team rocks a lot of 20-40 year old music. Because, well, it's the best. And they have smart parents. ;)

    Haha did you have my phone? A bunch of classic rock and Old Town Road cause my kids asked me to download it. My boys do like their classic rock cause that's pretty much what we listen to in the truck.

    As for the teams I coach, they've never really gotten into the music in the room thing yet. I'm not sure why. Sometimes there'll be some playing quietly on someones phone.

    A lot of warmup songs are timeless, my kids don't care really as long as there is something playing. Nothing wrong with mixing some modern catchy stuff with the traditional stuff too.

    If its old town road the kids are probably 6 or 7?

    I was the music guy for Midget AAA last year. Kids go to watch the games so I wanted no swearing.

    I went and found clean versions for most current songs. Made my own playlist and Bob's your uncle.

    I don't care what age you are, there will always be a place in the locker room for songs like:

    ACDC - Thuderstruck
    Van Halen - Jump
    Thin Lizzy - Boys are back in town
    Darude - Sandstorm
    Bachman Turner Overdrive - Takin’ Care of Business
    Metallica - Enter Sandman
    Motley Crue - Kickstart My Heart
    Twisted Sister - We’re Not Gonna Take It
    Hail to the King - Avenged Sevenfold
    Stranglehold - Ted Nugent
    Danger Zone - Kenny Loggins

    Good music is timeless. What next, kids not allowed to use wood sticks cause they're not "current" enough?

    The dressing room is the coach's room. You're not there to entertain them, you're there to make them better hockey players. Use music to put them in the frame of mind you want them to be in. Not to be their buddy. Your "hello fellow kids" attempt doesn't fool them.

    Old Town Road is a must in this.
    Stronger by Kanye is good -- just put in the clean version

    When my son was in U12, the team manager had each player submit a song to a playlist and that was the game day and dressing room music. It was great because the kids got to choose, and there was a wide variety of different genres from rap, to country to alternative rock...

    Yes because kickstart my heart isnt about overdosing on heroin or anything. But at least it doesnt swear I guess.

    Walk with me in Hell by Lamb of God. The kids will be punching holes thru the plexi glass

    As a pump up song it can't be beat. The kids don't listen that carefully to the lyrics ;)

    My kid first heard it as the Edmonton Oil Kings goal song and now it gets played before every one of his games. Which is funny because it's what, like 35 years old? It would have been like me listening to songs from the 50s when I was a kid :laugh:
