    couldn't finish it. Was almost as bad as "The Situation" during the roast of Donald Trrump

    Sometimes the intro and anthem is the best part of an NHL game. So it does matter.

    Wanting a better experience from the NHL's product doesn't make us any less hardcore. When you go to a game, or watch on TV, the intro and goal song should get you pumped up, not make you yawn.

    I actually really like Madeon, but I don't think that's the best song to be using by him (if there are any)

    Icarus might be a better choice.

    My proposals would be (for either intro video or skate out):

    Liberi Fatali from Final Fantasy VIII (epic!)

    M83 - Moonchild (go to around 0:45 for the pickup)

    Hell, if we're looking at M83, why not Teen Angst, also.

    There's also Midnight City and Reunion, which has an intro just like Don't You Forget About Me.

    Arcade Fire - No Cars Go (Wake Up is overused, and the Whitecaps use it)

    Iron Maiden - Aces High (I'd say Fear of the Dark, but HIMYM fans would die laughing)

    Phoenix - Lisztomania is out due to the word riot.

    Most obscure song ever: Steel - Heavy Metal Machine

    All are YouTube links. I didn't want to litter the thread with inlines.
     
  7. Got to watch the intro live tonight, and it was a complete joke. The pump up video was a few slow motion shots from the LA series. It was absolutely pathetic.

    I actually liked it at the opener. Good tribute to the fans. Not something I want to see again next game I go to though. I'm still waiting for them to use Ecstacy of Gold. Such a perfect song for an intro, with Welcome to the Jungle when they step out on the ice.

    Actually, perhaps the Canucks should contract CBC to produce intros for us? :P



    Still gives me shivers....

    What do you guys think about this as an opener?

     
  10. Now THAT'S a hockey intro. Not that cheeseball stuff they played tonight.

    I'd pay CBC a lot of money to do the Canucks' intros. They have the best montages of videos, and always, ALWAYS pick a perfect song to go along with it. They'd change the atmosphere at RA if they were in charge, IMO. Would make the experience of going toa Canucks game more fun and intense.

    Bring back Streets. Best intro in the league. Kills me to watch this crap as our intro.

    I can't say I dig it. A hockey intro shouldn't have the same soundtrack your mom has on the car radio. The kind of song she plays with the top of her Mazda MX-5 down and and nods her head.

    Hockey intros should get me psyched! Big hits, big goals, big music!

    CBC literally used Adele in a hockey intro and made it work. They're wizards at putting these together.

    I thought skating out to Map of the Problematique by Muse was a good change, but they should keep switching it up.

    Actually, I think the best Phoenix song to use would be Love Like a Sunset. Amazing slow build that can run over the intro video (might need to be recut for proper timing, since it drops off at like 3:45 and then builds back up, but that shouldn't be that hard). I can hear in my head the siren wailing over the outro section at like 5:45 as the Canucks skate out, would be perfect.


    If they want to go the orchestral route, I'd say use one of the (many) versions of Adagio in D Minor by John Murphy, originally from the movie Sunshine but since used in a bunch of other movies and trailers. Better than the overplayed Carmina Burana.

    Rockier version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHoHqUn6lQY

    Or if you want a rock song with a sweet intro I've always been partial to Deep Six by Matthew Good Band. Plus it's a local artist. Apparently it's not available on Youtube.

    but seriously this would be good (with a little editing to make the intro shorter...)

    CDC has an entry form for song suggestions now!

    My personal vote went to Supremacy by Muse. Cool intro, potential to edit out the slow part or use it as a sort of outro. Now you guys can put all your suggestions into their website instead of HF where DJ Dave can't hear you scream :handclap:
