I'm loving the revolt against the front office with this song. Now that is what Jersey is all about. You aren't going to tell us what to do or what we want.

Here's something to try, how about playing no song? Just let the crowd be loud and cheer. At least that would be something different.

First time ever I can recall a home crowd booing after a goal by their team. :P

BS. The fans were gonna boo any single song that wasn't RR. They started booing seconds after the song came on.

This comes down to easily chanting "You Suck"

 

Ding ding. The Isles changed their goal song a few years ago and at first, it wasn't good. But they have moved on.

They may not change it back to R&R part 2 but this current song will not be the song for much longer. It doesn't work and everyone hates it.

Yeah, there's no way this new song can last. A lot of the season ticket holders around me hated the change, which is to be expected. But even the casual fans around me who I see maybe a few times a year were totally against it and probably more pissed than the regulars. The new song isn't awful just because it's not R&R Part 2, it's awful cuz it sucks.

That's fine, but I have a feeling fans will get over it when they can chant "you suck" easily into a new song. There was no crazy response the first time RR2 was replaced. People were disappointed, but not like this. It was clearly a favourite for the fans to chant. 

 

I think the team would want the fans input into a new song, but they knew this backlash was coming, so there was no point in even asking fans what they want. 

 

Since it seems it's back to the drawing board....what about the song the players came out to tonight (Light Em Up)? The sound and the lyrics make sense for a goal song.

Haha, that light em up song was so overplayed at least in the US during last year's NHL playoffs, it's become a twitter meme at this point.  But I'd take Adagio for Strings over R&R Part 2 at this point

There was no backlash last time because our fan base had no balls back then. Our fan base has changed for the better since then.

Was it the NBC Sports theme or something? It does sound like it be overplayed, but I can't remember from what exactly. Don't think I'd ever heard the whole song before. 

 

I don't think there is a fanbase that as ever cared more about a goal song than Devils fans. Not saying that is a bad thing at all, but just a fact.

I've never been more embarrassed as a Devils fan as I was tonight.  I agree the song sucks, but it's disgusting listening to our own goals being booed.

Ya but our fanbase now has the balls to boo our own team's goals. That has to count for something.

But it is the perfect time to let the displeasure be heard. I'm glad our fan base has become vocal enough to say they aren't happy. Years ago our fan base would have done nothing about it.

The Devils did this to themselves #changethesongback

 

Nothing about it?  There was a billion protests, t-shirts and other crap the last time which is why they brought it back.  Booing the first time when you realize the shock of them changing the song (and to something utterly stupid and uninspiring) is one thing. Booing the rest of the times is just being a d**k.

Devils fans did this to themselves.  The "You suck" chanters have nobody to blame but themselves.

I'd be all for that at this point...but of course then the crowd would start chanting 'you suck' and it would sort of defeat the purpose of not having a song.  Then we'd look even more pigheaded for doing it.
