I was told the song was changed because of Gary Glitter. Where did you hear about this one email thing?
That's supposedly why it was removed the first time, in the mid 00's (06 maybe?). It was a league-wide thing, but possibly not league mandated. I believe the NFL officially banned it. Once something was cleared up with royalties no longer going to Glitter, it began to reappear in the NFL and I think Colorado brought it back to the NHL.
We used Ole for a year or 2, and we had the god awful Zombie Nation song the first year or so at the Rock. Then one opening night, it was RR2 again.
