i could go for the "hey hey hey!" from Van Halen's Ain't Talkin' 'bout Love.


I've been wishing this for YEARS. Can we rally to make this happen?!

Who cares...I actually enjoy the "you suck" chant. I love standing up out of my seat, cheering for who scored, and doing a chant afterwards. Does it matter what we chant? Why should we care what other fan bases think of us when we score at home? Now if this was baseball and every time a run scored, saying "you suck" would be a lot different. But it's hockey, a sport known for it's grit and intensity and the fan base that goes with it.

 

Now of course if it did change to something else I wouldn't care all that much but I just don't see the point in changing it. I enjoy it, personally.

Agreed. Philly fans act like complete morons, Ranger fans act like dicks...why do we have to be the fanbase that turns the other cheek? Not really any pride is being courteous pussies...

Rangers and Flyers fans don't have an embarrassing chant after goals are scored.  They embarrass themselves in plenty of other ways, but not that way.  They don't feel compelled to have a chant that emphasizes the inferiority of the other team rather than the superiority of their own.

 

Also, that Van Halen song sounds way too much like the Rangers goal song.  No on Ole either.  I'd be fine with Zombie Nation until a suitable replacement can be found.

The you suck chant is taken way too literal.

Chant it if you like it or don't if you don't like it. It shouldn't be any more complex then that.

Clearly the majority of the fans like the chant because the majority of the arena does it.

Maybe start about 10s earlier at the beginning of the solo?  I could live with this, actually.

here's the thing with "you suck." if it was used properly, then i could stand it. if it's used when playing the rangers or flyers and when the devils score a goal in a game they are winning in the 3rd, then i could get behind it.

 

i have only chanted it once - game 6 2012 ECF OT. then it was justified and i was caught in the moment.

 

but when it gets chanted for the first goal in the 3rd after the devils are losing 5-0 to winnepeg? then it's awful

The majority of fans do chant it though, that's why this dead horse topic keeps coming back up all the time.

It's close.  At least at the preseason game I was at, there didn't seem to be a ton of people chanting it.

The people defending the you suck chant are not seeing the main reason why people who are against it (such as I). It's not the word itself (I don't think anyone here would say the work suck is even close to a curse word) but the fact that the chant shows what a giant inferiority complex out fanbase as a whole has. It is especially cringeworthy when we are losing 4-0 and then we score and half the arena chants you suck to the other team.

It's not the word, it's how it just makes us look like dumb kids.

I understand what you are saying but I feel like people that hate on the "you suck" are really over-analyzing it. I doubt a lot of people hear Devils fans chant it and judge the fanbase from it. As I've said before, I am completely indifferent to it. I hope they change the goal song though so we can finally put this topic to bed. Hell, I'd probably be willing to put up with a sh!tty hair metal band like Van Halen if it meant people would stop complaining about it.

From my perspective, most of the fans both chant and enjoy it.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

I just hate the you suck people because they ruined a classic. Worse than colorization or Greedo shooting first.

Bingo. No reason for that chant when the game is pretty much decided.

 

It also shows an inferiority complex.

Yeah, probably.  Whether it's 'most' or 'some', certainly a good portion of the crowd chants it.

I don't care much about the chant either way but I do tend to think the people worrying about the chant have an inferiority complex more than the people enjoying themselves.

I don't normally participate in the chant, I don't have an inferiority complex about the Devils, and I don't know anyone who chants it due to an inferiority complex so it may just be my own perspective.

The people who worry about what it means or how it makes the fanbase look seem to be more likely to be comparing groups and worrying about inferiority/superiority.

This song is like an old shirt that's been through the wash one too many times. Sure I liked it a lot at one point, but its all faded and has a few holes in it. By that virtue alone Id use it a justification to replace it. Especially if I'be been wearing it for 20 years.

I don't get why this is such a hot button with some people. This is what it must feel like trying to convince Ron Dugay to stop wearing leisure suits

As I said on HF a great potential goal song would be the new Stone Temple Pilots track "Out of Time".  Maybe it's because I'm an STP fanboy but imagine that clock winding down, we score and the whole arena chants "OOOOOOH YOU CAN'T HIDE, OOOOOO YOU'RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME!" That would be intimidating as hell to another team.

zombie nation is so incredibly pedestrian.

 

Hiphop hurray is cute but it sort of like a stoner goal chant, awfully low key - but it's my favorite of all those mentioned so far.
