Don't know if it would be cost prohibitive but what about each player having their own goal song?

Can you do something with Pop Evil - Deal with the Devil (posted link in other thread). I wish Devils could contact them to modify some of the wording.


And you think our fans are upset about change? I'd love to hear what the artist would say to that or beter yet go over the their forum and hear the fans reaction to selling out.

I would think it would be good publicity for them, I don't think the artist would care so much, he just would want to get paid.  It would be his hard core fans if anything about him "selling out"

Whatever the new song is, IMO it has to be a recognizable song.

Well more to the point it's gotta be a Jersey band/composer cause that was obviously a requirement with Ole and This is Our House.  I hope Bon Jovi didn't get tainted too much because of the latter...Raise Your Hands could actually work nicely (1:10-1:40 in this video, :59-1:29 on iTunes).

Hey hows it going NJDevs26?  Assuming you're the same NJDevs26 on HF.

 

But it doesn't have to be a NJ band.  I picked Hells Bells simply because the crowd goes nuts when they hear the tolling of the bells.  Why not use the song with it?

I post more on HF but lurk here too.  You and me don't think it has to be a NJ band, but the people picking it clearly do, history shows that.  For some reason it's important to the suits that a Jersey-made song be the goal song even if 90% of fans couldn't give a hoot.  I'd be shocked if the vote wasn't stacked in favor of Jersey artists/bands, and maybe even a fan-created song.

 

I wouldn't mind using Hells Bells, but I'd rather it be the intro.  That probably isn't happening for whatever reason though.  Maybe that's become too un-PC friendly too.

I suggested the players goal song thing a while back.  I can see why Lou would be against that though.

You can pick Slowe's song. Feel free to pick RRP2.

Not bad at all.  But it leaves too much room to add "you suck" after the "heys" in the song.  Team likely won't go for it.

 

"Raise your hands" isn't bad, and is much better alternative than "this is our house."  But it doesn't change the objections (no matter how trivial) many people have to using Bon Jovi because (a) they hate him, (b) he's a Rangers fan, and © he supports Philly and is active in the community there.  Plus, the reference to NY in the chorus of the song isn't ideal for a Devils goal song.  

 

"Hells Bells" is great, but it is too slow for a goal song IMO.  Agree with others that want it back for the intro song.

I think this post over at HF is very telling about the situation and should be shared.

 

"I was literally just told by a Devils rep "off the record" that I have a better chance of seeing Bin Laden resurrect than seeing RRP2 come back. Then they proceeded to tell me that they 100% think its "fvcked up" that they're doing this, but the ownership themselves are very dead set on it. The reps at the meetings kept saying how it was a bad idea to change it and that they fear the crowds reaction at every home game. Business tactics and ethics aside, they miss Vanderbeek."

They miss JVB because the new owners are putting them to work.

JVB was laying people off left and right, the turnover was quick; they were totally understaffed. They should be careful what they wish for.

That quote also prompted me to call my rep. He said that he looked at the results briefly and said that a NUMBER of fans are writing in Rock and Roll Part 2 and that it's an "overwhelming favorite". Said that he doesn't know if management will disregard the votes or not but because it's been so many fans requesting that song thinks they might not be able to...

Not surprising but nonetheless interesting, did he mention any others that were frontrunners? Or just R&R2?

 

Just R&R2. Didn't even mention another song. He also said that he believes if ownership wanted to eliminate something it should be the "whistle chant" and not the goal song. And more families have actually complained about that particular chant.

It's impossible to do.
