This.

 

Seven Nation Army has been played to death.  You can hear it in the background of every college football and basketball game. Played. Lame.

 

Um.  Rock and Roll 2 has been played even more to death.

My argument still stands. I've heard of, out of that list, the Misfits, Blues Traveler(all of their one song anybody knows) and that's about it. I've heard of the Bouncing Souls and Gaslight Anthem, but could not name a song by either of them and I highly doubt that I'm not at least somewhat representative of the fan base here.

You've never heard of Skid Row? Even I've heard of Skid Row and I haven't heard of anybody.

My bad, missed that one. Was never a fan really and they were popular a bit before my day. Not into a lot of the 80s "metal" bands.

Skid Row's best known album was released when you were like 1 or 2. They weren't an 80's band  :thumbsup:

 

 I'm an 80's and 90's child and as i get older i get more and more amazed at the generation gap. Probably my parents said the same thing and so on and so forth. But it seems there's such a divide in society between 18-25 and the 35+ anymore. I think you're seeing that in the goal song, you suck and just about anything. It's just noticable maybe because 15-20 years ago the way things were then is just so dramatically different and that's only a short time when you really think.

R&R2 is a goal song. It just fits for whatever reason.  Seven Nation Army is a song thousands of brosefs can fist pump a Bud Light and yell "ohhh ohh oh oh ohh ohhh!" to.  It's played at almost every situation in a football or basketball game. 1st down, 3rd down, 0:30 seconds left no timeouts and on and on.  It just doesn't fit as a goal song.  R&R2 is hardly ever heard outside of a post-scoring situation whereas SNA is everywhere all the time.

 

I think you can tell I'm a lil anti-SNA ;)

58 pages about what song to play for 20 seconds after a goal.  Sad that some of you don't care this much about the product for the other 2 1/2 hours.  Even worse are the people who threathen to stop buying tickets because of it.

 

Glad I'm not young and dumb.

They were on the edge of the 80s-90s and their style is a very 80s pop metal sound, so I lumped them in.

The generation gap is the same as it's always been, that's just you being old and nostalgic. I can't stand when people talk about different generations like they're different species of animals. No, things are not drastically different now then they were 20 years ago. There's different tech, different music, different looks, people are exactly the same. If you think there weren't immature drunk a$$holes in 1985 then I don't know what to tell you.

If you think there weren't immature drunk a$$holes in 1985 then I don't know what to tell you.

 

Almost EVERYONE waxes nostalgic about the time period they grew up.  You'll always have people who grew up in the 40s and 50s telling you how swell it was growing up back then, how people respected each other to the hilt, etc.  They'll leave out the parts about Jim Crow, what Jackie Robinson and others who broke color barriers had to go through, how homosexuality wasn't tolerated at all, how opportunities for women weren't anywhere near what they are now. 

 

I basically grew up in the 80s (was 9 on January 1, 1980, and 19 on December 31, 1989), and on one hand, I can tell you it was a much simpler time, but I can also tell you that a lot of that had to do with where I grew up (Hillsborough, NJ).  It was a small, relatively peaceful place, and not terribly built up yet (it's much more so now).  It was the kind of town that churns out "innocent and simple" kind of memories.  For people who grew up in rougher areas, I'm sure it was a lot different. 

 

With younger people (I'm 43...I'm talking about roughly 15-25ish types), I find there's a lot more disconnect.  Sometimes it seems like they've always got their faces shoved in gadgets, be it a portable gaming system, iPod, cell phone...I have a number of 20-somethings working for me, and during their breaks, out come the gadgets...almost no conversation.  I think people HAVE changed, but I think technology has facilitated a lot of the change.  And I think a lot of parents my age haven't helped...so much easier to buy the kids gadgets and have them hang out in their rooms all day, than it is to actually talk to them, play with them, and spend quality time with them...heaven forbid!  A lot of my parents my age suck...they have their kids, then act like everything they have to do for them and with them is a major inconvenience.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

No, it's different. If you don't understand that 18-20 years ago there was no internet, social media to run your daily life, and your cell phone (if you were lucky/privledged enough to have one) was the size of a walkie talkie then i don't know what to tell you. Oh, but we had pagers and then had to find a phone and have change or a call card. Yippie! 

 

In other words, what you wake up and have today as a norm, in 1992 was a pipe dream, movie-like created technology even. Now gathered, at your age, you don't even have a remote clue (just like i had no clue about my fathers 8 track tapes and 45 records and such) what it's like to live through a generation gap, because you haven't yet. But to say things aren't "drastically different" is not only ignorant it's silly.

Baloney. When they didn't have video games and cell phone and the internet to parent their kids, they just used TV. Tech changes, not the people.

And what planet were you on that you were clueless as to what an 8-track was/is or a 45 record?

The tech available now is off-the-charts though.  You've got multiple channels that show NOTHING but children's programming, and you can DVR the shows they like out the wazoo, if so inclined.  And most houses in the era I grew up in had two TVs, tops, and very few kids had a TV in their rooms.  TVs are cheap now, in relation to what they cost back in my day, and much easier to get around.  It's a LOT easier to plunk a kid down in front of a TV for hours on end than it used to be. 

 

Back in the day, the technology wasn't good enough that parents could almost completely shirk being real parents...some degree of interaction was forced (very long car rides, for example).  Now, in a way, technology almost IS good enough where interaction can effectively (and quite sadly) be minimized.  As long as I buy my kids lots of toys and gadgets, all I have to do is make him a killer playroom or bedroom where he can disappear, enroll him in lots of activities, and my job is done.  I'll get a DVD player for the car, because heaven forbid there might be discussion between me and my children during a long road trip!

I remember the first time i saw my father's 8 track collection. I laughed. Try having a Madonna "Material Girl" teen look at an 8 track tape for the first time and not understand that's what my dad listened to "are you for real"? no need to take me being "clueless" to something literally instead of figuratively.....

They didn't let the fans pick until after management did. And management had picked a song from a NJ artist.

That just doesn't work. How many recognizable NJ musicians are there? JBJ, Springsteen, some other random bands that half the arena has probably never heard of. It's not enough of a pool of songs to work from.

They picked a song from a New Jersey artist who is a Rangers fan. Is there any more deplorable kind of person? And there are plenty of artists from here, what are you talking about? Im just going to throw this out again, True Believers by the Bouncing Souls would be perfect.

There's plenty of artists, I was just saying, when you limit yourself to artists from one state, you're limiting yourself. Would be the same if it was musicians from PA or anywhere that isn't NYC or LA.

 

I remember the first time i saw my father's 8 track collection. I laughed. Try having a Madonna "Material Girl" teen look at an 8 track tape for the first time and not understand that's what my dad listened to "are you for real"? But, it's nice to know you took me being "clueless" to something literally instead of figuratively.....

I was unaware of the other definition of clueless, because from what I understand, the word means totally lacking knowledge or understanding. You can't change the definition of a word by saying you meant it "figuratively".

It's 100% deep fried horse sh!t to say that kids these days are somehow different. Social standards are different, culture slightly different(not drastically), but people are the same. There were bad parents 10-20-30-50 years ago, there is now. You really think there's more absentee parents now then there was before? I don't buy that. If parents wanted to ignore their kids 50 years ago, they did it and probably did it just fine without the internet.

And if they could manufacture cell phones like they do now, back in 1970, people would have been all over them like white on rice.

If you REALLY think that kids are less caring/socially conscious, more obnoxious, *insert negative statement on young people by an old person here*, or that they are somehow fundamentally different from the person you were at that age, you're in denial. If you plucked a 22 year old you from time and dropped him in the present, you'd not be so baffled that you wouldn't get by. You'd be like oh wow, wtf is an iPad, but you wouldn't be thinking who are these people and why do they act so weird.

I'm young and dumb but I still don't understand what the big deal is with the song either way. It's a song, not the franchise or logo or anything.

They could play the Barney theme song for all I care just as long as it's playing often as that means we're scoring.

Kids aren't different, it's that the Devils crowd is different than it was at CAA, and when a bunch of young men get together in a crowd, this is how they tend to act.  Some Just Prefer to yell 'you suck'.

Yea, theres a limited pool when you want your traditions to reflect the culture of the place the team plays in. The Devils are supposed to be the proud Jersey team, and that means a lot to a lot of people who are proud of where they come from. No reason for the team to not integrate the states culture as much as possible.
