NO! WE CAN'T CHANGE THE SONG! I FEAR CHANGE! LIFE WILL NOT GO ON WITHOUT BEING ABLE TO YELL "HEY! YOU SUCK!" AFTER THE DEVILS SCORE A GOAL AT HOME!

 

MY WORLD IS SHATTERED!

For most sane people it's not about what you yell after the song, it's the fact that they want to go all "PC Police" on you for doing it. I really couldn't care less whether someone makes up a chant, and whether it has obscenities in it or not, just that if it does, and I choose to participate, I should not be considered a "bad fan", should not be a target for removal from the stands by security and should not fear about the status of my ticket "privileges" because of it. Uptight people at the games just need to take a chill pill and stop looking for things to complain about. Don't like something? Don't participate, but don't go making a federal case about it either. Just accept it as part of going to a game and deal with it.

And in the same breath, maybe all those resisting should "accept it as part of going to a game and deal with it" and also "take a chill pill and stop looking for things to complain about" since the song is never coming back.

 

The sheer fact so many people are afraid of change is just as pathetic as all those who are complaining tooth and nail about those who don't like hearing you suck and their reasoning.

 

This thread is going to last all season, surpass Koval-gate and zero progress will be made because half will be okay with a new song and others will freak out, complain about a change, and still boo every time we score a goal at home because the song changed.

So what you are saying is the people who added "you suck" to the chant after keeping the goal song the way it was intended to be for about two decades have no understanding of tradition...

 

I am bummed about losing our goal song and took part in the "you suck" chant, but "you suck" was not a tradition until recently.  Rock and Roll Part 2 was a long-standing tradition, and I hate to say it but the "you suck" chant is not a long-standing tradition and in retrospect, it marred what was perhaps the most tenured tradition of the franchise.

Right, the goal song is the tradition we're talking about. "You suck" was just an organic addition. There's just simply no reason to change it. If there was any legitimate basis, it wouldn't matter to me at all. People who cared about our oldest tradition are not the ones looking for something to complain about. The completely irrational people who are offended by the phrase "you suck", and think every environment needs to be bubble wrapped and policed so they don't have to explain adult language to their children are the ones who were looking for something to complain about.

Why don't they ban checking also? What about skates? There's certainly nothing more offensive than nasty cuts skates cause. Replace the puck with a tennis ball, too. Broken eye sockets are much harder to put into perspective for children than a little bit of mature language. And you better stop selling alcohol at the games. If we're going to clean up one part of the game day experience, we need to clean up everything.

I thought the idea was that management would pick the song that garnered the best response from the crowd. I assumed that was the case because then they have final decision over the song.

As if they are going to let Seven Nation Army win.

Well, I meant that management would pick the one THEY decided "garnered" the best response. Basically they are just gonna pick whichever of the 3 they thought was best. I think they'd let that song win though. No way people are gonna yell "you suck" all year over that. Not that it's my favorite or anything. Still want to see "Ain't Talkin' Bout Love" as the goal song.
