I was toying around with the idea of writing, recording and submitting my own...but that one right there is just perfect. Make it happen, please.

It represents way more than 1% of people who submitted votes though.  The fans that post on these forums are probably more dedicated than most, and so are the ones that send in goal song submissions.  If you think these were actually the top three in votes, even disregarding Rock and Roll Part 2, then you are way too gullible.  It seemed clear to me from the get-go that even though they said they were going to test out the three most voted songs, it was obviously going to be three songs that they found suitable.  Just like when you needed to register for a ticket for the equipment sale at the draft a few years ago, but after registering it just took you to a webpage to print out your ticket, all of which had the exact same barcode and number.  It was just a ploy to get more email addresses into their database.  Did you really think someone was sitting there tallying every vote for every single song?  Come on, now.

yea i truely find it hard to believe that those three songs were really the most suggested songs to the team... theres no way with the amount of people booing the sh!t out of them especially last night i felt .. the song was just so out of place.. i certainly believe that they took some recommendations off of what was submitted but ultimately theyre still using whatever they feel they like best not what the fans have asked for.

I feel like this is voting for the President or members of Congress.  Pick the best out of 3 bad choices ... so Seven Nation Army it is.

LOL yeah. All 3 choices sucked. The silence after the goals was noticeable on TV last night. I could also hear some boos.

My take is that they already picked what they wanted and all of this is just a dog and pony show to try and appease the fans. Even if you take R&R pt. 2 out of the mix (as it most likely was the biggest vote getter of round one) I find it hard to believe the three songs used were 2-4.

 

I'm not a R&R Pt. 2 hardliner, I know its over for that one, but they could have at least been honest about things and said here pick from these three songs and not bothered with the bogus 'round one'

This.

 

the top three reasons they would have wanted to change for me would be 1)the song was getting old, try and start something new...2)Distance themselves from Gary Glitter and the negative press about his pedophilia (even though he wasn't getting royalties from the song, just the negativeness about who he is) or....3) The new owners, as well as whoever runs the arena now if it's not them, are starting a crack down because they honestly believe ticket revenue will go up if they try to attract families -> therefore parents hate negative chants and swearing so they won't buy tickets to come to a game and subject their kids to words and phrases the kids already know and know the full meanings of just to piss off the rest of us who are having harmless fun at the expense of the other team and its fans - "childish and classless" though some people feel they need to call it.

 

I'm fine with the first two reasons as long as they would have told people far enough ahead of time what was going on, and not blindside the crowd after the first goal was scored and leave everyone looking around confused ready to continue the tradition that's been in place for years, but they play some other song, so people disapprove and we sound like we're booing our own team for scoring. That was a total fvck up on the part of everyone involved there.

 

I do not however agree with #3 that just because they own the team and whoever runs the arena can now go on a crackdown to kick out people who start dropping f-bombs, starting chants that involve negativity or sexual innuendo or more or less telling us we have to all be nice to each other. Everyone is offended by something, this is the 21st century. You aren't going to appease everyone. If negativity is so bad, like I saw someone ask on Facebook, "why are they still playing 'Big Girls Don't Cry' then when the other team takes a penalty?" It's all in good fun, and if you don't want to participate nobody's asking you to, but there is absolutely no need to start having Kevin Clark go making announcements about "foul gestures" and being nice to each other 3 or 4 times a game. That offends me. Not that I want to go doing that all the time, but that I'm no longer free to because "they said so"

 

I'm fine with anything that goes on in the stands so long as it doesn't lead to fist fights.

 

Want to crack down on people being inoffensive? How about kicking out Ranger fans who yell sh!t out during the National Anthem. That is offensive.

We're pretty much on the same page, but I also don't like that the new ownership seems to think that they're one-up on us little people.  We're not dummies.  Most Devils fans know that these three "fan choices" were anything but.

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.

LOL! Yes, they can. :doh1: Are you even serious saying this? I had to bold it to make sure this thinking gets recognized for what it is. This is exhibit "A,B.C,D+++" about "making it your own living room" and "you can't tell me what to do" (and pretty much everything included). This post pretty much sums up the "you suck" crowd in a nutshell. 

 

Do you understand how to behave in a public place at all? You clearly have an issue regarding kids and families attending games and then you think you can do whatever the hell you like because it's a hockey game . :urg:  You're 31 years old for Christ Sake and you really think/act like this?  :huh:

I agree with you guys, there's no way these were selected by the fans. They hand-picked which ones they wanted to include and "let us" vote for it.

 

The process to license these songs is both long and EXPENSIVE.. Maybe tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars to license a goal song. I don't think they were going to let the public decide the song during this short period of time and possibly not come to terms on a license contract for that song with its record label, etc., or it be too expensive for them. These were prescreened and prearranged.

Then they should of had a list of "approved" songs to choose from. Fail from the organization.

I could see voting for Righteous Smoke only because the other 2 are used by other teams. 

I still am not crazy about any of the 3 but I am sure the more we score (HA!) then whatever is picked will grow on me.
