Best of the bunch

 

though in the end I feel that "you suck" will somehow be worked into it and we'll end up with no goal song

There will be a goal song if only to drown out people chanting 'you suck'.

I voted for Seven Nation Army....

 

I'm also a little ticked about Song 2 being taken away after a win. I really liked it. I also miss Hell's bells and Yanni....

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.   

 

I'm going to disagree. Everyone thinks there is a bunch of unhip, uncreative execs choosing songs like the Bon Jovi one, but the average fan is no better. You ask a fan to pick a song and you'll get 7 Nation Army --the most common, overplayed song in all of sports (granted it is an excellent song to use, just beyond overdone) or one of the other 10 songs they have heard at sporting events like Song 2 or Zombie Nation.
 
Perhaps, there are ton of unique choices, but an outside the box choice is just that, outside the box, and you aren't going to magically get enough traction. That is why choosing amongst the most picked songs was never going to get anything great. There is a good chance the songs picked were some of the most common requested songs, but most never means the best.

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.

 

They probably didn't look through every song submitted, but to say they simply ignored the fans submissions is more ignorant than saying they counted each submission.

 

Geez, do you ever listen to the actual lyrics of songs?  Glory days is NOT about baseball. 

 

The first verse is about a guy who used to be a terrific pitcher in high school, but is now just another adult who no longer plays, but longs for his "glory days" when he was probably treated like a god by his fellow students. 

The second verse is about a woman who was clearly chased by many men, but is now a divorced mom who's having a hard time with her situation, and wishes she could go back to her youth.

The third verse is about the narrator himself, who used to be a bit of a party boy, but is now just an aging alcoholic (notice how he's drinking in every verse).  He's still caught up in his partying hey-day, and bores people with his "crazy" drinking and partying stories.  Everyone knows a guy like this...the guy who's pushing 40 yet keeps telling drinking stories from his mid-20s, because he can't accept the fact that he's getting older, and refuses to live in the present day.

 

The chorus basically states that your best days often fly right by you, and hints that you although you tend not to appreciate them as they are happening, you can easily spend the rest of your life pining for something you can never get back.

 

The song is hardly about baseball.  It's about people who have trouble letting go of their pasts, and are at odds with their presents.  The music and lyrics are actually oxymoronic...the song has a bright and cheerful tone to it, but the lyrics are pretty depressing...if you take the time to listen to them.     

 

Relax man.  I don't care if they don't play Song 2 anymore after wins.

 

I did a search to check, Righteous Smoke was literally mentioned one time on HF before it was announced the song was playing, and that was when someone asked whether the Flames played Light Em Up or not.  Literally nobody else mentioned it beforehand, so clearly it wasn't voted for there.

 

So the one person you know who actually submitted one of the three songs represents 20%?  Come on now.  You can believe what you want, it's probably better to be nieve.  So who, exactly was voting on the songs if it wasn't the fans who actually go to games (since most were universally booed) or the ones that post on message boards?

 

Well considering that very few boos happened during these games, I can guess that several of the people who do go to games did vote for these songs.

What are you some sort of Satanist? Can't have kids wearing "Devils Army" shirts. What would people think?!

 

What do you think this is, your own personal living room?! Leave your satanist behavior at home!

So what? It's facebook LOL. They can seek the attention among a bigger viewing audience then a team board like here or HF. Facebook is not the be all end all to the fan base.

It's the same strawman about the majority of people want the Washington Redskins name changed because you have a segment that's obnoxiously and obsessively vocal. It's simply not true.

I was thinking about posting something about the redskins name here since I live in dc and it has been a non stop topic.

They both come down to tradition vs correctness. the song is part if the devils tradition- it's been there for the franchises greatest moments. But clearly, just like the redskin name, the chant has to go- it's reached a point where the energy and enjoyment it brings to the fans who chant it is overshadowed by a combination of other fans in the arena feeling uncomfortable and a bad overall image of the franchise.

Ownership probably could have handled it better but really there probably was no way to do away with the chant as long as the song stayed.

Yeah ok, having a team that's name is a derogatory term for an entire race of people is the same as fan's chanting "you suck". I don't think there's one person outside of the Devils fanbase who gives two sh!ts about this. That is not the case for the Redskins, as there's a whole race of people they have offended either by intent or ignorance.

The songs in the 2 games i've made it out to this season were awful.  The Nucks game on Thursday and the Bolts last night. AWFUL.  

 

Might as well just let the goal horn go off for a minute.  

 

GO BOUNCING SOULS OLE!

They can't.  They can kick the person out who initiates it by doing the whistling.  That's about it.

I never said they were the same thing, what I said they had in common is that the only reason people are arguing to hold onto them is tradition. To me that's not a good enough reason.

The only reason the Redskins thing is a big deal now is because there are liberal-minded people who feel they have to fight for something, and if there isn't currently a cause to fight for, make one up. I'm sure there was a problem waaay back when the team originally took the name, but obviously all this time it was never a big issue, even the Indian tribes said it was fine they knew it wasn't meant to be racist (so  what they do have red skin! what's so racist about pointing out the obvious!?)

 

Aaaaanywaay... these days some liberal jagoff decided to make a big stink about this and get people all riled up about something that is minor at best. Soon we won't even be able to use animal names because that will be racist, derogatory (relating people to animals) and also somehow bigoted, homophobic, etc... where do we draw the line at this crap? where does it end?

 

You could say god-fearing people are offended at our team being the Devils as it implies worshiping Satan. It sounds ridiculous, but it's exactly the same kind of narrow-mindedness going on with the Redskins thing. All this "equality" crap. People are different, get used to it!

If you look in just about any dictionary, the term redskin is always defined as a derogatory term for native americans.  It's not about how many people are offended by it.

not to devolve this thread into this discussion, but the bottom line is is the name acceptable or not? The fact that it has been the name for 50 years is not a good enough reason in and of itself to keep the name, just as the fact that the goal song has been the same for a long time is not a good enough reason to keep it.
