A couple months ago, we examined the new Canucks’ goal song, “Electric Worry” by Clutch. You might have heard it. It’s the infectious little blues-rock ditty that goes BANG, BANG, BANG, VAMINOS, VAMINOS, after every goal.
Yes, it’s irritating. But any irritation it provides the home fan is mitigated by the fact that it signifies a goal for the home team. The visiting team, on the other hand, cannot be thusly comforted. And that’s the idea.
Anyway, it’s not the only change the Canucks have made to their in-game presentation. Just recently, they also debuted a new pregame light show, and it’s pretty cool. Have a look-see:
The Canucks unveiled this earlier in the month, so maybe you’ve seen it already. But, for those who watch the games on Sportsnet: While Dan Murphy is standing in the zamboni hall saying something or other about tonight’s scratches, this is what’s going on behind him.
It’s pretty awesome.
That is, except for that part when “Where the Streets Have No Name” starts playing. Seriously, can the Canucks get a new intro song yet? I have far stronger opinions on that than I did about Green Day’s “Holiday”, the goal song of yore.
As it turns out, the Canucks adopted Clutch’s “Electric Worry” primarily because the fans suggested it. That in mind, it’s time to start a campaign for a new intro tune. Consider the comments section the suggestion box.Tags: i find this video awesome
