Making The Case For A New Goal Song (Vol. 2)

I’m sure you’ve all heard the Devils are letting you pick the new goal song.  There are so many choices available.  So your friendly neighborhood General Tim here would like to help you in making that decision.  Be sure to check out Volume 1 for tips on helping you make your choice.

So today’s choices are going to be Bro Hymn by Pennywise, Hell Yeahh by Rev Theory, and Uprising by Muse.

Making The Case For A New Goal Song (Vol. 1)

So the Devils organization has decided to let the fans choose the next goal song.  It’s a fantastic opportunity to let your voice heard (AGAIN!) and choose what YOU fans want to yell, cheer, sing along to, etc.  Now there are a lot of good choices out there.  So how do you pick and choose what is the right one?

Well your good friend Tim has the answer for you.  I have cut the Devils goal horn with numerous songs that I have seen mentioned on social media and message boards and also taken a few suggestions from my own brain.  Some you may find good. Some you may find terrible.  It’s all subjective.  But over the next few days I will be singling out a few of these songs and stating my case for why a certain song works.

Now when I’m not blogging for all of you fine folks out here on the intertubes, I have a career in music licensing.  You know those songs that you hear in TV shows, movies, commercials, and trailers?  Yeah I pick those.  So this is right up my alley.  If there’s one rule/thought that I want you all to have it’s this…Pick the RIGHT song, not necessarily the one you want.  We all have our ideas of what we want as the goal song.  I’ve seen the tweets.  But when it’s laid out for you, sometimes it’s not what you had hoped.  I had my idea of what I wanted until I started this project and it changed 3 times.  I finally have my Number 1 choice.  So that’s why I did this.  So let’s start with three songs today.  Howl by The Gaslight Anthem, Light ‘Em Up by Fall Out Boy, and Burn It To The Ground by Nickelback.

The Long Distance Fan

Today is the day, the home opener for our NJ Devils. My Facebook and Twitter feeds are abuzz, and like an unopened present on Christmas morning, a FB request to meet at the Digital Zone during the 1st intermission from fellow Devils General, Kim Sakavich, for Devils Opening Night awaits a response. I can not make the game. It is not because I have to work or have prior commitments, but I have moved out of NJ. I am not talking about leaving the Tri-state area or living on the other side of the Mississippi River but, rather, packing up the kids, pets and furniture and high tailing it to Washington. No, not Washington DC but the state of Washington in the Pacific Northwest where this Jersey girl flies an airline based out of Alaska to get there. I moved 2,500 miles from NJ to Seattle in a land where Russell Wilson of the Seahawks is a demigod, college football means something, and the Mariners are good for catching the Yankees (cheaply) when they are in town. No professional hockey and the closest team two hours away in Vancouver. I’m not sure how a Devils fan would be received in Rogers Arena now that John Tortorella is their coach and Cory Schneider is tending net in our house. Plus it’s Canada.
