Getting used to my new job so I think every once in awhile I’m supposed to say that we need to change our goal song and offer like nine options. I’m just going to offer up five and we’ll see how it goes.
- “Human” by the Killers
I wasn’t exactly sure what the most goal-song-esque Killers song would be but I think the part when they break it down in Human is good enough for me. I could also see Ronnie Vannucci being our emergency goalie and using drum sticks as his goalie stick and no glove. Band is from Las Vegas.
2. “Viva Las Vegas” by Elvis
This one would be mainly for the tourists who come to Vegas and go to a Knights game and are like “hell yeah man Viva Las Vegas as the goal song that’s awesome!” and only have to hear it a few times before they can think it’s stupid. It’s kinda like how I imagine going to Panama is: you just hear David Lee Roth screaming “Panama!” everywhere you go, and when you get off the plane you’re like “fuck yeah PANAMA! Dun dun da dun dun” but then two days later you’re walking around like a drone just saying it over and over again.
3. “Panama” by Van Halen
An absolute killer track that would have the whole crowd chanting and air guitaring with their friends after every Knights goal.
4. “On Top of the World” by Imagine Dragons
My cohost would never forgive so I’m putting this here to make him happy. Fuck this band. Also from Las Vegas.
5. “Stu’s Song” by Ed Helms
I’m thinking throw an EDM beat in the background and this Hangover classic will probably do exactly what I described in”Viva Las Vegas.”
6. “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” by Panic! at the Disco
Okay this song actually is a certified banger (only if you only hear it once a month and you’re inebriated for at least 75% of them). Besides, hearing “I CHIMED IN WITH A HAVEN’T YOU PEOPLE EVER HEARD OF CLOSING THE GOD DAMN DOOR” after our future captain Evander Kane crushes a knee-down top ched (or alternatively, play that right after he knocks someone out at center ice). Oh yeah, and the band is from Las Vegas.
