Battle de los annoying songs

Welp, I think we all realize now that this year’s Stanley Cup Finals between the Philadelphia Flyers and the Chicago Blackhawks is hardly a battle between two star goaltenders, nor any kind of defensive battle. But these teams definitely have one thing in common – HIGHLY ANNOYING goal songs. And apparently we will be hearing them a lot in this series. Fantastic.

When the Hawks score at their beloved Madhouse on Madison, the place erupts with the mind-numbing song “Chelsea Dagger” by The Fratellis. I had the pleasure of attending a game at the United Center during last year’s conference finals (game 3 – the Wings only loss of the series, ugh!), and I taped a bit of the ridiculous celebration.

*eye roll*

At the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia, their goal celebrations are dedicated to all the Philly brahs and home boys in the crowd when they play “Bro Hymn” by Pennywise. I think just about everyone rocked out to “Bro Hymn” back in the day (no? that was just me? um.), but seriously, Philly? It’s not even the original, it’s like a hyper Pennywise-on-speed version. At least we won’t have to hear them obnoxiously mock a Montreal tradition anymore.

I’d give anything to hear a raucous Joe Louis Arena version of “Don’t Stop Believin'” right about now.
