5 years, 2 WCF appearances, and a Stanley Cup later, people are still bitching about the logo? They can wear plaid for all I care as long as the team keeps performing the way they have.
As for the song? I spoke to the lead singer of the band at Hockeyfest. They were chartered to write an anthem, and an anthem they wrote. It was fun being a part of the video (don't know if I even made it in).
Bitch about the marketing of this team all you want, but I'd wager the Kings brand has never been as strong as it is now. Championships will do that for you.
Also - if you're so upset with the new song, write a new one?
Hey! New song, You suck!
I've written many better songs than this, and I didn't have to rip off "You Are My Sunshine" in order to do it, either.
I was absolutely embarrassed when I heard this song. I bowed my head in shame last night and even heard Rags fans laugh hysterically and make fun our our marketing department. It's all true too, this has got to be the worst "anthem" song I have ever heard in my entire life. It doesn't pump anyone up, it DEPRESSES them. Want high fan energy before a game? play something that will energize them and not be embarrassed about. The Kings org. needs to really stop trying to change **** all the time and let the team speak for itself. Winning creates culture, not ****ty anthems or mascots or laser lights.....mother ****ing winning!!
There is no way on earth the song can be as bad as you guys were saying.
And, then I listened to the song and found out I was right.
I am now planning on being late to games so I can miss this abomination. There are lots of bad songs out there, but this one insults me as a Kings fan. There are a thousand songs with "black" or "king(s)" in the chorus - pick one.
Iron Maiden- run to the hills
Volbeat- a warriors call
Pantera- cowboys from hell
In a millisecond I just picked 3 WAY better songs than that cumbayah horse ****
Snow - Informer
Taylor Swift or Miley Cyrus or whoever - That Horrible Song I Am Sometimes Subjected To While Eating Lunch In A Dining Establishment About Some Girl Who Wears Sneakers And Sits In The Bleachers
In a millisecond I just picked 3 WAY better songs than that crap.
