Flames Flames Goal Song 2020's Edition?

With the huge facelift on the team ushering the new Huberdeau/Kadri era and the vintage jerseys in, does anybody else feel like this is time for a new goal song? It's been 4-5 years since TNT.

I love AC/DC as much as anyone and I still randomly play Thunderstruck whenever I'm handed a stringed instrument but I feel like TNT is a bit played out and it's very much something that went with the Gaudreau, Tkachuk, and Monahan era. I'm also a little tired of hearing it along with the yahooooooooo.

I noticed that the Kraken a rocking a cool remix of Nirvana's lithium and I think it would be refreshing for this era to have it's own new theme. I know music is extremely subjective so I'm hesitant to suggest anything. Based on theme alone, I would have said Through the Fire and Flames but the only snippet that would work is the end of each chorus:

We feel the pain of a lifetime lost in a thousand days
Through the fire and the flames, we carry on

CRAZY GUITAR SOLO


...

Screw it. Vintage jerseys so we can't touch a Flame when it's red hot!

Sharing this again 'cause I can't believe they didn't pick this when they did the fan vote for the new goal song a few years ago.

I am not a huge AC/DC fan, as in I don't own any of their records, and they aren't on my rotation. I don't hate them, just never really got into them.

I do think TNT works well as a goal song though. There are certainly worse options out there. Last season, I was looking through my collection and didn't really find anything that I would say is better as a goal song while also being universally recognizable. I was also surprised a little while ago when I saw an article about songs athletes like to listen to to get pumped up, and there was a lot of AC/DC on it. I guess they are still pretty relevant. There were 2 or 3 Washington players that use AC/DC as their personal goal songs. I also think with the JG-Monny-Tkachuk era over, it is probably time for a change. I kind of associate that goal song with them.

I like Gallick's suggestion above. Someone with connections, please send that to whomever makes it happen. And yes, I think "Yahooooo" should probably be retired too.

AC/DC's Shot Down in Flames was the best ever goal song. Bring it back.


And do not ever retire the "Yahoo!" It has and should outlive every goal song.

This one.

Beyond me how it hasn't (to my knowledge) been used already by the flames.

You know in Ted Lasso when the crowd does the ‘Go Sam Obisanya’ chant/song?

That really does need to be a thing for Tyler Toffoli.

Would be absolutely perfect.

The first 31 seconds of this tune would be a perfect goal song. Get the crowd singing:

I personally don't associate TNT with the "Gaudreau/Monahan/Tkachuk era". They have their own individual goal songs, as will Huberdeau/Kadri/Weegar I'm sure. Besides, if Navras can live on in the playoffs since 2004, I think TNT can stick around as well.

It's better than Hall and Oates, that's for sure.

Making a Fire - Foo Fighters

Its a fun livley song that could come in at "making a fire" and then the crowd could sing along with the "Na nah na na na na nah nah" part

I may be a little biased....

TNT is better for sure, but Hall and Oates in Toronto is sneaky good.

Music is definitely something we'll be able to get consensus on

It's only confusing to me because I think it's a good Tyler Toffoli goal song (T&T).

Ok their first The Police-inspired "Standin' in the Dark" album from '83 is actually my favorite of all time but their late 80s dance songs are going to put us firmly into mullet territory.

just imagine yelling HEY, HEY at Mcdavid and draisaitl after they skate in late on the back check on a back breaking goal. It is so perfect.

I strongly dislike AC/DC but “shot down in Flames” was the best goal song so far… I hope it’s not TNT again, we need a fresh song for a fresh start…. Or shot down in flames…
