Music Played at NHL Hockey Games


There is a lot of music to be heard at an NHL hockey game.  They play music every time the whistle is blow and the game stops.  You better enjoy Classic Rock if your going to watch a hockey game live or on TV because they play a lot of it.  I love the music they play, it gets me all pumped up during the game!


Here is a list of music you can expect to hear during an NHL hockey game.


  • 2 Unlimited – Get Ready For This
  • AC/DC – Anything AC/DC
  • Black Sabbath – Paranoid
  • Darude – Sandstorm
  • Def Leppard – Pour Some Sugar On Me
  • Chumbawamba – I Get Knocked Down
  • Crystal Method – Name of The Game
  • Guns ‘N Roses – Welcome to the Jungle
  • Europe – The Final Countdown
  • Journey – Don’t Stop Believing
  • Kiss – Rock & Roll All Night
  • Marilyn Manson – Beautiful People
  • Metallica – Enter Sandman
  • Nickelback – Saturday
  • Ozzy Osbourne – Crazy Train
  • Paul Leka – Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye
  • Quiet Riot – Come On Feel The Noise
  • Queen – We Will Rock You!
  • Rage Against the Machine – Renegades of Funk
  • Stompin’ Tom Connors – The Hockey Song
  • Tragically Hip – Fifty Mission Cap
  • Trooper – Raise a Little Hell
  • Twisted Sister – We’re Not Gonna Take It
  • Van Halen – Panama
  • Zombie Nation – Kernkraft 400


The song that gives me chills every time its played when the Stanley Cup Champion team wins is:

  • Queen – We Are The Champions


I will forever miss the old Hockey Night in Canada Song  ( The Hockey Theme, composed by Dolores Claman and orchestrated by Jerry Toth ) which is now replaced by Canadian Gold by Colin Oberst.


If you know any other good hockey songs that I missed comment below.

NHL Lockout Is Over

The 4 month NHL lockout is now over as of Janaury 6th, 2013. The NHL and the player’s union finally came to an agreement that is suppose to be finalized sometime this week. 

The league did not announce a start date for the season or how many games they will play.  I’ve heard rumors that the teams will play either 50 game or 48 game schedules.  Hopefully they will announce the dates soon.

Last time there was a lockout (2004-2005) the fans flocked back to the rinks and jumped right back into the game.  Will that be the same this year?  According to my Twitter feed it seems that everyone is excited for the games to begin.

I’m still on the fence.  I am happy that hockey is back but I am still ticked off about the whole lockout.  Many people were out of jobs, businesses lost a ton of money and I didn’t get to watch the Leafs play.  What do you think? Are you excited for hockey to be back?

Max Pacioretty Hit by Chara

The Montreal Canadiens beat the Boston Bruins last night, March 8th.  If you missed that then you also missed the huge hit by Bruins defencemen, Zdeno Chara.  Chara nailed Habs player, Max Pacioretty into the glass.  He was given a 5 minute major and a game misconduct.  The NHL felt that the hit was not intentional and no further disciplinary action will be taken.  Pacioretty is left with a fractured vertebrae and a severe concussion, he is sidelined indefinitely.


  • Montreal police will conduct a criminal investigation into the on-ice hit that sent Habs forward Max Pacioretty to hospital with a broken vertebra and concussion.
  • Major NHL sponsor Air Canada threatened to withdraw its sponsorship unless the league moves to impose sanctions to reduce potential serious injuries.

NHL Hockey Games on Pay Per View

I have a been wishing and wishing that the cable companies and the NHL would team up and offer Pay Per View hockey games.

I constantly have to miss Toronto Maple Leafs games because I am in Vancouver and they RARELY ever broadcast them here.  I know I can buy NHL Center Ice, but I don’t want to watch ALL the teams and I don’t want to pay that price because I tend to miss many Leafs games just because of the time zone.

They should really offer NHL hockey games on a Pay Per View basis.  They have football and UFC buy why not hockey??? Its just not fair 🙁  Then they can charge like $10 a game and I’d buy so many games and I’m sure many other hockey fans would.

What do you think about that?  Leave your comments below.

Toronto Maple Leafs Doughnuts

Toronto Maple Leafs fans in the Toronto-area can now show their support by scarfing down Toronto Maple Leaf themed doughnuts!!

The doughnuts are available at 320 Tim Horton’s locations around the Toronto-area.  The doughnuts are vanilla-dipped and covered in blue and white sprinkles whenever the Leafs play a home game.

I’m not sure how doughnuts are going to help the Toronto Maple Leafs win any games but I guess it’s worth a try right?  How much more badly could they play?

I want to get my hands on one of those doughnuts, but that won’t be happening anytime soon since I live in Vancouver.  I guess I’ll just have to go buy a vanilla-dipped donut and put my own blue and white sprinkles on it. Mmmm doughnuts.  I wonder what Homer Simpson would think of these doughnuts?
