The key to a good goal song is having one that will make fans want to get out their seats to join in the celebrations.
Take the Buffalo Sabres, for example. In a contest earlier this season fans selected “Let Me Clear My Throat” by DJ Kool as the song to hear after every goal scored by the home side. It was a brilliant choice because it's one that you just cannot listen to without bobbing your head.
No, not “Ain’t Talkin’ Bout Love” by Van Halen. Sorry, “Dup Dup” by Mickie Krause. We’ll pass on House of Pain’s “Jump Around” and “Kick Start My Heart” by Motley Crue. And as much as we love “Shout,” we can only listen to the Otis Day and the Knights version.
There can only be one San Jose Sharks goal song and it must be this LMFAO remix of “Shots”:
That is… something else.
There will be three voting periods with the first round running through March 15. The top four songs will move on to round two, which will run through March 20. The final two songs will then face off through March 27.
(The fine print on the Sharks’ website reads, “Fan vote is one factor used in determining winning song along with input from players and staff." So make your voice heard.)
