Venture ye, into the mouth of madness

It's a testament to hockey fandom's absurdist sense of humour — not to mention the failings of online democracy — that this ridiculous cacophony of screaming babies, screeching cats and shotgun blasts is currently the front-runner in CBC's ill-conceived "Canada's Hockey Anthem Challenge" to become the new Hockey Night in Canada theme song:



Here's the thing I wrote at that place I work for. But really, Greg Wyshynski's post at Puck Daddy has everything you need to know about Logan Aube's soon-to-be-classic "Hockey Scores."

What a piece of shit.

Luckily it got in some religious propaganda at the end.

A friend of a friend did this one, which I think is pretty slick and professional. I don't end up whistling it as a I walk around my house, but it at least shows that some submitters know what they are doing.

All right. I've been inspired to do my own entry, dammit!

I'm currently using Hockey Scores as my ringtone. The other crappy garageband mash-up anthems don't even come close to this masterpiece. GOD BLESS HOCKY

Anyone else think Lowetide's tagline should now be Hocky Cat?

Did you just out yourself, Christmas Ape-style? Don't you fear doocing?

Should I be dropping acid before I watch/listen to this? I feel like it may help things go down a bit, ah, smoother.

sigh.

HNIC has been CBC's #1 show for... ever, right? You'd think that the theme song to your #1 show would be something that you'd, you know... lock down.

I find this whole issue depressing, and I think that crappy ear-vomit like this is doing so well because HNIC fans are pissed off. Part of me wants to see CBC fork over $100,000 for a garbage song.

Maybe they'll move a little quicker when the Coach's Corner theme license nears expiration...

Only one thing could make this song better: a giant graphic of David Hasselhoff's head bouncing around the screen as it plays. That would be TRUE hockey.

In fact, I think I'll e-mail the CBC right now with my idea.

I love that song. I hope they use the graphics too. Just superimpose a CBC logo on the cat and slap Bettman's face on the baby and they're all set.
