“Neocon” by The Offspring
It’s a short song. The fans could easily chant the “Oohhhhhhhhhhhhhh” part, but I love hearing Dexter Holland defiantly chanting, “We will never lose to you!” to close the song out. That’s the sort of attitude the Flyers need to have. We will NEVER lose to you.
“A Warriors Call” by Volbeat
I remember when the Flyers used to come out to this song. It’s fast. It’s powerful. You could just fast forward to the minute mark and just play the “Fight! Fight! Fight!” part. It’s a great callback to the Flyers’ past. It would definitely get the fans psyched up to go.
“Bullet with Butterfly Wings” by Smashing Pumpkins
Ok, this is a little different, and much older than the previous two songs. However, the chorus about being a “rat in a cage” I think could go over really well in Philly; channeling the “underdog” attitude.
“Gettin Jiggy With It” by Will Smith
Ok, we’re sticking with the 90s here. I know it is a cheesy song, but Will Smith is a Philly boy. You know a lot of people at the Wells Fargo Center know this song and could easily sing along. It’s a fun way to represent one of Philly’s favorite sons and a fun way to celebrate a goal.
“Whoomp! There It Is” by Tag Team
If you were alive to see the 1993 Phillies, this was the song of the summer. This song helped fuel every rally at the Vet (along with “Hip Hop Hooray” by Naughty by Nature). So, it has the nostalgic factor that is always a lot of fun. Also, it’s just a lot of fun to sing along to, even if it does make you think of the Progressive Commercials.
My vote would be to bring back “Maria” as the goal song and I hope Briere has some influence where he can do that. If not, we need to do something. It needs to be something that energizes the crowd as well as inspires the team to score a lot. I’m also tired of the Flyers changing it every season. I’d rather them pick something that is ours for years. Afterall, the Blackhawks have been using that dang song for years.
What do you think? What do you think should be the Flyers’ goal song?
