The only way I see there could be a chant is if there is a gap between the end of the song and Larry playing the "gongs." Of course the only chant I can think of right now is the "Hey" (with the music) and then "You Suck" at the end of the music, but that would be covered up by the DONG of the gong.

Anyone more creative at chants than me?

How about chanting the "ohh"s and the "Hey"s in the song...why do we need to add anything?

Mon, 10/23/2006 - 3:45pm

because just imitating the song is boring.....I have no idea what to chant though.

We should throw this awful song out and start from scratch. LOL You can't turn crap into gold by coming up with some stupid chant to a second rate song. Of course, this is just my opinion. I don't like it.

It should be something that makes a statement of some sort...something that is strong, exciting, and fun. Komet Hockey is hard-hitting and fast paced...not like this song.

the more people complain the more likely it is that it will stay and as far as them bringing back RR part 2 well i don't see it happening

If no one complained, Blake wouldn't have a blog. Did anyone happen to realize that we scored 8 goals the other night? I've been a dj for 20 years and I don't care about a song as much as everyone else does. I like seeing the K's score and I could care less what song is being played as long as we score. Enjoy the game folks and be happy you saw 8 goals on opening night and don't worry so much about what you can chant. Maybe we should have a game with no music at all so that people can yell whatever they want and just be happy. But then lot of other people would be unhappy. It's always a no win situation. I gotta stop reading the blog. Everyone has been griping all summer long and just because some of you couldn't come up with a chant after one game, you're mad and hate the song. Give it a chance for once. I would rather play nothing than have people just complain constanly. It's about hockey, Komet hockey, not about a dang song.

were not blaming you larry. its just a backlash against the banning of rr2. ive said it before, they worry about the groups being offended but they laugh and think that the nutcracker is so cute funny and clever. whats the difference?. im more offended about "nut" cracking than u suck! rr2 was a song that fired us up and just added to the excitement. the new song is pretty tame and i dont see it adding to the frenzy after a goal! its just backround music now for the cheering of the crowd. not your fault at all!

Larry, maybe for a game just don't play ANYTHING after goals? Blast the horn and let the crowd take care of the rest? There is no rule that says there has to be a song played after a goal.
For the record I liked the song and everyone in my section was clapping along with it. But I could care less if anything is played as long as the puck is going in the net.
But I see how it is, there is no coach or D-man to kick around right now so let's pile on the poor PA announcer! .....JUST KIDDING FOLKS! ;-)

BTW Tony , it was nice getting to meet you and the future Mrs. the other night. You got to see a little bit of the behind the scenes at the games. It's not always easy (especially all the penalties) but it is fun when things do work out. I know that no matter what is played will never make everyone happy and I can accept that and move on. I wish everyone else would too. Just keep winning and enjoy!

Mon, 10/23/2006 - 7:02pm

$%&#**!@ The F'n Nutcracker hasn't been done in at least 3 years. Get on with your lives you old farts. RR2 is never, ever, ever coming back. It's over. Take your ball and go home if you don't like it. When did a f'n goal song become so damn important? Cheer the goal and get ready to cheer another goal whatever the song is. Just a bunch of old, worn out complainers all over the place.

Mon, 10/23/2006 - 7:15pm

one problem with a new goal song is that everyone's gonna hold it to the standard of RR2.....i'm willing to give Crowd Chant more time and see what we can do with it

Mon, 10/23/2006 - 7:19pm

I don't think you would really have to chant, I think you go do the oooooohhhs and the heys and when it's over you could say YOU SUCK! I just think it needs to come across the PA system more clear. It has potential, if you could get 7000+ doin that I think it would rock.

Mon, 10/23/2006 - 7:22pm

RR2 is gone forever. I would suggest you all take your Ipods and play it to yourselves after goals because that's the only way you're going to hear it at a game. That ship has sailed. All the griping in the world isn't going to change that. That's not rubbing your noses in it, it's telling the truth. Can you handle the truth?

Larry it was a pleasure meeting you as well. We enjoyed and appreciated our afternoon before the game very much. If we do end up with a DJ at our wedding you are going to be the first one we call. We might even get you to incorporate some of the sound bytes ;-) Thankfully I get along well with my future inlaws or some of those Simpsons ones might have come in handy LOL.

Mon, 10/23/2006 - 7:33pm

If you kids don't learn to appreciate what you have, we'll take it all away...lol.

I think my major beef is with the quality that the new song comes across in not so much the song itself. RR2 is gone, right wrong or indifferent. Its not Larry's fault that the sound system stinks. I found that by the 6th large beer the song is actually quite good. So I challenge everyone to partake in a few libations before the onset of the game Friday and see if you come away with a new prospective. Perhaps if you're drunk enough, you kids will learn to appreciate what you have!

Mon, 10/23/2006 - 7:48pm

The sound system was the same when RR2 was played. It's just that it was played for 15 years so everyone knew what it sounded like. Crowd Chant was played at one game. It will be played for many, many more. It took years before the chants started to RR2. No one seems to remember that.

Leave it to the old farts to complain and start pouting AFTER a Komet goal. Yay the Komets scored. Oh, that song sucks, now I'm going to pout and let everyone know how much it sucks on Blakes blog. What a joy that life must be.

Mon, 10/23/2006 - 8:04pm

sorry joe this is a blog, a place to share ideas and complain and criticize and build up and compliment and enjoy. its not a place to blindly follow the company line. life is not a joy as long as idiots like you feel you have to attack other bloggers,
we are on here to give our opinions and have a good time, not listen to you call people names just because they dont agree with you! its old farts like me who kept going to games back in the old days when the franchise was on thin ice. its old farts like the frankes who stepped up and kept hockey alive in the fort. so why dont you keep your name calling to yourself and try to offer something constructive on here. i dont care what song they play cause our section cheers so loud we cant here the music anyhow. plus the nutcracker was done last year so i dont know where you were. my point is that they must be consistant in their reasoning for doing things. if rr2 is so bad , then i think nutcracker is just as bad. if you disagree, then disagree but you dont need to swear and call people names.

Mon, 10/23/2006 - 8:12pm

For the first set of Ohhh's I've worked in "Hey Hey You Suck!" and at the second "He Shoots He Scooooores" and that's all I've got so far and possibly all that's needed...Just a suggestion

Mon, 10/23/2006 - 8:19pm

AMEN!!! Being called a old folk at the ripe old age of 28!!! These young whipper snappers don't know how good they got it! I used to ahve to walk a whole block to my bus stop when I was a kid, up hill both ways! Now they just pick up the kids at their houses! You kids are so lazy! I had to settle for listening to things called CD's if I wanted music, not they carry around XP3's or whatever in small "Pods" called I's! What is the world comming to????

It's just a song folks, people like all different types of music. You can't please eveyone. The only thing I don't like about it is how the Komets wanted fans to e-mail in ideas, this "old folk" spent hours searching through CD and MP3's only to not have a single thing come out of it. I cheer just as loud for the goals if there is music or not, so who cares!

Mon, 10/23/2006 - 9:41pm

Just a thought, but to me the song sounds like "hangin' tough" by new kids on the block, and with that being said, I'm not really a fan of the new "goal song", I would rather have the "oley" song from last year, but that just my opinion. Don't really care what is played as long as the Komets are scoring and winning!

Mon, 10/23/2006 - 10:08pm

Adding onto that chant, how about...

At the first set of Ohh's, yell out "HEY HEY YOU SUCK!"

At the second set of Ohh's, yell out "HE SHOOTS HE SCOOOOOORES"

and then at the end, instead of Hey, yell out "YOU SUCK" after the first hey and then after the rest of the hey's yell out "AND YOU SUCK" (using the AND to cover up the hey) while pointing at either the players on the ice or the vistors bench

Just an idea...

Mon, 10/23/2006 - 10:36pm

Why does every desired chant have to involve "you suck"? How about something more original (and "you blow" doesn't count lol)

Mon, 10/23/2006 - 10:50pm

Your talent is subpar! Better luck next time chap!

Tony E
Mon, 10/23/2006 - 11:09pm

I don't have a talent for making up cheers. That is why I wondered if there was some imagination out there to come up with something a bit more creative than the same old "you suck".

New team, new style of play...new goal song...why not a new cheer?

Tue, 10/24/2006 - 2:57am

Oh good lord, how about a new topic....

Tue, 10/24/2006 - 4:55am

I agree, I don't think we need a "you suck" or anything like that in the song. Lets just go with the oohh's and the hey's and see what happens. If everyone does them together it will be quite loud. And who knows, Gary Glitter just might make another playoff appearence again this season....maybe

Tue, 10/24/2006 - 5:02am

We interrupt your regularly scheduled gripe-session about the new goal song to remind Komets fans about the new group, Komets Krowd. PLEASE JOIN! :)


We now return you to your normal blogging schedule.

P.S. I actually like the new goal song. It beats Ol

Tue, 10/24/2006 - 5:13am

I think THE CHANT was what got RR2 canned in the first place so Tony may have the right idea, either chant something new or don't play anything at all.

My wife and I didn't even notice the song after the first goal. She had to remind us to pay attention to it for the next goal. How important can the song be if you forget to listen to it?

Tue, 10/24/2006 - 7:11am

i like the song and if we're going to chant something it better be PC or we're gonna have to kiss another song good bye.

Blake sure knows what topics to use when he wants the nuts to run the nut house.

can't wait for whiny baby and the piglets to show up this weekend. i'm having pulled pork at the concession stand for dinner that night in honor of the slaughter that will be taking place.
