Pick the Song that will Annoy Tempestuous Binary for the Entire Avs Season

My girlfriend and I spent a long weekend travelling around the Netherlands, so I missed the last pre-season game.  Halfway through the trip, I managed to get on a computer (I don't carry a smartphone and the like) and, of course, the first thing I did was check MHH.  I was happy to find that I hadn't really missed anything.  Then when I got home, and what the heck!  All this new content had sprung up!  I missed a lot of stuff in those final days. 

Anyway, I've gotten up to speed, now, and for those that don't know, it's time to select the song that will ring through my ears for the next 82 (+?) games.

When Americanario made a Journey reference during a game, I decided to listen to "Don't Stop Believing". Then, right in the middle of the song, Milan Hejduk scored a goal, and a tradition was born.  Ever since that game, I would listen to "Don't Stop Believing" before an Avs game. Clearly, this song brings good luck. Despite Brian Elliott's attempts to disprove that.

Some people complained about the Detroit references in the song, however, so I decided to find a different song, one that the power of MHH can bring forth from the cosmic umbra of my massive modest music collection.

The only game that I saw listened to in which the Avs won was the Dallas game, and the playlist on that night was:

  • Mastodon - "Blood and Thunder"

    Listen here.  This is the fastest song of the lot. If you want something to pump Robert Luongo's tires me and the Avs up pick this one.

  • Christophe Héral - "Hyllian Suite"

    Listen here.  A pregame song doesn't have to be fast and heavy.  Maybe you want to channel a sense of ease and tranquility so the Avs can focus easier?

  • Killswitch Engage - "Desperate Times"

    Listen here.  There is no real connection to the Avs with this song, only that it is the heaviest (at least in terms of guitar tone and volume; Meshuggah and Gojira fans will know what I mean) and has an unassailable groove to it, but it makes me go, "Yeah! Let's do this!"  (Eh, and the title may say something.)

  • Intronaut - "Core Relations"

    Listen here.  Anyone that has paid any amount of attention to my musical ramblings will know that I love this band.  That they were part of the playlist that surely, probably, inspired the Avs to beat the AHL Dallas Stars only confirms my belief that they have supernatural powers.  Are you sure you want to vote for any other song but this one and risk incurring the spasmodic wrath of "Core Relations"?  Do so at your peril!

(MHH editors, if you disapprove of me posting YouTube links - although most of the links are official - I will gladly remove them.)

So, vote for which song you want me to play before every game, and the one with the most votes wins!  If you also want to take part in this four-game-old ancient tradition, please do so.  The more people that do it, the more we can take credit for Avs victories!
