Recently the website wejustscored.com was developed where they let visitors listen to the goal horn and song of every team in the NHL. It’s pretty cool and you should check it out. As a result of this website being created, people have begun talking about which teams have the best goal horns and goal songs. Sports Illustrated actually came out with their rankings of all NHL goal horns and songs, which prompted to me to do the same. So, here’s my rankings:
I’ve always hated this one.
Not a great horn, and what’s with the sound effects in the song?
The horn is way too short, and I hate the stupid cannon they use.
Just too generic.
Bad all around.
Not a terrible horn, but dumb, dumb song selection.
There are worse horns, but Buffalo’s lasts too long. Plus, they have a bad song.
Kind of an annoying horn and a bad song choice.
I could live with their horn, but they might have the worst goal song in hockey. Pitbull? Really?
I don’t hate or love their horn, but a very common goal song.
Actually a decent horn. Just not a good song, even though it goes with the “Coyotes” name.
A very mediocre horn, and somewhat of a decent song/chant.
Not a huge fan of the horn they use in Nashville, but a very good song considering it’s a country town.
Again, a mediocre horn and song. I’m not a huge fan of sirens mixed with goal horns.
Good horn, horrible song.
Another good horn, but the song is over-used in the NHL. Plus, the wildcat noises get to be too much at a certain point.
Pretty good horn, and not a horrible song.
Good horn, decent song selection as well. I would have had them higher if they still used “Holiday” by Green Day.
An okay horn, and one of the better goal songs in the league I think.
Very powerful horn with a good song for the fans to sing along to.
Good horn and a custom song. Not bad.
I love this horn, but the song puts a damper on things here.
Pretty good all around here for Pittsburgh. The horn is what holds it back a bit.
It gets tough to rank now. Good horn and song.
I’ve always like the Blues’ horn even though I hate the team. Unique goal song.
Great horn. Good song selection considering they’re the Flames.
Original horn and song. The song is in French and talks about the relationship between the people of Quebec and the Canadiens. Pretty cool.
Great horn, but I wish it sounded three times instead of twice. Good goal song as well, especially when the fans are going nuts.
Very tough to decide whether this should be one or two. No weaknesses with this one.
The best horn in hockey and a very catchy, fan-friendly song.
Sports Illustrated also had the Blackhawks ranked number one, so don’t immediately call me bias even though I probably am.
Update: Sporting News also just ranked the Blackhawks number one overall in their rankings here.
