  • Raptors need a CLASSIC Introduction Song

    Every year the Raptors seem to try and stay hip and cool and end up with a lame top 40 introduction song.

    We need to have something classic we can have year in and out like the Bulls:

    That is something you can be proud of.

    The past 5 years of regularly going to games, I was happy to hear "Hate Me Now" - Nas/Puffy and that only went on for a part of the season. (Kanye - Stronger was good too)

    I suggest The Who - Baba O'Riley or others may know it as the CSI: NY theme song.

    Start from like 0:38

    It's classy and its usability will span far beyond a top40 track being overplayed.
    Entourage: Harvey - "E (BC) was right, there's genius in this (Bargnani)"
    Ari - "You wanna buy it?"
    Harvey - "I do, for a dollar"

    personally, i'd like to see them get a little wacky with their intro music..

    maybe some major lazer "pon de floor"

    or some death metal... cannibal corpse maybe

      ahahahahaha, honestly asking sports arenas to play good music has been tried, and always fails.

        lol... totally agree..

        one time, i was at a top 40 club.. over the music, the DJ goes "who wants to hear some dubstep?".. i get all excited.. not that im the biggest fan of dubstep, but a break in the top 40 monotony would have been a welcome thing at that point..

        he played the britney spears song that rusko produced..

        i wanted to shoot myself.

        same principle goes for the music at the ACC.. any break from the monotony would be a welcome thing

          A classic intro song should be the least of our worries.

          Besides, I'm sure the Air Canada Centre/MLSE has an agreement with a record label and can only play their songs.

            The intro song should be Kesha - We R Who We R with the jumbo tron showing highlights of the Raptors' failed defensive plays and Casey bashing his head against his clipboard.

              Don't be such a party pooper!

              Yeah Heinz, Major Lazer would pump me up. I always feel like punching things when I listen to them. Big things. In a good way!
              Eh follow my TWITTER!

                anytime i hear it, i get all perked up, and look around for things to jump on and throw myself off in a spastic manner...

                except for the beyonce version... that one can suck my gonads.

                    I saw a similar thread a few months ago like thiss, but Baba O'Riley is already used by the Lakers, officially too I think.

                      Ever since the 06-07 season, there hasn't been ONE song that has been used extensively all season long. I imagine it'll continue the same. The best ever intro they did was RATM - Renegades of Funk.

                        I loved the Rage intro, it was my personal fave as well. i know there's already been a few threads on this subject, but I'll stick to this hype ass song:

                        The Double Champ is here!
                        Dynasty King: RRNBADLS7
                        Raptors: Larry O'Brien

                            It has to be disco... Travolta time, maybe even Bee Gees staying alive... the higher the pitch the better.

                            Throw in a little Justin Beiber to show the US we is hot. Who needs Tiberflake when you got the Beiber. (extra jail bait for season ticket holders)
