“Re-Education” by Rise Against
Part of the reason I’ve selected this song by Rise Against is that I’m certain the Colorado Avalanche made a hype video out of this song, but for the life of me I can’t find it. Every time I hear it, I picture Avalanche hockey scenes from the video.
Anyway, the music itself in this song gets you pumped up. It starts with an obvious build up then just jumps right in with hard rock. The drums, guitar and vocals all pound away with a refrain that’s surprisingly upbeat. (The lyrics are dystopian in nature, but we’ll leave that for now.)
Imagine this song playing just before the team took the ice. The whole crowd would be even more pumped up than we’re bound to be waiting for a chance to “boo” the Minnesota Wild.
