Hockey fans in Vancouver have voted to make “The House That Heaven Built,” by local duo Japandroids, the official entrance song of the Vancouver Canucks. Via Pitchfork:
If you’ve ever worked out to Japandroids’ Celebration Rock single “The House That Heaven Built”, you know it’s an adrenaline booster— and an appropriate choice for an NHL team’s entrance song. As Exclaim! points out, the song has won the previously-mentioned online contest to become the Vancouver Canucks’ entrance music, beating out Nickelback’s “Burn It to the Ground” and Guns N’Roses’ “Welcome to the Jungle”, among other songs.
The song made it’s official Canucks debut at Rogers Arena last night. Unfortunately, the Canucks lost to Phoenix.
