Will 'Hockey Night in Canada' be able to successfully replace the old theme?
Wed, September 3, 2008

TORONTO - The CBC received nearly 15,000 submissions in its quest to find a new theme song for "Hockey Night in Canada."

A total of 14,685 entries were submitted to the broadcaster's Anthem Challenge contest prior to the Aug. 31 deadline, CBC said Wednesday.

The network is holding the Canada-wide search after the rights to the iconic jingle that opened its weekly hockey broadcast for some 40 years were snapped up by CTV in June.

Another dumb move from a company with a long history of dumb moves.

I grew watching HNIC with that theme song & my son has started doing the same. It's a staple to Canadiana & HNIC won't be the same without it. It would be like getting rid of Ron McLean & Don Cherry.....wait a secound.....they already tried that !!!

As if CBC can't afford $500 a broadcast for the song, give me a freakin' break !

this is the dumbest thing in hockey since those old cooperalls the flyers wore in the 80s you have probably the most famous theme in canadian history and you decide to stop using it? do they actually think they can come up with somthing better? cbc should put down the bong and get those rights back

I heard this song coming into the world and wanted to hear it leaving. I think it's crap if the CBC doesn't do whatever it takeas to keep it.

What's next, changing the name of the show? Yeah that's what the CBC should do go in a "different direction" with the title. After all the name's been used for so long it's getting kind of tired, right?

What a bunch of morons!

Does a bear sh*t in the woods.

To this day everytime the HNIC song comes on it always reminds me of my late father, as a child we would always watch the Montreal Canadians (6 team leaque) every saturday night together, with his coffee in hand and export plain tobacco he'd settle in his easy chair roll up a smoke and swear in french at the Canadians if they weren't playing well, which was rare.To take away that theme song the CBC is taking away memories and history for many many Canadians, WHY?

The management at the CBC has proven time and again that they have no idea what they're doing. Why do we, the taxpayers, put up with this waste of tax dollars on their salaries?

It ain't Hockey Night in Canada without the theme song.

Typical CBC stupidity. Won't watch at all with the new theme! Hockey's the only thing people watch on the damn network.

Good work CBC!!! (That would be sarcasm, for you dimwits in CBC management!)

Why do you feel the need to mess up something people actually like, when you can be off dreaming up more smash hit tv like BORING TOWN or MY STUPID IDENTITY!

I will bet you all the theme song contract will be settled by Saturday!
