Well, another season of hockey is in the books, with the L.A. Kings hoisting the Stanley Cup for the first time. And while the sport is nearly as popular as reruns of Spongebob Squarepants, some people want to know the important questions, like what music the two teams that battled it out for Lord Stanley jammed to when getting pumped to skate. Luckily, Fuse has come to the rescue, and yeah, their answers are pretty disappointing. While Metallica gets a mention from both teams, that’s about as heavy as it gets.
As far as other genres, there’s a lot of country and electronic dance music mentioned. I have no idea who Calvin Harris or Avicii is, but they’re mentioned by both teams, along with Deadmau5, Kaskade, Tiesto and others. On the country side, Brooks and Dunn and Keith Urban are among those shouted out.
Other bands brought up? Kings center Colin Fraser gives a shout out to Nickelback, while the Devils’ Mark Fayne likes Hootie and the Blowfish. Both teams like Coldplay. Meanwhile, the Kings’ Matt Greene is made fun of for liking Bruce Springsteen. Really, there’s no other way around it: While the Devils and Kings might be the two greatest hockey teams in North America, their taste in music is pretty awful. And for such a physical, violent and sometimes bloody sport, it’s surprising how tame the music they listen to is. Check out the Devils’ clip after the jump.
