Petition: Make Whoomp! (There It Is) the new goal song

Earlier today, I set up an important petition. Perhaps the most important petition of our lifetime.

What is my goal? To get the Flyers to change their goal song to Tag Team’s “Whoomp! (There It Is)”. You can sign the petition here.

We all miss Bro Hymn. It’s true. It doesn’t matter if we stole it from the Ducks, it still felt like ours and it felt right. But its time has come and gone. DOOP was Danny Briere’s request, and it disappeared from Philadelphia along with the diminutive French Canadian’s contract. Besides, we shouldn’t be stealing from the Philadelphia Union guys, that’s just silly.

TNT? AC/DC is great, but it just wasn’t working. Gary Glitter? Overused, and besides, that guy’s a creep.

No, no. There is one solution and that is Whoomp.

Why a 1993 rap song? Well, I’m glad you asked. It’s the only song with the proper attitude to bring the Flyers out of their current funk. Let’s take a look at these extremely relevant lyrics:

 

Whoomp chak a laka chack a laka chak a laka chak a

Whoomp chak a laka chack a laka chak a laka chak a

Whoomp chak a laka chack a laka chak a laka chak a

Whoomp chak a laka chack a laka chak a laka chak a

 

It’s evocative of Rick Tocchet’s hard nosed attitude and lunch pail demeanor. Truly inspiring. Or how about this:

 

I produce AKA the undertaker

You want to come down to the underground

Old school – here’s a shovel can you dig it fool

Can you dig it

We can dig it

Can y’ll dig it

We can dig it

 

My god, Dave Schultz himself practically wrote it.

Look within your hearts people, this is the direction that the franchise needs to head in. The song they need to embrace. Do it for the Bullies. For the orange and black. For Philadelphia.

    LOL! I’d rather hear TNT than this… And I think TNT sucks as a goal song. (but AC/DC is awesome)
