Simple Plan to record "punk-pop" version of Hockey Night in Canada theme
After it scooped up the beloved Hockey Night in Canada theme song this spring from rival broadcaster CBC, CTV announced yesterday that Montreal's Simple Plan would be the first band to re-record the song.
The Juno Award-winning band's unique punk-pop version of the theme -- now known as "The Hockey Theme" -- will debut during the Boston-Montreal game on TSN and RDS on Oct. 15.
"This is a very cool and a huge honour for a bunch of diehard hockey fans," said Simple Plan drummer Chuck Comeau. "This song was a huge part of our childhood, and we are all stoked to have the chance to put our own 'Simple Plan' twist on it and to record it for the millions of hockey fans tuning into TSN and RDS."
