The Minnesota Wild share a home state with late music icon Prince, and they’ll pay tribute in the next NHL season by playing the Purple One’s “Let’s Go Crazy” every time the team scores a goal at their home stadium the Xcel Energy Center. The single memorably appeared in Purple Rain, and aligns Wild fans with the countless other Minnesotans who’ve already paid tribute to Prince.
The song was selected after a fan poll was conducted to help find a goal theme to replace Joe Satriani’s “Crowd Chant.”
Check out a video the team tweeted to announce the song change:
