San Jose Sharks

The Sharks' best-known tradition is their pre-game entrance scene.

The Sharks' best-known tradition is their pre-game entrance scene. At the beginning of each Sharks home game, the lights go down and a 17-foot open shark mouth is lowered from the rafters. As the mouth is lowered the eyes flash red and fog pours out. Then, a live view of the locker room tunnel with Sharks players is shown on the scoreboard and the goalie leads the team out of the locker room, through the mouth, and onto the ice.[26] The Sharks currently use "Seek & Destroy" byMetallica as their entrance song. Previous entrance songs include Metallica's version of "Breadfan" and "Get Ready for This" by 2 Unlimited.

Any time the Sharks go on the power play, the Jaws theme song is played while the fans do "The Chomp," extending their arms in front and moving them up and down to form a chomping jaw. The song played after each goal is a casio keyboard version of "Rock and Roll Part 2" by Gary Glitter. This was changed for one season, 2006–07, when they used "Holiday" by Bay Area band Green Day, but after the season it was changed back to "Rock and Roll Part 2."
