As hard as it may be to believe I am not a music snob. I’ve quoted Ryan Adams, The Weakerthans, Radiohead, and quite a few other bands out there. Most of them are just as available for criticism as any band I could mention in some lame joke about Casey Kasem.
So when I take a look at the Sabres’ musical selections it is a mere curiosity. I’m not going to make fun of anyone’s love for Nickelback or something like that. Still, after every game I check the iTunes selections on the off chance something absolutely amazing is selected.
Today is that day.
Nolan went the simple route and picked from three artists. One of them is Seether. Another is Chevelle. What’s that last pick?
Wow. Bravo Nolan Pratt. Not only did you pick Hannah Montana, you picked her twice.
There are two possible scenarios here. The first is that he did it for his daughter. According to this blog post from the lockout he has a daughter, so there’s that. (Just top notch journalism around here…)
The other possibility, which I find much more appealing, is that Nolan Pratt is downright hysterical. He got the chance to pick songs to be played in front of 18,790 people that show off his unique musical tastes and he picked the stylings of an imaginary child of Billy Ray Cyrus. Outstanding.
What’s that? Maybe he actually likes her? Nah, then he’d be a huuuuuge loser. Psh.
