we have one.  hells bells.  

 I'm rolling thunder, pouring rain
I'm coming on like a hurricane
My lightning's flashing across the sky
You're only young, but you're gonna die
I won't take no prisoners, won't spare no lives
Nobody's putting up a fight
I got my bell, I'm gonna take you to hell
I'm gonna get ya, Satan get ya

 

Hi there Sharkie. Again though it caters for a particular demographic that likes heavy metal.

I didn’t know those bells were from a song until a mate pointed it out to me. When I hear them I’m expecting the cry of “bring out you’re dead ! ” to follow.

I just love the menace in the words, the thumping riffs, the base and drums.  Turn it up as loud as possible.  Run through brick wall stuff.

I get a similar feeling  when I hear Bullet The Blue Sky off The Joshua Tree album live. Without the running through a brick wall bit though !

I’m an Arsenal fan and won’t be singing you’ll never walk alone as it’s Liverpool’s song 

We’ve already got one that I sing at the end of the game (never at the start, it’s an omen)

I also find it strange but am struggling with the metaphor ( although a great clip) !

Not the reaction from Demonland that I had hoped for . 

A bugler is on my to do list . Contacted the cheer squad as they had one but crickets . Hard to smuggle into the G as you need approval from the AFL . I also need their approval to print 1000's of pamphlets to promote the charities QR codes and web addresses . If I sought approval for the Apollo Mission I would need the ok from the AFL , MFC , Cheer Squad , Demonland and wife ( no one likes others meddling in their business ) and it would never get done . Like commissioning a new song .

We need to keep finding outside ideas to help our team . Think Burgess , Williams and Yze . The song is the best pre game song . People come from around the world to hear it sung at Anfield and will do the same at the G . The Dees deserve the best !

Cant get passed status for replying to messages . Tech dinosaur .

We need an Aussie song and it's funny because I have been toying with this very thing. 

Parkway Drive is an Aussie band and we could get them to do a special production for us. 

Song is called Dedicated and you just need to adjust a couple words in the song.

For years I've fought for this
For years, our heart still beats
For the ones who've stood beside us
Still strong, you can't break us

You should know by now
Here comes whats next Through blood, sweat, tears
We're still here
 
Unbreakable!!!

And yes it's very heavy so there maybe a few horrified. 

Ahh but it's all in fun.

Agreed 

This whole idea is ludicrous 

Norm’s Curse can only be lifted in Late September/October

I am a passionate supporter . My wife comes from a good Dee family . Gawny was amazed that my older daughter went to what games at Etihad . Jim Stynes was amazed that my younger daughter had been a member for 9 years when she was 8 . Ron Barassi calls me the other Hutchy .

I would really appreciate a sensible discussion as , at the moment , I am thinking I might have to go up to Level 4 to minimize embarrassment . I did go up the back once 39 years ago to have a joint ( can I say that ? ) .

Happy to rank the suggested songs and have a vote .

It is ludicrous to mention the curse . As I have said it was a fun way to get attention not discussion .

Stand up Sir and leave the discussion if you find it a waste of your time .

It's a great pre game song, really gets the blood racing.

I’m at a bar called Nice Guys in Victoria St, Richmond and literally any song on the mix tape they have on  atm could be our anthem. Lots of Stranglers, Madness, The Jam, The Clash, New Order etc. Anyway....back to the pre-game drinks in the sun. See you all at the G later 😎

Yes, Singing “You will never Walk Alone” is such an original idea.

Looking forward to hearing your suggestion for song NEXT . Do you think it important we have one ?

As I said above saying YNWA is a Liverpool song is like saying I Dreamed A Dream is Susan Boyles song .

Many original ideas are very popular today Sir . Think about Never Tear Us Apart . That was not an " original idea " .

YNWA is not a rivals song YET .

Positive - well done I like the idea of a song

Negative - crap song choice

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc

    HIATUS by KC from Casey

    After their five week Covid19 lockdown hiatus, the Casey Demons were fairly scratchy against Essendon VFL for the best part of 2½ quarters on Sunday afternoon but they finally settled down to motor away to a 48 point victory. With 20 AFL affiliated players on the team sheet, the Casey line up looked the strongest team ever put together since linking up with the Demons but the team struggled to score in the early going and managed its first goal to Aaron vandenBerg late in the first term.
