All the Small Things becomes a Big Deal in Denver

All the Small Things sing-a-long gets its moment in the bright lights of the Stanley Cup Finals.

All the small things
True care, truth brings
I’ll take one lift
Your ride, best trip
Always, I know
You’ll be at my show
Watching, waiting
Commiserating

Say it ain’t so, I will not go
Turn the lights off, carry me home

Sometimes the spotlight that comes with winning illuminates your elements that may have flown under the radar, like this incredible fan sing along in Denver.  The team created and cultivated this in-game tradition for since 2019 and the bright lights of the Stanley Cup have brought incredible attention to the sing-a-long.

Late night, come home
Work sucks, I know
She left me roses by the stairs
Surprises let me know she cares

Just say it ain’t so, I will not go
Turn the lights off, carry me home

‘All the Small Things’
‘Avs’ fans may still have a final opportunity to belt out Blink 182′s hit single ‘All the Small Things’ in a possible Game 7 with the song having become the unofficial anthem for Avalanche supporters at the Ball Arena.

Recognition for the 1999 alt-rock track getting an airing from fans in Denver is thanks to Avalanche in-house DJ Craig Turney (aka DJ Triple T). Turney decided to give the track an airing at a home game in 2019 and the track immediately caught on with Avs fans and is a classic pre-game chant for home fans.

“They just loved it,” Turney claimed when speaking to NHL.com. “It was organic. It wasn’t staged. Everyone was into it and it was like, ‘Wow, OK I think we’re really on to something here.’”  (Source: as.com)

Check it out in all its glory…

Say it ain’t so, I will not go
Turn the lights off, carry me home
Keep your head still, I’ll be your thrill
The night will go on, my little windmill

(Na-na, na-na, na-na, na-na, na, na)
Turn the lights off, carry me home

Sometimes your best elements will go unnoticed….keep building them. People will notice. Maybe not today, but your day will come.
