Punk Rock vs. Don Cherry

Okay, okay. Don Cherry has been discussed ad nauseam over the past few weeks, and his monumental mishandling of the "Ovechkin Coach's Corner" is just a few days old.

But that's not stopping secular punk rockers Propagandhi from serenading Hockey Night in Canada's staple segment with a song.

The song, "Dear Coach's Corner," is written to the show and subdued cohost Ron MacLean and takes this shot at Don "Grapes" Cherry.

"But I guess it comes down to what kind of world you want to live in, and if diversity is disagreement, and disagreement is treason, well don't be surprised if we find ourselves reaping a strange and bitter fruit that sad old man beside you keeps feeding to young minds as virtue."

Ovechkin approved.


  1. Propaghandi rules. You should check out more of their stuff, great Canadian rock band and a great F YOu to Cherry!

  2. I can't say I'm much of a punk-rock fan, but the message defiently is NOT lost on me. Thanks for the enlightening.

  3. Great find, it's a great message as well. The Canadian Way should not be shutting out others because some man in a clown suit says so. I'm going to have to come back here more often. Nice blog!
