Deadmau5 asked to create new anthem for Maple Leafs

With a new star saving the team, a fresh logo, and a lot of hype surrounding the 2016/17 Maple Leafs season comes news of an updated anthem for the franchise.

Toronto DJ/producer/stage musical muse Deadmau5 will produce a brand new anthem for the team. It will debut as they skate onto the ice to take on Boston at the ACC tomorrow.

Asked to come up with "something simple, original and different," the electronic music maker didn't use any samples and tried to appeal to the very large hockey audience who will be tuning in every game.

It'll be something "driving and anthem-ish," he descriptively told the Maple Leafs website. A dance song meant to pump energy into the 100 year old organization and announce a new chapter for the team.
