Toronto Maple Leafs Ditch New Goal Song after Receiving Complaints

Published October 15, 2023 at 9:04

Just before the 2023-24 season stated, the Toronto Maple Leafs promised new goals songs to replace 'You Make My Dreams Come True' by Hall & Oates, which had been used for the past five years. However, the team has had to switch things up pretty quickly after complaints about a new one.

While the team said several tracks would be used for the new goal song, the main one would be "Pursuit of Happiness" by Kid Cudi. Apparently no one bothered to check the lyrics beforehand.

"Don't expect to hear 'Pursuit of Happiness' as the goal song for #LeafsForever games anymore. Told they won't be using it any longer this season.

Heard the Leafs received some complaints about the song's message and/or lyrics." - Nick Alberga

If you've never bothered to read the lyrics of "Pursuit of Happiness," the song references drug use and drunk driving.

"Crush a bit, little bit, Roll it up, take a hit, Feeling lit, feeling right, Two AM, summer night, I don't care, Hand on the wheel, Driving drunk I'm doing my thang."- Pursuit of Happiness by Kid Cudi

Going forward, the team has added "Dup, Dup" to it's goal song rotation as a replacement for Pursuit of Happiness. The team will also use at least six other tracks as goal songs.
