NHL’s “Wednesday Night Hockey” is getting a makeover.
The National Hockey League is teaming up with Green Day for a brand new opening theme song for Wednesday night hockey broadcasts – a part of their two-year, cross-platform marketing and promotional partnership.
The yet-to-be-released track, “Fire, Ready, Aim”, will debut during the New Jersey Devils vs. Philadelphia Flyers game on Wednesday, Oct. 9 and will also be featured the band’s thirteenth studio album, Father Of All.
While the full song won’t drop until the season’s opener, Green Day did share a teaser with fans via Instagram.

“This high-energy open featuring rock icons Green Day and many of the NHL’s biggest stars is the perfect way to begin the league’s showcase game every week,” John McGuinness, NBC Sports’ NHL Coordinating Producer, said in a statement.
Green Day will also headline the 2020 Honda NHL All-Star Game in St. Louis.
