A sort-of Ducks tribute by a Sharks defenseman.

This is the video for the song “Uprising” by Muse:

Recognize the tune? You should. It’s played at Honda Center just before faceoff at every Ducks home game.

You might also recall that the San Jose Sharks were the opening-night opponent this year at Honda Center. Recently, the song was added to the Sharks’ pregame playlist at HP Pavilion. Care to venture a guess why?

According to the San Jose Mercury News’ Sharks blog, Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle was inspired:

Turns out Boyle — whose heavy metal interests were part of the early stories we wrote about him when he arrived from Tampa Bay — was the responsible party.

“I’ve been a fan of theirs for a while,” he said. “I think we heard it on opening night in Anaheim and I already had the CD on my iPod.”
