Stephen Colbert co-opts HNIC Theme

Heh, check out this clip from the Colbert Report:

The funniest thing is the "fuming politician" that Colbert makes fun of is the Alberta premier, Ed Stelmach. Colbert's a little late to the licensing party after CTV sniped the Hockey Night in Canada theme a couple days ago... Anyway, he hails the HNIC theme as the greatest piece of sports-related music since Gary Glitter's Rock & Roll, Part 2 (Duh duh duh nuuuh naaaa HEY! dun dun dun). After Glitter was charged with child pornography in 1997, arenas put a ban on playing the song at sporting events, although I have heard it more recently at some games and it still gives me the creeps.

So you all know part 2, but have you ever heard Rock & Roll, Part 1?? It's essentially the same thing WITH LYRICS.
Gary Glitter - Rock & Roll, Part 1

Alright, I'm sure you're sick of all this HNIC coverage, so there's another full covers post coming up later today.
