In honor of the Chicago Blackhawks playing the first game of the Stanley Cup Finals today, I picked their official playoff goal song, Chelsea Dagger, by The Fratellis. The Fratellis are a Scottish alternative rock band, signed in 2005 shortly after a talent scout saw them play, which led to multiple records later fighting for them. Their debut album, Costello Music, was released in September of 2006, leading to mixed reviews, as most reviewers loved the sound, but not so much the message. A second album entitled Hear We Stand, received more positive reviews, it would however, come to be their last release as a band. The band promised moew album in 2009, but only last month, the band confirmed rumors that they has split, say that they are working on music, just not with each other. If you need a Fratellis fix though, you can always check out Codeine Velvet Club, the new band fronted by Jon Fratelli, whose debut album has been a blast. Also, don't forget to cheer for the Blackhawks tonight!!!
