It doesn't matter how long ago you found out about it; Holiday Road's association with the 2013 Chicago Blackhawks has been wacky and unexpected. From humble beginnings as the theme track to a series of Chevy Chase movies, Holiday Road now holds the honorable title as the Unofficial Theme of Your Chicago Blackhawks thanks to a hockey blog that gave their friend a hard time about his earworm. Adopted by a small group of Blackhawks fans as the unofficial 2013 playoff anthem, it eventually became the inside joke almost everybody was in on, confusing the few who weren't. The Lindsey Buckingham song played before each home game including and following game 7 against the Detroit Red Wings and cemented itself a strange but special place in the hearts of Blackhawks fans everywhere.

During the Hockeenight onslaught of terror on Wolter's brain, Wolter came up with the genuine idea of replacing the Cubs' victory song "Go Cubs Go" with Holiday Road. They liked his proposal but the crowd embraced it as the informal Blackhawks victory song instead, "since the Blackhawks were actually winning games."
