On Friday, The Hockey News Twitter account posed a question to fans: Should the NHL let players choose their own individual goal song when they score?

I was conflicted, but most responders to the poll were not with 75% of voters saying that players SHOULD get to select their own soundtrack when they light the lamp.

Individual goal songs? 5 picks for the NY Islanders

This concept isn't new, the Washington Capitals have been doing it for a few years now and Islanders fans might be more inclined to vote YES because the perfectly mediocre "Crowd Chant" by Joe Satriani doesn't generate a passionate defense.

On the flip side, there is something very special about a goal song done right in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. When thinking bout the Chicago Blackhawks championship, you remember Chelsea Dagger playing after big goals. As corny as some may feel it is, New York Rangers fans wouldn't trade their goal song for anything.

So because it's August and because the Islanders aren't announcing any signings, here are 5 individual goal song picks for the NY Islanders.
