For years, Canada’s had us worried about their ability to function as a sovereign nation, what with all the mounties and socialism. But the province of British Columbia has helped quell our fears by choosing Japandroids over Nickelback as the temporary entrance music for the NHL’s Vancouver Canucks. We’re so proud of you/happy we don’t have to enact any embargoes, Canada.

As The Vancouver Sun reports, the garage duo’s song “The House That Heaven Built” will serve as the team’s entrance music for two home games in the near future after winning a fan vote by a “long shot” (note the hockey pun). Japandroids not only beat out Chad Kroeger & Co., but Guns N’ Roses, Volbeat, and the old standby of U2′s “Where The Streets Have No Name”, the latter of which the team previously used as its entrance music.

In light of the announcement, the team has put together a video simulating “The House That Heaven Built” used as the entrance music, which you can watch below (via Pitchfork).

Now, Canada, if you can get Nickelback into an actual hockey fight, we promise to never make another “aboot” joke ever again.
