MP3 Monday: KardaZ / The Mighty Guins

Posted By on Mon, Apr 19, 2010 at 3:17 PM

It's Monday, and it's mid-April, and the Penguins are in the playoffs. This can only mean one thing: time for a free download of local band KardaZ's "The Mighty Guins" song!

Each year the, er, Guins make the playoffs, the band redoes the vocal tracks to fit the roster of the team that season. It started in 1993 and carries on still -- though, sadly, there's no mention of Ponikarovsky this year (it's usually fun to see how they rhyme names like that).

Last year I did an interview with Bob Kardasz, one of the brothers in the band; that should get you up to speed on the whole phenomenon. Once you've got that, go and download that jawn!

(By the by, Kardasz denies that the unusual nickname for the team was derived from Sophie Masloff's semi-infamous "GUINS WIN!" screech of 1991, but we all know she was the mother of all things "Guins.")
