About this cheer

This cheer is never officially called. It is typically started by a percussionist, ideally on the bass drum, with the familiar rhythm, followed by other instruments joining in. This cheer is only typically done when a fight is starting or has started on the ice.

Note: One must be careful to not start this cheer (or any cheer) if a player is down or
injured on the ice.

History

This cheer is often accompanied by fans doing the "Tomahawk Chop" motion, since it has historically been used as the cheer for the MLB team, the Braves. It was originally started by Jim Mulder '78, a trumpet player.
