Leijonat logoFinland’s first and thus far only world championship in ice hockey is definitely an event. Until the 1995 games in Stockholm the finnish team songs consisted mainly of Smoke on the Water (Blackmore / Gillan) and Mats Sundin är Homosexuell (trad.).

During the pillage of Globen we not only robbed the swedes of the gold medal, but also liberated their song. Den Glider In was inescapable in 1995, and even nowadays surfaces occasionally.
