Blink-182’s ‘All the Small Things’ hypes up Avalanche fans during Cup run

The Colorado Avalanche got to the Stanley Cup Finals by doing all the little things.

Not only throwing pucks in the net and winning fights in the corners, but also from fans performing Blink-182’s 1999 hit “All the Small Things.”

It has become the Avalanche’s unofficial anthem and plays every third period in the Ball Arena.

The Avalanche began playing the song at home games in 2019. In a video posted on her TikTok, they explain that team DJ Craig Turney was looking for ways to engage more with fans during games. He performed the song at a home game and got an “incredible reaction” from the fans who sang along.

Turney and the Avalanche decided that the best time to play the song would be midway through the third period, and it has been played at every home game since.

Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge both responded to fans singing their song in the Ball Arena during the Stanley Cup Playoffs and tweeted their approval.

@tomdelonge tweet: We also have a song full of swear words that would sound great if done that way – https://t.co/bPYxTNoS8D

This season, the Avalanche had fun posting references to the song on their social media accounts.

Prior to Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals, the Avalanche edited miniature versions of Gabriel Landeskog, Nathan MacKinnon, Logan O’Connor and Kal Makar on the ice titled “All the Small Things…”

The Stanley Cup tweeted the text, “Always, I know you’ll be at my show,” tagging the Avalanche after they won the Western Conference Finals on June 6.
